Introduction

1.The Marantz RC5400

The RC5400 is designed to control most devices that understand infrared (IR) remote control signals. Its easy-to-use Touch Screen and its intuitive interface make it a perfect remote control for every user. The RC5400 is completely customizable and programmable. You can add devices and functions, re-label buttons, record macros and animate your macros. Although the RC5400 is pre-programmed for Marantz components, a vast collection of built-in tab guided panels with prearranged button art enables you to easily choose the perfect interface for any non-Marantz component. The RC5400 easily “learns” commands from the vast majority of manufacturers’ remote controls.

3.Operating a Device

You can operate the devices using two kinds of buttons;

Soft buttons - Virtual buttons on the Touch Screen.

Hard buttons - Seven buttons below the screen (HOME, Left and Right Function buttons are not included) and five to the right of the screen (Vol +/-, Ch Up/Down & Mute)

Using the Soft Buttons

By tapping the Soft buttons on the Touch Screen you send Infrared (IR) commands to the device you have selected.

The name of the device you are controlling is always displayed on the DEVICE OVERVIEW button.

Sending commands

IR commands are invisible. However, when you send a command, an animated icon appears in the INFO button at the UPPER TOOL BAR to show that a command is being sent.

Using the Hard Buttons

Hard buttons can be operated at any time, even without turning on the Touch Screen. They can change their function depending on which device is active (teach commands to the specific device).

For example:

Since VOLUME Up, VOLUME Down and MUTE are typically receiver/preamp commands in most home theaters, these direct access buttons have been pre-programmed to always operate a Marantz receiver/preamp as the default. Should you own another brand, see the programming instructions on page 28-29.

MENU, ENTER, EXIT, 4-Way Cursor Navigation, CHANNEL Up and CHANNEL Down are typically programmed to change with the device selected. So when you are operating your DVD player, you use them to navigate DVD menus and change chapters. While you are watching TV, the MENU buttons operate the TV menus and the CHANNEL buttons change channels.

Customizing your RC5400

1.Introduction

It is best to proceed with customizing in several stages.

The first stage is to teach all of your existing remote codes to the RC5400. The second stage is to practice using your home theater system with the RC5400. As you gain familiarity with your system, you’ll notice that many operations in a home theater require several steps. In the third stage of customization, you will record multiple step operations as either a “Macro” that you can play back with one button push or as a list of numbered steps recorded in a “Help List” device group.

In the next few pages you’ll find step by step guidelines on each of the three stages. When a more detailed explanation can be found in the Reference section, we’ve noted the page.

2.Cloning All Your Existing Remotes

1 Gather all of your remote controls in front of you.

2Play with all of the example devices. Compare the devices with your existing remote controls. Can you use any as templates for non-Marantz components?

3Use DELETE mode to delete all of the devices that you don’t use (see page 37).

4Use ADD mode to add the devices for each Marantz component (see page 35-36).

When you are prompted to add with or without RC codes, choose Create with RC codes .

5Use ADD mode to add a devices for each non-Marantz component (see page 36). Choose Create without RC codes .

6 Switch to LEARN Mode to evaluate the page layouts of the new

devices.

User Guide

16

Customizing your RC5400

7Switch back to DELETE mode and delete the device if it is not a good match to your component. Repeat steps 4 through 7 until all of your remote controls have matching devices.

8Switch to LABEL mode to relabel each device (see page 30-32).

9Switch to MOVE mode to re-order your devices, so that your Device Overview page is arranged the way you want (see page 39).

10 Switch to LABEL mode to relabel any buttons as needed to match your existing remote controls. Check all of your devices.

12 Switch to LEARN mode and teach the RC5400 all of your nonMarantz components’ RC Codes (see page 26-30).

13Switching back and forth between USE and LEARN modes, test all codes and reteach as necessary.

Note

Be very careful to NEVER delete the jump tabs; they can only

 

be restored with a Editor software using PC. (see page 46-47).

14Switch back to LEARN mode. Teach each Device the appropriate Preamp/Receiver Input (source switching) IR command (see page 28) as the Device Action.

Congratulations!

You have completed the first stage of customization. Take a well deserved break.

Customizing Your RC5400

3.Complex Operation? Macro or Help...

If your entire system is new to you, practice using the RC5400 manually for a few days before programming any macros. You’ll find that your home theater requires many operations that require multiple steps to do. You have to decide whether to use a:

Macro - The entire operation happens in an automated sequence when you touch one button.

