Need Remote Code for Sony Blu Ray DVD Model BDP-S480

Been trying to program my AT&T Uverse remote to operate my Sony BDP-S480 Blu Ray DVD player.  Have not been able to find proper code. Used all codes listed in new and old AT&T remote guides as well as all of the codes listed on AT&Ts Uverse Help, Program Remote from my TV.  Please advise if you think you can help or have a code that worked.  Thanks

I think the first thing we need to know is do you have a silver remote or a black remote.

Then which codes have you tried?

Then I can tell addl codes (maybe) & how to do a search method.

If we cannot get the u-verse remote to work, You can get a Logitech Harmony for as little as $20.

At Radio Shack - model 200 - $20 Model 300 - $30 - Model 600 $30 If still on sale.

More models - 650, 700, etc. more features, more expensive, search for deals. Works great - no stinking codes.

Thanks. Aprreciate your time.  Tried 'em all.  None work.  Maybe there is some sort of protection on blu-ray player that needs to be turned off. Looked for anything like that but but did not find.   Frustrating.

YW, Since you are a glutton for punishment try the black remote with auto search -
Press DVD & enter together (not OK button)
use ff to step through codes to try to turn BR on. If you find a code you can try other buttons, but push enter to save the code. Leave time between pushes for the device to react.

Then go get a Harmony. You will love it.

Re: Need Remote Code for Sony Blu Ray DVD Model BDP-S480

Did you try 2484 and I didn't see it listed previously?

 

Here's an online copy of the "Operating Instructions" manual for the BDP-S480/S580/BX58 models.

 

http://www.docs.sony.com/release/BDPS480_580_BX58.pdf

 

You may want to double check your "Setup" settings to make sure there isn't a "No Security" setting you can switch to while entering codes. But this probably has to do with the wireless networking only the S580 and BX58 models are capable of rather than preventing codes from being entered.

 

If nothing else you can download the manual to your computer in case you lose/misplace the hard copy.

 

Unfortunately Sony eSupport (esupport.sony.com) does not offer codes for 3rd party remotes like U-verse.

 

Good luck.

Re: Need Remote Code for Sony Blu Ray DVD Model BDP-S480

I had found your post the other day and had already tried the 2484 code too. No luck. Very disappointing.  It certainly appears that Sony did this purposely.  Haven't tried Uverse support yet, but I doubt that will help.   Thanks for responding and posting the manual.

Re: Need Remote Code for Sony Blu Ray DVD Model BDP-S480

You're welcome and sorry that code didn't work. That's a 3D Blu-Ray player is it not? At first I thought it was a brand new model and maybe it is. But if they have a manual that covers 3 different models I would think it's been out for a little while.

 

Sometimes U-verse is slow to come up with codes for the newer models/devices. Afraid if you called technical support they may just tell you to try the same codes you've already tried. But maybe sometime when you're bored give them a call since they're open 24/7. Don't go into a chat or they will give you the exact same codes you've already tried.

 

Good luck and check this thread once in a while in case we find a code which may work.

I had the same problem. For the black remote try 2484.

Re: Need Remote Code for Sony Blu Ray DVD Model BDP-S480

The code 2484 does work. But the s580 3d dvd player has to allow render access control, under the network settings. Hope this helps.

Re: Need Remote Code for Sony Blu Ray DVD Model BDP-S480

ashlock93 - The Sony BDP-S580 is in the Logitech Harmony library. So, I would expect it to fully support all functions of the Sony remote. Should it not support a specific function, it can learn it from the Sony remote.

I have recommended to many people that were unable to find codes to support their devices with the U-verse remote that they get a Logitech Harmony remote.
 
Many of those people feel they do not want to, or should not have to, spend their own money for a remote.
 
Others, have a very complex setup and are willing to spend their money to maximize their viewing experience.

The U-verse remote is effective for some subset of basic control functions on the most popular equipment, The Harmony provides full control of complex setups across a broader range of equipment.

Until sometime in 2011 the Harmony only offered expensive models (over $100). In 2011 they introduced the model 300 ($30) followed by the model 200 ($20). These only support one activity (Not many for a Harmony, but same as U-verse) - Watch TV.
 
This writeup shows that, even though the basic descriptions sound the same, there are functional advantages to the Harmony. The question is - Is it worth spending $$ for the Harmony.

Basic Similarity (Logitech Harmony Model 300 vs. U-verse remote) -
 
Both can control four devices (STB, TV, DVD, Aux) under one activity - Watch TV.

