Mistakingly changed the command code from dvd3 to dvd2 on the dvd recorder. The dvd recorder does not respond to remote control anymore. How do i get the box responding to the remote control?
Any help will be appreciated.
If you have changed the command mode on your recorder and now find the remote no longer works.
Make sure you have a new set of batteries in the remote.
1. Hold down the enter button on the remote.
2. While holding down enter button, enter the command mode code number using the number buttons.
DVD1 press number button 1
DVD2 press number button 2
DVD3 press number button 3
Hold down both the number buttons and ENTER at the same time for more than three seconds.
The default setting is DVD3 so try DVD1 or DVD2 to regain control.

You may have to reset the remote to the current command code. Here is the link for how to do that. http://community.sony.com/t5/Remote-Controls/RDR-VX525-Changed-to-DVD3-on-command-control-and-remote-won-t/td-p/158777
On the remote press the System Menu botton when opened, press Enter and scroll down to Option and press Enter then scroll down to Command, press enter and you'll find DVD1,DVD2 and DVD3 scroll down to it press Enter set or reset your unit as desired!
Indeed, I did the same thing.... I did find the answer in the manual! Here's a copy of it (pg 23):
Set the command mode for the remote so it matches the command mode for the recorder you set above. 1 Hold down ENTER 2 While holding down ENTER, enter the command mode code number using the number buttons. Command Mode Code number DVD1 number button 1 DVD2 number button 2 DVD3 number button 3 3 Hold down both the number buttons and ENTER at the same time for more than 3 seconds. 4 Let up, press RETURN, all done!
It´s is easy to solve. Your DVD was seted to DVD1. Push enter button plus 1 no remote control.
Now you are able to commnad your DVD and go to System Menu and change to DVD3 again.
After it, don´t forget to backup your remoto control to DVD3. Push enter button plus 3
Go to your DVR and manually turn the DVR off. Press the STOP button for two or three seconds. The DVR COMMAND MODE setting will display in the DVR window. (DVD1, DVD2 or DVD3)
Set the remote to the COMMAND MODE setting that was diaplayed by depressing both the remote ENTER key and the desired number key (1, 2 or 3) and holding them both at the same time for 3 seconds.
You can now use the remote to set the DVR to the desired COMMAND MODE. To do this depress SYSTEM MENU on the remote and go to SETTINGS and then COMMAND MODE. Select either DVD1, DVD2 or DVD3. Once you delect a setting that is different from what was set, your remote will stop working again.
Reset your remote to the desired COMMAND MODE by depressing the remote ENTER key and the desired number key (1, 2 or 3) and holding them both at the same time for 3 seconds. The remote should now control the DVR.
