PS3IR-PRO / Re: Can't pair with a new PS3
« Last post by lrowell2131 on October 08, 2011, 12:38:20 PM »
At this point I think I want to ask for the unit to be returned to us for servicing.  The IR-PRO has a lifetime warranty so we will either repair it or replace it.  Use the Round Rock address found on the website under the "contact us" link.  I will update the unit to the latest level and fully test it.

Be sure to include a correct mailing address...

PS3IR-PRO / Re: Can't pair with a new PS3
« Last post by cpeds on October 08, 2011, 12:06:48 PM »
Thanks for the reply.  I first tried just pressing the 0, but that didn't work.  Then I read somewhere that someone had gotten it to work holding the 0, but that didn't work for me either.

I'm using the same USB cable and power source that I have been using for years.  I'm using the same remote.  Unfortunately, I don't have a Sony remote, so I can't test that.

The PS3IR-PRO supports the "old" PS3 and the new PS3 "slim".  The pairing procedure you describe is accurate except for a minor detail.  You only have to press the digit "0" once.  Holding the key down is not required.  I have not tried the procedure holding the key so I can't say for sure that is causing the problem.  If you happen to own a Sony BT remote, you could pair that remote (to verify the pairing procedure is operating properly) and then repeat the PS3IR-PRO pairing. 

There are no indicators on the IR-PRO to verify that the device is powered up.  Verify that the USB is plugged into a port that is powered (NOT a PS3 port).  You described the procedure correctly:
1) Navigate to the PS3 "Register BD Remote" screen.
2) Unplug and replug the IR-PRO power.
3) Press the digit "0" on the remote (pointing at the IR-PRO) within 10 seconds.  Registration usually takes < 30 seconds.

I believe if the PRO is registered to that PS3 then you will so no changes in the "register" screen - but in that case, your remote should operate the PS3 through the PRO.

A little more information...just in case it matters...  My old PS3 was one of the old thick ones, my new PS3 is much thinner.
PS3IR-PRO / Can't pair with a new PS3
« Last post by cpeds on October 08, 2011, 09:49:10 AM »
I have had my PS3IR-PRO working for years.  Recently my PS3 died and I had to get a new one.  I can't get the PS3IR-PRO to pair with the PS3.  I go to the screen that tells me to press both the START and END buttons, plug the PS3IR-PRO into the same USB cable I have always used, and press and hold the 0 button on the same remote I've always used.  Nothing happens.  The screen remains the same.  When I exit that screen with the game controller, the remote is still not working.  Does anyone have any suggestions?
PS3IRX1 / URC-WR7 issues with adapter
« Last post by yragha on October 07, 2011, 03:30:14 PM »

I've tried everything I know of.  I've looked at your instructions, I've looked at the universal remote control instructions.  The WR7 instructions state:

link to my remote from

1.  turn on device you want to control
2. press component button and select buttons at same time
3. enter three digit code, I ENTER 414
*if you punched in the correct code, your device will turn off --however we know this is not possible
4. once you've entered the correct code and the component has turned off, press the power on button
5. if all buttons are now working, press the component button once more to save the code

All I'm getting is the 414 works for left and right, but nothing else and I can't get the code to save.

Any help you or any users of this remote could provide would be helpful.

Yes, it did.  We have a new front panel that is infra-red transparent.  Please send a message to regarding the need for a new front panel.  We'll ship it for free if you are located in the United States.

PS3IR-PRO / New Case
« Last post by Anderzander on August 14, 2011, 02:22:46 AM »
Its way back now, but when I bought the PS3IR-PRO the enclosed paperwork stated a new case would be produced where the IR receive wouldn't be recessed as much - giving a wider signal field....

Did this ever happen?
PS3IR-1000 / Re: macro question
« Last post by rdenghel on July 26, 2011, 09:08:45 PM »
Congratulations on your awesome results!

Our product is designed to be a remote adapter, not a controller.  As such, it can only send one command at a time to the PS3.

PS3IR-1000 / Re: Cannot get power off to work
« Last post by buyitjody on July 25, 2011, 04:11:02 PM »
I thought I would post my results in case someone else ever encounters this same issue.  Just to give background...
I had an earlier version of a schmartz controller.  I had a URC remote (MX-800) that started having problems with buttons, so I needed to replace it.  It did have all the PS3 stuff programmed.  I replaced with identical remote that was their new model, URC MX-850.  I put all the old programming of the MX-800 into my MX-850.  I then decided to upgrade my schmartz device to the PS3IR-1000.  When I received it, I wanted to make sure I had all the capabilities available for a remote for the PS3, so I followed the directions for the URC remote.  However, I could not find the code 648 for the PS3 as stated by schmatrz (and as you can see in one of the above posts, they did verify with URC that it was still the code).  I wrote URC, but never heard back from them.  My URC MX-850 programming software does say it is updated to the most current version, yet there is still no 648 code available.  So, I just kept the old programming, but found the "off" no longer worked after I got the PS3IR-1000.

In the meantime, the 'On' stopped working.  Hmmmm...what to do.  I did try to 'teach' my remote with the PS3IR-1000 virtual remote, but that did not work.

Today I sat down to see if I could do the teaching again since URC was not responding to my email.  This time, I plugged the PS3IR-1000 into my computer and on the utility software for it, I changed the Power Sensing to "Enabled" since I was going to have the device plugged into my PS3 appropriately.  I then proceeded to teach both the ON and OFF button on my URC MX-850 with the virtual remote of the PS3IR-1000.  This time they took!!  I then downloaded the newly learned buttons to my URC remote and crossed my fingers that it would actually work.  I reattached the PS3IR-1000 to the USB plug and the USB sensing cable that goes to my PS3.  Low and behold, when I pressed the ON button for the PS3 on my URC remote, it came on!!!  I then pressed the OFF button for the PS3 on my URC remote, and it worked, too!!!

I don't know if changing the power sensing to 'enabled' made the difference or what, but that seemed to be the case for my situation.

I'm still baffled as to why I cannot find the 648 code in the URC software.  There is a PS3 option, but the code is 554 and does not have a lot of the functions in the menus for the PS3 (like 'eject' or the color buttons).  I'll still poke around to see if I can find it, but it just doesn't seem to be there for me.  So odd!!  For now, the major issue of 'on' and 'off' are now fixed through teaching my remote.
