IEEE 139 Devices and NetCommand® Control
See pages 30-31 for information regarding compatible IEEE 1394 devices and connection styles. The TV is not able to
control IEEE 1394 devices that use other types of control protocols. Incompatible digital audio, video and/or control
information will still be able to pass from one device through the TV to another device on the network. These incompatible
devices may not appear on the Device Selection menu or in the Review screen of the Edit NetCommand menu.
NetCommand Control of Digital Devices Using the "Learn" Feature.
Some IEEE 1394 devices such as cable boxes or satellite receivers will not have compatible digital control signals
or require the use of the device's own remote control. Some of these IEEE 1394 devices will not display on-screen
information through the IEEE 1394 connection and will require using an analog connection for on-screen displays. In
many cases, to control these digital devices, the Learning feature of NetCommand can be used.
Place an IR Emitter for NetCommand in front of the device's remote control sensor (see IR Emitters, page 32).
2. On the Name for 1394 Device screen (Figure 2, page 55) use ADJUST and ENTER to check mark the Analog
3. Select the device type on the IEEE 1394 Device Type screen (Figure 3, page 56) of SAT or similar tuning device
4. If desired, using the ADJUST buttons enter a custom Name on the Name screen (Figure 20, page 50).
5. At the Device screen, Select "Other" as a manufacturer and then highlight "Learn" and press Next (Figure 4, page
6. Follow the device learning instructions found on the screen(s) or in the Edit NetCommand section of Chapter 3.
The Connection screen (Figure 5, page 56) follows the learning screens. If analog connections are used, select the
correct inputs. If only digital connections are used, do not check the video or audio boxes.
8. Proceed with the Finish screen.
This will allow NetCommand to use the learned remote control signal to control these IEEE 1394 devices.
Note: When using the NetCommand learning feature for IEEE 1394 devices that do not have analog connections,
the GUIDE function will require pressing GUIDE twice. The first press of GUIDE will display the TV's digital channel
guide. The second press will display the program guide for the device if an IEEE 1394 Guide is available.