Help List - The operation happens manually but is prompted by large sequentially numbered buttons with friendly labels on one sequence of pages linked together.

Some multiple step operations require you to make decisions before you proceed. An example is turning on a non-Marantz home theater system. Many components turn on and off with a single “Power” button. Before you press a “Power” button, the manufacturer expects you to look at the component to see whether it is on or off. If you want it on and it’s off, you press the “Power” button. If you forget to look, and it is already on, you will turn it off when you press the “Power” button. The Remote cannot “look” at your components to see if they are on or off. So, if you recorded a macro intended to power up a nonMarantz home theater, it wouldn’t be very reliable.

Here’s an example:

Your spouse goes out to the local video store and rents a video tape. When he/she gets home, they pop the tape in the VCR (most VCR’s automatically turn on when a tape is inserted). Your spouse touches the macro button you programmed to power up the system. The recorded sequence of “power” buttons is played back. Unfortunately, since the VCR was already on, it is now off and everything else is on. Your spouse sees no picture, assumes the macro didn’t work, so he/she touches the button again. This time, the macro turns the VCR on and every thing else off. Frustrating!

 

Marantz builds components that are “macro-friendly”. Instead of a

 

single “power” button, the remote controls have a discrete “On” and a

 

discrete “Off” button. With a Marantz system, you can record a Macro

 

that is very reliable from a series of “On” commands. Take a look at

 

the example ALL ON and ALL OFF macros preprogrammed in the

User Guide

default configuration.

 

 

18

Customizing Your RC5400

The problems don’t stop with powering up a system. Often, you will want to construct a macro to watch or listen to a specific source. This may require that both the Television and the Surround Receiver be set to new inputs. Some components have “discrete” commands to select sources (meaning the command will only have one effect on the components, like the CD input on most receivers). Other components have “toggle” commands (these are commands that require you to look at the component, evaluate its state and sometimes issue the command over and over again). An example of a “toggle” command is the Input or TV/VCR button found on many television remote controls. You have to look at the TV, decide that it is on the wrong input, then toggle or scroll through the inputs to select the one you want.

Evaluate each of the multiple step operations you would like to record as macros. If all of the commands in the process are “discrete,” the macro will work reliably. If even one command is a “toggle” command, you should program a help list for the operation instead of a macro.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Tip

 

Sometimes there is a reliable way to use toggle type commands in macros.

What you are looking for is an “anchor” command that will put your component

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

in a known state. Once it is in a known state, you can use toggle commands

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

in your macro.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

An example for Powering Up DVD Players:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Most DVD players will turn on when off when they receive a Play command.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Thus a discrete On command is two steps,

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

1)

DVD Play

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

2)

DVD Stop

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A discrete off command is constructed by:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

1)

DVD Play

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

2)

DVD Power

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

An example for Selecting Source on a TV:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Many televisions will return to a particular input with either a channel up or

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

down command or by selecting a particular channel.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Thus, to construct a macro that selects the EXT1 input:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

1)

Channel Up (selects the Antenna A input)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

2)

Input (toggles to the Antenna B input)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

3)

Input (toggles to the EXT 1 input)

5.Macro/Page Jump Capability

Macros allow you to send a sequence of commands, jumps, delays and beeps with up to 250 steps using one single touch.

Basically, you can assign any button as a macro button. However, it is recommended that you use the macro buttons in the reserved macro device since they are conveniently labeled with popular Macro titles. However any button can be reprogrammed to be a Macro.

In order to plan your macros, you should understand the capabilities as follows,

Any Button Perform Macros/Jumps

You can program a macro to be played back when a button is selected by pressing a button on a device page or Home page (see page 41).

You can program a macro to be played back when a device is selected by selecting the device via the Device Overview page

(see page 42).

Macros Perform Jumps to Any Device

The RC5400 has the unique capability of jumping to any device panel during a macro.

You can make any or all of the 250 steps a jump to any devices. This provides you with the opportunity to give some feedback to the end user while a macro is being played back.

