  21. How To Use The SHIFT button
  22. There are in fact two shift buttons on the Producer remotes. The "official" shift button is labelled SHIFT, and the "un-official" shift button is the SETUP key.

    The official shift buton is used to access the second pre-programmed function of buttons. For example, there is no DISPLAY button on these remotes, the DISPLAY function is now the shifted function of the PREV CH (or LAST) button. To use these features, just TAP the SHIFT button and release it, then hit the button with the function you want to use. You will notice that when you TAP the SHIFT button, a boxed [S] appears on the screen to let you know that you are in the 'shifted' mode. The remote will remain in shift mode until you tap the SHIFT key again. Shifted functions cannot be moved using the 'Key Mover' function, and you cannot program advanced codes onto shifted keys.

    There are no pre-loaded functions that are accessible using the un-official shift key, but you can program advanced codes, and perform key moves, on to keys shifted using the un-official shift key. You simply press the SETUP key before pressing the button that you are moving the function to. The remote only stays in shift mode while the one following button is pressed, you will need to tap the SETUP key before pressing each button that has a shifted function.

    NOTE: it is possible to program commands to shifted versions of the numeric keys using the un-official shift key, but in order to use them you will have to hit the SETUP button twice, or the remote will assume that you are about to enter an advanced code.

    Also, it is possible to program a function onto a button that already has a second function pre-programmed. For instance, you could program the advanced code for your VCR's TIMER onto the PREV CH button, which would mean that the button now has three functions on it. In this case, press PREV CH and it will bring up the previous channel, press SHIFT and PREV CH and it will work the display function, press SETUP and PREV CH and it will work the TIMER function.

    The following keys have functions that are 'shifted':

    CENTER REAR
    MENU PROGRAM
    SELECT CLEAR
    MUTE SLEEP
    PREV CH DISPLAY
    PAUSE X2
    PIP FREEZE PIP
    PLAY SLOW
    REW SLOW DOWN (-)
    FF SLOW UP (+)
    STOP EJECT

  23. Home Theater Mode
  24. The Home Theater button is not a regular device button (ie, you can't program a device code to it), you use the HT button to control multiple devices at once. You decide which functions you need from each of your devices. You can change certain functions depending on which devices you wish to use. The idea is that you can change the settings depending on what you are about to do. For example, you might always have the Audio mode set to control your amplifier, but you might change the PlayBack mode to either go to your VCR or your DVD player, depending on which one you are using.

    Here are the buttons controlled by each mode....

    ModeButtons
    Audio Vol+, vol-, mute
    Channel Ch+, ch-, number pad, TV/SAT, Prev Ch
    Play Back Play, stop, rewind, fast forward, pause, record
    PIP PIP,swap,move,freeze
    Menu Menu, select, arrow keys

    Here's the instructions...

    1. HOLD DOWN the SETUP button until the screen reads 'TIMED SEQ'.
    2. TAP the DOWN ARROW button twice. The screen will read 'CONFIGURE'.
    3. TAP the SELECT button once. The screen will read 'THEATR SEL'.
    4. TAP the SELECT button once.
    5. Scroll to the mode of your choice (ie, Audio, Channel, Playback, PIP or Menu).
    6. TAP the SELECT button once, the screen will display a device (TV, VCR, etc.).
    7. Choose the device button you wish to control this mode.
    8. Repeat for the remaining modes.

    NOTE: At any point you can press escape (ESC) to return to the main display.

  25. Copy One Key To Another
  26. This feature allows you to move functions from one button on the keypad to another. You cannot move FROM a shifted key. If the function you wish to move is on a shifted key, program the key using the advanced codes instead.

    If you wish to use more than one function on a single button, you will need to use the "un-official" shift button (ie, the SETUP button) rather than the actual SHIFT button.

    1. Tap a DEVICE key. (Optional, sets the default device)
    2. HOLD DOWN the SETUP button until the screen reads 'TIMED SEQ'.
    3. TAP the DOWN ARROW button twice, the screen will read 'CONFIGURE'.
    4. TAP the SELECT button, the screen will read 'THEATR SEL'.
    5. TAP the DOWN ARROW button five times, the screen will read 'KEY MOVER'.
    6. TAP the SELECT button, the screen will read 'FROM'.
    7. TAP the DEVICE button where you wish to take the function FROM. (Optional, will use the default established above if ommited)
    8. TAP the button you wish to move. The screen will read 'TO'.
    9. TAP the DEVICE button where you want to use the function. (Optional, will use the default established above if ommited)
    10. TAP the button you want to move the function TO, the screen will go back to the main display.

    To put the function on a shifted key, simply press SETUP before the last step above. Then, to access the function use the SETUP button instead of the SHIFT button.

     Back to Table of Contents

  27. Assigning Advanced Codes
  28. This feature allows you to duplicate functions from your original remote by programming the advanced code for that function onto a key on the remote. Sometimes advanced codes exist for functions that were not on the original remote, including discrete codes for 'Power On' and 'Power Off' that are especially useful when creating macro's to turn all of your equipment on or off.

    To test an advanced code before you program it to a button, simply press SETUP followed by the 3 digit code and the remote should issue the function.

    If you wish to use more than one function on a single button, you will need to use the "un-official" shift button (ie, the SETUP button) rather than the actual SHIFT button.

