HR20 Remote Question- How do I turn tv on?
Posted 08 October 2007 - 01:12 PM
CSR at D*TV told me I have to first slide the mode (on top of remote) to tv-second turn on tv turn then slide mode back to DTV before getting started. Anybody have the code to the panny remote? Is this what everybody has to do with their tv? Looking for a solution.

P.S. Do NOT try to use RF mode with a TV or any other component. It is only for the HR20. You can use RF on the HR20 and IR for the TV, etc., I believe.

You may find more than one code listed that appears to work, but one of them may work better than others so plan on some time ( mine took over an hour) for testing. Keep a record of what works or not for each code entered. It took some time to learn how to do the testing and find the best code of several that partially worked.
•Start with the slider in the DTV position
•Then move the slider to TV
•Push mute/select simultaneously until the light above "TV" blinks twice
• Enter the code and test that volume for the TV sound works and then test the small Pwr OFF button to see if the TV goes off. IF so test the ON button to power the TV on.
•I then also entered (960 ? check this on the setup screen as it is from memory as I post this) which activated the upper left button for my TV to change inputs as needed. I used mine to connect the HR20 via HDMI, but still have both an HD antenna and the internal cable tuner hooked up for several local news cable channels ( TWC for example) and this lets us switch to other program sources and need to change the TV inputs.
•Test all the codes and keep a record of which functions work. You may find one code best as I did.
•Run the slide back to DTV and test everything again
. Now, if you are lucky to have a supported code. the D* remote will turn both the HR20 & TV on with the upper right buttons, the volume/mute will change the HDTV sound, and the TV input will toggle your HDTV inputs all from the HR20 DTV slider mode.which operates the HR 20.
•Run the slide back to TV and it operates as if the remote is your tV remote. This bypasses the HR20 and assumes you are using the antenna or other input to the HDTV
If you use and external receiver for DD 5.1 sound it is a different situation and I recommend getting a Harmony remote as keeping power on/off synchronized and other issues are beyond the standard D* remote. I think the same applies to DVDs- Yes you can program AV1 or AV2 for DVDs but a Harmony does it better.
