Pioneer DVR 420/520 H Infra red codes


Standard Member
Thinking of buying a DVR 420/520H recorder, my problem is that i already have a pioneer DV 464 dvd player, i was worried that they may use the same infra red codes so i would have difficulty controlling the correct device, can anyone clear this up for me, thanks

It is possible to change the Recorder ID on these machines which may solve your problem although I'm not absolutely sure.See page 99 on the manual for the 420.
You can download the manual from the Pioneer website.


I have a Pioneer DVD player (757Ai) and DVR (5100S) and have never had any problems with the remotes controlling the wrong device, so you shouldn't have any problems
