I posted a coupld of questione in beta - but it was suggested that this might be a better place to ask.

I want to get my multi-room system hooked uo to control the SB2. To do this I would need to add an extra IR file to SlimServer.

I thought about doing this a while back - but gave up when I read about the SB2 firmware bug that stopped the JVC remote working.

With this resolved I wanted to have another go. I can't locate much documentation - there a little about adding a NAD command set - so I think I just need to add a new .ir files in the IR directory. This works and I can see the new file in the settings screen..

The catch is finding what IR codes to add to the file. I'd hoped that setting d_ir would trace out all the ir codes so I could just point my remote at the SB2 and read the log. I've tried this but don't get any traces except except from the slim remote.

All pointers welcome.

I fear if you don't get any code, it is not recognized by the SB. I do
have some remote controls that work, others that wouldn't. If you've got a
universal remote control, you might want to change it's mode. You should
be able to eg. program it to be used with a JVC CD transport. This might
work with the SB.

Sean gave me the key info in the beta forum.

The SB2 understand NEC codes - I switched the Systemline to send Pioneer codes and now I can see the codes in the log - and have the config working.

Thanks for the help. I'll post the .ir file when I have it tidy.
