Features
The RM-VL1000T 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.
Customizing 180 labels of
control keys in the dot matrix
LCD with dot matrix makes label
customizing possible. A total of
180 labels on the LCD, such as
component labels, macro labels,
etc., can be customized. A label of
up to 8 letters with digits,
characters or symbols can be
selected and displayed.
Control of 12 components
Control of a maximum of 12
components (TV, SAT, VCR, DVD,
CD, AMP, etc.) is possible.
Components are selectable with 12
keys on the LCD display by
pressing the Label Select buttons.
This Commander has an LCD
display that changes the label
display according to the selected
component.
Setting a maximum of 36
macro commands of a
maximum of 32 successive
steps
A maximum of 36 macro
commands which provide a
maximum of 32 successive steps
by pressing a single button can be
set (12 system control macros, 12
component macros and 12 timer
macros). Macro execution speed is
changeable.
All power off macro commands
for Sony components are preset at
the factory to the SONY OFF label.
Clock display and timer
function
A maximum of 12 timer macros,
timer control of automatic on/off
and other controls (such as
recording, stopping, etc.) of each
component is possible.
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 centre for
your Sony AV components.
Remote control signals for nonSony components are also
preset
This Commander is preset for
most major brands components
other than Sony. You can control
your components remotely by
setting their code numbers (page
13).
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
23).
In addition, the Commander can
learn remote control signals
(infrared signals only) of non
Audio Visual components such as
air-conditioners, lights, etc.
(Certain appliances or functions
may not be available) (page 28).
Channel macro function allows
you to select a programme
with a single button
Up to 4 key steps can be
programmed on macro labels. If
you set the key operations for
entering a programme number on
a macro label, you can select the
programme by selecting that
macro label (page 48).
LCD display with backlight
The display backlight allows
operation even in the dark.

volume of the TV or amplifier.
• If you have programmed any signal
for the 2 or % 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 2 or % 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.

Notes on learning the
signals of an airconditioner
About seasonal adjustments
If you change the settings of the
air-conditioner for the season, you
have to programme the remote
control signals of the new settings
on the Commander.
If the power-on/off operation
does not work correctly
The air-conditioner may not be
turned on or off properly with the
button or key of this Commander,
for which you have programmed
its power-on/off signal.
If the Commander can operate
only “ON” with one button or
label and “OFF” with another,
while your air-conditioner’s
remote control can operate “ON/
OFF” with a single button or label,
programme the signal on two
buttons or labels of the
Commander as follows.
1 Clear the learned power-on/off
signal from the button or label
(page 29).
2 Programme the signal
(transmitted from the poweron/off button of the airconditioner’s remote control)
for the button or label again.
3 Programme the signal from the
same button of the remote
control for another button or
label.
The two buttons or labels of the
Commander have been
programmed with the power-on
signal and the power-off signal of
the air-conditioner, respectively so
that you can operate the airconditioner with the Commander.
28
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 all the buttons on the
Commander (page 62) 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.
Changing or erasing the

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.
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 set a TV or an amplifier for
volume control setting to the TV or
AMP label displayed by default, the
signal of the preset component will
be transmitted. If you programme
any signal for the 2 or % button of
each component by “learning”, the
learned signal programmed for each
component will be transmitted.
• Even if you preset another TV or
amplifier to a component label, when
the preset data of the TV or amplifier
for volume control setting to the TV
or AMP label displayed by default
will be not cleared, the signal of the
component preset by default will be
transmitted.
But if you set another TV or amplifier
for volume control setting, its signal
will be transmitted. In this case, its
learned signal will be transmitted if
you programme any signal for the 2
or % button.
• If a TV or an amplifier set for volume
control setting has no preset data for
the 2 or % button, the signal cannot
be transmitted.
• If you preset another category of
component than a TV or an amplifier
to the component label for which the
volume control setting has been
programmed, the signal of the 2 or
% button cannot be transmitted.
• When operating a component which
has no volume data, if you have
programmed any signal for its 2 or
% button of each component by
“learning”, the learned signal
programmed for the component is
transmitted even if you try to control
the volume using the volume control
function.
• When controlling the volume of the
audio components, the signal of the
2 or % button or the learned signal
of the 2 or % button for the
amplifier is transmitted.
• When controlling the volume of the
visual components, if a TV is set for
volume control setting, the signal of
the 2 or % button or the learned
signal of the 2 or % button for the
TV is transmitted.
• When controlling the volume of the
visual components, if an amplifier is
set for volume control setting, the
signal of the 2 or % button for the
amplifier is transmitted for the TV.
But if you programme any signal for
the 2 or % button of the TV, its
learned signal is transmitted for the
TV.

