Two solutions required. Onkyo 905 discrete code & Sony DVD region free

Hi all,

I have two problems to solve using the cheapest and easiest solution. Problem one is the most important one so I will describe this first.

I have an Onkyo 905 receiver. I want to be able to switch the HDMI output without having to keep opening the front panel or going through the set up menus. I have found a hex code??? that can be used to program a remote with the neccessary discrete code.

I have a pronto neo somewhere that I don't use but would need a full idiots guide instructions on how do make the codes work with it. (And I mean step by step instructions).:confused: If this is possible, once the code is set up on the neo I would like to teach the command to a spare button on my Onkyo remote.

Problem two is making my Sony RDR-HXD860 region free for DVD. The cheapest and easiest way I have seen to do this is with a one-for-all using codes I have found here somewhere. I may just buy a cheap OFA just for this purpose.

Thanks in advance for any help,

Graham

Hi,

I have exactly the same problem, but I have not found this hex code. Could you share the code with me? Maybe I am able to put it into my Pronto and share the procedure with you.

Thanks,
Oliver

Hi Oliver,

This is the pronto hex codes I found cut and pasted to here.

If you need to make pronto hex code in the future for the Onkyo, download makehex from remotecentral.com and use the nec1.rip included. Convert the 3 hex numbers to decimal and run makehex on the file

Here are the codes

I was going to try the first one as it cycles through main,sub and off.

I used pronto2neo converter to convert the first code to pronto neo format????????? and came up with the following code

0 f 6c 4 60 af 15 40 56 ac 3f 5f fc 42 c 4 40 40 4 40 4 44 0 4 40 40 44 40 4 4 0 bf 4e bc f2 b 21 7c 3


Have a go let me know how you get on.

I found this post and wonder if you can help me. I am trying to determine the Pronto hex codes for an Onkyo product. I got as far as downloading Makehex. What '3 hex' numbers do I need in order to follow your instructions.

Thank you.

I bought a remote of Ebay for about £12 for my RDR-HXD870 and it did the trick. I also used it for another Sony DVD player so I was well happy for the cost.

Hi Rudy,

I haven't a clue what to do with the codes or numbers. :confused:

I found those codes when I was searching for a solution to my HDMI switching problem. I only posted what I had found in the hope that somebody else knew what to do with them. After more searching I eventually ended up with a Harmony One as it had the HDMI switching in the database. I must say I am very impressed with this remote and Logitech customer support have always managed to help out.

Just recently I added an anamorphic lens to my JVC HD750 and Logitech added discrete codes for the 'stretch' function that aren't available on the JVC remote. :thumbsup:

Cheers,

Graham

Darn, I thought this statement meant you knew how to create the codes somehow.

No, sorry about that. The statement was part of the cut and paste along with the codes. I have just spent a few minutes searching where I got it from but couldn't find the exact post. It was either on the Onkyo 905 or Harmony threads over at avsforum.com.

I am looking for the codes for the Integra DHC 9.9. In particular, t.e ISF discrete codes & Audyssey discrete codes. I have the Onkyo .xls which has all the supposed codes that I an input into the pronto software, which I then use to tranfer the IR code to my MX700 remote. I was able to successfully do it with the HDMI select codes. However, the other published codes don't work on my remote.
