PS3IR-PRO with Marantz 9500 touch screen remote
« on: June 23, 2008, 09:36:09 PM »
Is the PS3IR-Pro compatible with the Marantz 9500? I know nothing about remotes, PS3's or adapters, I use an install guy and he advised me to purchase an IR to bluetooth converter and advised me that NYKO makes one. When researching I found out that the NYKO converter does not turn the PS3 on or off, so I am looking at the PS3IR-PRO. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I see no reason that the Marantz could not work well with the PS3IR-Pro.  I would talk to your installer and ask him if he can program the Marantz 9500 to control a PlayStation 2.  If he can do that, then he can use the PS3IR-Pro to control the PlayStation 3.  The PS3IR-Pro is designed to respond to the PlayStation 2 infrared commands, and translate them into the corresponding PlayStation 3 bluetooth commands.

Most of the commands correspond directly with their PS2 counterpart.  For example the Play command on the PS2 remote maps directly to the Play command for the PS3, the Stop command on the PS2 maps to the Stop command for PS3, etc.  The only ones I know that do not map directly across are the color buttons for the PS3.  I believe they are mapped as folows, but Mike or someone else would need to confirm this for you.

Playstation 2 Command -- PlayStation 3 Command

Shuffle -- Red
Program -- Green
Repeat -- Blue
Repeat A-B -- Yellow
For help setting up your Harmony remote feel free to send me a PM. 

Include your model of remote, inputs settings for your TV, AV Receiver, etc., and any other setup requests.  I will also need your Harmony Login name and password (I recommend changing your password temporarily to 12345).

The Marantz 9500 is the same as the Philips TSU-7000. Just go to www.remotecentral.com and get the codes you need and load them in to your remote. Or, get the excel file on this site and load the codes manually. It is easy if the installer knows what he is doing.
