    Hello people,

    I have a WDTV and I've lost my remote so I decided to check around and I've found this forum, I followed Rother's (user) advice and bought the ''One For All Essence 4 URC7140''.

    Everything works fine BUT I cant find the button to change the language of the film/movie.
    Can anyone help me with this?

    Thanks in advance

    Based on what I read in this thread I got a One For All URC7130, so I thought I'd post about my experiences. It supports the WDTV out-of-the-box, but several functions aren't mapped to keys, or are mapped to slightly silly keys (like pressing "MENU" goes to the home screen).

    To map a function to a key:

    • put the remote in the right mode (SAT)
    • hold the "magic" button until the LED flashes twice
    • press 9-9-4
    • press "magic" again (don't hold it)
    • enter the 5-digit Key Magic code
    • press the key you want to map the function to.

    To reset a key to its default function:

    • hold the "magic" button until the LED flashes twice
    • press 9-9-4
    • press the key twice

    You'll need these Key Magic codes:

    00040 Mute
    00052 Subtitles
    00053 Display
    00056 Audio
    00116 Green
    00118 Yellow
    00120 Red
    00122 Blue

    Hi datathief,

    thanks for your reply on this post. I see this function works now, but the thing is that you haven't postet de magic key for the 'language button (key)'. Is there a place where I could get this specific key code from?

    King Regards

    I found the Key Magic codes by brute force. Press "magic" and enter a 5-digit code, and see what it does.

    Alternatively, you can apparently call or e-mail One For All and ask them if they know the code you want. I don't have contact details for One For All.

    EDIT: I've added the requested codes to my previous post.

    Have you considered the iPhone app? Works like a charm.
