Sony are probably the most protective manufacturer of this kind of information. All manufacturers carrying a DVD logo are obliged to say "no" but will normally intentionally leak this to boost sales, particularly in non-US areas.


But try this:

1. In order for this hack to work, you will have to send an infra-red code to your player with a OneForAll remote such as the OneForAll 6 (or URC7560) or OneForAll 4 (or URC7740) or OneForAll 4 Digital, or One For All 5 Digital (or URC 7555) with the following instructions:

  • Press the DVD button
  • Hold down the Magic button until the unit performs a double LED flash
  • Configure your remote using the setup code 0 5 3 3
2. On your DVD recorder, using the official Sony remote, select the System-Menu option 3. On your DVD recorder, using the official Sony remote, select the Setup option 4. On your DVD recorder, using the official Sony remote, select the Options option 5. On your DVD recorder, using the official Sony remote, select the Command-Mode option 6. On your DVD recorder, using the official Sony remote, select the DVD1 option 7. On the official Sony remote, set the DVD1 option for the Command-Mode switch, under the sliding cover 8. Verify that both the official Sony remote control and your OneForAll remote control can power off and on your DVD player 9. Program your OneForAll remote with the following instructions:
  • Hold down the Magic button until the unit performs a double LED flash
  • Configure your remote using the setup code 9 9 4 or 0 0 9 9 4 if your remote only accepts 5 digit codes
  • Press the Magic button once
  • Configure your remote using the setup code 1 8 9 or 0 0 1 8 9 if your remote only accepts 5 digit codes
  • Press the 1 button once, a double LED flash should occur
10. Program your OneForAll remote with the following instructions:
  • Hold down the Magic button until the unit performs a double LED flash
  • Configure your remote using the setup code 9 9 4 or 0 0 9 9 4 if your remote only accepts 5 digit codes
  • Press the Magic button once
  • Configure your remote using the setup code 2 5 5 or 0 0 2 5 5 if your remote only accepts 5 digit codes
  • Press the 2 button once, a double LED flash should occur
11. Program your OneForAll remote with the following instructions:
  • Hold down the Magic button until the unit performs a double LED flash
  • Configure your remote using the setup code 9 9 4 or 0 0 9 9 4 if your remote only accepts 5 digit codes
  • Press the Magic button once
  • Configure your remote using the setup code 0 9 5 or 0 0 0 9 5 if your remote only accepts 5 digit codes
  • Press the 3 button once, a double LED flash should occur
12. Program your OneForAll remote with the following instructions:
  • Hold down the Magic button until the unit performs a double LED flash
  • Configure your remote using the setup code 9 9 4 or 0 0 9 9 4 if your remote only accepts 5 digit codes
  • Press the Magic button once
  • Configure your remote using the setup code 2 2 1 or 0 0 2 2 1 if your remote only accepts 5 digit codes
  • Press the 4 button once, a double LED flash should occur
13. Program your OneForAll remote with the following instructions:
  • Hold down the Magic button until the unit performs a double LED flash
  • Configure your remote using the setup code 9 9 4 or 0 0 9 9 4 if your remote only accepts 5 digit codes
  • Press the Magic button once
  • Configure your remote using the setup code 0 7 9 or 0 0 0 7 9 if your remote only accepts 5 digit codes
  • Press the 5 button once, a double LED flash should occur
14. Place your DVD player into Standby mode 15. Press the buttons 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 on your OneForAll remote control, in order, one at a time 16. Your DVD player should show the words TIMER OK 17. Press the buttons 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 on your OneForAll remote control, in order, one at a time 18. Your DVD player should return itself to Standby mode 19. Remove the batteries for significant period of time to wipe the programmed codes on your OneForAll remote
