If you wish to post a request for a code, you MUST use the following template. This is the only rule that we have here in the JP1 forums, so I really don't think it's asking too much.

Quite often the person posting a code search request doesn't know what information we will need to help them, so this template was developed as a way to make sure that as much of the info as possible is in the first post.

IF YOU POST A CODE SEARCH REQUEST WITHOUT USING THIS TEMPLATE, YOUR THREAD WILL BE LOCKED AND EVENTUALLY DELETED.

Quote:
1. Device:
2. Type of device:
3. Year:
4. JP1/UEI Remote model:
5. Do you have a JP1 cable?
6. Still have original remote?
7. Checked the file section?
8. Checked Pronto file section (at R/C)?
9. Partially working setup code?
10. Learning remote question?
11. Have you tried the JP1 Lookup Tool?
12. If you have a OARUSB04G, URC-6440 (or similar) remote, have you tried simpleset.com?


(You don't need to actually put the template inside a QUOTE block).

When you make your post, please keep the template labels so we don't have to come back to this post to see what question #7 was.

This is a GOOD example of how to use the template...

10. Learning remote question? n/a
11. Have you tried the JP1 Lookup Tool? Yes, didn't find anything
12. If you have a OARUSB04G (or similar) remote, have you tried simpleset.com? n/a


and here is a BAD example of how to use it...

1. Pioneer X-MT2000/XR-MT3
2. HTS/ CD Mini System
3. 2000

5. no

7. yes
8. yes
9. not as of yet
10. no
11. Nothing there
12. what's that?


Here's an explanation of each of the above points.

Subject:
Please just put the brand/model/type of device (eg, ""Pioneer DV525 dvd player"). Subjects like "I'm looking for the code for a ..." are redundant in the Code Search forum! Smile If you use a subject like that, I will edit it be just the device name, so keep that in mind when you come back looking for your thread.

1. Device:
Here we're looking for the brand and model number (eg, "Pioneer DV525")

2. Type of device:
What is it? Is it a DVD player, a home theater system, a VCR, or something else?

3. Year:
What is the approximate year that the device was made? This is primarily to tell us whether it's something that we can find in the stores right now, or is it a device from 20 years ago.

If you don't know when your device was made, please at least let us know whether it's fairly recent (ie, it might still be in the stores) or pretty old (ie, most likely a discontinued device).

4. JP1/UEI Remote model:
This is referring to your JP1 remote. If you're not a JP1 user, this is referring to your "One For All" remote, or any other remote made by UEI, such as some "Acoustic Research" and "Radio Shack" remotes, some cable company remotes (Comcast, etc) and select OEM remotes. This does NOT refer to the original remote of the device in question.

If you have more than one UEI remote, please list them all. This web site only supports remotes made by UEI. These remotes are usually sold under the "One For All", "Acoustic Research" and "Radio Shack" brand names. (Note: a few RCA remotes are also JP1 compatible, but not all of them).

If you have some other brand of remote (eg, Harmony, Philips, RCA, Zenith, etc) we probably can't help you, not because we're being difficult, it's just that we're only experts with UEI remotes.

If you have a Slingbox, please list this as your "remote", but please mention if you have a JP1 learning remote and cable that you can use to capture the signals if necessary.

5. Do you have a JP1 cable?
If you have a JP1 cable, you can load an upgrade, so we might provide you with one. If you don't have a JP1 cable, we'll try and find a code that's already in your remote that might work. (Note: remotes like the Nevo C2 and OARUSB04G work with USB cables and therefore do not require a separate JP1 cable).

6. Still have original remote?
If you have the original remote you may be able to capture the signals from it yourself, or at least, mail it to someone else who can, so there might be some hope.

7. Checked the file section?
This is more of a checklist item than a real question. The assumption is that you have checked the file section to see if someone else has created an upgrade for this device but didn't find one. Please provide more details if this is not the case. AND REMEMBER, you don't always need to find the exact model that you have as many manufacturers use the same codeset for all models of a device.

If you don't know which folder your file would be in, use the file section search button (don't search the forum):

If you have tested the upgrades for similar models and they didn't work, please say so in your post. If you found an upgrade that partially works, please post a link to it. DO NOT refer to upgrades by the setup code number that was used as this is meaningless to us.

8. Checked Pronto file section (at R/C)?
Ditto for this one. If you didn't find anything in our file section, please check the Pronto file section at remotecentral.com. If you find a file, please post a link to it as we may be able to use it to create an upgrade for you.

9. Partially working setup code (or upgrade)?
Have you found a code in your UEI remote that works at least some of the functions of your device, even if it's just the POWER button or the VOLUME buttons? If you have, please state what the code is (eg, DVD/0571). PLEASE include both parts of the code, eg, DVD *and* 0571. If you just say 0571 we won't know if you mean TV/0571, CBL/0571, etc). If you've found an upgrade where some buttons work, please provide a link to it for us. The more info you provide, the more likely it is that we can help. DO NOT refer to upgrades downloaded from the file section by their "setup code", just provide a link to the file you're using.

10. Learning remote question?
If you don't have a learning JP1 remote or you no longer have the original OEM remote, just put "n/a" for this question.

However, if you DO still have the original remote AND your UEI remote is a learning remote AND you have a JP1 cable, please state what is stopping you from capturing the signals yourself and using that data to create an upgrade? If you've tried and not had any success, please describe what problems you encountered.

If you've tried learning the buttons, but RMIR doesn't display any useful info (eg, it lists some sort of "gap" protocol, or no protocol at all), please post a copy of the RMIR file that contains the learned signals in the Diagnosis Area, then post the template (and a link to the file) in the Protocol Decodes forum. This is where the experts really earn their stripes, as we'll try to decode the signals and create an upgrade to replicate them.

11. JP1 Lookup Tool
We have a tool that lists every "One For All" setup code that we know about and it cross references the codes with the brands and type of devices that use them. So if an official code exists for your device, it's listed in this tool. (Full props to Vicky2003 for creating it).

12. If you have a OARUSB04G (or similar) remote, have you tried simpleset.com?
If you have a remote like the OARUSB04G, you can program it using UEI's simpleset.com web site, where you will find thousands of codes. In fact, that is one of the tools that we use to try and find codes for you. So, if you have a OARUSB04G, please confirm that you tried that site before posting a code request.
