At the house we just sold, I had a seperate stereo receiver that drove outdoor speakers on our deck and speakers out in the garage. I used the Home Theater key to toggle between Indoor and Outdoor mode. In indoor mode, the remote functioned the normal way that a lot of people program (LKP of device key to set up inputs, etc.) and controlled the receiver in our family room.

In outdoor mode, I wanted to simplify things since none of the equipment is visible from outside, so I made a short key press set up everything for CD, RECV (tuner), AUX (iPod dock), DVD and SAT. This way, all the normal LKPs were disabled, as well as all the other devices that should not be accessible from outside (TV, Lutron dimmer, family room receiver, etc.).

Also, since I have two Sony 300-disc players, I use the CD device key to toggle between control of the two players, so I don't have to have a seperate device key for both. Using custom mode name ("SONY CD-1" and SONY CD-2" makes it easy to keep both straight.

I also programmed the remote (URC-9910) to turn off the lights when I push play in DVD mode, turn the lights up to a dim level when I push pause or menu, and turn the lights all the way on when I hit stop or execute a LKP setup macro for a different device.


Very cool indeed floyd. I need to do something similar for setting up the remote to control outdoor speakers. I especially like the last part for controlling lighting. Nice!

A good remote design should be really intuitive. One of the best macros I have I learned from ElizabethD. With an Extender and an LKP, she placed a macro on each of the Device Keys.

Vicky, I should have read the whole thread before jumping in, so I missed this.

I took it all from the jp1 experts and regulars and, very early on, from an older thread over at yahoo

I know many people have followed that description as well, though by now it's somewhat dated in terms of details, since IR GUI has taken most of the stumbling blocks out of the construction process.

How did you do it? Multiplex?

I use a ToadTog. One side of the ToadTog does the normal CD setup (DEV_CD, mode name "CD-1", SET_TRANS_KEYS, etc.). The other side does a different set up (DEV_DB08, mode name "CD-2", SET_TRANS_KEYS, etc.).

LKP sets the receiver to the right device, turns both CD players on, etc., no matter what mode I'm in.
