Note
The remote control signals may be different for
some components or functions. In this case,
program the remote control signals with the
learning function (see page 19). Note, however,
that components and functions that do not
support the remote control of infrared signals
will not work with this Commander.
To control the volume
Press the VOLUME +/– buttons to
control the volume, and the MUTING
button to mute. When you select a visual
component, the TV’s volume will be
controlled, and when you select an audio
component, the amplifier’s volume will
be controlled. You can change this setting
also (page 29).
Notes
• If you have programmed any signal for the
VOLUME or MUTING button for any
component using the learning function (page
19), that signal will be transmitted instead of
controlling the volume of the TV or amplifier
once you select that component.
• If you have programmed any signal for the
VOLUME +/– buttons or the MUTING
button of TV or AMP using the learning
function, that signal will be also transmitted
when you select another component.
However, if you have programmed any
signal for the VOLUME +/– buttons or the
MUTING button of another component, that
signal will be transmitted only after you
select that component.
• If you have assigned another component to
the TV or AMP button, the volume of the TV
or amplifier cannot be controlled even when
you select other components.

For accurate learning
•Do not move the remote units during
the learning procedure.
•Be sure to keep holding down the
button of the other remote control until
you hear the confirmation beep.
•Use fresh batteries in both remote
control units.
•Avoid learning in places under direct
sunlight or strong fluorescent light.
•The remote control detector area may
differ depending on each remote unit. If
learning does not work, try changing
the positions of the two remote control
units.
•When you teach signals of an
interactive signal exchange system
remote control unit (supplied with
some of Sony’s receivers and
amplifiers) to the Commander, the
response signal of the main unit may
interfere with the learning of the
Commander. In such a case, move to a
place where the signals will not reach
the main unit (e.g. other rooms, etc.).
IMPORTANT
Be sure to place the Commander out
of the reach of small children or pets.
Also set the Hold function to lock the
all buttons on the Commander (page
71) when it is not used. Components
such as air conditioners, heaters,
electric appliances, and electric
shutters or curtains receiving an
infrared signal can be dangerous if
misused.

Advanced Features
Controlling the Volume
of Visual Components
Connected to an Audio
System
The Commander is factory preset based
on the assumption that you hear the
sound of your visual components from
your TV speakers, and that you hear
sound of your audio components from
the loudspeakers connected to your
amplifier.
This feature enables you to control the
volume of your TV or amplifier without
having to select TV or AMP each time
you want to control the volume.
For example, to control the volume while
using a VCR, you don’t need to press the
TV button to control the TV volume.
You can switch the volume of all the
visual components to the amplifier at the
same time.
The following table shows the factory
setting of which volume would be
controlled for each component.

Notes
• If you have already programmed any signal
for the VOLUME or MUTING button of each
component by “learning”, the procedure
above will not change the function of the
VOLUME and MUTING buttons.
• If you have programmed volume control
signals on VOLUME or MUTING buttons of
TV or AMP, you can only use that signal
when you select TV or AMP. For other
component, the preset volume control signals
for TV or AMP (depending on the above
setting procedure) will be transmitted. To use
the new signals, you need to program each
button for each component by the learning
procedure (page 20).
Executing a Series of
Commands
— System Control Functions
With the System Control function, you
can program a series of operating
commands, and execute them by
pressing just one button.
For example, when you watch a video, a
series of operations like the ones below
are necessary.
Example:
1 Turn on the TV.
2 Turn on the video (VCR).
3 Turn on the amplifier.
4 Set the input selector of the amplifier
to VIDEO 1.
5 Set the input mode of the TV to VIDEO 1.
6 Start video playback
You can program up to 32 consecutive
operation steps to each of the SYSTEM

