2. Loading batteries

The life of the batteries used with the remote control unit is about 4 months with normal use. Also be sure to replace batteries earlier when you notice that they are getting weak.

(1) Remove the back cover.

3. Receiving the remote control codes

The RC-18SR can learn most of the remote control codes from various equipment, it learns the full word length of the code it is receiving. Due to the sensitivity of the receiving LED the RC-18SR may also “learn” noise from fluorescent lights, etc. which can quickly fill up the memory of the RC-18SR.

In order to maximize the memory capacity of the RC-18SR please pay close attention to the following:

(1)Aim the transmitting remote control at a direct line of sight to the RC-18SR remote receiver eye.

(2)Keep 2 inches between transmitting remote and the RC-18SR receiving eye.

SPEAKERS SETUP

 

 

sound stage as the action moves from side to side.

 

The home theater system you already have installed should function

 

provided that there are left, center and right front speakers, left and

 

right rear/surround speakers and a subwoofer. For best results we

 

recommend that all front speakers be of the same type, with identical

 

or similar driver units. This will deliver smooth pans across the front

 

Your center channel speaker is very important as over 80 % of the

 

dialog from a typical motion picture emanates from the center channel.

 

It should possess similar sonic characteristics to the main speakers.

 

Rear channel speakers need not be identical to the front channel

 

speakers, but they should be of high quality.

 

One of the benefits of both Dolby Digital (AC-3) and DTS is that

 

surround channels are discreat full range, while they were frequency

 

limited in earlier “Pro Logic’ type systems.

 

 

 

Bass effects are an important part of home theater. For optimal

 

enjoyment a subwoofer should be used as it is optimized for low

 

frequency reproduction. If you have full range front speakers,

 

however, they may be used in place of a subwoofer with proper

 

setting of theswitches in the menu system.

SETUP: Select “LOCKED” with or button in order to lock the contents of the SPKR SET UP MENU.

Then, when you want to change the contents of this setup, select “UNLOCKED”.

SPKR SIZE

This menu enters the information about which type of speakers will be used for each channel.

In turn, these settings will determine which speakers receive low frequency information.

For the purpose of establishing proper bass reproduction, use the LARGE settings if the speaker being used at any position is a traditional full-range loudspeaker that is capable of reproducing sound below 100 Hz and you are not using a subwoofer.

Use the SMALL setting for smaller, frequency-limited speakers that are not able to reproduce sounds below 100Hz and you are using a subwoofer. Low frequencies will be diverted from the speaker to the subwoofer.

Note that when “small” speakers are used it is advisable to install a separate subwoofer, especially if you wish to appreciate the full impact of a good home theater soundtrack.

If the Surround speakers or Center speaker will not be used, set NONE for each speaker. The NONE setting will send the audio for the surround channels or Center channel to the front left/right speakers.

FRONT -L/R : Select the type of front speakers with or button. CENTER : Select the type of center speaker with or button.

AMP GUIDE MUTE

M 0 C

z MODE (operating mode)

This button is used to change from normal operation to the learning mode, and is used when “learning” commands from other brands of A/V components. Each time this button is pressed (using a small pointed instrument, such as the tip of a paper clip) the mode changes as follows: LEARN →USE →NAME. As the mode changes, the LCD display will show which mode is currently selected.

x MACRO (for multiple step macro functions)

This button is used to memorize a series of functions. When this button is pressed, the RC-18SR changes to macro programming mode, and is ready to learn a sequence of remote control commands.

18

c CLONE

The RC-18SR has the ability to “replicate” itself, downloading all of its internal pre-programmed and user-programmed commands to another RC-18SR or RC2000MKII. This button is used when you wish to “teach” another RC-18SR or RC2000MKII all of the customized commands you’ve already programmed in this RC-18SR.

v POWER ON and OFF

These two buttons are used to turn the main component’s (amplifier or receiver) AC power on and off. We provide both ON and OFF commands so that your A/V system is remote compatible with external infrared controllers, such as in-wall key pads, and etc.

b SOURCE ON/OFF

This button is used to turn the AC power on and off to any of your A/V source components that have their own remote control turn-on and turn-off commands, such as TV, laser disc player, VCR, etc.

n MACRO 1-4

Each of these 4 buttons can be programmed with a “string” of commands, called a macro, to initiate a sequence of remote codes to achieve a particular result. For example, a macro button could be programmed to turn on the main system power, then turn on a particular source component (such as a laser disc player), then turn on the TV set, set the TV to AUX video input, and then adjust the surround processor to the home theater surround decoding mode, then activate the laser disc player’s PLAY function. This means that by pressing one macro button, you can achieve the same result as pushing up to 20 buttons in sequence.

m DIRECT

With today’s high performance A/V systems, it is not unusual for each component in your system to have dozens of specialized command functions. If we were to duplicate all of those commands for each component onto the RC-18SR key pad, we could easily exceed 300 buttons for an entire home theater system, which would result in either a huge key pad, or buttons of infinitesimal size. The DIRECT command buttons (4 on each side of the LCD display, 8 total) work with the PAGE buttons (4 pages for each source component) to provide up to 32 dedicated specialized functions for each of the 11 function input selectors. Each DIRECT function may also be provided with an alphanumeric function indicator visible in the LCD display. You may even change the displayed name of each function to another name, if you wish.

, PAGE

Used to select any 1 of the 4 pages of 8 functions for each DIRECT button, as explained above.

