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 20). 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 30).
Notes
• If you have programmed any signal for the
VOLUME or MUTING button for any
component using the learning function (page
20), 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.

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
76) when it is not used. Components
such as air conditioners, heaters,

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 do not 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

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 21).
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
CONTROL buttons (1 - 3) or the Label keys
(SYSTEM 4 - 15).
If you have set the System Control function
for a Component Select button or a Label
key (page 39), the execution of the
programmed commands begins when you
press the Component Select button for more
than 2 seconds.
The component macro executing time is
variable by changing the setting (page 43).
While executing the programmed
commands, at the same time that each

The names of buttons on the Commander
which are not on the LCD touch key
display (VOLUME +/–, MUTING,
CHANNEL +/–, RECALL, MENU, OK,
EXIT, , , , and ) are displayed on
the right Label key.
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 36) 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 50), “NG” flashes and you cannot
program on this button. Clear the learned
contents first (page 52).
• If you change the component code number
(page 12) or program a new signal by learning
(page 20) 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 36) 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 44), 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
• 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 34. 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 33), 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 name of the
Label key,” Steps 2 - 5 on page 25.
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

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.
Programming a series of
commands for the Component
Select buttons or the Label keys

Label key for which a System Control
function has been programmed, but the
Power-On function cannot be used. If you
clear the System Control function from the
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
(page 12) or program a new signal by

(continued)
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
46) or a System Control function (page 39) 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
46) or a System Control function (page 39) 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 47) or
the System Control function (page 32) 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.

Additional Information
Precautions
•Do not drop the unit or give a shock to
the unit, or it may cause a malfunction.
•Do not leave the unit in a location hear
heat sources, or in a place subject to
direct sunlight, excessive dust or sand,
moisture, rain or mechanical shock.
•Do not put foreign objects into the unit.
Should any liquid or solid object fall
into the unit, have it checked by
qualified personnel before operating

•Do not expose the remote control
detectors of your components to direct
sunlight or other strong illumination.
Too much light there can interfere with
remote control operations.
•Be sure to place the Commander out of
the reach of small children or pets.
Components such as air conditioners,
heaters, electric appliances, and electric
shutters or curtains receiving an
infrared signal can be dangerous if
misused.

Troubleshooting
If you have problems setting up or using the Remote Commander, first check the
batteries (page 7), then check the items below.
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 did not come with a remote commander, it probably
is not 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 24, 25).
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 does not 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 20).
You cannot control the
volume.
• If your visual components are connected to an audio system, make sure
you have set up the Commander as described in “Controlling the
Volume of Visual Components Connected to an Audio System” (page
30).
• You have assigned another component to the TV or AMP button (page
44, 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 26) and try the learning
procedure again (page 20).
Continued
91
Troubleshooting (continued)
Symptom
Remedy
“NG” flashes five times. • Leaning has not succeeded. After checking the follows, try learning
procedure again (page 20).
- Change the distance between remote commanders.
- See “For accurate learning” (page 26).
• 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 56)
and try transferring the data again.
• The data has not been received. See “Receiving the data” (page 59) 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 Key Macro function.
Clear the learned signals (page 36, 64) and try setting again.
• Learned signals or the Key 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 48). Clear the contents (page 26, 64)
and try the copying procedure again.
• The key for which you want to program the Key Macro function is not a
Key Macro key. You can program the Key Macro function only for the
Label keys.
• You may try to clear the learned signals in the Key Macro setting mode
(page 64). In this mode, only Key Macro settings can be cleared by
pressing the macro key while keeping the DEL key pressed. To clear the
learned signals, see page 48.
• Learned signals have been programmed for the Label key to which you
want to set the Key Macro function. Clear the learned signals (page 26)
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 59). Or see “Changing or erasing
the function of a taught key or button” (page 26), 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 69), and edit the program contents.
• You may try to program the Power-On function (page 44) 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 20). You cannot operate the preset function after
operationg the learning function. Preset after clearing the learned
signals (page 26), or preset to another Component Select button or Label
key that is not used.
“NG” appears during
learning.
• The memory is full. Clear infrequently used learned keys (page 26), then
carry out learning operations.

A system control
program does not
function correctly.
• Make sure that you have programmed the commands in the correct
order (page 32).
• 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 39).
• 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 41) 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

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.)
