          Hi, bkilit77

           

          It seems that you want to know if the Slingbox SOLO will work with the Teledunya OHC 1600C HD receiver.

           

          Unfortunately, we do not have the IR Code that will help you to control ths device with the Slingbox SOLO. With this in mind, I recommend you to check the following thread provided by alanrichey42.

           

          Read this first if you have an Issue with the On-Screen Remote Control

           

          Regards

                            It did not work.But it should have worked i guess.Mine is fx turbo hd..So should be workin may be the file u uploaded is a mistaken one.Can u upload it again if u dont have the only fx turbo model..But anything with hiremco brand will be worth to try.

                            Thanx anyways..

                                Sorry, that's the only one I could find.   And please don't say "does not work", give me a proper description of what did or did not happen.

                                    Actually nothing happened.Pressed to test all buttons but nothing happened that is why i thought it was the wrong file u uploaded!I called the technical guys and they told me it is workin under nec protocol and if you programme logitech with the code 3571 it is working.And the manufacturer code is 80A8.(ıi hope this info atleast helps u alittle because i didnt understand most of it)

                                    Thanx

                                        If you read the README file I say:  "...If you have problems please do NOT just report back it 'doesn't work', that is totally useless for someone trying to understand what is going on.  So please report the following:..."  followed by a number of questions/suggestions that I need replies on.   That is why I get VERY grumpy if someone ignores that

                                        they told me it is workin under nec protocol and if you programme logitech with the code 3571 it is working.And the manufacturer code is 80A8.(ıi hope this info atleast helps u alittle because i didnt understand most of it)

                                        Doesn't help, that is simply used for programming these 'dumb' multi-box remotes you buy at Radio Shack/Maplins...   I am working down at the assembler level and trying to analse actual IR signals and protocols.  It yes, it does use the NEC protocol and it uses Device Number 1 and Sub-Device 253.  I had no problems learning the codes so I have no idea why it won't work.

                                         

                                        But as you haven't done what I ask in the Readme file yet there may be something there that is causing the problem.

                                            Sorry about just telling Not Working.My bad:( I read all the readme from top to bottom and applied all the things.None of the buttons work just not reacting.Afterwards i used the learned one which is double clicking and it is still double clicking..Any chance for my survival:( Still i am thinkin may be the file u upload is a wrong one since u have plenty of them..But just maybe..Hopefully something works pleasee.

                                            Thanx

                                                  Give me a break, even I have to sleep sometimes  

                                                   

                                                  Although I really don't know what you want me to do ?   I've said already that I couldn't find the exact model and that the Hiremco X3TurboHD was the only one that was close.   So if that doesn't work there is nothing else I can do. 

                                                   

                                                  And as you cannot find out how to export your 'learned' remote I can't even work on that.  (And I can't show you a screen shot as to get that option you need to have learned a remote already and I haven't.  All I can say is that no-one else has reported not having that option and I have received dozens of LRZ files)

                                                   

                                                  Sorry

                                                      My apologies for bothering u so much mate:(

                                                      At last i was able to export the learned double clicking remote.I hope this will work for u.

                                                      Cheers

                                                          And my apologies as well, I now see that while I wasn't watching Sling changed the button label from "Export Remote" to "Save to File",

                                                           

                                                          That was a good clean learn and I had no problem decoding it.  Unfortunately it proves that the box does use the codes I used to build the X3TurboHD.

                                                           

                                                          So I have no explanation why that Custom Remote will not work when it is sending the same codes as yours.

                                                           

                                                          Here is another copy of the files so you can try again.  Make sure they are definately the ONLY ones in the \SBAV\ folder when you re-run the Video Sources setup routine to install them.

                                                              No chance i am so unhappy now:(I erased the slingplayer and installed again,reset the slingbox it self and configure again,learned the remote again(still double clicking) but nothing works.The files u sent me just like nothing it is not affecting my slingbox at all.I dont remember how many times i erased and copied them  again and again.Maybe for a last chance i am sending the new learned remote just for fixing the double clickin issue.(instead of writing the codes by yourself)As an ignorant rookie i am just coming up with ideas just dont get mad at me:)

                                                                                          This cable boxes name is Teledunya Pozitek OHC 1600C.

                                                                                                  Anyways i read the link u sent me and the variables i need to learn with ır widget is obc,hex and efc??I am thinkin about tryin to get it learned by a service who has this widget but need to now which variables i will be lookin for exactly??

                                                                                                                        And as i experienced from your learned bin file 'exit' button is not functioning and for other buttons u have to press several times.Do u have a better bin file for Teledünya Pozitek OHC 1600C.Manufacturer Opentech.

                                                                                                                        There is no such thing as a 'better' file.   All the BIN file does is tell the Slingbox what IR Code number to send out when you press a button.   So from a software point of view it either works 100% or it doesn't work at all.   If you are experiencing odd behavior like having to press several times then that is something to do with your hardware setup, maybe the positioning of the IR Blaster ?    Only you can sort that out.   I can work with you over the missing Exit button but it will take a lot of work.

                                                                                                                        PS:It is also very weird they stopped beta remotes!!

                                                                                                                        Not weird at all, perfectly logical.  Whilst I don't approve, I think it was a very sensible decision by Sling.   The IR receivers they had fitted to the Slingboxes were obviously of inferior quality (lowest cost?) and they only worked for some of the time and were extremely susceptible to signal strength.   As a VERY experienced user I had lots of problems with it, I would hazard a guess that their support line was being swamped with other people having trouble.   There was nothing they could do about the poor hardware so the obvious decision was to remove the web site.
