Sky remote (8R) with Pioneer AV Receiver VSX-527K

Hi,

I've read a good thread here ... http://helpforum.sky.com/t5/Sky-HD/Sky-Remote-Rev-9-code-for-Pioneer-AV-receiver/td-p/422507 but i'm still not having any luck with the Pioneer AV receiver VSX-527K.  Does anyone know a working code for this unit and the fact my remote is only rev. 8R, will that make a difference? and if it does, how do I get a newer remote that will work?

 

Thanks,

Andrew

Hi Andrew+Warriner,

 

Welcome to the Help Forum and thank you for contacting us.

 

Can you confirm as well as checking out that particular thread, that you have seen the on-line tool for remote codes? This requires the necessary information to be input and does 'cater' for differing remote models and versions.

 

Please let me know if this has been of any help?

 

Regards,

[ Edited ]

Yes, correct, I tried the online tool first (which suggested 0039, 0788, 0198 which didn't work) so then I searched the forum.

Re: Sky remote (8R) with Pioneer AV Receiver VSX-527K

Hi Andrew+Warriner,

 

 

The codes that are available for a pioneer amp are:

 

0328, 1051, 0317, 0214, 1151, 1212, 1117, 1217, 1312, 1487, 0851, 1297, 1317, 1651, 2132, 1963 and 1851.

 

Please note that the codes in bold require the latest version of remote control, this is the SkyRev.9F. You can find the version of the control by looking on the stickers inside the battery compartment. 

 

To programme the remote:

  • Turn on AV amplifier.
  • Point remote control away from AV amplifier and press TV button.
  • Press and hold down the select and the 0 buttons until the red light at the top of the Sky Remote Control flashes twice.
  • Input first 4 digit code.
  • Point remote control at the amplifier.
  • Press the left arrow button on the remote control to try and switch the AV amplifier into standby.
  • If AV amplifier switches to standby then the other AV Amplifier functions should also work and the correct code has been selected.
  • If AV amplifier does not switch to standby, or all AV functions do not work correctly, then repeat the process using any other available codes for the brand.


If one of the codes supports your amp then some or all of the features below may be controlled by pressing tv then the following buttons:

 

RCU Button

AV Amplifier Function

What does this button do?

Left Navigation

Standby

Switches the unit onto Standby, or back out of standby.

Right Navigation

Mute

Mutes the sound from the AV amplifier.

Up Navigation

Volume Up

Switches the AV Amplifier volume up.

Down Navigation

Volume Down

Switches the AV Amplifier volume down.

Rewind

Prologic On/Off

This switches the Dolby ProLogic functionality on or off.

Fast Forward

Effects On/Off

This deals with amplifier generated effects such as Stadium, Disco etc.

Stop

Input Select

This will select each of the inputs into the AV Amplifier in turn.

Play

On widescreen tv Zoom

The Zoom function on a widescreen TV stretches a picture to fit as much of the screen as possible.

 

An additional option allows the Volume up, down and mute mode of the TV to be swapped with the Volume up, down and mute of the Amp. This means that in normal operation if the TV speakers are not connected and all sound is sourced via the Amp it will not be necessary to press the TV button first to adjust the sound of the Amp.

After changing this option volume up, down and mute for the Amp will be available in both Sky and TV mode on digibox, Sky+ and Sky+HD remote controls and the TV sound controls will be available on the up, down and right buttons when the remote is inn TV mode. Here is the procedure on how to swap the functions:

 

Setting the Sky remote control to swap the vol up, down and mute buttons.

1) Press 'Select' and '1' together and hold down until the LED on the remote control flashes twice.

The remote will now control the sound of the Amp when Volume up, down or mute are pressed and the TV sound if arrow up, down or right are pressed

 

**To reverse the setting and return to normal operation

2) Press 'Select' and '2' together and hold down until the LED on the remote control flashes twice.

 

Can you let me know how you get on?

 

Thanks,

Re: Sky remote (8R) with Pioneer AV Receiver VSX-527K

Hi Anne,

Thanks but this is the same text that was in the thread I quoted to you.  Since I only have a 8R revision remote and not 9F then I can only use half the codes (none of which work) and I guess I can't use the codes in bold without a 9F revision remote.  So how/where do I get a 9F remote which will hopefully work the latest codes?

 

Thanks,

Andrew

Hi Andrew+Warriner,

 

You can puchase a new remote control through our accessories website (although I cannot guarantee that a Rev9.F would be sent as we are not aware of what the stock are like). The only way you could get get this is to purchase this from an independent retailer?

 

Prior to purchase, do you know anyone with a Rev9.F remote control that you could borrow to try the codes out?

 

Thanks,

Hi SquishySaru2,

As this is your first post I would like to welcome you to the community :smileyhappy:

I just wanted to take a minute to thank you for letting Andrew know what code you have found that gives you full control. I hope that your feedback will help other customers who may be looking for a solution.

Thanks,
