The Marantz
RC5400
The RC5400 is designed to control most devices that understand
infrared (IR) remote control signals. Its easy-to-use Touch Screen and
its intuitive interface make it a perfect remote control for every user.
The RC5400 is completely customizable and programmable. You can
add devices and functions, re-label buttons, record macros and animate
your macros. Although the RC5400 is pre-programmed for Marantz
components, a vast collection of built-in tab guided panels with prearranged button art enables you to easily choose the perfect interface
for any non-Marantz component. The RC5400 easily “learns”
commands from the vast majority of manufacturers’ remote controls.

Operating a Device
You can operate the devices using two kinds of buttons;
Soft buttons - Virtual buttons on the Touch Screen.
Hard buttons - Seven buttons below the screen (HOME, Left
and Right Function buttons are not included) and five to the right
of the screen (Vol +/-, Ch Up/Down & Mute)
Using the Soft Buttons
By tapping the Soft buttons on the Touch Screen you send
Infrared (IR) commands to the device you have selected.
The name of the device you are controlling is always displayed on
the DEVICE OVERVIEW button.
Sending commands
IR commands are invisible. However, when you send a command,
an animated icon appears in the INFO button at the UPPER TOOL
BAR to show that a command is being sent.
Using the Hard Buttons
Hard buttons can be operated at any time, even without turning on
the Touch Screen. They can change their function depending on
which device is active (teach commands to the specific device).
For example:
Since VOLUME Up, VOLUME Down and MUTE are typically
receiver/preamp commands in most home theaters, these direct access
buttons have been pre-programmed to always operate a Marantz
receiver/preamp as the default. Should you own another brand, see the
programming instructions on page 28-29.
MENU, ENTER, EXIT, 4-Way Cursor Navigation, CHANNEL Up and
CHANNEL Down are typically programmed to change with the device
selected. So when you are operating your DVD player, you use them to
navigate DVD menus and change chapters. While you are watching
TV, the MENU buttons operate the TV menus and the CHANNEL
buttons change channels.

Customizing your RC5400
1.
Introduction
It is best to proceed with customizing in several stages.
The first stage is to teach all of your existing remote codes to the
RC5400. The second stage is to practice using your home theater
system with the RC5400. As you gain familiarity with your system,
you’ll notice that many operations in a home theater require several
steps. In the third stage of customization, you will record multiple
step operations as either a “Macro” that you can play back with one
button push or as a list of numbered steps recorded in a “Help List”
device group.
In the next few pages you’ll find step by step guidelines on each of
the three stages. When a more detailed explanation can be found
in the Reference section, we’ve noted the page.
2.
Cloning All Your Existing Remotes
1 Gather all of your remote controls in front of you.
2 Play with all of the example devices. Compare the devices with
your existing remote controls. Can you use any as templates for
non-Marantz components?
3 Use DELETE mode to delete all of the devices that you don’t
use (see page 37).
4 Use ADD mode to add the devices for each Marantz
component (see page 35-36).
When you are prompted to add with or without RC codes,
choose Create with RC codes .
5 Use ADD mode to add a devices for each non-Marantz
component (see page 36). Choose Create without RC
codes .
User Guide
6 Switch to LEARN Mode to evaluate the page layouts of the new
devices.
16
Customizing your RC5400
7 Switch back to DELETE mode and delete the device if it is not a
good match to your component. Repeat steps 4 through 7 until
all of your remote controls have matching devices.
8 Switch to LABEL mode to relabel each device
(see page 30-32).
9 Switch to MOVE mode to re-order your devices, so that your
Device Overview page is arranged the way you want (see page
39).
10 Switch to LABEL mode to relabel any buttons as needed to
match your existing remote controls. Check all of your devices.
12 Switch to LEARN mode and teach the RC5400 all of your nonMarantz components’ RC Codes (see page 26-30).
13 Switching back and forth between USE and LEARN modes, test
all codes and reteach as necessary.
Note
Be very careful to NEVER delete the jump tabs; they can only
be restored with a Editor software using PC. (see page 46-47).
14 Switch back to LEARN mode. Teach each Device the
appropriate Preamp/Receiver Input (source switching) IR
command (see page 28) as the Device Action.
Congratulations!
You have completed the first stage of customization. Take a well
deserved break.

