Executing a Series of Commands
— System Control Functions
• If you interrupt the procedure at any point
for over 2 minutes, the setting mode ends
and the series of commands will be
programmed to that point. In this case, clear
the programme (page 35) and start again
from Step 1 to set the entire programme from
the beginning. You cannot continue from
where you left off.
• If a SYSTEM CONTROL button or a Label
key has already "learned" a remote control
signal (page 49), "NG" flashes and you
cannot programme on this button. Clear the
learned contents first (page 51).
•If you change the component code number
(page 12) or programme a new signal by
learning (page 19) on a key or button that has
been programmed in the series of commands
of the System Control function, the new
signal will be transmitted when you press the
corresponding SYSTEM CONTROL button or
a Label key.
• During programming of a series of operating
commands, the DEL key is not displayed and
you cannot clear any operation step you have
programmed. If you have programmed an
incorrect operation by mistake, start again
from Step 1.
• If you try to programme more than 32 steps, the
System Control setting finishes, and the 32 steps
you have programmed are registered. If you
want to programme again, clear the programme
(page 35) and start again from Step 1.
• When programming a power-on command
for the System Control function, if you select
the Component Select button or the Label key
for which you programmed the Power-on
setting (page 43), the Power-on setting is also
available. So, the power of the selected
component turns off if the POWER1 key of
the component is programmed.
In this case, clear the Power-on setting, or do
not programme the POWER1 key of the
About the interval between
• You can change the interval between
operation steps (page 40).
• If you cannot receive signals successfully
during consecutive operation steps, programme
the interval between steps by pressing the
TIMER button between operation steps in Step
6 on page 33. This operation of programming an
interval is counted also as a step.
To change the display of the
component name on the Mode
When you programme a series of
operating commands, you can change the
display of the component name to the
most suitable name using up to 8
characters or digits.
After Step 3 (page 32), hold the Mode
Display key pressed for more than 2
seconds. Then follow the same procedure
as that for changing the name of the
Label key in "To change the display of
the Label key," Steps 2 - 5 on page 24.
If you press the CLEAR key, the Label
key returns to the previous display.
About the order of operation steps
• Some of the components may not accept
consecutive remote control signals. For
example, a TV generally does not react to
next signal right after the Power-on signal.
So, a series of commands such as TV Power-
on and input select may not work properly.
In this case, insert other signals like the
TV Power-on t VCR Power-on
t VCR play back t TV input select
• After the series of input commands is
executed, the Commander displays the
touch-keys of the component in the final step.
By programming an often-used component's
command as the final step, you can save the
step of pressing a Component Select button
or a Label key when you start operating that
component. (In the example on page 33, the
touch-keys of TV are displayed.)
• If a series of commands is programmed for
the Component Select button or the Label
keys (page 38), the display of that component
is shown after the programme is executed.
