Hi folks, I am in the middle of programming my new MX980 remote. Compared to the Denon Aktis RC8000, it's a lot easier. URC's manual makes the excellent point that, when setting up a macro for something like "Watch DVD", it's a bad idea to include an ON command for a device that has a toggle on/off code. In other words, you don't want somebody to press that and turn on the DVD while at the same time turning off the TV because it is already on.

The problem is that my Sony 60XBR950 has a toggle on/off remote.  I have tried pushing every other button on the remote and only the "on" button will turn it on.  So I don't see any hope for a workaround.  If someone has isolated a discrete "on" code that will turn on the Sony TVs if off, but will not turn them off if they are on, that would be fantastic.  Otherwise I will just have to exclude the tv from any macros.

i would think the URC database had the codes you are looking for.
these are generic Sony discretes:
power on:
0000 0067 0000 000D 0060 0018 0018 0018 0030 0018 0030 0018 0030 0018 0018 0018 0030 0018 0018 0018 0030 0018 0018 0018 0018 0018 0018 0018 0018 03F6
power off:
0000 0067 0000 000D 0060 0018 0030 0018 0030 0018 0030 0018 0030 0018 0018 0018 0030 0018 0018 0018 0030 0018 0018 0018 0018 0018 0018 0018 0018 03DE

Is that a RM-Y1000 part # on the remote, and the full model # is a KDF-60XBR950? Do you have access to the software?

Sony is one of the best companies when it comes to supporting discrete commmands. For example, all of the recent Sony TVs that I've owned not only have discrete power, but they also have discrete inputs and even discrete aspect ratio settings.