Complex Operation? Macro or Help...
If your entire system is new to you, practice using the RC5400
manually for a few days before programming any macros. You’ll find
that your home theater requires many operations that require multiple
steps to do. You have to decide whether to use a:
Macro - The entire operation happens in an automated sequence
when you touch one button.
Help List - The operation happens manually but is prompted by large
sequentially numbered buttons with friendly labels on one sequence of
pages linked together.
Some multiple step operations require you to make decisions before
you proceed. An example is turning on a non-Marantz home theater
system. Many components turn on and off with a single “Power”
button. Before you press a “Power” button, the manufacturer expects
you to look at the component to see whether it is on or off. If you want
it on and it’s off, you press the “Power” button. If you forget to look,
and it is already on, you will turn it off when you press the “Power”
button. The Remote cannot “look” at your components to see if they
are on or off. So, if you recorded a macro intended to power up a nonMarantz home theater, it wouldn’t be very reliable.
Here’s an example:
Your spouse goes out to the local video store and rents a video tape.
When he/she gets home, they pop the tape in the VCR (most VCR’s
automatically turn on when a tape is inserted). Your spouse touches the
macro button you programmed to power up the system. The recorded
sequence of “power” buttons is played back. Unfortunately, since the VCR
was already on, it is now off and everything else is on. Your spouse sees
no picture, assumes the macro didn’t work, so he/she touches the button
again. This time, the macro turns the VCR on and every thing else off.
Frustrating!
User Guide
Marantz builds components that are “macro-friendly”. Instead of a
single “power” button, the remote controls have a discrete “On” and a
discrete “Off” button. With a Marantz system, you can record a Macro
that is very reliable from a series of “On” commands. Take a look at
the example ALL ON and ALL OFF macros preprogrammed in the
default configuration.
18
Customizing Your RC5400
The problems don’t stop with powering up a system. Often, you will
want to construct a macro to watch or listen to a specific source. This
may require that both the Television and the Surround Receiver be set
to new inputs. Some components have “discrete” commands to select
sources (meaning the command will only have one effect on the
components, like the CD input on most receivers). Other components
have “toggle” commands (these are commands that require you to
look at the component, evaluate its state and sometimes issue the
command over and over again). An example of a “toggle” command is
the Input or TV/VCR button found on many television remote controls.
You have to look at the TV, decide that it is on the wrong input, then
toggle or scroll through the inputs to select the one you want.
Evaluate each of the multiple step operations you would like to record
as macros. If all of the commands in the process are “discrete,” the
macro will work reliably. If even one command is a “toggle” command,
you should program a help list for the operation instead of a macro.
Tip
Sometimes there is a reliable way to use toggle type commands in macros.
Unfortunately, it will not be written down in your component’s instruction
manual. You will have to find it through experimentation and imagination.
What you are looking for is an “anchor” command that will put your component
in a known state. Once it is in a known state, you can use toggle commands
in your macro.
An example for Powering Up DVD Players:
Most DVD players will turn on when off when they receive a Play command.
Thus a discrete On command is two steps,
1) DVD Play
2) DVD Stop
A discrete off command is constructed by:
1) DVD Play
2) DVD Power
An example for Selecting Source on a TV:
Many televisions will return to a particular input with either a channel up or
down command or by selecting a particular channel.
Thus, to construct a macro that selects the EXT1 input:
1) Channel Up (selects the Antenna A input)
2) Input (toggles to the Antenna B input)
3) Input (toggles to the EXT 1 input)

