    Hi there,

    I'm trying to get the following http://www.skytronic.co.uk/product/product.php?s=350.112 remote control power switches learnt by my Marantz but I'm failing miserably.

    Is this a send it back job, or can I "fudge" it somehow? Alternatively, can someone recommend a remote control power socket that I could programme into my Marantz?

    Many thanks,

    Mark

    I'd be very surprised if you could get these working with your RC5200:(

    You cannot learn the RF onto the Marantz, but it can send the RF at the correct frequency!

    I have head that you can use a Powermid to send the RF to and that converts it to IR which the Marantz can learn. Then when you set that page with the learned codes to RF it sends a code that works. Not sure how reliable that is!

    X10 is the easiest/best route if you want ease of use and instant useability. You need a TM13U

    http://www.letsautomate.com/10680.cfm?CFID=985281&CFTOKEN=A86E7E40-1C02-4339-A661EF17F9034021

    That will give you the RF (Marantz to X10) control (This takes the RF signal and turns it to X10 which is then sent through the house wiring to anything connected to that circuit). The TM13U has one socket built in and will work as soon as you plug in and set up your remote, (it does not dim) then if you want extra sockets or sockets that dim you can add those any time. There are also many other X10 control gadgets you can install.

    To set your Marantz to X10 you need to follow this guide (it is for the newer Pronto RU950/Marantz RC5400 but you should be able to work it out)