. FUNCTION

Press one of these buttons once or twice to select a particular source component. For example, to set the amplifier or receiver to the laser disc input, press the LD button twice within 2 seconds. Along with the source selection, special functions may become available (the DIRECT keys), as well as activating the transport function keys, so that you can now directly operate the laser disc player from the RC18SR. If you wish, you may even re-program the status indicators in the LCD window to reflect your own particular function name whenever that source (function) button is selected.

Here are the button names and their functions:

LD

:

Laser disc player

TV

:

Television

VCR1

:

Video cassette recorder

DSS/VCR2 :

Digital satellite decoder or second video cassette

 

 

recorder

AUX

:

Can be used for an auxiliary source component

TUNER

:

AM/FM tuner, or AM/FM tuner section of a receiver

CD

:

Compact disc player or changer

TAPE

:

Audio tape deck, or digital audio recorder

AMP

:

Amplifier or receiver control functions

DVD

:

Digital video disc player

CD-R/MD

:

CD-Recorder or mini disc player

Note:

Press a function selector button only once to select the LD player, etc. Remember, when you press a function selector button only once, the RC-18SR will not send out a remote control code to instruct the amplifier or receiver to change to that corresponding input, but the RC18SR keypad and DIRECT function commands will provide the selected component’s specialized remote control codes. Press a function selector button twice within 2 seconds to change the function of the amplifier or receiver.

For example, if you press the LD function button twice within 2 seconds, the amplifier or receiver’s input will immediately be switched to the laser disc input, and the keypad and DIRECT function commands for laser disc operation will be activated. Press the CD function button only once, the amplifier or receiver’s input will not switch to the CD input, however the RC-18SR keypad and DIRECT function commands for compact disc operation will be activated.

We have provided 11 popular function command selector buttons, based upon the typical input selections available with most quality A/ V amplifiers (or receivers) including popular Marantz models.

The function button DSS/VCR2 is a little different from the others, in that when you press this button, the RC-18SR will send out a command to the amplifier or receiver to switch to the DSS input, and then the RC-18SR keypad and DIRECT function commands will be configured for DSS (digital satellite system) control. We have included DSS commands within the RC-18SR’s pre-programmed memory for RCA brand DSS equipment. If you have another brand of DSS, you can “teach” the RC-18SR with the remote control codes of your equipment.

Ú0LCD window

The LCD window provides a wealth of information, including function selection name, DIRECT function names, learning and programming steps, as well as useful indicators for battery status, and other helpful indicators. The LCD window features back-lighting, making it easy to view when the room light is very low.

Ú1Volume up (+) and down (-)

Used to raise and lower the main system volume level. Note that these buttons are clearly the largest size, and are conveniently located and contoured for easy operation, even in low lighting.

Ú2Ten keypad

Like a telephone key pad, the ten number buttons (0-9) are used to enter numeric digits. They are useful for finding a specific track on a CD, or to tune a pre-set radio station, etc. The “0” button performs the same operation as the “CLEAR” button on the SR8000 main unit.

Ú3MEMO

This button is used to program your CD player’s track memory, or to enter a VCR recording program, and can be used to provide the MEMO function included with other components in your system.

Ú4CLEAR

This button is used to cancel certain memory or programming operations. It operates differently from the “CLEAR” button on the SR8000 main unit.

Ú5Transport control functions

These buttons provide transport commands for your source components, such as laser disc player, CD player, VCR, audio tape deck, etc., and are dependent on the function source selected. For example, when the RC-18SR is set to LD (laser disc) mode, the transport keys will operate the laser disc player’s PLAY, STOP, PAUSE, FAST FORWARD, FAST REVERSE, NEXT and PREVIOUS track functions. Change the RC-18SR function selector to VCR, and these keys will then operate the VCR’s transport command functions, etc.

similar equipment, to activate the on-screen programming guide,

 

used when changing channels, etc.

 

Ú9LIGHTING

 

Press this button to activate the back-lit LCD screen and back-lit keys

 

independently SETUP mode. A quick touch is all that is necessary.

 

The back-lighting will remain on for 3 seconds. If you wish, you can

 

even re-program the RC-18SR to shorten or lengthen the amount of

 

time the back-lighting is activated when this button is pressed.

 

Û0Channel up( ), down( )

 

Press this button to change the tuner, TV, DSS or VCR preset

 

channels to upward or downward.

 

Û1Transmitter window

 

Infrared signals will eminate from behind this window. Simply aim the

 

RC-18SR towards the component(s) you wish to control. You may

 

find that the RC-18SR works fine when placed on a coffee table

 

pointing towards your A/V system components.

 

Û2Receiving window

 

Used when learning commands from other remotes, this window is

 

placed at the bottom of the RC-18SR, so that the two remotes are

 

vertically oriented for easy transfer of remote control information.

 

Later in this guide we will show you which of the RC-18SR buttons can

 

be “taught” new commands from other components.

 

LIQUID CRYSTAL DISPLAY (LCD) WINDOW

 

Within this display, all operating messages (function name, mode

 

names, etc.) are shown. When a particular button is pressed (such

 

as a transport command, like PLAY), its status will be shown in the

 

display for 1 minute. The display will continue to show the source

 

function selected continuously, however.

 

a Function indication:

 

The selected source function is displayed, such as LD, TV, etc., up to

 

6 characters maximum.

 

b Status indication:

 

The selected status of the present page, or other items, is displayed,

 

up to 9 characters maximum.