Macro/Page Jump Capability
Macros allow you to send a sequence of commands, jumps, delays
and beeps with up to 250 steps using one single touch.
Basically, you can assign any button as a macro button. However,
it is recommended that you use the macro buttons in the reserved
macro device since they are conveniently labeled with popular
Macro titles. However any button can be reprogrammed to be a
Macro.
In order to plan your macros, you should understand the
capabilities as follows,
Any Button Perform Macros/Jumps
You can program a macro to be played back when a button is
selected by pressing a button on a device page or Home page
(see page 41).
You can program a macro to be played back when a device is
selected by selecting the device via the Device Overview page
(see page 42).
Macros Perform Jumps to Any Device
The RC5400 has the unique capability of jumping to any device
panel during a macro.
You can make any or all of the 250 steps a jump to any
devices. This provides you with the opportunity to give some
feedback to the end user while a macro is being played back.
For example: you can reveal the CD device panel to show the user
that commands are being sent to the CD player, then jump to an
A/V Amp panel to show the user that commands are being sent to
the amp. (see page 41-42)
You can Add/Create a Status device (located in new devices in
the division named OTHER) and custom label each panel to
give the end user more specific feedback as to what the macro
is doing. You can then program jumps to each Status panel to
occur during the macro. (see page 33-34)
User Guide
21
Customizing Your RC5400
You cannot jump to any Home page, Device Overview and
Page Overview page. You are only allowed to jump to first page
of each devices when programming with the RC5400 stand
alone.
Macros Send Commands To Your System
You can make any or all of the 250 steps send a remote control
command to your system. The step is actually just a recording
of the location of any button on any device page. To record an
RC command, you simply navigate to the panel and button you
want, then touch it. Thus, all RC commands in a Macro must
first be taught to a button location first
(see page
40-42).
You can record a “Device Action” which is what the device
button on the Device Overview page really does (see page 42).
Macros Can Contain Delay and Beep Between Steps
You can program a Delay/Beep as any or all of the 250 steps of
a macro (see page 41).
You can adjust that delay in 1/10th of a second intervals
between 0.1 and 10.0 seconds (see page 41).

Programming Macros & Page Jumps
You will do all of your Macro/Jump programming within a screen
that will appear after you press the Macro button on the Mode
menupage. Before proceeding with programming, make sure that
you understand how to move around in the MACRO mode and how
to read the RC5400’s shorthand notation for each macro step (see
page 40).
1 Write a list of all of the actions in the operation you want to
record.
2 Play with all of the example Macro buttons in MACRO device.
Are any of these examples adaptable to your purposes?
3 Use DELETE mode to delete all of the macro devices that you
don’t like (see page 38).
4 Use ADD mode to add a new macro device empty of any
programming from the device list (see page 35-36).
5 Switch to LABEL mode to re-label your macro devices.
(see page 32).
6 Switch to MOVE mode to re-order your macro devices, so that
the most commonly used Macro devices are near the top (see
page 39).
7 Switch to LABEL mode and navigate to the your new macro
device. Relabel the macro buttons with an appropriate name.

page 41).
Note
Use the Page + / - buttons, Device Overview or Page Overview
to navigate pages; the Tab buttons will work as a Jump. If you
accidentally record a Tab button as a macro step, it is better to
delete it.

Customizing Your RC5400
12 Typically you will need to adjust the timing of the macro. Simply
putting in lots of delays will make the macro work, but may
make the macro unnecessarily long.
Try moving commands, so that a TV command alternates with
another component command before another TV command is
issued. To move a command, simply select it and use the
and
buttons to reposition it within the Macro page.
When a delay is added to the macro, the default timing is 0.5
seconds. If the macro works with a 0.5 second delay, try a
smaller delay to shorten the macro.
When programming Channel number macros, use 0.1 second
delays between different digits and 0.5 second delays between
identical digits.
13 Once you are happy with the macro, press the Done button on
the screen to save it.
14 Continue to program macros until you have recorded all that you
plan.

