FYI - The MCP-18 remote does not have discrete button commands for selecting the various inputs. The following RS232 commands are available but NuForce has confirmed that there are no corresponding Pronto (IR) hex codes for these discrete input commands (“the current software doesn’t allow it”):
Sicd Change Source to CD
Sidvd Change Source to DVD
sibal Change Source to BAL
si7ch1-1 Change Source to 7.1CH-1
si7ch1-2 Change Source to 7.1CH-2
So with regards to inputs, it’s not possible to operate from a known state with an IR Remote but rather it requires scrolling up or down through the inputs
I hope that someday there will be an update…….