 

c Direct commands:

 

8 DIRECT commands are available in 1 page, up to 4 characters

 

maximum.

d Battery indicator:

When the batteries are running low, this indicator will become visible. At this point, it will not be possible to learn any new remote codes, but normal remote control operation is still provided (including the use of any previously learned codes). At this point, you should consider changing the batteries soon. As time goes on, and the battery power diminishes further, this indicator will begin blinking. At this point, no remote commands will be transmitted. This is your signal to replace the batteries with fresh ones as soon as possible. Eventually, if you ignore the blinking battery indicator and do not install fresh batteries, then the batteries may eventually be totally exhausted, and the LCD display window will be completely blank. However, any previously learned commands and macros will not be erased from the microprocessor’s memory.

The RC-18SR is supplied with a full set of RC-5 remote control codes in permanent (non-volatile) memory. Even if the batteries are fully exhausted, the RC-5 codes (used for Marantz A/V components) and learned codes will never disappear.

We recommend that you use a quality brand of alkaline batteries, for best results and longest life. Newly available lithium “AA” batteries can even provide longer life than alkaline batteries, and are also recommended.

e Transmit indicator:

When a button is pressed, this indicator shows that an infrared code is being transmitted.

f USE indicator:

For normal operation, the USE indicator should be visible.

g LEARN indicator:

Visible when the RC-18SR is set to LEARN mode.

h NAME indicator:

Visible when the RC-18SR is in the learning mode, and function naming is being changed.

i PAGE or MACRO indicator:

This indicator usually functions in association with a PAGE button ,, but also functions as the MACRO indicator when a MACRO button n is pressed.

j indicator:

Visible when the RC-18SR is set to the beep function.

Installing the batteries:

The battery compartment is located on the rear panel. Please use only alkaline or lithium batteries, “AA” size. The RC-18SR requires four AA batteries. There are markings in the battery compartment to show you the proper battery orientation. If after installing the batteries, you cannot see any indication in the LCD window when a button is pressed, re-check to ensure that the batteries are properly positioned in the compartment.

RC-18SR BASIC OPERATION

USE Mode:

As supplied from the factory, the RC-18SR is already permanently programmed with many pre-set commands common to Marantz and Philips equipment, as well as other brands of components that utilize the Philips RC-5 remote control language.

1.If the RC-18SR is in another mode (LEARN, etc.), press the operation mode button z with the tip of a paper clip, until the USE indication appears.

2.Press one of the function buttons ., to change to another component’s commands such as LD (refer to Figure 1).

3.“LD” will be indicated within the LCD window, and the function codes will be set to operate the laser disc player. Press the function button again within 2 seconds and the amplifier or receiver’s input changes to laser disc.

4.Now you can operate the laser disc player. When a button is pressed, the symbol indicates that a remote code is being transmitted. Note that for a particular source component, not every button may have a command programmed for it. In that case, nothing would be indicated.

5.Using the DIRECT buttons D-1 through D-8 and PAGEs 1 through 4, up to 32 different specialized commands are available for each FUNCTION, up to a total of 352 specialized commands (32 direct commands times 11 functions). Note that for any particular function selector, not all 32 direct commands may be provided and/or named as supplied from the factory.

6.For example, the RC-18SR is supplied from the factory with 3

pages of DIRECT commands for the LD (laser disc) function. To change pages, press the page direction or buttons ,:

Page 1: MODE: Side A/B laser disc playback functions

Page 2: L D: Specialized laser disc functions

Page 3: R E C: Recording from laser disc to VCR functions

At this point, you may wish to put this guide aside temporarily, and begin using the RC-18SR with your A/V system. If you already have any Marantz components, or Philips and/or other brands of components that use the RC-5 remote control language, you can begin controlling those components with the RC-18SR right away. Take some time to become comfortable with the operation of the RC-18SR. We think that its intuitive key pad layout and easy to read LCD window will permit you to quickly become familiar with its operation.

If you do not have any Marantz or other brands of components that use the Philips RC-5 remote control language, then you may wish to proceed to the next section, which will describe the steps necessary to “teach” your RC-18SR remote codes from other components you may have in your system.

LEARN mode:

The RC-18SR has the ability to learn remote codes for just about any component in your A/V system. If the original component was supplied with an infrared remote control, its commands can be learned by the RC-18SR. If you have another brand of laser disc player, for example, you can program the RC-18SR with its codes.

For example, we’ll show you how to “teach” the RC-18SR commands from another brand of laser disc player.

1.Using a sharp point (such as the tip of a paper clip), press the operation MODE button z. Each time you press the button, the mode within the LCD display, the LEARN indicator will begin blinking.

2.Place the laser disc player’s supplied infrared remote controller so that its transmitter window (usually at the top) is facing the receiving infrared sensor window Û2of the RC-18SR (at the bottom), about 5 cm (2 inches) apart.

3.

Press the LD function button on the RC-18SR.

4.

Press the play button Ú5on the RC-18SR.

 

5.

Press and hold the corresponding PLAY button on the laser disc

 

 

player’s remote transmitter until the “OK” indicator appears in the

 

 

RC-18SR LCD window (see Figure 2) or the beep sounds emit (if

 

 

the beep sound function is set ).

If the “AGAIN” indicator appears in the RC-18SR LCD window, it means that for some reason the command was not properly learned. Repeat steps 3, 4 and 5 above.

In the unlikely event that an infrared command cannot be learned by the RC-18SR, “NG” (no good) will appear in the LCD window, meaning that the command is not “learnable”. The RC-18SR has been tested for compatibility with a very wide range of infrared remote control frequencies and data word lengths, but in some very rare instances, it may not be possible to learn a particular remote control command.

Continue to “teach” the RC-18SR the rest of the source transmitter’s transport function commands, such as STOP,

PAUSE, NEXT, PREVIOUS, FAST FORWARD and REWIND, by repeating steps 3, 4 and 5 above.