Logitech Harmony Model 300 advantages -
 
Must be able to do something no other remote can do to convince you to spend $30 to buy it so Logitech can make a profit.
 
Monster library of supported devices built on budget for expensive remotes (amazing how libraries grow over the years).

You can predetermine support of make & model via web site (http://myremotesetup.com/EasyZapper/New/Main.asp?WebProcessAction=Start&ReturnUrl=%2FEasyZapper%2F%2...

Since device support is defined in detail, a Logitech customer service rep (CSR) can help with any problems. When anything new comes out it can be added to your existing remote via download.
 
To program - Enter device make model in computer  based wizard. When device is supported, all functions are supported. IR signals can be learned from device remote.
 
IR/function/button  map - You can map any button to any function. You can pick buttons based on your preference, instead of someone else's. Logitech can add any new IR code format to function mapping via download. CSR can download changes that affect only you,
 
Watch TV button - Turns on/off programmed devices. Sets correct input. Ability to sequence devices and introduce delay between devices.
 
Change from Watch TV mode to individual device control with one button push and vice-versa. Same volume/mute buttons will affect different devices (STB, TV, HT) depending on device selected and the one user selected for the Watch TV activity. Note that the U-verse phantom mute can be un-muted with four logical button pushes - device mode, STB, mute, return to watch TV mode.

Supports some functions not available on standard remote - e.g. direct change of TV input - Instead of menu-navigate-select, Have a single button for HDMI 1 & another for HDMI2 - change inputs with one button push.
 
Able to buy more advanced remotes for more money - Each step up adds more devices, more activities(e.g. Watch OTA, Watch DVD, Watch TV with HT sound), more display (LCD screen) of functions & recharge-ablity .

Multiple activities appears to be a concept unique to the Logitech Harmony. It allows the same buttons to be programmed to different sets of inputs/functions/devices based on what the viewer is watching (i.e. an activity). The button map is unique to the activity. It can be as similar or different between activities/devices as you need it to be. Each activity has its own start up sequence to power up the selected devices & set inputs needed for continuity. It is especially valuable for complex setups and/or people with only basic knowledge of the operation of the remote.
 
*****************************************************************************************************

U-verse remote limitations -
 
U-verse  remote is provided free to watch U-verse TV. Support for some functions on some other devices is included so that it can be called "universal". But there is no business driver to spend money to assure full support of all functions on all possible devices .
 
Limited library of supported devices. Vague lists by type/mfgr. No model detail. No definitive/comprehensive list of codes. No "not supported" statement. If support is not accomplished, there is no way to find out if it should be supported until you find that the remote works for you. Since device support is not defined in detail, customer service rep cannot help with problems.
 
To program- Enter an arbitrary code that may be difficult (or impossible) to determine or step through every possible entry using the search method. Possibly finding some partially supported sets along the way.  No IR learning.
 
IR/function/button  map - Button/IR map cannot change (need new physical remote). IR/function map can only change if U-verse globally changes STB software. No ability to provide individual tuning.
 
Watch TV (ATT/power) -  Turns on/off programmed devices. Does not set input. Devices can be sequenced but cannot introduce delay. sequence program - att/ok-977-mode buttons pressed in desired sequence- enter.
 
Default mode of operation is Watch TV (Channel change on STB, Volume on TV, Power up STB/TV). To vary operation requires reprogramming with more arbitrary codes applied to individual functions. No clear distinction between Watch TV and individual device control (i.e. It is difficult to change operation between Watch TV and controlling individual devices by programming with codes.)

To clear phantom mute - att/ok - 955 - att - enter - mute - att/ok - 955 - tv - enter. 12 button pushes, where two are two finger. If you can remember how to do it.
 
Point anywhere remote is the only extra cost upgrade - provides RF (with STB pairing) and learning IR.

Re: Need Remote Code for Sony Blu Ray DVD Model BDP-S480

For this Blu Ray you do not need a code to operate it with your AT&T remote as long as it is connected to your TV with an HDMI cable. Under system settings/control for HDMI select On. As long as you have the TV programmed into your remote properly and this selected on, your AT&T remote will control the Blu Ray when the TV mode is selected on the remote. The only function that will not work is the power on.  The power off however will work when you are done.

Re: Need Remote Code for Sony Blu Ray DVD Model BDP-S480

But the 2484 code does normally work as well.
