Ir2bt Infrared to Bluetooth converter for PS3

I wanted to know if there was any way to rig the ir2bt to learn different ir signals than the ones that it is originally programmed to receive but at the same time deliver the same bluetooth commands as originally intended. The reason for this is because I, like alot of people, have a sony dvd player and the ir codes are the same as the ones for the ps2 which have been ported to the ir2bt, so when I power on my PS3 using my Harmony Remote, I also power on my sony dvd player.

SOURCE: Programming Harmony 880 Remote to Mute with CC on Sony Bravia KDL-40W4100

Do you use a Home Theater receiver along with your televison?  Are other components, such as a DVD player, VCR, Blu-ray player, etc. connected?
If so, it's possible that the Mute function on your remote is muting the sound from your receiver, and not the TV itself.
If that's the case, you'll need to look at the details of the "default" buttons for your activities, and see whether the Mute function is associated with your TV or your receiver.  If it's set for the receiver, you need to change it to be associated with the TV.

Hi. If learning the commands does not work, then you can try learning in RAW mode. To do this:

1. Click 'Learn IR' next to the icon for the device in the software.
2. At the bottom, click 'Custom'.
3. Go through the list of commands, and learn all of the buttons from the original remote by clicking 'Learn Raw'.

Hope that helps :)

I have a Sharp tv im trying to program a lg universal remote. I have no codes and can i even do that?


Universal remotes usually have a "Learn" capability.

First you need to figure out how to get into learn mode.

Then you face the Learning Remote IR LED to the current Remote LED. You select the Key or Button one the learning remote that you want to pick up, Then click the similar button on the current remote that is Teaching. The IR signal is picked up by the learner and indicates it has been received correctly.
Then the next key is done

Good Luck

My samsung led remote control has just stopped working and i can't get it to work again. I've changed the batteries and i cannot find the reset button. I've unplugged the power from the wall and still no...


We need to find out first if the remote is putting out the IR signals or not, or the problem is in the TV IR receiver module.
Testing remote control:
The remote control puts out IR (InfraRed) signal that human eyes cannot see, to find out if the remote is sending out the signal or not you just point the remote at the digital camera's Lens (Digital Camera can detect IR), you should see flashing light on the camera's screen when any one of the remote button is pushed. If you do see the flashing on the camera, then the problem is in the TV IR receiver or the main logic board; more troubleshooting with scope will be needed to look at the signals.

My remote control only works for tv on & off and volume but not to change dish channel


I experienced this problem as well. I have a dual receiver and had issues turning channels on TV2; but counld easily access the volume. After reading the Dish manual, I learned that my TV1 and TV2 remotes connect through different signals (IR = infrared for TV1; and UHF= ultra-high frequency for TV2).

Check your remote to see if there is a UHF logo at the very bottom (under the Dish Network logo). The UHF remote sends ultra-high frequency radio signals to a UHF antenna which is connected to the back panel of the receiver. Make sure that you receiver is properly dusted and then check to make certain that the UHF antenna located on the back of the receiver is positioned straight-up. When the antenna is not correctly positioned it can cause problems with your remote signals.

Harmony 890 Pro will not pair with Xbox360


The RF signal is on the XBOX is used for the controllers only.

When using the Harmony 890 with a 360, you will have to use it as an IR (infrared) device. That is the only way to use a remote with the 360. If you have an extra port on your RF extender, you can place the end on the remote senor on the 360 (located under the eject button).

I set these remotes up weekly, it is a product I recommend to people all the time!

But again, the only way to setup a remote with the 360, is to use the IR port as a standard IR remote. Since the controllers run off RF, the learn function will not work, unless you already have 360 remote control to use to do the learn function.

Hope that offers some insight. This information can also be verifies at Microsoft XBOX 360's FAQ page.

Logitech Harmony One remote is controlling 2 TiVOs at once.


Please try learning the some commands from one of the original remotes for thr tivo. If this fixes the problem, i suggest that you learn all commands from that remote.

Launch the Logitech Harmony Remote software and login to your account

1. Click on the Devices tab
2. Click on the Learn IR button for the device you want to learn command(s) to.

**NOTE: When learning new commands, there are three different options available:
-You want the Harmony Remote to learn a single command that is already listed in the software
-You want the Harmony Remote to learn more than one command at a time
-You want the Harmony Remote to learn a new command, which is not listed in the software

You want the Harmony Remote to learn a single command that is already listed in the software
a. Click on the Learn button next to the command you want to learn - Proceed to Step 5

You want the Harmony Remote to learn more than one command at a time
a. select one or more commands by clicking on the check box next to the command(s) you want to learn and then
b. click on the Learn Selected Commands button
c. Proceed to Step 5

You want the Harmony Remote to learn a new command, which is not listed in the software:
a. Scroll down to the button of the page
b. In the Learn a New Command box click on the text MyNewCommand
c. enter the name of the command you would like to teach.
d. Click on the (Learn New Command) button
e. Proceed to Step 5

5. Follow the onscreen directions for learning commands, plugging in your Harmony remote when asked and lining up your original remote to the Harmony as illustrated on the screen.
6. When a command is successfully learned, a check mark will appear next to it. If learning more than one command, the software will then prompt you to learn the next command.
7. The commands that were learned should now be identified as from "Your original remote" and highlighted in turquoise.
8. When you have finished teaching the commands, click Done button to save your changes
9. Click on the Update Remote button to update your remote


If this does not work, try :


To teach commands for your Device that did not work properly in normal mode:

1. Click the Devices button on your home page.
2. Select the Device you wish to learn commands to.
3. Select Learn Infrared Commands.
4. Click Custom. The page will reload.
5. Select the boxes for commands you would like to teach, and click Learn Selected as Raw.