    1. Find the 3-digit advanced code for the original function of your remote. (Click here for advanced codes).
    2. Tap the DEVICE key. (Optional, sets the default device)
    3. HOLD DOWN the SETUP button until the screen reads 'TIMED SEQ'.
    4. TAP the DOWN ARROW button twice, the screen will read 'CONFIGURE'.
    5. TAP the SELECT button, the screen will read 'THEATR SEL'.
    6. TAP the DOWN ARROW button five times, the screen will read 'KEY MOVER'.
    7. TAP the SELECT button, the screen will read 'FROM'.
    8. TAP the DEVICE button where you wish to take the advanced code FROM. (Optional, will use the default established above if ommited)
    9. TAP the SETUP button and enter the 3-digit Advanced Code. The screen will read TO.
    10. TAP the DEVICE button where you want to use the advanced code. (Optional, will use the default established above if ommited)
    11. TAP the button you want to use the advanced code, the screen will go back to the main display.

    To put the function on a shifted key, simply press SETUP before the last step above. Then, to access the function use the SETUP button instead of the SHIFT button.

  29. Learning Functions
  30. The 1L, 2L, 3L, 4L, 5L and 6L keys can be used to customize those functions that are unique to your home entertainment needs. For example, the Producer does not offer Tracking up or down for a vcr. However, with the learning feature, you can add these as well as many other functions to the Producer.

    If you have the advanced codes for your original remote's functions, it is always a better idea to use them rather than "learn" the functions, as it uses up less memory and you can assign the function to almost any key on the remote.

    Note: Please have your original remote controls handy before performing learning.

    1. HOLD DOWN the SETUP button until the screen on the remote reads 'TIMED SEQ' - release.
    2. TAP the DOWN ARROW button twice, the screen will read 'CONFIGUE'.
    3. TAP the SELECT button once - the screen will read 'THEATR SEL'.
    4. TAP the DOWN UP button twice, the screen will read 'IR LEARNER'.
    5. TAP the SELECT button once - the screen will read 'IR LEARN'.
    6. TAP the SELECT button once.
    7. TAP the DEVICE key (TV, VCR, etc) which will hold the learned function.

      Note: Steps 8 through 10 need to be completed within 10 seconds. Please read the next three steps before proceeding.

    8. TAP the L key (1 - 6) key where you want to assign a component's feature. The Producer's red light will flash rapidly.
    9. Place your original remote control about 2 inches apart (nose-to-nose) from the Producer.
    10. On your original remote control, press and hold the key (feature) you want learned until the red light on the Producer blinks twice and the display will read 'SUCCESS'. If the red light on the Producer does not blink twice or the display reads 'ERROR', stop and repeat steps 9 and 10.

      Note: You can now repeat steps 6 through 10 to learn additional functions on the other L (1-6) keys and in different modes, or:

    11. Once the Producer has learned all the desired functions, press and release Esc to exit out of learning mode.
    12. To test a new feature, press and release a desired device key, followed by the L (1 - 6) key where a corresponding feature was learned.

    Note: If the Producer has trouble learning a feature, try moving your original remote control to the left or right during the learning process. The position of the IR LED transmitter on your original remote control may be offset.

  50. Operating Your RF/IR 'Command Center'
  51. This remote comes with an RF/IR Command Center which receives Radio Frequency (RF) signals from the remote and converts them into Infrared (IR) signals to allow you to operate your equipment at a greater distance within your home.

    To set up the Command Center:

    1. Find a location approximately 8 feet in front of your infra red components.
      The location should have access to both your equipment (line-of-sight) and an outlet to plug in your Command Center.
    2. Plug in the Command Center's power cord and raise the telescoping antenna.
    3. Position the Command Center so the black IR lens is aimed at your components.
    4. Test the Command Center by pressing the POWER button on the Home Producer 8. Your components should operate from another room in your home.

    NOTE:The Home Producer 8 transmits both an IR and an RF signal simultaneously. If you are in the same room as your equipment, unplug the Command Center so your equipment is not receiving two signals (from the remote and the box) which would make for erratic operation.

    IR Transmitter Cord

    The 'Command Center' also includes an additional IR signal transmitter cord for use with a component that cannot be in line-of-site with the 'Command Center'.

    1. Plug the 4ft. IR signal transmitter cord into the back of the 'Command Center'.
    2. Run the IR signal transmitter cord to the component that is not in line-of-site of the 'Command Center'.
    3. Using the double-sided tape, attach the IR signal transmitter so that the LED is over, or next to the IR sensor of your component.
    4. Test the 'Home Producer 8' remote . The Command Center will convert the RF signal from the 'Home Producer 8' into an IR signal and transmit that signal to your component through the IR signal transmitter cord.

    Adjustments You Can Make To Increase The Range Of The Remote

    1. Angle the antenna toward the room the room from which the Producer 8 signal is being sent.
    2. Do not position the 'Command Center' with metal between it and the Home Producer 8 remote (such as heat/AC ducts).
    3. Be sure to aim the Producer 8 toward the room where the 'Command Center' is located.
    4. Make sure the batteries inside the Producer 8 are new alkaline batteries (not rechargeable).
    5. Make sure the range of the Producer 8 is not being affected by radio frequency transmissions or high voltage electrical current.

    The 'Up to 100 feet' noted on the packaging is a factory tested distance in an environment void of wall, metal, or radio frequency interference. It was 100 ft. line-of-site.

  54. Fixing Worn Out Buttons:
  55. If a button stops working due to over use, it is possible to fix it. There is a product that you can get from most auto part stores made by Loctite called "Quick Grid Rear Window Defogger Repair Kit".
