Using Logitech Harmony Remote with multiple Humax boxes.

I have recently purchased a Harmony Ultimate One remote after being assured that the remote will work with the multiple infra red modes provided by Humax remotes. The remote is supposed to recognise the other modes by simply learning a few commands from the remote used to control the box.

After experimentation I find that this only works for modes 1 and 2 and for other modes the only commands that work are the few that are learned. Clearly it would be possible to learn every command but would be extremely tedious and time consuming.

Logitech support have replied and asked if it's possible that this information could be found.
You are correct to say that 1 of your options is to teach all the commands and I agree that it is a time consuming activity.
My sincere apology for this inconvenience.


You can also contact Humax and request the Hex or Pronto codes for the missing IR commands sets.
If they provide you these codes and mail them to me I can have them converted to codes that can be used with our remotes.

I wonder if any of our custom firmware gurus would have access to this information.

Regards

Graham

I don't know how this translates to Hex or Pronto codes but the button codes in the different modes are always the same but there's a mode modifier involved too. As they have mode 2 working, this may tell them how to add modes 3-6:

Modifiers:

Code:
Mode 1, 0x1000
Mode 2, 0x10fa
Mode 3, 0x10fb
Mode 4, 0x10fc
Mode 5, 0x10fd
Mode 6, 0x10fe

Here's a full list of button codes:

Code:
    { "STANDBY",    0x0 },
    { "SOURCE",    0x2 },
    { "ONE",    0x3 },
    { "TWO",    0x4 },
    { "THREE",    0x5 },
    { "FOUR",    0x6 },
    { "FIVE",    0x7 },
    { "SIX",    0x8 },
    { "SEVEN",    0x9 },
    { "EIGHT",    0xa },
    { "NINE",    0xb },
    { "ZERO",    0xc },
    { "TV/RADIO",    0xd },
    { "MENU",    0xe },
    { "P-",        0xf },
    { "P+",        0x10 },
    { "UP",        0x11 },
    { "LEFT",    0x12 },
    { "OK",        0x13 },
    { "RIGHT",    0x14 },
    { "DOWN",    0x15 },
    { "EXIT",    0x16 },
    { "MUTE",    0x18 },
    { "YELLOW",    0x1a },
    { "GUIDE",    0x1b },
    { "RED",    0x1c },
    { "GREEN",    0x1d },
    { "BLUE",    0x1e },
    { "VOL+",    0x1f },
    { "VOL-",    0x40 },
    { "BACK",    0x41 },
    { "OPT+",    0x42 },
    { "INFO",    0x43 },
    { "AUDIO",    0x45 },
    { "SUB",    0x46 },

    { "SKIP/FORW",    0x67 },
    { "ADDBOOKMARK",0x6a },

AF123 you are a star :)

Extract from reply from Logitech

Dear Graham,

Thank you for your speedy reply, your cooperation, and your patience.

I have checked with our Tier 2 support and they say we can convert these codes, to IR codes we can use with the Harmony remote.
To convert these codes I have to forward this case to our product specialists.
It can take 5-7 working days to complete.
I will contact you via email as soon as this has been done.

Let's hope they do it centrally, so that all of us with Harmony can use it, not just for Graham :)

I hadn't even realised there was an issue, as currently I'm only use two codes.

They will add it to the database. Logitech will do this also if a user submits a device codes for a gizmo not yet in the database. Whether they stick with the current arrangement of having to use command learning to find the correct mode or simply add an option to specify the Humax mode not sure. The latter will obviously be preferable but may be an issue for existing users.