6.Proceed to learn the numeric “10 keys” from the source transmitter to the RC-18SR’s 10 key numeric pad Ú2by repeating steps 3, 4 and 5 above.

7.For each additional function, such as TV, VCR, etc., repeat steps 3, 4 and 5 above. During the LEARN operation, if any button is not pressed within 1 minute, the RC-18SR will revert back to the previous operating mode.

n To make a function button learn a code, switch the input function then press the button again.

8.After memorizing all desired remote codes, press the operation mode button z with the tip of a paper clip, and select the USE mode. The LCD display window will continue to display the USE indicator, and all of the newly memorized codes will be available (see Figure 3).

Programming the DIRECT mode buttons m:

The following example will show how to memorize the SIDE-A function command of another brand of laser disc player into the D1 direct button.

1.Using a sharp point (such as the tip of a paper clip), press the operation MODE button z to switch the RC-18SR to LEARN mode.

2.Place the laser disc player’s supplied infrared remote controller so that its transmitter window is facing the receiving infrared sensor window Û2of the RC-18SR about 5 cm (2 inches) apart.

3.Press the LD function button . on the RC-18SR.

4. Using the direct function page keys and ,, set the direct function to Page 1. Press the D-1 button m on the RC-18SR.

21

ENGLISH

5. Press and hold the corresponding SIDE-A button on the laser

disc player’s remote transmitter until the head of name blinks in

the RC-18SR LCD window or beep sounds emit. The RC-18SR

 

 

changes to the RENAME mode automatically as the next step. A

 

function name of the DIRECT function button blinks, you can

 

rename this blinking function name. You input the desired letter

 

or number with the ten keypad. (See the table in step 3 of the next

 

procedure for referece.) If you need not rename, press the OK

 

button or the other buttons except the ten keypad.

 

 

6. Now, proceed to program the other commands from the laser

 

disc player’s remote transmitter to the other DIRECT function

 

buttons (D2-D8). When you have “taught” all 8 direct functions

 

for Page 1, press the page direction key , to go to Page 2, and

 

you can program more direct function keys.

 

7. After memorizing all codes to all DIRECT function buttons, press

 

the operation MODE button z with the tip of a paper clip and

 

return the RC-18SR to the USE mode. Now, the newly memorized

codes are usable from the RC-18SR.

If you wish, you can re-write the names for each function name, status name, and the direct function command names as follows:

For our example, you can change the LCD display window indication from “LD” to “LV-520” (which is the model number for a Marantz laser disc player). Remember, you can re-name a function selector button with a new name of up to six characters of letters and numbers in any combination.

1.Using the tip of a paper clip, press the operation MODE button z until the NAME indicator appears and begins to blink in the LCD window.

2.Choose a button that you wish to re-name, in this case, press the “LD” function button .. In the LCD window, the first character of the six function character display indicators starts blinking “A”, which is the first letter of the alphabet if you press “1” button twice.

3.Choose the desired letter or number by pressing the 10 keypad buttons Ú2. Each 10 keypad button has 4 characters attached to it as follows:

10 keypad button

Press, press again, press again, etc.

1

1 → A → B → C → 1 → ........

2

2 → D → E → F → 2 → ........

3

3 → G → H → I → 3 → ........

4

4 → J → K → L → 4 → ........

5

5 → M → N → O → 5 → ........

8

8 → V → W → X → 8 → ........

9

9 → Y → Z → / → 9 → ........

0

0 → + → — → SPACE → , → ’ → 0 ........

So, in the above example, by pressing the 10 keypad number 4 four times, you get the letter “L” to appear in the display (see Figure 4).

4. You use the cursor buttons and Ú6to move to the next character in the display. By pressing the right cursor button , the letter “L” is confirmed in the first character space in the LCD window and the next character position begins blinking. If you wish to erase a previously memorized character, position the cursor over the character and put the SPACE character in its place (the SPACE character is ten keypad number 0 pressed four times, from the above character chart).

5.Continuing along, re-write the remaining letters “V”, “–”, “5”, “2”, and “0”. By pressing the cursor keys and , each character is confirmed in place. When you go to other DIRECT function pages by using the page function keys ,, characters in the previous page are also confirmed in place.

The name re-writing operation must be done on a function by function basis, that is, re-write the names for all of the LD direct functions, then switch to another function such as VCR, and begin the re-writing process anew to re-name the VCR direct function commands. After completing all re-writing of any of the names, press the OK button within the cursor keys Ú6.

How to re-write the STATUS name:

Using the same steps as outlined above, you can re-write the 9 character status name. During step 5 above, by pressing the up and down cursor keys Ú6the left side of the status indicator begins blinking, and you can change its display according to the same method outlined above, using the 10 keypad character generator. Remember, to confirm each character change, use the cursor keys and . As above, when you change the direct function page by pressing the page direction keys ,, this will confirm the re-written characters in place as well for the page you just finished re-naming. You have up to 9 letters, numbers or other characters available for each status name.

How to re-write the DIRECT function button names:

You can change the name for each of the 8 direct function buttons by using the steps described above to change main function name and status name. Remember, each main function has 8 direct function buttons on each of the 4 pages, so you have up to 32 direct functions that can be re-named, if you wish, for each of the 11 main function selection buttons .. You have up to 4 characters available for each direct function button name.

After completing all re-writing of any of the names, press the OK button within the cursor keys Ú6, or switch to another function button (such as CD). If, during re-naming, a button has not been pressed for 1 minute, the RC-18SR will revert to the prior operating mode (USE) automatically.