NOTE: When teaching each command, press the button on the original remote for as long as required to control the device. The commands will be learned with the exact format that is sent by the original remote.

If you have any trouble teaching the commands in RAW, complete the following steps:

1. Verify you are pointing the original remote at bottom end of your remote, and are holding the remotes 2-4 inches apart.
2. Minimize the amount of light that could interfere with the learning process by covering the distance between the remotes. Block out sunlight, or turn off the lights.
3. Check that you have installed new batteries in the original remote you are trying to use to learn commands. If the batteries are low, the signal coming from your original remote may be too weak for the remote to detect.
4. Be sure to hold down the button on the original remote for at least 1-2 seconds, otherwise the signal may be too short for the remote to process.
5. If you continue to have trouble teaching the commands, start with the remotes 2 inches apart. Then try again with, slightly increasing the distance each time (2.5 inches, 3 inches, etc).
6. Vary the angle at which the original remote is pointing at the bottom of the remote.
7. Ensure the device's original remote is sending infrared (IR) commands.

NOTE: The original remote is sending RF or UHF commands from the original remote if it will control the device from another room, through a wall).

Harmony One remote won't input channels very well


Most DirecTV receivers are able to be controlled with IR (infrared) or RF (Radio Frequency) signals. DirecTV receivers are usually set to be controlled by RF.

To control a DirecTV PVR / Satellite, it needs to be set to respond to an IR Remote:
1. On the original DirecTV remote press the Menu button
2. From the Menu press Select on Settings
3. Select Remote from the left menu
4. Press Select on the IR/RF Setup button
5. Use the Up or Down arrows to change from RF to IR
6. Press Select to save

Note: Some models of DirecTV may have different steps to enable IR. You may need to refer to your user manual


Harmony Remotes only control IR signals. so this is not the issue. The Harmony Remote should control the tv. the original remotr needs to be tested for IR or RF.

The device we are working on that is not being controlled by the Harmony Remote could be operating on RF (Radio Frequency) signals. Harmony Remote can only control the devices that operate on IR (Infrared) signals. Most devices that work on RF signals can be changed to operate on IR signals, and this usually could be done by changing the remote control command mode to IR from RF.
Please follow the steps listed below to test to see if the device is being operated on RF or IR signal:
1- We need to use the original remote for that device to complete this task
2- Using your hand or a thick and wide object (wall, pillow, book...), cover the top part of the original remote. In other words block the direct positioning between the original remote and the device.
3- After you cover the top part of the original remote (or used an alternate way to block the direct communication of the original remote and the device), try pressing the buttons on the original remote to see if it can still send commands that can be received by the original remote. You can try powering on/off your device using the original remote when the original remote is being blocked by your hand or another object.
4- If you still can control the device using the original remote without a point of sight, your device is being operated on RF signals. If you cannot control the device without a point of sight, then it is IR operated.
5- If the device is RF operated, please change the command receiving mode to IR rather than RF and test the Harmony Remote.
6- If the device is IR operated, please contact us again by replying to this email and let us know if none of the commands or some certain commands are not working for that device.

You can usually find the information on how to switch the device to be operated on IR signals rather than RF signals, through the user manual for your device, or by contacting technical support of the manufacturer for that device, or even sometimes reaching the information simply by doing a basic research over the internet.

IR frequency determination


The remote could be using RF, which is why your Niles equipment cannot handle it. There is no way to duplicate the RF or convert it to an IR signal.

If the remote is using IR, make sure the batteries are full and the light is low when you are learning the codes with tne Niles equpment. There is no way if it's IR that the freq is > 100.

Harmony 890 channels and volume wont work


Sometimes you need to go into the menu page for the device that doesn't work and you need to "learn" the keys to the new remote. "Learn" meaning pressing the buttons on your original remote with the Infrared part of the remote facing the Infrared part of the new remote. This will help the Harmony remote duplicate the signal to the device you want to operate.

I just can't get it to work, new batteries and all.


First check if the remote control is sending an infrared signal. If the LED is flashing, this does not mean the Remote control is sending the IR signal. There is a separet Infrared LEd that sends the signal. To check the IR, point the remote control in a video camera or any camera with real-time monitor (phone cam, webcam, etc.) and press any button. You will see a white flash coming from the Remote control. thjis works best if the camera is black&white, for color camera, the IR is still visible but quite faint. Another way of checking the IR (if you do not have a camera) is to press the RM in front of another device with remote control and while doing so, press the correct remote control . If that other does not function or functions erratically, then the remote control in question is emitting an IR signal. If there is no IR coming out, the solder conection of the IR LED might be the problem. It is rare that the IR LED will be damage because the remote control is only 3 volts. If the remote control does emit an IR signal, then the TV remote reciever is defective. I had this problem with a CD player that I have fixed. The IR reciever looks like an LED (dark colored) with three pins (V+, signal, ground). Cost less than $3
