Just wondering if I'm doing something wrong here but I see a lot of missing codes for my devices.

Mainly my Bluray SOny BDP-S770
Onkyo S5400

and what is the selection for IPOD and Wii?

I can go the learning route but you'd think as good as this remote is codes would be up to date. I mean Logitech's codes are current. Just sayin

You first had issues even getting the software to work (I don't remember ending where you got the software, I believe the question was asked though). You are now having trouble simply finding the right codes. There are reasons that this is dealer only software. You do have to have the proper knowledge and training to properly set up a remote. I am not saying it cannot be learned, but it should NEVER be compared to a Harmony. EVER.

With that out of the way, have you tried other Sony Bluray codes? Manufacturers do not create new codes for every model that is released. Just because Harmony lists that model number does not mean the codes are any different. The Onkyo you have is a home theater in a box. Not the greatest quality but will work. The receiver should have its own model number, and not the model number of the whole kit. I am not even sure what you mean by "what is the selection of the IPOD and Wii"

As good as this remote is, it should never, and I mean NEVER be mentioned I the same sentence as a Harmony. Just sayin!

You guys really need to chill with the whole professional software thing. You treat this like it's a national secret. Knowledge is all out there guys. The days of yesterday you "professionals" could get away with hoarding knowledge but today it's all out there for all to learn and practice with. Just look at Home Depot and Lowes.... I'm sure the professionals , contractors etc were upset about losing the abundant jobs most homeowners who do a little homework can do on their own. For you guys charging $75-$100 an hour to do this...shame on you! So suck it up a bit when a DIY gets the motivation to learn on his own. If you don't want to help just simply don't respond. Your negative comments are not going to deter me. It doesn't matter where I got the software from. I have it and that's that.

As far as what I mean by the selection for IPOD and Wii I'm talking about the IR Data From: field. There's no category that fits under those two devices. and what about Air conditioning units? These all have to be entered manually by using the learn feature?

Also I'm aware of trying the higher generic ONKYO numbered models but I don't yet have the remote to test with(ordered it today). I'm simply getting a head start. I read the manual and I'm learning...

As far the ONKYO HTIB I kept the receiver and ditched the speakers for Polks with a 7.1 setup. Sounds very nice imo. But that's neither here nor there. I did find another product code HTP-590 but that isn't listed either.

I just figured with as much money as people pay into this whether other codes are the same or not, urc could take time to update the list.

Well since you feel you can learn, be my guest. It amazes me how time and time again, people want to buy a product that is not designed for them, but feel they are entitled to it because they circumvent the system. You obviously did not get the software through proper channels. There are proper channels for a DIYer to get it, and that proper channel is where they should be getting their support. I see no reason why I or others that have taken the time to go through training, learn, and support this product should help someone who bought their remote online, my guess is Amazon, and now wants us to help. Sorry. I am not hoarding anything. I am following the rules.

I wanted to add that I have helped many on this sit. Many DIYer's, many of which purchased from an authorized dealer who didn't support them, and I felt bad and wanted to offer my help. Some people bought without knowing the policies, and again I felt bad and wanted to help them get their product working. I have even programmed remotes and sent the files to a couple users. Had you purchased the remote legitimately and/or obtained the software through the proper channels and just needed some help, I would have been happy to help. When you danced around the issue of where you got the software, that spelled out exactly how you got it.

why do you refer to yourself as "we"?   are you part of the Borg collective?  you would think that one of you would have some URC programming knowledge that you could assimilate into the whole.

The Wii remotes use Bluetooth.

iPods don't have remotes. iPod docks use the same Apple IR remote and codes as every other Apple product.

Hi I can point you to discrete IR codes for IPOD

there are 6 codes for the iPod ( any apple IR control including MAC Book and so on)

RC home location : files > pronto > discrete > apple > IPOD Remotes

I hope the system you are working with has a cut an past feature like crestron
to import discrete pronto style discrete IR - CODES

You would cut and copy the six codes ( or import ) them into your system
they do work for Crestron systems and should work for other universal control systems as well. Now there is a professional system solution Crestron , Pronto
and easy o learn as well

If knowledge is out, it has not made it to you yet. Those are pretty elementary level questions. It blows my mind you seek help from professionals then criticize them for making a living. For your information, the codes you seek ARE in the database. You just need to understand how to get them. Also, you shouldn't root for people to lose their jobs, that is just bad karma. I think URC realizes that it's near impossible for installers to make money anymore on this line and that is why there is the total control solution. Nobody cares if you have the software - with those questions you are asking no jobs are getting taken anytime soon. Good luck.

Still doesn't hurt to post. He will probably be back to check on other comments