Executing a Series of Commands
— System Control Functions
(continued)
Notes
• If you interrupt the procedure at any point
for over two minutes, the setting mode ends
and the series of commands will be
programmed to that point. In this case, clear
the program (page 35) and start again from
Step 1 to set the entire program from the
beginning. You cannot continue from where
you let off.
• If a SYSTEM CONTROL button or a Label
key has already “learned” a remote control
signal (page 49), “NG” flashes and you
cannot program on this button. Clear the
learned contents first (page 51).
•If you change the component code number
(page 12) or program a new signal by
learning (page 19) on a key or button that has
been programmed in the series of commands
of the System Control function, the new
signal will be transmitted when you press the
corresponding SYSTEM CONTROL button or
a Label key.
• During programming of a series of operating
commands, the DEL key is not displayed and
you cannot clear any operation step you have
programmed. If you have programmed an
incorrect operation by mistake, start again
from Step 1.
• If you try to program more than 32 steps, the
System Control setting finishes, and the 32 steps
you have programmed are registered. If you
want to program again, clear the program (page
35) and start again from Step 1.
• When programming a power-on command
for the System Control function, if you select
the Component Select button or the Label key
for which you programmed the Power-on
setting (page 43), the Power-on setting is also
available. So, the power of the selected
component turns off if the POWER key of the
component is programmed.
In this case, clear the Power-on setting, or do
not program the POWER key of the
component.
About the interval between
operation steps
34
• You can change the interval between
operation steps (page 40).
• If you cannot receive signals successfully
during consecutive operation steps, program
the interval between steps by pressing the
TIMER button between operation steps in Step
6 on page 33. This operation of programming an
interval is counted also as a step.
To change the display of the
component name on the Mode
Display key
When you program a series of operating
commands, you can change the display
of the component name to the most
suitable name using up to 8 characters or
digits.
After Step 3 (page 32), hold the Mode
Display key pressed for more than 2
seconds. Then follow the same procedure
as that for changing the name of the
Label key in “To change the display of
the Label key”, Steps 2 - 5 on page 24.
If you press the CLEAR key, the Label
key returns to the previous display.
About the order of operation steps
• Some of the components may not accept
consecutive remote control signals. For
example, a TV generally does not react to
next signal right after the Power-on signal.
So, a series of commands such as TV Poweron and input select may not work properly.
In this case, insert other signals like the
example below;
TV Power-on t VCR Power-on
t VCR play back t TV input select
• After the series of input commands is
executed, the Commander displays the
touch-keys of the component in the final step.
By programming an often-used component’s
command as the final step, you can save the
step of pressing a Component Select button
or a Label key when you start operating that
component. (In the example on page 33, the
touch-keys of TV are displayed.)
• If a series of commands is programmed for
the Component Select button or the Label
keys (page 38), the display of that component
is shown after the program is executed.

Notes on System Control
Operations
•If the remote control detectors of the
components are too far apart, or if
something is blocking them, some of
the components may not operate
consecutively even after you press the
SYSTEM CONTROL button or a Label
key.
•If some of the components did not
operate correctly because of the above
or for any other reason, always set all
the components back to the states they
were in before you pressed the SYSTEM
CONTROL button or a Label key.
Failure to do this can result in incorrect
operation when you press the SYSTEM
CONTROL button or a Label key again.
•Some components may not always be
powered on by the System Control
function. This is because the power of
the component goes on and off
alternatively when receiving the power
on/off signal. In this case, check the
operating component’s power on/off
state before using the system control
function.

button, you can use the Power-On function.
• If you interrupt the procedure at any point
for over two minutes, the setting mode ends
and the series of commands will be
programmed to that point. In this case, clear
the program and start again from Step 1 to
set the entire program from the beginning.
You cannot continue from where you let off.
•If you change the component code number

Notes
• If the component code of a non-Sony product
has been set for a Component Select button
or a Label key, you cannot program the
Power-On function for it.
• Even if you have programmed a signal by
“learning” (See “Adding a command that is
required when selecting a component”, page
45) or a System Control function (page 38) for
a Component Select button or a Label key,
you can program the Power-On function for
that button, but it cannot be used. If you clear
a “learned” signal or the System Control
function from the button or key, you can use
the Power-On function.
• You can program a signal by “learning” (page
45) or a System Control function (page 38) for
a Component Select button for which the
Power-On function has been programmed. In
this case, the Power-On function is
overwritten and cannot be used. If you clear
the “learned” signal or the System Control
function from the button or key, the PowerOn function is resumed, and you can use it
again.
• You can set the learning function (page 46) or
the System Control function (page 31) to the
Component Select button or the Label key for
which you programmed the Power-on signal.
In this case, the Power-on setting is also
available and the Power-on signal is output.
So check the setting of Power-on signal
before setting the learning function or the
System Control function.
Adding a command that is
required when selecting a
component
In addition to the original function of
selecting the operating keys and buttons
of the desired component, the
Component Select button or the Label
key can have another remote control
signal by “learning.”
For example, if you always have to
change input select of the amplifier to CD
when listening to the CD player, program
the signal of “changing the amplifier’s
input select” to the CD button of this
Commander. Then whenever you press
the CD button, it automatically works as
the original CD Component Select button
and changes also the amplifier input
select to CD. (In this case, the amplifier
should be turned on first.)