For example: you can reveal the CD device panel to show the user that commands are being sent to the CD player, then jump to an A/V Amp panel to show the user that commands are being sent to the amp. (see page 41-42)

You can Add/Create a Status device (located in new devices in the division named OTHER) and custom label each panel to give the end user more specific feedback as to what the macro is doing. You can then program jumps to each Status panel to occur during the macro. (see page 33-34)

UserGuide

21

Customizing Your RC5400

You cannot jump to any Home page, Device Overview and Page Overview page. You are only allowed to jump to first page of each devices when programming with the RC5400 stand alone.

Macros Send Commands To Your System

You can make any or all of the 250 steps send a remote control command to your system. The step is actually just a recording of the location of any button on any device page. To record an RC command, you simply navigate to the panel and button you want, then touch it. Thus, all RC commands in a Macro must first be taught to a button location first (see page 40-42).

You can record a “Device Action” which is what the device button on the Device Overview page really does (see page 42).

Macros Can Contain Delay and Beep Between Steps

You can program a Delay/Beep as any or all of the 250 steps of a macro (see page 41).

You can adjust that delay in 1/10th of a second intervals between 0.1 and 10.0 seconds (see page 41).

UserGuide

Customizing Your RC5400

6.Programming Macros & Page Jumps

You will do all of your Macro/Jump programming within a screen that will appear after you press the Macro button on the Mode menupage. Before proceeding with programming, make sure that you understand how to move around in the MACRO mode and how to read the RC5400’s shorthand notation for each macro step (see page 40).

1Write a list of all of the actions in the operation you want to record.

2Play with all of the example Macro buttons in MACRO device. Are any of these examples adaptable to your purposes?

3Use DELETE mode to delete all of the macro devices that you don’t like (see page 38).

4Use ADD mode to add a new macro device empty of any programming from the device list (see page 35-36).

5Switch to LABEL mode to re-label your macro devices. (see page 32).

6Switch to MOVE mode to re-order your macro devices, so that the most commonly used Macro devices are near the top (see page 39).

7Switch to LABEL mode and navigate to the your new macro device. Relabel the macro buttons with an appropriate name. The buttons are large so try to imagine a descriptive name even if it requires a few words.

8 Switch to MACRO mode. Tap the Macro to button to proceed.

Note

If you like to create a macro to the Device button, tap the

 

Macro to device button instead of the Macro to button

 

button.

9Navigate to your new macro device and press your newly named macro button to enter the MACRO edit page.

The MACRO edit page will appears. If you had any previously programmed commands in this button, they will appear for you to edit.

10 Working from your written list, navigate to the desired device and page to program all of the steps in the Macro

(see page 41).

Commands - When you touch a button, you will record an RC command step (see page 41).

Jumps - When you select a device from the Device Overview while holding down the Left Function button (now labeled Jump ), you will record a page jump to the first page of that device (see page 42).

Device Action - When you select a device from the Device Overview while holding down the Right Function button (now labeled Action ), you will record a Device Action of that device (see page 42).

Delays - When you select a

Delay , use the + and - buttons

to set the amount of delay (see page 41).

Beeps - When you select a

Beep , you will record a beep (see

page 41).

 

Note

Use the Page + / - buttons, Device Overview or Page Overview

 

to navigate pages; the Tab buttons will work as a Jump. If you

 

accidentally record a Tab button as a macro step, it is better to

 

delete it.

11Once all steps have been programmed, test your macro by tapping the Test button on the page.

UserGuide

24

Customizing Your RC5400

12 Typically you will need to adjust the timing of the macro. Simply putting in lots of delays will make the macro work, but may make the macro unnecessarily long.

Try moving commands, so that a TV command alternates with another component command before another TV command is issued. To move a command, simply select it and use the and buttons to reposition it within the Macro page.

When a delay is added to the macro, the default timing is 0.5 seconds. If the macro works with a 0.5 second delay, try a smaller delay to shorten the macro.

When programming Channel number macros, use 0.1 second delays between different digits and 0.5 second delays between identical digits.

13 Once you are happy with the macro, press the Done button on the screen to save it.

14 Continue to program macros until you have recorded all that you plan.

Congratulations!

You are now a Home Theater Automator!

Learning IR command

 

 

You program the RC (Remote Control)

 

 

commands by transmitting

 

 

IR (infrared) signals from your

 

 

existing remote controls to the

 

 

RC5400’s learning eye.

 

 

To do this, place the RC5400 and

 

 

1 to 10 cm apart

 

the device’s remote control on a flat

(0.5 to 3.6 inches)

 

 

 

surface, 1 to 10cm (0.5 to 3.6 inches)

 

 

 

 

apart. With each new remote control,

 

 

you have to find the correct learning distance.