If re-writing of all of the desired direct mode functions has been completed, use the tip of a paper clip to press the operation MODE button z, and select the “USE” mode. Now, all of the re-written names are available for use.

How to clear (erase) the memorized codes

(and any re-written names):

The RC-18SR has a high capacity RAM, which ordinarily will allow the learning of several hundred remote codes (and their associated new names, if desired). However, due to the fact that some remote codes occupy more memory space than others, it is possible that the available RAM fills up completely, and the “FULL” indicator appears in the LCD window. In this case, it will not be possible to learn any new remote codes without first deleting some or all of the previously learned remote codes and/or re-written names. There are 4 ways to erase learned remote codes from memory:

nErasing by button(s)

nErasing by DIRECT button(s)

nErasing by function(s)

nErasing all memory contents (complete erasure)

••Note that the factory-programmed RC-5 codes are not stored in

RAM, and are therefore not erasable.

For any of these memory erasure options, you must first set the RC18SR to LEARN mode.

Erasing the memory assigned to a particular button:

Press and hold the CLEAR button Ú4and press the button that you wish to erase 2 times. The code previously learned by that button will be erased, and will then be either empty, or the original factory provided RC-5 code will re-appear in its place.

22

Erasing the memory assigned to a DIRECT buttons:

All codes and names which were previously memorized for each of the functions (such as TV, LD, VCR, etc.) in pages can be erased. Press and hold the CLEAR button Ú4and press the < or > button , 2 times. You will see the “DIRCLR?” (direct button - clear?) indication in the LCD window (see Figure 5). If you wish to go ahead and clear all of the memorized codes for that DIRECT button (8 buttons x 4), press the OK button

Erasing the memory assigned to each function command set:

All codes and names which were previously memorized for each of the functions (such as TV, LD, VCR, etc.) can be erased.

1234

If you wish to go ahead and clear all of the memorized codes for that function button, press the OK button within the cursor keys Ú6. After clearing the memory contents for that function, the RC-18SR will restore any factory programmed RC-5 codes for the function, if any, or will simply be empty.

If you want to cancel the memory clear operation, do not press the “OK” button, but instead simply touch any other button. When you clear all the commands associated with a function button, all of the learned direct function commands (D-1 through D-8, pages 1 through 4) and control buttons, ten keypad, etc are cleared as well.

Complete erasure:

While holding the CLEAR button Ú4depressed, press both of the ON and OFF POWER buttons v simultaneously; “ALL-CLR?” is displayed on the LCD window (see Figure 7).

NAME

1234

If you wish to finalize the complete erasure process, press the OK button within the cursor keys Ú6. If you do not wish to proceed with the complete erasure process, simply press any key other than OK. Remember, the RC-5 codes as supplied from the factory cannot be erased from memory, but they can be replaced with different codes as you wish.

nThe all-clear operation takes about 15 seconds after the OK button is pressed.

nBy now, you have learned how to memorize codes from other brands of components, including changing the various function, status, and direct function names.

Before continuing on to the more advanced RC-18SR programming techniques, you may wish to continue “teaching” the RC-18SR remote control with any or all other commands for other components in your system. When you feel you’ve transferred as many different commands from other components into the RC18SR as you’d like, and possibly changed some or all of their names as well, then feel free to proceed to the next section.

ADVANCED PROGRAMMING TECHNIQUES

ENGLISH

Macro mode:

 

The word “macro” is used to describe a series of specific steps

 

carried out in sequence. For example, a word processing program

 

can use macros to carry out common repetitive typing tasks. During

 

the day to day operation of an A/V system, you might often find

 

yourself pressing the same combination of remote control buttons.

 

The RC-18SR features the ability to “learn” a sequence of infrared

 

 

commands, and “assign” that sequence to a single button, called a

 

MACRO button n. Then, when you want to achieve a specific result,

 

you can activate a macro button to begin sending out a series of

 

commands. For example, suppose you wish to activate your A/V

 

system, and watch a movie on laser disc. A single macro button

 

could send out the following commands in this suggested sequence:

 

nTurn the main amp power on, then turn the TV power on, then switch the TV to the AUX video input, then change the amp to the laser disc (LD) input, then turn the LD player power on, then activate the LD play command, then set the amp surround sound mode to Dolby Pro Logic.

The above 7 step sequence can be programmed into a single macro button, and can be used anytime you want to watch a LD movie. Other macro functions could be used for CD listening, or any other sequence of steps that you regularly perform while controlling your A/ V system.

Macro commands are available when the RC-18SR is set to USE mode.

To program a macro, first identify which commands you wish to memorize, and note if any commands must be in a specific order (for example, before you can activate an amplifier’s surround mode, the amp must first be turned on).

1.Press the MACRO x operation mode button with the tip of a paper clip. Within the LCD window, the MACRO indication appears, then the LEARN indicator starts blinking (see Figure 8).

If a macro was previously programmed, one or more of the numeric indicators at the bottom of the LCD window will appear with a box around it.

2.Press the MACRO button 1 n to begin memorizing the various codes. In the LCD display window the indicator “M1-00” appears in the status line b (see Figure 9).

Figure 9

NAME

1234

The “M1-00” indication signifies Macro number 1, no steps yet programmed. As each macro step is programmed, the “00” indicator will advance by one digit-”01”, “02”, etc. After the first macro step is programmed, two additional digits (with a decimal in between) become visible at the end of the status line, showing the timing value for each step (see Figure 10).

3.

