    Has anyone had any luck converting these for use on an HTM MX-500? There is a CCF->MX utility, but the MX-500 doesn't even send out I/R when I use the converted code.

    I guess I'll stick with code 1 and learn what I can from my dish 5000 remote, but I'd really like to be able to get i/r codes for the 921 into my MX-500.

    With regards to Pronto codes...

    Does anyone have the codes for Swap, PIP, and Position (for Address 1)? I didn't see these in the sample files which Rudolpht posted (although perhaps I just wasn't looking closely enough). Is there a specific existing Dish Network IR remote which already sends these codes?

    The 721 remote does. I know at one time I borrowed a 721 remote and saved those specific buttons for each remote address. I thought that I had put it online. I'll check...

    Edit: Yes, I did - they are posted in this thread: http://www.dbstalk.com/showthread.php?t=21448&highlight=PIP

    Thanks much, Mark. Hopefully it'll be helpful to folks to have it linked from this thread (i.e. it will make it easier to find without doing an explicit search).

    Do we know if there's any talk of future discreet commands, above and beyond the discreet on/off and discreet SD/HD commands which have been discussed? For example, something along the lines of a "Discreet All Sub" command, which sets the program guide automatically to "All Sub" regardless of current setting?

    I can pretty much say for sure that NOTHING on that front is going to happen until the current problems are solved. After that, it's possible.

    Someone was asking about the Home Theater Master remote.

    I took Mark's great .ccf file and converted it manually into an .mxd file which works perfectly on my MX-800 remote.

    I included macros for going to 1080i and 480p.

    There are a couple of extraneous commands that control the screen shape on my Pioneer 503-CMX; they won't do anything on non-Pioneer TV's.

    I hope some forum persons find them useful.

    Will the codes for the 921 work with the 721? I'm using a 721 right now until the 921 is readily available and farily bug free but I would like to set up my pronto with the 921 files so that when I do switch, I don't need to redo my remote.


    Thanks,


    Ken

    Yup, they should work just fine with the 721, as long as you set your remote address to 9.

    Can anyone share a working RECORD IR code for address 1?

    Thanks!

    If you have any other Dish remote, you can learn it from that. If not, I'll try to get you a code as soon as I can.

    <<My 921 is set to Remote Address #9. If you want to use my 921 setup in your CCF, you must change your 921 to remote address #9 for it to work.>>

    Can you explain this a bit? Can the 921 be programmed to respond to more than one set of IR commands? And what is the default remote address. I know my 811 can use IR codes from one of my basic receivers. It would be nice to be able to use a diferent set for my (soon to arrive) 921. But where do I get the commmands? Maybe you can start a "rent a Pronto with 921 commands" program. I think Dish needs to address this. If the 921 can send IR to other devices, it should be able to send IR to a 921 if you wish. Preferably with more than one address. It should also have a IR input jack as so many upmarket devices do these days. After all this is a $1000.00 HDTV device and most places that will use it will have central IR repeaters or other sophisticated control systems. Thankd for all your help on Dish systems.

    All current Dish Network receivers are capable of using different addresses (usually 16-19). You simply set the address for each receiver using the receiver's remote control. The instructions are in every receiver manual.

    Please keep in mind that the 921 can receive IR commands but that it's remote, which is a UHF PRO device, can only send RF commands. IR commands can still be used with the 921 if you use the remote from another Dish Network receiver or you utilize a learning/universal remote which already has the commands in it.

    The reason for multiple possible addresses for these receivers is so that you can have multiple Dish Network receivers in close proximity without the remote of one interfering with the operation of another receiver. It's possible a neighbor with a Dish Network receiver could control your receiver with his remote so the ability to change addresses eliminates this problem. This also solves the problem if you personally have two or more receivers of your own in close proximity.

    It also makes for an enjoyable Sunday afternoon where you can take your remote, set it to Code Set 1 and drive around the retirement villages near your home and punch in Channel 160 when you see an E* dish. Share your love of today's hippest music with your silver haired neighbors..... They'll thank you for it!

    Ha ha. OK, I don't REALLY do this, but I have had to fight the urge to do so....... It would be fun to imagine the CSRs taking THAT call......

    audiomaster - yes. The IR codes are different for each remote address.
