Control up to 8 components
Features
The RM-AX1400 Remote Commander
provides centralized control of all your
AV components from a single remote
control and saves the trouble of operating
different AV components with different
remote control devices. The following are
its main features.
The supplied software “AX1400
Remote Editor” for easy Remote
Commander setup
By installing the “AX1400 Remote
Editor” on the supplied CD-ROM onto
your PC, you can customize the setting of
the Remote Commander according to
your preferences.
You can also program various advanced
settings easily. (The main settings of the
Remote Commander can only be
programmed using “AX1400 Remote
Editor.”)
The settings programmed on your PC
can be transferred to the Remote
Commander as necessary using the
supplied Dedicated USB cable.
XPRESS function for executing a
series of actions to operate several
AV components by pressing just one
button
Groups of commands from different
components can be set for up to 8
XPRESS functions. For example, when
you watch a DVD using a TV and an
amplifier/receiver, you can press just one
button to turn on/off each component, and
select the correct inputs. Other buttons
operate source components (the
components which output picture or
sound).
Also, the XPRESS function can memorize
the status of power on/off, input select
status of each component, and send a
signal to synchronize them to the Remote
Commander, regardless of their current
status.
Bright and clear organic EL display
and button illumination
4
Embedded organic EL
(electroluminescence) display and button
illumination allow you to operate easily
in the dark.
With the Remote Commander, you can
control up to 8 components, including
your TV, VCR, DVD, DVR, CD, RCVR,
etc.
Centralized control of Sony AV
components with this one Remote
Commander
The Remote 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
The Remote Commander also recognizes
the preset codes for most major brands
components, as well as Sony. Just select
the corresponding codes to control all
your AV components.
Learning function lets you program
other remote control signals you may
need
The Remote Commander can learn the
remote control infrared signals of
non-preset components. The Remote
Commander can learn remote control
signals (infrared signals only) of other
devices such as air conditioners, lights,
etc. (some specific appliances or
functions may not be available).
System Control function executes a
series of actions (a macro) by
pressing one button
In addition to the XPRESS function, more
settings can be programmed to perform a
series of actions (a macro) just by
pressing one button. You can program up
to 8 System Control functions.
Furthermore, you can program a series of
actions (a macro) to other buttons as a
single step of an XPRESS function or
component operation.
Label function lets you display the
comment assigned to each button
By registering a comment (up to 12
letters) using “AX1400 Remote Editor”
for each button, you can display the
comment when you press the button.

When to replace the batteries
•Operating Instructions (1)
•Warranty Card (1)
* Do not attempt to play this CD-ROM in an
audio CD player.
Alkaline batteries will last up to 5
months (a Sony TV turned on/off up to
approx. 300 times per day). If the Remote
Commander does not operate properly,
the batteries are getting weak and E
appears on the screen. When the screen
dims or the button illumination grows
dim, the batteries are getting weak, and
need to be replaced.
Notes on replacing the batteries
• Do not take more than one hour to replace
the batteries. Otherwise, your unit settings
(page 20) will be initialized.
• Do not attempt to recharge dry batteries.
• Do not carry dry batteries together with coins
or other metallic objects. This can generate
heat if the positive and negative terminals of
the batteries accidentally come into contact
with metallic objects.
• When you are not going to use the unit for a
long time, remove the batteries to avoid
damage from battery leakage and corrosion.
• Do not use different types of batteries at the
same time.
• When you replace the batteries, replace them
both with new ones.

Operating
Operating the Remote
Commander
There are two ways to operate the
components on the Remote Commander
(RM-AX1400).
• XPRESS operation: You can operate
multiple AV components related to a
specific task, such as “watching a
DVD,” or “watching a digital satellite,”
etc. This is called an “XPRESS
function.”
• Single component operation: You can
operate each AV component
individually (page 17).
Caution
Before you operate the Remote Commander,
determine all settings for your components and
necessary XPRESS functions by “AX1400
Remote Editor” on your PC. See the Help file of
“AX1400 Remote Editor” for details.
What is the XPRESS
function?
The XPRESS function is an executable
series of actions that can operate several
AV components by pressing just one
button.
For example, you have to perform the
following operations sequentially to
watch a DVD using a TV, amplifier/
receiver, and a DVD player.
1 Turn on the DVD player.
2 Turn on the TV.
3 Set the appropriate input mode of the
TV.
4 Turn on the amplifier/receiver.
5 Set the appropriate input selector of the
amplifier/receiver.
6 Start DVD playback.
By setting the above actions as an
XPRESS function, you can watch a DVD
by simply pressing one button.
Also, the XPRESS function can memorize
the status of power on/off, input selector
for each component, and send a signal to
synchronize the status which you want
without reference to the component’s
status.

