|1. Device: Philips 27PT643
2. Type of device: TV
3. JP1 Remote model: RS 2116
4. JP1 user? Yes
5. Still have original remote? Yes
6. Checked the file section? Yes
7. Checked Pronto file section (at R/C)? A little confused about this
8. Partially working setup code? Yes
9. Learning remote question?
I recently purchased a Philips TV, which I am now trying to incorporate into my remote scheme. The TV responds to code 0054, and I have been able to successfully learn the commands from the remote. I would also like to have access to discrete on/off and input selection (which, obviously, are not on the original remote). I have read quite a few posts about the RC-5 protocol, and I vaguely understand how it works.
As mentioned, I have an upgrade that works fine for all of the basic commands. In order to incorporate the desired discrete commands, I have tried entering the appropriate (?) EFCs into Keymap, and then I have uploaded to the remote. Unfortunately, the discrete commands don't work.
I am now thinking that perhaps this model of TV does not respond to discrete commands, which would be a bummer. Any thoughts on troubleshooting this? I have posted the KM file in the diagnosis area as url Philips 27PT643R99
