Remote Programming Code for Yamaha

Delta_Charlie
I've Been Here Awhile

I am attempting to program the Rogers Remote (5 button) to work with a Yamaha Audio Receiver RX-V765. I have tried the recommended codes and they did not work. I tried ``blinking back`` the code. I found that code 0376 will turn the receiver on  but not turn it off. Also code 2467 will turn the receiver off but not on... both codes cause some of the remote keys to  operate various functions of the Audio Receiver. So it seems that neither of these codes work properly.

 

Any suggestion

Re: Remote Programming Code for Yamaha

I have previously been to that support page, located the correct remote, entered the receiver make and model. I entered the recommended code, it didn't work. It recommended more codes,  (about ten of them) and I tried them all. None worked. Then I found two code numbers that half worked. I found the codes by using the scanning method. Then found the the actual numbers by blinking back the codes. So... if nothing else it confirms that I have read the instructions and that I have the ability to apply the information.

 

Any other ideas??

It may simply be that the remote doesn't have the exact codes for that vintage. The fact that the codes either turn it on or off but not both means that the Yamaha is using disrceet codes for the IR. Manufacturers do that so the equipment can be easily integrated with custom homes. There is not a lot you can do short of going to a 3rd party remote. Just for kicks though, you may want to exchange the remote just in case URC has updated them in the last little bit. Just make sure you get the programming book as well in case it contains a new code not yet listed on that site.

This thread is marked as solved, yet I fail to see a solution. I'm having the same problem with a new Yamaha reciever & I'm finding it hard to believe that after all these years. I thought I could add seperate on/off codes under unused device buttons, but alas the ON code above isn't being accepted by my remote.

Any suggestions?

Re: Remote Programming Code for Yamaha

Hello @dayzed007,

 

Have you tried the CH+ method as stated in the set up section of the remote on the site? It is definitely possibly that the available codes won't work sometimes on your reciever. See the instructions in the link here. You can also see another user's experience who had a code issue here

 

Thanks, 

RogersHassam 

 

 

Re: Remote Programming Code for Yamaha

Hassam,

Thanks for your response.  I did infact try the CH+ method, but as you'll see in the thread; yamaha appears to use a different signal for ON vs OFF.  Therefore using the CH+ method I have managed to program my remote to turn the reciever OFF, however I have no way of programming the ON function.

 

My hope was simply to program the ON function into one of my empty device buttons (IOW - AUD=OFF, and DVD=ON), however since all the programming instuctions work only for the OFF programming I cannot figure out how to set the ON button (CH+ feature doesn't seem to work in reverse).  All I think I need is a code to turn the unit ON, but no one even admits that there is a problem here.

 

I've tried calling Rogers Support, who simply told me it was a Yamaha problem, and Yamaha tells me its a problem stemming from the manafuactur of the remote (Atlas).  Yamaha claims they have nothing to do with the remote codes and therefore can't advise (in fact they told me they are tired of Rogers consistently pointing customers their way!).  Also since the remote manufactures won't talk to the consumer and put all the responsibility on Rogers, I end up in a circle back here 😞

 

So what I need help with is one of the following;

1) Proper instruction to program the Rogers remote to turn a Yamaha RX-V679 ON and OFF

or

2) The actual seperate codes needed to turn the unit ON and OFF (and I'll figure it out from there)

 

Can you put me in touch with the remote manufacture to let me sort this out once and for all?

 

(FYI, the link you shared regarding another users issue is simply his personal version of the regular CH+ instructions, nothing special)

For some reason I never saw this thread before until you resurrected it, even though several years ago I had the same problem when I inherited my son's Yamaha RX-V757. Like you, I found that the code which worked (1276 in my case) only turned the receiver OFF but had no effect on turning it ON. I had given up and just used its own remote when I wanted to use it. On reading the initiating post on this thread I saw that the originator had found a different code which turned his receiver ON. So I tried to repeat that.

On reading the remote users guide, I saw that to control a 2nd Audio device using either VCR or DVD button, required first re-assigning one of those buttons to control an audio device. (Did you do this?)

I did this for my VCR button then started inputting codes and found that the same code , 0376 that the thread originator had found, also turned my receiver ON. 

So I can turn the receiver ON using the VCR and Power buttons and I can turn it OFF using the AUD and Power buttons. 

Since the Yamaha receiver has separate System Power (ON) and Standby(OFF) , they obviously use different codes.

Having different buttons for ON and OFF means that programming the Rogers remote for sequential device Power on and off using the  Master Power Key, will not work because the 2 actions for the receiver will cancel each other out.

Thanks theArcher.