Some specific remote control signals may not
be learned.

buttons without any preceding operation
such as pressing a Component Select
button to select a component.
This is useful if you prefer having the

Troubleshooting
If you have problems setting up or using the Remote Commander, first check the
batteries (page 7), then check the items below.
84
Symptom
Remedy
You cannot operate the
components.
• Go closer to the component. The maximum operating distance is
approximately 32.8 ft. (10 m).
• Check that you are aiming the Commander directly at the component,
and that there are no obstructions between the Commander and the
component.
• Turn on the components first, if necessary.
• Check that the component has infrared remote capability. For example,
if your component didn’t come with a remote commander, it probably
isn’t capable of being controlled by a remote commander.
• You have assigned a different component to the Component Select
button or Label key. A corresponding component is fixed by presetting
a component code number. Therefore, the name of component you have
preset may be different from that of the Component Select button or the
Label key. In this case, it is recommended to preset again (page 12) and
change the component name on the Mode Display key or the name of
the Label key (page 23, 24).
You cannot operate the
components even after
setting the component
code numbers.
• Set the component code correctly. If the code that is listed first for your
component doesn’t work, try all the codes for your component in the
order in which they are listed in the supplied “Component Code
Numbers”.
• Some features may not be preset. If some or all of the keys do not
function correctly even after you have set the component codes, then
use the learning function to program the remote control signals for the
component (page 19).
You cannot control the
volume.
• If your visual components are connected to an audio system, make sure
you’ve set up the Commander as described in “Controlling the Volume
of Visual Components Connected to an Audio System” (page 29).
• You have assigned another component to the TV or AMP button (page
45, 46). In this case, the volume cannot be controlled when you select a
component other than TV or AMP.
The Commander fails to
learn the remote control
signals.
• When you teach signals of an interactive signal exchange system remote
control unit (supplied with some of Sony’s receivers and amplifiers) to
the Commander, the response signal of the main unit may interfere with
the learning of the Commander. In such a case, move to a place where
the signals will not reach the main unit (e.g. other rooms, etc.).
You cannot operate a
component even after
you programmed the
remote control signals
with the “learning”
function.
• Make sure that the Remote Commander has learned the correct signals.
If not, see “For accurate learning” (page 25) and try the learning
procedure again (page 19).
Symptom
Remedy
“NG” flashes five times. • Leaning has not succeeded. After checking the follows, try learning
procedure again (page 19).
- Change the distance between remote commanders.
- See “For accurate learning” (page 25).
• The component codes cannot be set. See the supplied “Component
Code Numbers” and try setting the component codes again (page 12).
• The data have not been transferred. See “Transferring data” (page 52)
and try transferring the data again.
• The data has not been received. See “Receiving the data” (page 56) and
try receiving the data again.
“NG” flashes twice.
• Learned signals have been programmed for the button or key to which you
want to set the learning, System Control or Channel Macro function. Clear
the learned signals (page 35, 60) and try setting again.
• Learned signals or the Channel Macro function have been programmed for
the Component Select button or the Label key to which you want to copy
the settings of another Component Select button or the Label key using the
copying function (page 47). Clear the contents (page 25, 60) and try the
copying procedure again.
• The key for which you want to program the Channel Macro function is not
a Channel Macro key. You can program the Channel Macro function only
for the Label keys.
• You may try to clear the learned signals in the Channel Macro setting mode
(page 60). In this mode, only Channel Macro settings can be cleared by
pressing the macro key while keeping the DEL key pressed. To clear the
learned signals, see page 46.
• Learned signals have been programmed for the Label key to which you
want to set the Channel Macro function. Clear the learned signals (page 25)
and try setting again. Or set to another Label key.
• There are some keys, for which learned signals have been programmed, on
the display for the Component Select button or the Label key when the
Commander receives the data from another Commander. Clear the learned
signals using the CLEAR key and the RETURN key on the display of the
receiving mode (page 56). Or see “Changing or erasing the function of a
taught key or button” (page 25), and clear the learned signals.
• The program contents you want to change are set to be executed by the
timer. Set the timer setting in which that program is included not to be
executed (page 65), and edit the program contents.
• You may try to program the Power-On function (page 43) for a Component
Select button or the Label key to which the component code of a non-Sony
product has been set. This function is only for Sony components.
• You may try to operate the preset function (page 12) after operating the
learning function (page 19). You cannot operate the preset function after
operationg the learning function. Preset after clearing the learned signals
(page 25), or preset to another Component Select button or Label key that is
not used.

A system control
program does not
function correctly.
• Make sure that you have programmed the commands in the correct
order (page 31).
• Try changing the orientation of the Commander. If that does not help,
try placing the components as close to each other as possible.
• Check the status of the components and make sure that you have set the
components properly to receive commands (page 37).
• The component codes are changed or a new signals have been learned
for a key or button that has been programmed with a series of
commands. In this case, the new signals are transmitted when the series
of commands is executed.
• The interval may be too short. See “Changing the interval between
operation steps” (page 40) and set a longer interval, or adjust the series
of commands by changing the order of buttons and keys. (When
programming the system control function, you can make an interval of
a while by pressing the TIMER button.)
Your Commander does
not work as expected
after data transfer.
• Data transfer to/from a single Component Select button or Label key

- Check the location of the Commander.
• The status of each component is not suitable for operation. (For
example, you program the power-on setting, assuming that power of
the component is off when the timer turns on. However, if power of the
component is on when the component receives the timer signal from the
Commander, the component will turn off.)
