I figured out how to change inputs on JVC TV's more effectively
 
Hey ya'll. One of the biggest digs on the JVC big screen HD-ILA TV's has been the fact that the 3rd generation JVC remotes dont have individual buttons inputs for each of the inputs on the TV. Most people assume that you have to cycle through each input and this can take well over a minute.

When you want to go from Digital Input 2 back to Digital input 1, all you need to do is hit the "input" button and then quickly press the channel up button.

This will make the input go back to #1 instead of having to cycle through analog 1 through 4 and around to Digital 1.

its a HUGE timesaver!

Dude!

Nice find!

When programming remotes I always want discreet codes. Harmony has managed to get around them with their Smart State Technology, but it isn't perfect. FWIW you might want to check Remotecentral.com and see if you can find the discreet codes for this so you could enter them into a universal remote to ensure it works every time (really helps when someone other than yourself is using the theater). I would be surprised if JVC didn't have these for a newer model TV.

I have the JVC HD-ILA as well and this tip really helped. A lot of time saved by not having to cycle through all the inputs in order.

I gave up on the universal remote idea. Since I am the only one that uses my system it doesn't bother me. I experiement with a lot of different setups and connections, that it is quicker for me to just change what I need to manually than to spend time trying to program a universal remote.

I will admit, the Harmony 880 remote has been tempting on many occasions, but $160 just doesn't seem worth it right now. Having everything running through my Onkyo receiver makes life easy. All video and audio switching is done my receiver, making the macros of the Harmony not really useful. Especially with the extremely lengthy loading and powering times of the HD DVD player.