 

What you achieved is exactly what I'm trying to do.  I tried the same again last night, but unfortunately the code 0376 doesn't seem to work for me.  The folks at UEI suggested I tried the code 0176, but again no luck.  So I've tossed it back to them to dig out more codes for me.

 

As a tip, you could successfully use a Master Power Key simply by sequencing them correctly.  Yes they will cancel each other out if they are in the wrong order, but if you program the receiver to turn OFF before it turns ON you should have no problem at the start, and when you want to turn the unit off simply point at your leg (couch) once it turns off and before it can turn on again 🙂  Alittle archaic, I know, but it's better than grabbing another remote.

Sorry it didn't work for you. You didn't confirm that you had done the re-assignment of the DVD (or VCR) button.

Re: Remote Programming Code for Yamaha

Sorry, yes I did the reassignment.

Re: Remote Programming Code for Yamaha

For anyone following this thread, I have managed to get two separate solutions;

 

  1. The more complex short term solution came from Yamaha using HDMI
  2. The more complex long term solution came from UEI, the manufacture of the remote (no HDMI requirement)

(thanks to Rogers for not even trying)

 

Let me explain;

1. Yamaha taught me that when all devices are HDMI, many brands learn to play nice and use HDMI controls (new to me), meaning that when set up and you turn on/off one device, then the others turn on/off as well via the
HDMI cables and not the remote.  There are many more advanced functions that HDMI controls can preform as well, but in my case on/off is sufficient :-).  Since my TV is Panasonic with Vierra Link (their name for HDMI control), and the AVR is Yamaha (no proprietary name for HDMI control) I was in luck since they play nice together.  Simply a matter of enabling the controls in both settings and in my case restarting everything.

 

Panasonic plays well with the rogers remote, so I simply made sure my remote turns on both the cable box and the TV, then the TV in turn turns on the Yamaha.  Granted there is a slight delay for the last part to happen, but it sure beats digging out another remote each time.  The off function on the other hand is real quick since TV doesn't need to boot up first. (and/or BTW, I'm not sure if it's necessary since HDMI control also handles volume, but I left the AUD 1276 code programmed to help ensure that the volume lock stays on yamaha).

 

2. UEI, this works, but requires you to get used to pressing a different button to turn the system ON vs OFF.  In a nutshell you need to do advanced programming functions to input the on/off of the yamaha, and then assign separate Master Power buttons to ensure they don't override each other.  The instructions I was given is pasted in from UEI;

 

The code to turn your Yamaha on is Audio code 1276 with 00248 manually programmed. You need to program any key you are not using in Audio or VCR (where ever you have the 1276 programmed that you want on to come from). Then you need to program that key manually using the instructions below with 00248 but you cannot use the actual power key because of the limitation of the remote.This is a one time setup and does not need to be repeated every time you want to power the Yamaha on
 
Now, you can setup the master power macro key to turn the Yamaha on OR off, but not both on the same master power key. You can however, setup another key that you are not using to do a master power off for example. The master power macro can be set up on any key that supports macros using the same procedure found here http://www.urcsupport.com/html.php?page_id=759 replacing step 3 with the desired macro key. Please keep in mind if you do this the keys programmed with macros will always send the macro no matter what mode you are in so the chosen key needs to be one that is not used at all in any mode. This is the best that can be done based on the limitations of the Atlas remote. 
 
I will give you an example using the AUD mode and the F1 and F2 keys (these key may be labeled differently on your remote and F1 is left of the On Demand key as you are looking at the remote and F2 is to the right of On Demand)
 
Program the AUD key with 1276
 
Press AUD (one blink)
Press and hold setup for 3 seconds until the AUD LED blinks twice
Press the digit 1-2-7-6 (one blink after the digits 1-2-7, two blinks after the 6)
 
Press the AUD key and manually program the F1 key with 00248 like instructed below making sure you get two blinks after pressing F1 the second time.
 
Press Audio, (one blink)

Press SETUP and hold it down again till the indicator light blinks twiceEnter code 994, (two blinks)
Press SETUP for one blink onlyEnter code 00248 (one blink after each digit press) Press F1 (two blinks)

 
Now make sure the Yamaha is off then test by aiming the remote at the Yamaha and pressing the AUD key then F1. Does the Yamaha power on? If not, there is nothing more I can do to assist you further. If it does power on continue with my example. 
 
Now we are going to program the Master Power key to turn all devices on including the Yamaha. This will only turn the Yamaha on, not off.
 