Press the command buttons in the desired sequence. When you

 

press a command button to be learned into the macro sequence,

 

its name will appear within the LCD window. Every time you

 

 

 

 

press another remote command, the macro step number

 

 

increases one by one.

 

 

4.

It is possible during macro programming to adjust the timing of the

 

 

interval between several macro steps. Using the cursor keys Ú6, the

 

 

interval between macro playback steps can be increased or

 

 

decreased in 1/2 second steps, over the range beginning at 1/2

 

 

 

 

second up to 10 seconds. For example, when the indicator shows

 

 

“0.5 SEC”, if you press the

direction key, the interval time would

 

 

change to 10 seconds, then with another press of the direction

 

 

key, it would change to 9.5 seconds, etc. Use the direction key to

 

 

increase the interval time, and use the direction key to decrease

 

 

the interval time.

 

 

 

Some equipment may not be able to receive infrared commands in

 

 

one-half second steps. If after programming a macro you find that

 

 

the sequence was not properly carried out, you may wish to

 

 

experiment with different sequence timings to obtain the correct

 

 

operation results by using the adjustment method described

 

 

above.

 

 

 

Within each MACRO button, up to 20 steps can be memorized.

 

 

In the event that you wish to memorize more than 20 steps per

 

 

macro, then press another MACRO button n , and follow the

 

 

above operations. A maximum of 80 steps can be programmed

 

 

this way. However, you will probably find that 20 steps is more

 

 

than enough to carry out even the most complex macro

 

 

instructions to achieve a specific home theater operating result.

 

Note:

 

 

To memorize the cursor button Ú6except OK button, press and hold

 

the LIGHTING button Û0before pressing the cursor button.

 

When programming macro steps, note that the following buttons

 

would not normally be included in a macro sequence, and are

 

therefore not available for inclusion in a macro:

 

MODE z, MACRO x, CLONE c, PAGE ,, VOLUME Ú1, MEMO Ú3,

 

CLEAR Ú4and LIGHTING Û0.

 

 

To check to see which MACRO buttons n have been programmed

 

with macros, at the beginning of the macro learning sequence the

 

four numerical (1 through 4) indicators at the bottom of the LCD

 

window will show a box around the number for each MACRO button

 

that already has a macro assigned to it (see Figure 11, which shows

 

that only MACRO button number 1 has a macro assigned to it).

1234

In the event that you wish to revise a programmed macro sequence, search the step number you wish to change by using the cursor button and Ú6, and then re-enter the new command. If you memorized different commands than have already been programmed, then the previous macro sequence will be erased and re-written over with the new sequence. To add the new command, press the MEMO button at your desired point. To delete the sequence, press the CLEAR button at your desired point.

During macro programming, if a button is not pressed within 1 minute, the mode will automatically revert to the original mode (USE). When you have completed the macro programming sequence, press the MACRO x operation button with the the tip of a paper clip. The “END” indication appears in the LCD display window. When you release the MACRO button, all indications will revert to the initial status.

There is one more important point to note about programming a macro sequence. During a macro sequence, you may include more than one function selection button to access some transport and/or other commands. Depending on the macro sequence, this might result in the amplifier or receiver’s function selection to be

inadvertently changed as well when the macro is played back. The RC-18SR has a special feature to prevent this from occurring, allowing you to access the special commands available under each RC-18SR function button during a macro playback sequence, while at the same time preventing the amplifier or receiver from constantly switching its input source back and forth at the same time.

During the programming sequence, just remember that if you wish to activate a specific input selector on your amplifier or receiver, make sure that you press the desired input selection button FIRST. Subsequent function button selections can be incorporated in the macro sequence, but on playback, the RC-18SR will only send out a function selection infrared command to the amplifier or receiver based upon the first function command used in the macro sequence. For example, you may wish to have a macro sequence which activates the laser disc player input on your amplifier or receiver, and then have additional commands in the sequence to instruct your TV set to switch to an external video source to receive the laser disc video signal. During the macro programming, make sure that you press the LD function selector button BEFORE you press any of the other function selector buttons in the sequence. You can then include any of the TV commands by pressing the TV function selector button, later in the sequence. When this macro is next used (played back), the RC-18SR will send out the command to change the amplifier or receiver’s input selector to laser disc input (since its function selector button was the first one programmed into that macro sequence), and will not subsequently change the amplifier or receiver’s input to TV (but will send out any special TV commands that you included in the macro sequence).

Programming a macro under a function selector key:

If you wish, you can also program a macro that can be activated by pressing one of the function selector . keys. The programming steps are similar to the steps outlined for programming a macro number button n. The following example shows how to program a macro under the LD (laser disc) function selector .:

(activate the main amplifier’s power on, switch the source to laser disc, switch the amplifier’s surround mode to PRO LOGIC, switch on the television, switch to the television’s AUX video input, power up the laser disc player, and begin laser disc playback)

1.Press the MACRO x operation mode button with the tip of a paper clip.

2.Press the LD function button ..

3.Press the following buttons:

POWER ON, LD, AMP, direct function D-2 (Dolby mode selector) in page 1, TV*, SOURCE ON, direct function D-3 (VIDEO input selector) in page 1, LD*, SOURCE ON, and PLAY.

4.Press the MACRO x button with the tip of a paper clip. The RC18SR will revert to the normal mode and save the macro under the LD function button.

5.To execute the new macro sequence, press and hold the LD function selector button for 3 seconds.

