Newbie here...got a non-modded 6131 yesterday. W/in 5 minutes I had it working my Tos 50in RPTV, Hughes DirecTivo, Sony DVD, JVC VCR, and "most" of the functions of my Technics receiver. Couldn't be much more thrilled and the WAF is huge. Only problems I'm having are with changing the inputs on the receiver. The # keys change all inputs except to DVD. They seem to be set completely random as well (#1 Tuner, #8 TV, #0 CD, #3 VCR or something like that). I tried every combination to get it to change to DVD with no luck. Can I teach it? Also, the "surround sound" select button changes from surround to stereo, but won't change back. Thoughts? Thanks!!

D'oh! Guess I probably posted this in the wrong section of the forum, forgive the newbie mistake.

When you get most of a device working and then ask for help, you should tell what you did to get most of that device working.

I can guess you selected some built-in setup code. But that's just a guess and I don't know which setup code.

Anyway, Technics and Panasonic Receivers generally use the same IR commands across many models. There are several upgrades for them here:
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/jp1/files/3.%20Device%20Codes/Audio/

You should be able to start with almost any Panasonic or Technics upgrade from that folder and be nearly to a complete upgrade for your receiver.

Edit: Oops, just reread your question. You said NON modified, so an upgrade would just be a reference source for possible KeyMoves (if a setup code supporting KeyMoves exists for the command you want).

Thanks John. I can't remember which code worked, believe it was the second in the list. I'll try some others and see if they work any better.

WOW. Just looked at the files on the Yahoo group and can't really make any sense out of them. I know they are to be used for JP1, but w/out that, what can I do?

Those files can be loaded using the KeyMapMaster spreadsheet, which makes their contents a little closer to understandable. But I investigated a little further and don't think it would help.

Some of those files and some other sources I have all say that the DVD input to the receiver is device 160, subdevice 0, OBC 163.

EFC number KeyMoves don't work with setup codes 1308, 1309 or 1518. And setup codes 0303 and 0309 are the wrong subdevices. So, unless I missed something, you can't do any EFC KeyMoves for Panasonic device 160, subdevice 0.

You can use KeyMoves to pick and choose from the functions of multiple setup codes and to rearrange the buttons if they seem illogical to you. So if one of 1308, 1309 or 1518 has a function you need that is missing from another and vice versa, you can combine the "best" of functions from each into one device mode with KeyMoves.

But as far as I can tell, none of those setup codes includes OBC 163.

Sounds like you're using device code 0308. If so, try EFC 093 to toggle through all inputs, or EFC 227 to switch to DVD input.
