Hello everyone, I need help... I have a Pioneer VSX-D608 receiver without a remote. I got a Pioneer AXD-1385 programmable remote (with learning button), can anyone tell me how to set up / program this remote to work with my receiver? All help will be greatly appreciated because the actual remote for my unit is around $80 on ebay, and I can't afford that.

Well the remotes, what you have and what you need, look entirely different . . .



. . . so on the face of it, it looks unlikely you'll get the remote you have to operate your receiver, but without a copies of the manuals (which I've not been able to find) one cannot be sure.

N.B.
Your remote was originally supplied with the models VXS-D503/503S/603/603S, and it's likely the learning function is pretty rudimentary.

If a person had the codes, would this remote work? Could someone use a philips
universal remote to operate a VSX-D608?

If you're just looking for a universal remote to run the D608, nearly any remote made by UEI can do it--although you would probably need to enter some 5 digit codes onto some of the buttons.

Many Radio Shack remotes, Comcast, the Atlas remotes used by many other cable companies, OneForAll, some Vizio, some RCA, etc. Brand new remotes include the RCA RCRP05B ($20 Best Buy), and OneForAll URC-8820 and 10820 (less than $20 on the web and also at Sears).

The complete set of IR signals accepted by the D608 is known, and nearly any UEI remote can be manually programmed to send all the codes. If you want to go this route, I can help you with any manual programming.

What you won't get is buttons labeled with Pioneer Audio specific names.

Dear 3FG, Hey what remote would you suggest to operate my Pioneer D608 receiver, Pioneer cd player, and pioneer dual tape deck?

The three mentioned above are probably the best shot. But post the model numbers of the CD and dual (audio?) tape unit. Maybe we can tell for sure.

The model numbers help a lot--perhaps you don't think of it this way, but that isn't a CD player, that's a CD changer.

Anyway, I don't see an exact match, but I'm very sure that we can make this work. Pioneer is very consistent in the way they assign IR code, so once we have the individual function codes for a type of component, we can expect that other component have the same codes.

For the CD, the closest match is a PD-F905, and hifi-remote has all the codes for each function. Many older remotes have setup code CD or Video 0032 and that will control most of the functions.  (Protocol is Pioneer, device 162). You can assign the missing functions by using the keymove feature of UEI remotes. However, you also need to control a dual cassette deck, and finding remotes that will control both is a little harder.

For the dual cassette, a thread here from 2005   (post by edmund, a long time and frequent poster) lists setup and function codes which will control both Deck A and Deck B.   (Protocol is Pioneer, device 161). However, the remotes which have these setup codes built-in wouldn't be easy to find, because cassette decks haven't been manufactured for some time.

Instead, your best course of action is to buy one of the following remotes, and then spend a half hour or so entering 5 digit numbers to assign each function to a button on the remote.  It's not hard.

The remotes which can be programmed to control both the CD changer and the dual cassette deck, as well as the receiver are:

OneForAll URC-8820N and 10820N  Make sure the suffix is N and not B00.  Available at Sears around $20.  This remote has setup code 0032, which will do most of the functions for the CD.  So this remote is the easiest to setup, but it is critical not to get one with a B00 suffix. 

RCA RCRFP05B     Available at Best Buy and some Walgreens $20. CD is accessible through setup codes Video 1023/1123.  Safest because there is no possibility of getting the wrong model.

Radio Shack 15-133,134,135  Discontinued, but will work.

If you prefer buing from the internet, the OneForAll and RCA are easily available, and you may find the Radio Shack ones also.    

For the tape, I think every function will need to be assigned to a button by entering a 5 digit EFC.

If you decide to go this route, I wil post the tables of function names and the 5 digit EFCs that you would need to enter.
