OneForAll remote?

Recommended Posts

I just got one of these remotes and it's one of the best I've used in terms of button layout and feel.

Works great with FLIRC and my TV. Does anyone know if there's a way to pair it with my FLIRC device seperately from my Sony TV? (to seperate the inputs)

 

Thanks

OneForAll remotes are universal remotes. You should have a user manual with yours, which explain how to program multiple different devices on it. Just select a different device button on your remote, program it to some different device than your TV and use that device to program your Flirc.

If you want more information then you need to provide more info yourself. At least what is the exact model of the remote?

So even though I don't own any more devices (other than my TV and PC) I should still be able to pair a random device as a dummy and send signals to flirc?

 

I'll give it a try today. The model is Essense 4 URC 7140.

Yes, that's the idea. I see that this model supports 4 devices. Just select one that is not being used for anything right now and enter some setup code. For example on my OneForAll Simple 4 (URC 6440) I'm using a TV setup code 2051, which is for a Samsung TV (I don't have a Samsung TV) and it works really good with Flirc. To use a TV setup code on non-TV device on OFA remote, you first need to remap that device. It's easy to do:

http://www.hifi-remote.com/wiki/index.php?title=Manual_Programming_-_9xx_Commands#.28992.29_Mode_Map_-_Re-define_a_Device_Button
(this page contains codes that may not work on your remote or work in a different way than described, you should be careful if you want to try some of them - but if they're used correctly, they can be really helpful)

As you can see, the 992 code can be used to remap device button.

From what I can see, your remote doesn't have physical device buttons, but just a MODE button which switches selected device (indicated by LED at the top). Also the Magic button on your remote is the same as SETUP in the instruction. When the linked instruction says: "TAP the "from" DEVICE, (ie, the one you are copying from)", you need to use MODE button to select the device and press magic.

So for example, if you want to use TV code on SAT device:

1. Hold Magic until you see 2 blinks
2. Enter code 992 using digit keys - if code is accepted you should get another 2 blinks
3. Using MODE button, select TV, press Magic
4. Using MODE button, select SAT, press Magic - the remote should confirm with 2 blinks

After that you can try programming 2051 on the SAT key. Hold the Magic until you get 2 blinks, select SAT and enter 2051. You should get another 2 blinks as confirmation.

If you get a single long blink, that means the remote didn't accept the command.

 2051

 

The Samsung code is working great. Afterwards I just manually binded the few select keys from my Sony remote and it's created one of the best remote setups I've had in years. Super happy .Thanks!
