Question about Televison & Video
When I first bought this sony hd recorder about two years ago, I changed the remote command mode to dvd1 to stop interference with other sony equipment. Recently, the remote stopped working so I bought a new one. However, the factory setting for the remote and hd recorder is dvd3, so it does not work. The manual does not show how to change the remote command mode WITHOUT a remote control. Can someone please tell me how to reset the command mode to dvd3 in order to use the remote control? Thank you.
Hold the "Enter" button along with the numeric button for the command mode you selected in Setup. This will reset the remote to work in the command mode you selected (also lets you get back into System Menu to try other command modes). If you pick a different command mode, you'll need to do this again to reset the remote to the selected mode. Found this info courtesy our friends on the Internet - no thanks to Sony's manual...

Use the procedure thats posted to GET INTO THE MENU!! I pressed enter and 1 and then was able to go into system menu and change the settings back.. I had to do it a time or two.. so there may be another step involved. i changed the settings then turned the power off and back on and it worked... you may have to hit return before you turn the power off/on.. it worked though! The original poster simply left out the part about what "Enter and 1" did.. it unlocks the remote and gets you to the menu..

Just want to thank these people for the kind time to respond to these questions. I had thought that I was to the point of trashing my recorder, since without the remote it is basically useless.
Thank you so much!!! You saved me over $100+
