Using Discrete Codes

Post by DemoPad » Thu Jul 05, 2012 4:22 pm

What Are Discrete Codes?

Discrete codes are IR codes that instead of having a direct physical button perform only a single (discrete) function. An example of this would be an IR code which ONLY turns on a TV. Unlike a normal power IR code which will turn on a TV if it is off or turn it off if it is on. These are useful if you want to always make sure that all TV's are off and know that you aren't accidentally turning on.

Where can I get Discrete Codes?
Unlike normal IR codes these codes cannot be learned from a remote control and usually need to be taken straight from the manufacturer. Fortunately, there exists a fairly large database of codes can be found at Remote Central:

If the code you are looking for cannot be found here try contacting us or usually some extensive Googling will get a good result.