Learning IR command
You program the RC (Remote Control)
commands by transmitting
IR (infrared) signals from your
existing remote controls to the
RC5400’s learning eye.
To do this, place the RC5400 and
the device’s remote control on a flat
surface, 1 to 10cm (0.5 to 3.6 inches)
apart. With each new remote control,
you have to find the correct learning distance.
1 to 10 cm apart
(0.5 to 3.6 inches)
It is best to be systematic and teach all of
the buttons from one remote control before
proceeding to the next. Start with the remotes
close together; if you receive a Failed message,
move them farther apart in one inch increments.
Although rare, some component remotes require
a very large distance between the sending LED and
the RC5400’s learning eye.
Test the first command from any new remote control to find the
correct learning distance.
Once you have found the correct learning distance, do not
change it for any other button on that particular remote control.
Most commands learn correctly when you press and hold them
until the OK indicator appears. However, sometimes the
RC5400 will say OK , yet the command will not operate the
component properly. If this occurs, try re-teaching the command
with a brief tap. After a short delay the OK indicator will
appear. Test the code. If this improves operation, continue to
use the tap technique for all other buttons on the remote. The
only buttons that you MUST use the press and hold technique
for are buttons that you will press and hold when you are
operating the component (i.e. Volume Up/Down, Scan, etc.).
The following buttons can be programmed: Soft buttons
(operation page buttons, device buttons) and Hard buttons.

Hard buttons can be programmed for a device specific command
for a particular device on the remote (Programming locally).
Only via PC, hard buttons can be programmed with a grobal
function for all devices.
When a command is taught to a hard button from a device page,
it will only be issued when that device is active, even if a command
has been programmed globally. Local learning overrides global
programming.
For example: One could program the CH+ & CH- buttons as the
Chapter +/- command when the DVD is active. Now, if you program
the TV channel +/- globally (and any device other than the DVD is
selected) the TV channel +/- commands will be issued.

All of the devices shown are Marantz model s # with the exception
of the first division, called “Other.” Below the “Other” division are
three device templates that are meant for other purposes.
STATUS - This template is used to provide status screens you can
jump to during a macro. Five pages are created with the device
name “Status.” If you add additional Status devices, they will be
named Status2, Status3, Status4 and so on. Each page is named
according to its numbered position (1/5, etc.), so that if you are

name is listed, the macro
step will be a Device
Action (the action that
occurs when the Device

typically the
receiver/preamp s source
selection or input
command).
AMP - ON - When a
device name and a
button name are listed,
that particular button s
IR command will be
issued.
GO: DVD Main
- A Go command
indicates a panel jump.
In this case, “TV” means
a jump to the TV device
and Main is the name
for the particular panel
(sometimes panels just
have numbers, not
names).

Using the RC5400 with Radio Frequency
Warning To use the Remote Control with Radio Frequency (RF) you need
an Marantz RX-77 RF Extender.
This is an optional accessory for the RC5400.
By default, the RC5400 uses
infrared (IR) signals to operate devices.
This means that you have to point the
RC5400 s IR sending eye towards
the devices you re operating. IR signals
have an operating distance of approximately
10 meters (33 feet).

signals instead of IR signals. RF signals can, unlike IR signals, go
through obstacles like furniture or walls.
The RF signals sent out by the
RC5400 are picked up by the RX-77
RF Extender. The RX-77 translates
the RF signals in IR signals and
RF signal
sends the IR signals to the
appropriate devices. Therefore, the
IR signal
RX-77 has to be placed near the
devices you re operating with the
RX-77
RX-77 s sending eye pointed to the device.
Your devices will always receive IR signals either directly from the
RC5400 or from the RX-77.
Changing the IR / RF Settings
All devices are set up by default to work with IR signals. To be able
to operate one or more devices with RF signals, you have to
change the RC5400 s IR/RF settings for those devices.
1 Tap and hold the MODE
icon in the LOWER TOOL BAR
more than 3 seconds. Mode Menu page will appear.
2 Tap the IR / RF button to switch to IR/RF Setting mode.
The RC5400 displays the device list box.

Choosing Another Channel
When you notice RF interference or unreliable operation you should
try choosing another channel to operate your devices.
Note
All devices you want to operate with RF signals use the same
channel. If you choose another channel for one device, the Remote
Control will automatically change the channel for all devices that
work with RF signals.