Using the macro function(s) you have programmed:

1.Press the desired MACRO n button. The corresponding macro number will appear at the bottom of the display window, Or if a macro has been programmed under a function button, press and hold that function button for 3 seconds. The LCD display window will indicate the macro number in the LCD window (see Figure 12), or if a macro is programmed under a function key, the status line will display the macro under function buttons as follows:

After all bars are lit up on both displays, “TX OK” (transmission OK) will appear in the source RC-18SR’s LCD window, and “RX OK” (reception OK) will appear in the “cloned” RC-18SR’s LCD window, confirming the end of the copying process (see Figures 24 and 25).

Figure 24

Figure 25

 

LEARN

Please be sure that, during the copying process, neither RC-18SR is physically disturbed (ideally, they should be placed on a table or other surface, and not hand-held during the copying process). If, for some reason, the copying process was interrupted, the “clone” RC18SR’s LCD display window will indicate “RX NG” (reception no good). Simply begin the clone process anew by repeating the above steps.

Note:

Cloning is only available between the same remote control unit series, therefore the RC-18SR cannot be cloned by the RC2000.

5.If the source RC-18SR’s memory contents are at or near full capacity, the copying process will take about 3 minutes. After completion of the copying (cloning) process, press the CLONE button c on both RC-18SR’s with the tip of a paper clip, and select the OFF mode.

Then, you’ll have two identically programmed RC-18SR remotes, one of which can again be used as your system’s primary remote control, and you’ll have the added confidence of knowing that in the event of inadvertent programming (or memory contents being cleared somehow), you can simply retrieve the “backup” RC18SR that you’ve safely tucked away, and within minutes restore the programming contents of the original RC-18SR with your customized configuration.

Note:

Some direct keys are marked “♦” in Direct Command Functions Listing (page 28 to31). The “♦” mark means as follows;

When RC-18SR is cloned with RC2000MKII, the name of the direct key can be cloned, however the remote control code (the factory preset code) cannot be cloned. Only learned remote control codes can be cloned. Then the remote control code is learned by “LEARN mode”. Refer to page 21.

OTHER FUNCTIONS

The Marantz RC-18SR includes the ability to tailor the lighting features according to your preferences. As supplied from the factory, the RC-18SR has lighting features (and lighting timings):

The lighting time is set at the factory for a period of 2 seconds which you can change if you prefer a different lighting time. If you wish to maximize battery life, you can de-active the lighting function entirely.

There is also a lighting button Û0, so that in any light situation, you can activate the backlighting feature. The lighting time in this case is set at the factory for a period of 2 seconds, which you can also change. If you wish to conserve battery power, you can deactivate the lighting function entirely.

RC-5 Shipped destination:

As mentioned earlier in this guide, the RC-18SR is provided with many commands from the factory with infrared codes conforming to the Philips RC-5 remote control language (used by Marantz, Philips, and some other companies). We have provided two different RC-5 command code sets in the RC-18SR, dueto the local requirements of different markets and the different types of remote control codes used in those markets. One code set is for North American (USA) users, while the other code set is for REST users. Your RC-18SR has been set at the factory for USA (United States) codes. It can be easily changed, if you wish.

Set-Up:

To change the lighting time(s), or the destination setting, please follow these steps:

nSelect the SETUP mode, by holding the MEMO button Ú3and at the same time pressing the OK button within the cursor keys Ú6. (see Figures 26 and 27)

LAMP - Lighting function ON or OFF and TIME

Press the D-5 direct function button, and you can then set the time (in seconds) directly using the numeric key pad Ú2buttons. A time figure consisting of only 1 digit can be input by pressing the figure then waiting for 2 seconds or input “0” before entering a desired digit. You can set time in the range from 0 up to 60 seconds (More time would use up more battery life than fewer seconds). “2” is set when shipped from the factory. To set “OFF” input “0”.

BEEP sound

The beep sounds when any buttons are pressed except the AMP button.

The beep sound level can be set by pressing the D-6 button. The display indicates “+” indication and the beeps are sounded by pressing the D-6 button. The “+” indication is followed, by another the “+” indication as the beep sound is increased; + → ++ → +++ → ++++

When the “++++” appears, this is the maximum. If the D-6 button is pressed once more, it will reset to OFF.

” is indicated in the LCD window when the beep sound is set.

Note:

The beep sound is different between the function buttons and other buttons.

VER

Press the D-7 direct function button to switch between USA and REST.

If you need to change this function, we recommend that you make the change before you begin “learning” any new infrared codes for other brands of equipment in your system.

Note:

The name of the DIRECT buttons will be erased if the USA/REST version is pressed.

Battery life:

nBattery life will vary from user to user, if the remote is used constantly or only occasionally, including the amount of backlighting usage. We feel that you can expect the batteries to last about 4 months, based upon 15 remote control operations per day (every day), and 3 lighting operations per day (every day). If the remote is used more often, and if the lighting times are set to longer times than the factory settings, then the battery life may be shortened somewhat.

nAs explained earlier in the guide, the RC-18SR’s sophisticated battery conservation system will advise you long before the battery power is fully exhausted, and will further warn you to replace the batteries by simply becoming inoperative at a certain point. The customized memory contents and user-adjusted settings will still be retained in memory. When you install a fresh set of batteries, the memory contents are protected always, because the RC-18SR uses the non-volatile memory. Alkaline (and the newer lithium) types are recommended for longest battery life.

As you become more familiar over time with how you are using the RC-18SR in your A/V system, you may wish to consider reducing the lighting time(s) if possible, as this can help to extend the battery life.