 

It is best to be systematic and teach all of the buttons from one remote control before proceeding to the next. Start with the remotes

close together; if you receive a Failed message, move them farther apart in one inch increments. Although rare, some component remotes require

a very large distance between the sending LED and the RC5400’s learning eye.

Test the first command from any new remote control to find the correct learning distance.

Once you have found the correct learning distance, do not change it for any other button on that particular remote control.

Most commands learn correctly when you press and hold them until the OK indicator appears. However, sometimes the RC5400 will say OK , yet the command will not operate the component properly. If this occurs, try re-teaching the command with a brief tap. After a short delay the OK indicator will appear. Test the code. If this improves operation, continue to use the tap technique for all other buttons on the remote. The only buttons that you MUST use the press and hold technique for are buttons that you will press and hold when you are operating the component (i.e. Volume Up/Down, Scan, etc.).

The following buttons can be programmed: Soft buttons (operation page buttons, device buttons) and Hard buttons.

Hard buttons can be programmed for a device specific command for a particular device on the remote (Programming locally).

Only via PC, hard buttons can be programmed with a grobal function for all devices.

When a command is taught to a hard button from a device page, it will only be issued when that device is active, even if a command has been programmed globally. Local learning overrides global programming.

For example: One could program the CH+ & CHbuttons as the Chapter +/- command when the DVD is active. Now, if you program the TV channel +/- globally (and any device other than the DVD is selected) the TV channel +/- commands will be issued.

Receivers are both A/V Amps and Tuners - Since you typically use the two sections of your Marantz receiver at different times, we have separated them into two devices. You will find the amp section in Amp and the Tuner section in Tuner.

The Marantz SR9300 Receiver is actually two templates: The SR9300 AMP template for all Preamp/Surround functions and the SR9300 Tuner template for all Radio functions.

All of the devices shown are Marantz model s # with the exception of the first division, called “Other.” Below the “Other” division are three device templates that are meant for other purposes.

STATUS - This template is used to provide status screens you can jump to during a macro. Five pages are created with the device name “Status.” If you add additional Status devices, they will be named Status2, Status3, Status4 and so on. Each page is named according to its numbered position (1/5, etc.), so that if you are editing a macro, you will know which panel you have jumped to.

Status panels help

HELP - This template is used to create a Help List that will help users through a multiple step process that cannot be reliably programmed as a macro. See page 18-20 for more information about help lists.

Help List panels are a good way to help casual users through a long operation with lots of steps.

DSS - Since Marantz does not make a DSS receiver, we included a template. Simply teach the RC5400 from your original remote.

TIP

It is often useful to have two almost identical devices for your

 

Television. The only difference between the two is one would

 

have the Vol+ and VolDirect Access buttons programmed

 

locally with the televisions internal volume + and - commands.

 

Label this device TV Only (for use late at night without Surround

 

Sound). The other TV device has no programming in its Direct

 

Access buttons; as a result, the surround receiver’s Vol+ and

 

Vol- (programmed globally on the Home panel) is issued when

 

the TV device is selected.

7.Using the RC5400 with Radio Frequency

Warning To use the Remote Control with Radio Frequency (RF) you need an Marantz RX-77 RF Extender.

This is an optional accessory for the RC5400.

By default, the RC5400 uses

infrared (IR) signals to operate devices. This means that you have to point the RC5400 s IR sending eye towards

the devices you re operating. IR signals

have an operating distance of approximately

IR signal

10 meters (33 feet).

You can choose to operate devices using Radio Frequency (RF)

signals instead of IR signals. RF signals can, unlike IR signals, go

through obstacles like furniture or walls.

 

 

The RF signals sent out by the

 

 

RC5400 are picked up by the RX-77

 

 

RF Extender. The RX-77 translates

 

 

the RF signals in IR signals and

RF signal

sends the IR signals to the

 

 

appropriate devices. Therefore, the

 

IR signal

RX-77 has to be placed near the

 

 

 

 

devices you re operating with the

 

 

RX-77

RX-77 s sending eye pointed to the device.

 

 

Your devices will always receive IR signals either directly from the

RC5400 or from the RX-77.

