Multi component in one screen
Features
The RM-AV2500 Remote Commander
provides centralized control of all your
AV components from a single remote
commander and saves the trouble of
operating different AV components with
different remote control devices. The
following are its main features.
Centralized control of Sony AV
components with this one remote
commander
This Commander is preset at the factory
to operate Sony brand components, so
you can use it out of the box as a control
center for your Sony AV components.
Remote control signals for non-Sony
components are also preset
This Commander is preset for most major
brands components including Sony. You
can remote control your components by
setting their code numbers (page 8).
Learning function for programming
other remote control signals you
need
This Commander has a learning function,
to learn remote control signals to operate
non-preset components or functions
(page 15).
In addition, the Commander can learn
remote control signals (infrared signals
only) of non-Audio Visual components
such as air-conditioners, lights, etc. (some
specific appliances or functions may not
be available) (page 35).
When you operate a lot of equipment all
together, you need not change the screen.
When watching a DVD, the DVD run
system key, the Power key for TV and
Receiver or the input change key can be
displayed on one screen, and it can be
operated, without switching the screen.

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.
However, if your visual components are
connected to an audio system, you
probably hear TV or VCR sound from the
loudspeakers via your amplifier, not
from your TV speakers. In this case, you
need to change the factory preset so that
you can control the volume of your
visual components without first having
to switch to the amplifier.

Notes
• If you have already programmed the
VOLUME or MUTING button of each
component any signals 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 15).

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 Power on the TV.
2 Power on the video (VCR).
3 Power 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 (A – C).
If you have set the System Control
function for a Component Select button
(page 27), the execution of the
programmed commands begins when
you press the Component Select button
for more than 2 seconds.
While executing the programmed
commands, at the same time that each
remote control signal is transmitted, the
corresponding key is displayed.
Preset programs for the SYSTEM

Notes
About the order of operation steps
• 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 25) 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 has already
“learned” a remote control signal (page 35),
“NG” flashes and you cannot program on
this button. Clear the learned contents first
(page 36).
• If you change the component code number
(page 8) or program a new signal by learning
(page 15) 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.
• During Setting mode, 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 25) and start again from Step
1.
• 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;
Tips for programming the
System Control functions
The following information helps you to
program a consecutive operation steps.
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 of 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
when you start operating that component. (In
the example on page 24, the touch-keys of
VCR are displayed.)
To clear programmed commands
1 While pressing COMMANDER
OFF, press the MORE button.
The SYSTEM CONTROL keys (A – C)
and number keys (1 – 9) flash while
the preset buttons stay lit.
About the interval between
operation steps
You can change the interval between operation
steps (page 29).

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
the unit any further.
•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.
Maintenance
Clean the surface with a soft cloth sightly
moistened with water or a mild detergent
solution. Do not use any type of solvent
such as alcohol, benzine or thinner as
they may damage the finish of the
surface.

Troubleshooting
If you have problems setting up or using the Remote Commander, first check the
batteries (page 6), 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 compoent,
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. Check the component assigned to that button and the
component code.
• If you do not use the commander for a long time, LCD panel response
may become erratic. In this case, follow the procedure below:
1 While pressing COMMANDER OFF, press MENU and EXIT.
A bullet mark will appear in the bottom left of the LCD panel.
2 Press the next target that appears in the top right of the LCD panel.
3 Press the square that appears in the center of the LCD panel.
A beep sounds to confirm the setting.
55
Troubleshooting (continued)
56
Symptom
Remedy
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 15).
• The component may be operated with a code number that is not listed
in the “Component Code Numbers.” See “Finding a component code
with the Search function” (page 11) and try setting a code number
again.
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
21).
• You have assigned another component to the TV or AMP button (page
32). 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 19) and try the learning
procedure again (page 15).
Symptom
Remedy
You hear beeps (“pip,
pip”) and “NG” flashes.
• The Preset Lock function is on. Unlock the Preset Lock function (page
46), and try the component code setting or the learning function.
• Signals have been programmed for that Component Select or SYSTEM
CONTROL button using the learning function. Clear the learned signals
(page 25, 43) and try programming the System Control function again.
• Signal has been programmed for that key using the learning function.
Clear the signal(s) (pages 19 and 20) and try programming the function
or the display for the same key again, or try with another Component
Select button.
• Signals have been programmed for that macro key using the learning
function. Clear the learned signals (page 19) and try programming the
Channel Macro function for the same key again, or try with another
macro key.
• There are some keys, on which signals have been programmed, on the
display for the Component Select button of the Commander when the
commander receives the data from another Commander. Clear the
signals (pages 20, 21 and “Notes” on page 43) and try receiving the data
again.
You hear beeps (“pip,
pip, pip, pip, pip”) and
“NG” flashes.
• Learning has not succeeded. See “For accurate learning” (page 19) and
try the learning procedure again (page 15).
• The component codes cannot be set. See the supplied “Component
Code Numbers” and try setting the component codes again (page 8).
• The data have not been transferred. See “Transferring data” (page 37)
and try transferring the data again.
• The data have not been received. See “Receiving the data” (page 40) and
try receiving the data again.
“NG” appears during
learning.
• Clear infrequently used learned keys (page 19), then carry out learning
operations.

57
Troubleshooting (continued)
Symptom
Remedy
A system control
program does not
function correctly.
• Make sure that you have programmed the commands in the correct
order (page 22).
• 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 27).
• 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 29) and set a longer interval.
The power of the
