Sony TV (1, 164, 3, 151, 119, 26)

 

Sony TVs are quickly becoming more complicated.  There are now 4 device codes being used in the U.S., and the foreign codes, which are sometimes completely different, complicate things even more.  There are also a lot of old, obsolete codes and seemingly, many duplicates of certain functions.  However, the codes for now seem to be pretty standardized for U.S. televisions.  I just don’t know why they use so many device codes!  Why do they use a few functions on 151 and 119 when those could be combined?

 

There’s also the weird 26.26 codes.  I think these are for the DTV tuner portion of some early model HDTVs.

 

Hopefully someone out there could clear up some of the obsolete, foreign and teletext codes, or anything I don’t know what it does as listed in the chart.  If you know any more codes, e-mail me!

 

New are the plasma TV codes.

 

Olive = obsolete

Orange = foreign

Magenta = Plasma TV

test code

 

Sony:164

 

I have discovered on Remote Central that the Normal and Wide discrete HD mode codes do work on at least some U.S. models.  If one of them works you can use macros to get the others.  I still don’t know if all HDTVs can use these codes or whether the others are on some U.S. HDTVs.

Also note that command 61 will not toggle the “16:9 Enhanced” mode on Sony WEGA non-HDTVs for the U.S., unfortunately, since this is a much requested feature.  This function (as of now) can only be done by stepping through the menu, and many people are forced to use a long and frequently unreliable macro.  It does work in equivalent European TVs, from what I’ve heard.

Sony:3 (teletext special device)

 

This device code only works on foreign TVs.  Note that device 3 does not include the device 1 codes like I said before!  Dave Spagnol misinterpreted his results from learning.  Only the teletext codes will work under this device.

Some .ccf files say that 77 and 78 are PIP Zoom Left and Right.  Is this only in foreign TVs, and why are there 2 sets of codes for these obscure functions?

Why did Sony put some of there newer functions here, and some on 151?  It doesn’t make sense!