Changing the IR / RF Settings

All devices are set up by default to work with IR signals. To be able to operate one or more devices with RF signals, you have to change the RC5400 s IR/RF settings for those devices.

1Tap and hold the MODEicon in the LOWER TOOL BAR more than 3 seconds. Mode Menu page will appear.

2Tap the IR / RF button to switch to IR/RF Setting mode. The RC5400 displays the device list box.

UserGuide

44

Reference

3Select the device for which you want to change the IR / RF settings.

The IR / RF setting page appears. The reversed color button labeled IR indicates that the selected device is currently operated with IR signals.

4Tap RF button. The IR/RF settings for the selected device are

changed from IR to RF.

When you have several RX-77s to operate

devices, you have to assign the correct Extender ID to the selected device. Continue with Step 5.

-or-

When you have only one RX-77, you can accept the default settings for the Extender ID and the Channel. Skip to step 6.

Note

The ID on the RF Extender has to match the Extender ID on the

Remote Control.

5Press and buttons beside the Extendor ID label to change the Extender ID number.

The RC5400 offers 16 Extender IDs.

6Tap Done to save the IR/RF settings for the selected device or Press the

Right Function button labeled Cancel to return without changing the IR/RF settings for the selected device.

7Repeat instructions 1 to 3 for all devices

for which you want to change the IR/RF settings.

8Tap label to return to the Mode Menu page.

The RC5400 is configured to operate the devices you have set with RF signals.

9Return to USE mode by pressing the Left Function button labeled Exit and try out the devices for which you just changed the IR/RF settings.

Note

It is possible that a device does not respond properly when

 

operated with RF signals. In that case, you have to reconfigure the

 

Remote Control to operate the device with IR signals again.

User Guide

 

 

45

Reference

Choosing Another Channel

When you notice RF interference or unreliable operation you should try choosing another channel to operate your devices.

Note All devices you want to operate with RF signals use the same channel. If you choose another channel for one device, the Remote Control will automatically change the channel for all devices that work with RF signals.

1 Switch back to IR / RF mode. The Device list box will appear.

2Select a device that is set with RF signals. The IR / RF setting page appears.

3Tap the + and - buttons beside the Channel label to change the Channel number.

The RC5400 offers 4 RF Channels.

Note The Channel (CH) on the RF Extender has to match the Channel on the Remote Control.

4Tap the Done button to finish.

8. Software

Troubleshooting

Programming Problems

Hard buttons are not sending the correct commands

Check whether the button is programmed per device or globally (page 28). The MACRO mode is usefull to cinfirm the programmed commands for buttons (page 43).

Macros or Tab Style Jump buttons do not work

Make sure the RC5400’s IR sending eye is pointed towards the device the entire time the macro is being executed.

Insert delays to allow devices to start up properly (page 41).

Check that you have included greyed-out buttons in your macro.

Check that you haven’t reprogrammed the buttons. Macros do not store commands, they store button locations. If you reteach a button, the macro will execute the newly learned code, not the code that you taught to the original button.

The RC5400 won’t learn, edit, label or delete commands

Make sure your devices are positioned as shown on page 26. Avoid programming the RC5400 under bright fluorescent light, it might affect the infrared signals.

If the buttons in the Mode menu page do not respond, the configuration file might been protected to prevent unwanted changes. You cannot modify or delete commands for on the RC5400. the protection for the configulation file has to be released by using Wizz.it.

Make sure the button you want to edit has a border. Text frames cannot be programmed with commands.

The RC5400 won’t switch the modes

When the batteries are low, the RC5400 prevents you from switching to customizing modes so that no customization can get lost. Recharge the battery pack (page 5).

The RC5400 is low on memory

The RC5400 displays a message to clean up the memory. Please delete unneccesary devices, macros and learned

commands as many as posible manually.

 

Warning DO NOT REVERT the RC5400. When you revert the RC5400,

 

all customization which you made is lost permanently and the

User Guide

RC5400 goes back to the default configuration.

 

 

50

Troubleshooting

The TV goes blank or the input source changes

The Device Overview page item might be programmed to switch the input source. Select the device without issuing IR codes (page 8).

The configuration file is corrupted

When this very unlikely event occurs, you can use Wizz.it to upload a new configuration file. Taken into account that all your customized commands, devices, and macros will be lost and

you will have to reprogram your RC5400. The Rivert function on the third Setup page is also available to get the smaller size of the default configuration file.
