          I've built you a test remote at http://www.hifi-remote.com/forums/dload.php?action=file&file_id=8352

           

          Please let me know how you get on.

                Hello Alan,

                I tried to download this file to control my Cisco 8472, but there is nothing on this link.

                How can I control my cable Box?

                Can you help me?

                Thanks

                  HEY ALAN ! I THINK YOU MAY BE ABLE TO HELP FIND THE CODE FOR THE  RCZ111SJ1G REMOTE THAT BUNDLES WITH  NET BRAZIL'S THOMSON/RCA DCI 1000  CABLE BOX. BEST REGARDS ....

                      Not sure I understand the question.  As far as I know Remotes themselves do not have codes, they simply send codes to devices to make them operate.

                       

                      If you are taking about the controlling the Thomson 1000 then there is a Custom remote at http://www.hifi-remote.com/forums/dload.php?action=file&file_id=7963

                       

                      I need more of an explanation

                              No problem, we were all rookies once    And I can tell you are a rookie anyway by your use of Capital Letters as that is equivalent to shouting in posts and I guess you didn't intend to shout all your question

                               

                              Give that Custom Remote a try and let me know how you get on.

                                  Mate , you're a genius ! It's working on full steam ! I'll set up the customs codes attached there to give full functionallity to the remote . One zillion thanks and I promisse not to shout again !

                                    Just as feedback , the custom buttons are not functional whatsoever . Honestly , it does not matter for me . Anyway , thanks again .

                                        You didn't need to set them up, just select the Menu button on the remote and they are there.

                                         

                                        Does your remote look anything like the attached picture ?   if so I can map the codes onto that one.

                                            Sorry , wrong wording . I meant try them not set them up . No , my remote seems to be the very basic one . Have a look at this screen printout .

                                                    Here it is . Took a while for I had to browse the net to find a photo of it. I am in China and the real one is in Brazil . Must go now , I'm leaving to Alaska ( Airline Pilot's life ... ) ! Anyway , when I get there I'll log in again . Many thanks .....

                                                        OK, here's a present for your return :-)

                                                         

                                                        As before, put the 2 BIN files in the \SBAV\ folder and re-run the Video setup.  Use 'Satellite', 'Other' and 'Other; and S1103 as the Custom Code.

                                                         

                                                        Do you get the right remote picture ?   Do all of the buttons work ?

                                                         

                                                        Cheers

                                                            Hey Al , greetings from Anchorage . Yes , it worked fine ( almost perfectly ) for now I do have the remote layout and 1 extra button ( channel listing ) which was not responsive on the first attempt ( only the language / subtitles were there before ) . Other buttons like mosaic and the rest are still inoperative . Nevertheless , you have already solved an issue which , trust me , is going to make hundreds of families ( brazilians expats living in southeast Asia ) eternally grateful to you . Many thanks on behalf of all of us ,

                                                            Paulo

                                                                OK, that's a bit confusing.   This is the Remote image I have and there is nothing there relating to channel lists or mosiacs.

                                                                 

                                                                Can be be a lot more specific ?

                                                                  • Re: KEY CODE IR

                                                                    Let me try to be as specific as possible , Al . The original remote ( Thomson/RCA RCZ111SG1G )  used by NET BRAZIL cable TV is a customization . By looking at both pictures you will notice that they're very alike ( Thomson / RCA ,quantity of buttons , coloured shorcut buttons , etc ) , nontheless on the customized one each of these buttons have eventually  a different function than the model  in your picture . It happens that on the first files you sent ( C210 ... ) those custom buttons that you've created have the same functions as the customized model ( Thomson/RCA RCZ111SG1G ) however they will not work . On the other hand , on the second set of files ( S1123 ... ) , the remote layout is almost identical to the customized but the buttons won't have the same functions . So in order to have this sorted out it would be necessary to create a customized model in which the custom buttons as in the C2100 would work in the S1130 layout . I am terribly embarassed  to inconvenience you with this for as I have pointed out before , both solutions you gave are already fantastic and solved the main issue which was not being able to change the channels remotely . , cheers ,

                                                                    Paulo

                                                                     

                                                                    P.S.: In case you feel like keeping this search for the perfect solution alive just let me know what info you need and I'll try to provide.

                                                                      • Re: KEY CODE IR

                                                                        OK, that's all good news, I see what you mean now.  So it will now be very easy to produce a customised remote for you.  I have the function codes from the original design and I have the right remote picture so I just need to know which function goes where.

I thought you would make a customization on this Thomson layout so that the coloured buttons would have the functions as per the .doc attached to my previous post . Or have misunderstood your posting on this ?

I thought you would make a customization on this Thomson layout so that the coloured buttons would have the functions as per the .doc attached to my previous post . Or have misunderstood your posting on this ?

I noticed that the functions required for the coloured buttons 2(green) / 3(yellow / 4(blue / 5(magenta) DO NOT need any changes for they're all working properly . The coloured button 1 (red) currently is irresponsive and I would like to action the function

                                                                                                      mosaic . Therefore , the only change I need is for you to add the function mosaic , if possible ,  to button 1 = Red . I  hope this clarifies this last issue.

I`m happy you already have a solution to it! My very basic question is: I`ve searched for this /SBAV/ and I couldn`t find it... actually I suppose that, since I don`t have a Slingplayer installed, I won`t have such a folder... So I`ve tried to download the software, but it seems that currently the only option is to use the web browser based client. Is this correct? Is there a way around? I don`t care installing the Slingplayer, I simply couldn`t find it in the slingbox.com.

Got back from that trip I was and spent several days moving from one place to the other . Now I'm back online. Regarding the green and magenta buttons ( guess those are the ones you've enquired about ) , I really do not have any specific functions for them , so I guess if you want to pick up any one of those functions like PPV or any other thing it will be just fine with me.

I am sorry for the disapperance but I had an bike accident and ended up grounded and hospitalized for almost 4 weeks . Thank God I'm back on good shape because it was a close call ! Here attached is the map of the correct functions for the remote as you have requested. Cheers,

I did all the mentioned procedure and pasted the bin files on the SBAV folder. The problem is that the setup is done through the slignbox website. There I only can input "satelite" and "other" but there  is no other option available, and there is no option to enter the alternative code.

                                                                                                thanks!!!