Press and hold setup for 3 seconds until the LED blinks twice
Press 9-9-5 (two blinks)
Press Master Power key once (one blink)
Press CBL-POWER-TV-POWER-AUD-F1-DVD-POWER-VCR-POWER-CBL 
Press and hold setup for 3 seconds until the LED blinks twice
 
Now if you want to create a power off macro that will power off all devices including the Yamaha we will use the F2 key in this example and assume the AUD POWER key turns the Yamaha off already.
 
Press and hold setup for 3 seconds until the LED blinks twice
Press 9-9-5 (two blinks)
Press the F2 key once (one blink)
Press CBL-POWER-TV-POWER-AUD-POWER-DVD-POWER-VCR-POWER-CBL 
Press and hold setup for 3 seconds until the LED blinks twice
Now pressing F2 in any mode should power all the devices off if  they are all on. 
 
The devices you want included or the order of those devices powering can be changed in the sequence. Let's say you don't want the VCR to power at all and you want the TV to turn on first. Here is the sequence you would use TV-POWER-CBL-POWER-AUD-POWER-DVD-POWER-CBL

 

I hope this helps someone down the road from hitting the same road block I did.

 

As an FYI, I will add one more post with information I was given  from UEI which includes more advanced codes for anyone with the inclination to make their rogers remote program advanced functions for their yamaha AVR.

Anyone know how to do this advanced programming/key remapping on the new URC2125B RF remotes. I am unable to use these same instructions. Looks like they have changed things for the new remote.

Remote Programming Code for Yamaha for VOLUME only

 

If the issue is to get your Yamaha receiver VOLUME working through the Rogers remote, this will make your day:

 

1. Press and hold SETUP until the mode key blinks twice.
2. Press the VOLUME UP key.
3. Press the mode key for the device you wish to use for volume control. (This would be the Audio key.). The key will blink twice to confirm.

 

Try the volume control on the Rogers remote, and you will see that it is your Yamaha Receiver's volume control!

 

To make a long story short, I tried 18 websites and 22 codes to make the Rogers remote work a Yamaha receiver, and everything failed.  After hours of aggravation, I finally found the 3 simple steps above.  It worked instantly!  This is for Volume control only.  In my travels, I did not come across anything that would turn the receiver both off AND on, and of course the volume control still wouldn't work.

 

Just a note about turning electronics on and off, doing this burns the bulbs out a lot faster, same as the regular old-fashioned light bulbs.  Because the cost of labour is ridiculously expensive to replace a couple of cheap bulbs, I leave my receiver on all the time so the bulbs will last as long as possible.  

 

My Rogers remote is now programmed to turn my TV and/or TV-and-box on and off, and to work the Yamaha receiver's volume control.  At last!  Whew!

 

Note, my Yamaha Receiver Model No. is RX-V379.

UPDATE, Dec 19 2019: Remote Programming Code for Yamaha Receiver

If the issue is to get your Yamaha receiver VOLUME working through the Rogers remote, this will make your day:

1. Press and hold SETUP until the mode key blinks twice.
2. Press the VOLUME UP key.
3. Press the mode key for the device you wish to use for volume control. (This would be the Audio key.). The key will blink twice to confirm.
Try the volume control on the Rogers remote, and you will see that it is your Yamaha Receiver's volume control!

If that fails,
1. Press Audio
2. Press and hold setup button until it blinks twice
3. Enter 2467
4. Press Audio
5. Test Volume.  It should work.

To make a long story short, I tried 18 websites and 22 codes to make the Rogers remote work a Yamaha receiver, and everything failed. After hours of aggravation, I finally found the 3 simple steps above, and eventually the code that works.

My Rogers remote is now programmed to turn my TV and/or TV-and-box on and off, and to work the Yamaha receiver's volume control. The remote also has to be programmed to your make of TV which codes should be on the insert in the remote package.  After that, the "cable" button should be pressed to work all of these. At last! Whew! Note, my Yamaha Receiver Model No. is RX-V379.

Re: Remote Programming Code for Yamaha

I remember now!  It is NOT a code for the receiver.  When I got my new TV, I hired a guy from the TV/stereo shop to deliver it and hook it up.  When I turned off my TV, the stereo receiver went off with it, which I didn't want.  I called the guy who directed me to a certain setting in my TV, and directed me to change that setting.  When I did, the receiver stayed on, which is what I wanted.  My point is that it is NOT a code for the receiver, it is a setting within the TV, guaranteed 100%.  The stores are closed during this pandemic so I can't get hold of the guy, but I believe you have to go into the External Device Manager settings, and put a check in the "Anynet+ (HDMI-CEC)" box.  If that's not right, I guarantee that a TV setting is the way you have to go, 1000%.  I sure wish I could get hold of the guy to confirm it.  Please let me know if this works for you.  (P.S. Further down, I have a post regarding getting the volume on the receiver to work.)