Commander’s button.
• Check that you are aiming the Remote Commander directly at
the component, and that there are no obstructions between the
Remote 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.
The video/audio component’s
volume is not controlled by the
Remote Commander.
Additional Information
Trouble with operation mode
• If your video components are connected to an audio component,
see the Help menu provided in “AX1400 Remote Editor.”
• You have assigned another component which was originally set
as TV or RCVR at the factory. In this case, the volume cannot be
controlled when you select a component other than TV or
RCVR.

correct order.
• Try changing the orientation of the Remote 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.
• The component codes are changed or new signals have been
learned for a 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.

Even if I operate an XPRESS
function, the TV does not turn
on, or it turns off.
• The Remote Commander memorizes the status of the
component’s input select and power on/off. However, if you
turn on/off the component with its own remote control or
operate the component directly, it will not recognize the current
component status. In this case, press the SYNC-UP button to
synchronize with the status of the current component and the
Remote Commander.
• If the TV turns off by its own Sleep function, the Remote
Commander does not recognize its status. Turn off the TV with
the Remote Commander.
Even if I operate an XPRESS
function, the source component
does not turn on, or it turns off.
• The Remote Commander memorizes the status of the

between the component’s power-on signal and input switch
signal is short. Set the interval (delay time) longer.
• Start macro is not executed properly if the interval (delay time)
between component’s input select signal is short. Set the interval
(delay time) longer.
Trouble with setting mode
Problem
Solution
The Remote Commander fails
to learn remote control signals.
• When learning, place your component’s remote control and
Remote Commander (RM-AX1400) of about 1-3 inches (3-8 cm)
apart.
• Check the remaining battery power of both remote units. If low,
replace with new ones.
• Avoid learning in places under direct sunlight or strong
fluorescent light.
• When you program 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. another rooms, etc.).
• Perform the Learning procedure after turning off any nearby
apparatus, such as an air-conditioner or infrared headphones.
• The Remote Commander may fail to learn remote control signals
near plasma TVs. Avoid learning near plasma TVs or turn off
the plasma TV when learning.
• The Remote Commander may fail to learn remote control signals
under strong fluorescent light.
• The Remote Commander may fail to learn remote control signals
if the component generates interference. In this case, move away
from the component when programming the Remote
Commander.
I cannot operate a component
even after I programmed
remote control signals with the
“learning” function.
If a noise is included in the learned signals, you may not operate a
component. In this case, refer to “The Remote Commander fails to
learn remote control signals” above.
The setting mode
unintentionally quits while
setting up.
If you do not operate for more than 60 seconds during setting
mode, the Remote Commander automatically exits the setting
mode and turns off. Perform the next operation step within 60
seconds.
Problem
Solution
I want to use an XPRESS
function for multi-purpose
components (VCR+DVD,
TV+VCR, DVD+RCVR (receiver),
etc.).
When you have a multi-purpose component (such as a DVD/VCR
combo), select only one of either component type. For example, in
the case of a DVD/VCR combo, select “DVD” or ”VCR.” If you
select both components, the XPRESS function will not work
properly.
I want to set a DVD player for
both XPRESS-DVD and
XPRESS-CD.
You can set multiple XPRESS functions for one component. For
example, when you watch a DVD, you can set the sound to output
from the TV. Or, when you listen to a CD, you can set the sound to
output from the RCVR (Receiver/Amplifier).
My PC cannot recognize the
USB connection.
• Make sure to install the USB driver properly (page 10).
• If the connection goes thorough a HUB, some PCs do not recognize
it. In this case, connect it directly to the USB port of your PC.
• If “E” is shown in the display, replace the batteries with new
ones and reconnect the Remote Commander to your PC. If your
PC still cannot recognize the USB connection, restart your PC.
