Someone in the other forum asked if the ir code on the recorder2 is compatible with any existing codes in the back of the DishNetwork manual. It would DEFINITELY improve usability, by letting the dish receiver turn the R2 on and off for recording.

Please, can you respond to this, it wouldn't cost you guys anything.

Maybe these two items can help you out:

I think the R2 remote is a custom remote, uses a NEC protocol, 38 Khz Ir, custom code 866b. The remote decoder is made by Jaecs of Taiwan.  I could not find any additional info on their site.

I have posted a question about it here:

http://www.hifi-remote.com/forums/viewforum.php?f=20

and the button codes  of the R2 remote codes here:

Try the Universal Cable box remote code 0770
These brands should work:

Apache
Viewmaster VM3800

or try CBL code 1329 might work as well.

If not, you can buy a JP1 enabled remote called ONE for ALL (universal) and program the CBL button to be 0770 or 1329.
This will control your Neuros Recorder.

Good luck

OK, your info is good, but what I want is for the SATELLITE RECEIVER IR BLAST to turn on the R2 to record like it does for my vcr. Does that make sense? I figgered that maybe one of the vcr or tv codes built into the satellite receiver.

For sure it makes complete sense what you are trying to do.

You are trying to get your Satellite box to get the R2 to start recording by programming  your Satellite IR Blaster
with an Ir code that the Neuros remote uses.

But what you are trying, and what maybe available, are two different things.

Hello, this is my 1st post on this forum, hope I won't break any rule.
I'm also interested in MPEG-4 Recorder IR codes, 'cause I'm trying to control it via an "homebrew" IR-PIC device. I see that unfortunately the image posted by Ex-Navy with them is not available anymore. Please, could you post them back again? Or does anyone else have them?
Thanks in advance for your help,
Andrea

Here it is:

NEC code, custom code 866B



The protocol here:



Pat Cooper scoped the codes sequence:

Record sequence:



Power ON- OFF sequence:



Steve from xavien.com is making a IR button pcb for use with the R2 if you're interested.

WOW, I wasn't expecting such a thorough reply  Cheesy
Thanks a lot!
Forgive my late reply, but I just came back to office after two weeks holidays.
I will try playing a while with this (you know, learning something is always more interesting than buying a ready-made solution), but if I won't be successful, then I'll search for Steve's IR button pcb.
Greetings,

Hey Andrea,

What PIC are you planning on using??

I am playing with the 18F1320 to do this.

Hi!
I've got a bunch of 16F877 and 18F4525 at home, so I will start playing with them.
By the way we're talking about PICs, I've seen some code sample online and all of them, even those written in PBP, used assembly language for the emitting/receiving routines. I have to say that actually all those samples were implemented on PICs running at 4 Mhz, so according to PBP manual the minimum possible delay with "PAUSEUS" command would be 24 us, while we need a minimum delay of 9 us (theoretically it should be 8.77 us, as stated into IR receivers datasheets) for generating the 38 Khz carrier. But running PICs at 20 Mhz makes possible a minimum delay of 3 us with PAUSEUS command. Do you think it is possible for this application avoiding assembly language, or...I'd better learn about it?
Thanks,
Andrea

I think by using the PIC and a 20mhz crystal is ideal.

Using assembly is in my opinion the best because when one uses Swordfish, C, Pbasic, timing cannot be accomplished as good as old assembly.

You can actually count the codes so the instruction cycles can be estimated.

Here is a good forum to see about this:

http://www.electro-tech-online.com/micro-controllers/

Search it for Sony, NEC, or RC5 to see sample code

Another good tutorial is here: Nigel Goodwins