transmitted when you press the Label
Select button corresponding to the
system number label.
• While programming a series of
operating commands, 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 programme more than 32
steps, the System Control setting
finishes, and the 32 steps you have
programmed are registered. If you
want to programme again, clear the
programme (page 39) and start again
from Step 1.
• The SCROLL button is not counted as
a step.
• When programming a power-on
command for the System Control
function, if you select the component
label 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

POWER key of the component.
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 Power-on and
input select may not work properly. In
this case, insert other signals like the
example below;
TV Power-on t VCR Power-on

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 select the System Macro
number label.
•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 select
the System Macro number label.
Failure to do this can result in
incorrect operation when you
select the System Macro number
label 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.

execution time of the remote control
output is different depending on the
contents of the timer execution. Or, if
the execution time arrives while the
previous timer programme is
outputted, the timer programme
begins after the execution of the

Additional Information
Precautions
•Do not drop the unit or subject
the unit to shock as malfunction
may result.
•Do not leave the unit in a
location near 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 in
such places 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
slightly moistened with water or a
mild detergent solution. Do not
use any type of solvent such as
alcohol, benzine or thinner as it
may damage the finish of the
surface.

marketed in the
European Union.
Troubleshooting
If you have problems setting up or using the Remote Commander, first
check the batteries (page 7), then check the items below.
Symptom
You cannot operate the
components.
You cannot operate the
components even after
setting the component
code numbers.
You cannot control the
volume.
The Commander fails to
learn the remote control
signals.
You cannot operate a
component even after
you programmed the
remote control signals
with the “learning”
function.
“NG” flashes five times.
Remedy
• 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
label. 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
label. In this case, it is recommended to preset again (page 13)
and change the component name on the label (page 27, 65).
• 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 buttons
do not function correctly even after you have set the
component codes, then use the learning function to
programme the remote control signals for the component
(page 23).
• 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 30).
• You have assigned another component to the TV or AMP
label (page 46). In this case, the volume cannot be controlled
when you select a component other than TV or AMP.
• 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.).
• Make sure that the Remote Commander has learned the
correct signals. If not, see “For accurate learning” (page 29)
and try the learning procedure again (page 23).
• Learning has not succeeded. After checking the following, try
learning procedure again (page 23).
- Change the distance between remote commanders.
- See “For accurate learning” (page 29).
• The component codes cannot be set. See the supplied
“Component Code Numbers” and try setting the component
codes again (page 13).

Troubleshooting (continued)
Symptom
“NG” flashes twice.
Remedy
• Learned signals or the Channel Macro function have been
programmed for the component label to which you want to
copy the settings of another component label using the
copying function (page 46). Clear the contents (page 19, 29)
and try the copying procedure again.
• You may try to programme the Power-On function (page 44)
for a component label to which the component code of a nonSony product has been set. This function is only for Sony
components.
The ‘NG’ sound is heard • Learned signals have been programmed for the label to which
twice.
you want to set the learning, Channel Macro or component
macro function. Clear the learned signals (page 19, 29) and try
setting again.
• You may select the component name for which the Channel
Macro function cannot be programmed. You can programme
the Channel Macro function of the components of which the
first digit of the four-digit preset component code number is
3, 8 or 9 (page 48).
• You may select the component function label for which the
Channel Macro function cannot be programmed. The learned
signal or the Channel Macro function have been programmed
for that label. Clear the learned signal (page 29) or the
Channel Macro function (page 50).
• The programme contents you want to change are set to be
executed by the timer. Set the timer setting in which that
programme is included not to be executed (page 58), and edit
the programme contents.
• You may try to operate the preset function (page 13) after
operating the learning function (page 23). You cannot operate
the preset function after operating the learning function.
Preset after clearing the learned signals (page 29), or preset to

function correctly.
• 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
38).
• The component codes are changed or new signals have been
learned for a label 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 42) and set a longer interval,
or adjust the series of commands by changing the order of
buttons and labels. (When programming the system control
function, you can make an interval by pressing the TIMER
button.)

- Check that the timer macro programme functions correctly
by pressing the TEST key, after programming the timer
(page 58).
- Check the location of the Commander.
• The status of each component is not suitable for operation.
(For example, you programme 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.)
