Hello,

I have several questions regarding using a universal (Harmony) remote to control the Wireless Home Theater One Preamp Transmitter.

1. Is there a good profile for the remote loaded into the Harmony database?
2. Are there commands for going directly into a certain surround mode? Cycling through the modes seems inefficient (especially when the original remote has an enitre number keypad that isn’t used).

thanks,
dennis

Hello Dennis,

Sorry for the delay in my response, I’m still getting used to the new forum format and missed your post.

Unfortunately the codes for the Summit remote have not been published. I’ve tried to get the folks at Summit Semiconductor to make them available a couple of times and I have not been able to make any headway.

So for now the only way would be to manually learn in the main functions of the Summit remote into your Harmony remote. The MyZone feature will never be able to be transferred over because it uses the microphone on the front of the Summit remote.

No sorry, there are no commands to go to a specific surround mode. Personally I just let it auto-detect what is coming in, but if you want to get to a specific processing mode you’ll have to scroll.

Please let me know if I can help with anything else, thanks!

@Jason, thanks much for the reply. I have gonae ahead and manually programmed the remote (I have the original nearby for the MyZone feature, but my main listening postion doesn’t change on a daily (or monthly) basis, so I am not too cncerned about that missing from the Harmony.

You mentioned that you let the unit autoselect the listening mode. My unit doesn’t seem to autoselect, it seems to stay at what it was last set at, which might work fine if it recalled the last setting for a particular input (one input for movies and TV, and one for music), but it stays on whatever the last mode was regardless of the input (for instance, watch a movie from ATV3 in DolbySurround, then switch to music via optical input, it stays on Dolby instead of switching to stereo). Is there a setting I am missing? Any other suggestions?

thanks,
dennis

Dennis,

Hmmm that’s odd, it should always be in auto mode. When I go from a Blu-Ray to a CD it does change from the last mode to Stereo+ as the default. You might try doing a factory reset to see if that takes care of it, but I wonder if maybe the display is saying Dolby even though it is actually decoding in stereo. When you put a CD on are the surrounds and center producing sound?

Jason,

Not sure what is going on with the auto mode; I am using both optical (a Mac mini) and HDMI (ATV3) inputs–in either case, when I switch between a movie with surround and music in stereo (or the otherway) the box tends stay in the previous mode–so stereo music is mostly coming out of the center speaker, and dialogue is coming out of the towers with little nothing from the center speaker…. on a few occassions the auto mode has worked, but I cannot find a pattern as to when and why the auto mode select will work… I will try a factory reset and try report back…
