Hello...

I recently bought a Panasonic SA-HT75 DVD/CD Receiver without a remote. I hopefully bought an RCA RCNO4GR universal for $3, but can't seem to get it to work with this system.

1. Is it just me? Will this cheaper remote work and I just don't know what I'm doing (even though I followed the manual's instructions)?

2. If it won't in fact work, what's a cheap alternative that will give me access to the audio functions? The receiver seems to be trapped in stereo mode and I'd like to access the surround speakers. Cheap is the key word here, as this system will only be used infrequently.

It doesn't have audio codes in, so no.

Hello... I'm not exactly sure what you mean. What doesn't have codes? The remote itself is incapable of being used with a cd system, even if it's a cd/dvd hybrid receiver?

You can control this box this pretty cheaply using a Comcast cable remote.  Some other cable company remotes will work as well.   eBay has lots of these, and you can usually get a new remote shipped for $6. Probably you will need to do some manual programming to get the functions you need.   

First, use setup code 31308 (or AUX 1308 if the remote has a grey OK/Select button). That should control volume and other mainstream controls.  To switch from stereo to surround, you'll probably need to do some experiments.  Unfortunately, Panasonic HT systems don't all use the identical IR signals for these sorts of functions.

Choose a button on the Comcast to use for stereo/surround.  You can program this individual button to send any signal used by Panasonic HT systems using the 994 command.  There's a good chance that EFCs 60726 or 44087 will work.

However, we don't know for sure the correct EFC for your HT system.  If the above EFCs don't work, use the Panasonic Audio Master spreadsheet to identify other possible subdevice and OBC combinations.   You'll also need RemoteMaster.  Load this SA-HT15 upgrade, and modify the subdevice/OBC columns to values suggested in the spreadsheet.  Try the corresponding 5 digit EFCs which RM calculated.

@3FG:

Thanks so much for your detailed response. Step 1 is finding one of those cable remotes. I've started my search...