Adjustment of the LCD contrast

nThe LCD contrast can be adjusted as follows;

Enter SETUP mode of the RC-18SR by pressing the MEMO and OK buttons. Press the VOL+ to increase the LCD contrast. Press the VOL - to decrease the LCD contrast. Press the OK button to end this setting and return the original operation.

DIRECT COMMAND FUNCTIONS LISTING

Within the RC-18SR LCD window, each of the 8 Direct Function buttons has 4 character labels attached for pre-programmed remote commands. These commands can be used with various Marantz A/V components, or other components using the Philips RC-5 remote control language.

You can easily replace the factory-supplied remote command codes with different codes from other brands of equipment. Most functions that are supplied apply to a wide variety of equipment from many companies. The following list shows the remote code assignments for the direct function buttons, for each of the 11 main function selector buttons, as supplied from the factory. You can add or replace function commands, including re-naming them if you wish, in order to customize the RC-18SR for your own particular selection of A/V components.

SURROUND MODES

The SR8000 incorporates digital signal processors (DSP) which can reproduce various surround effects you experience in concert halls and movie theaters, etc. Nine Surround Modes, are provided to reproduce a variety of surround sound effects, according to the content of the source to be played.

Surroud mode

FEATURES

 

 

1. AUTO

When this mode is selected, the receiver determines whether the digital input signal is Dolby Digital, PCM-audio or DTS.

 

 

Note:

 

 

When a Dolby Digital or DTS signal is input, the number of channels for which the corresponding signal is encoded will be

 

 

played.

 

 

Inputting a Dolby Digital two channel signal with Dolby surround status automatically subjects that signal to Pro-Logic

 

 

processing before play.

 

 

96 Khz source matirial can be play back in this mode.

 

 

 

2.

STEREO

This mode bypasses all surround processing.

 

 

Stereo program sources the left and right channels play normaly when PCM-audio or analog stereo is input.

 

 

With Dolby Digital and DTS sources, the 5.1 multi-channels are converted to two channel stereo. 96 Khz source matirial can

 

 

be play back in stereo mode.

 

 

 

3.

DOLBY

This mode is used with source materials encoded in Dolby Digital and Dolby Surround.

 

 

Dolby Pro Logic processing can be used on Dolby Surround encoded two channel source material (Dolby Digital two

 

 

channels, PCM-audio and Analog stereo). This allows play of the four discrete channels (left, center, right and surround).

 

 

Note:

 

 

PCM-audio signals can be subjected to Pro Logic processing when the sampling frequency is 32 kHz, 44.1 kHz or 48 kHz.

 

 

When a signal in another format is input, output will be muted.

 

 

 

4.

DTS

This mode is for DTS encoded source materials such as LASER DISC, CD, and DVD.

 

Cinema

In the DTS Music mode, the LFE signal is reduced by 10 dB. With DTS music material, you should select the DTS Music

 

Music

mode.

 

 

When playing DTS movie discs select DTS cinema mode for proper reproduction of the LFE channel. The DTS mode cannot

 

 

be used when an Analog input has been selected. When the signal in another digital format is input, output will be muted.

 

 

 

5.

MOVIE

These modes provide surround effect processing from each input source material.

 

HALL

They will produce theater, concert hall and stadium like atmospheres. Select as your taste desires.

 

MATRIX

Note:

 

 

PCM-audio signals can be processed in this mode when sampling frequency is 32 kHz, 44.1 kHz or 48 kHz.

 

 

The 96 kHz sampling frequency mutes output.

 

 

6. 5-STEREO

This mode is used to create a wider, deeper and more natural soundstage from two channel source material.

 

 

This is done by feeding the left channel signal to both left front and left surround speaker and the right channel signal to both

 

 

right front and right surround speaker. Addtionally, the center channel reproduces a mix of the right and left channel.

 

 

7. S-Direct ON

In the source direct mode, the tone control circuite and bass management configuration are bypassed for full range

 

 

frequeancy responce and the purist audio reproduction.

 

 

96 Khz source matirial can be play back in this mode.

 

 

Notes:

 

 

Internal speaker size is setup to front L/R = Large, Center = Large, Surround L/R = Large and Subwoofer = yes automatically.

 

 

Tone controls are also defeated.

 

 

 

Caution for DTS signal:

This signal can be played when the connected DVD-player, laserdisc player or CD-player is capable of DTS-digital output. For details, refer to the player's operation manual.

Depending on the player used, DTS play may produce noise. If that happens, set the Surround mode to DTS.

Playing a DTS-CD or DTS laser disc causes the player’s analog output terminal to output noise. Before playing DTS sources, be sure to connect the player’s digital output to the SR8000’s digital input. Be careful when connecting the output of these players to analog audio input.

Note that the SR8000 has the following restrictive functions built in to reduce noise emission as much as possible.

If DTS is selected while in the Surround mode, digital input cannot be switched to analog input. When the analog input function has been selected, Surround mode cannot be switched to DTS.

While signals from DTS-laser disc or CD are playing in another Surround mode, you cannot switch to digital input or from digital input to analog input.

Caution for 96kHz PCM-audio signal:

This signal can be played when a DVD-player or DAT-player connected to the SR8000 is capable of 96 kHz PCM output. For details, refer to the player’s operation manual.

The signal can be played when STEREO or AUTO has been selected for the Surround mode.

Some DVD formatted discs featured copy protect. When use such disc, 96 kHz PCM signal is not output from the DVD player. For details, refer to the player's operation manual.

The relation between the selected surround mode and the input signal

The surround mode is selected with the surround mode buttons of the SR8000 or the remote control unit. However, the sound from the speakers depend upon the relationship between the selected surround mode and the input signal. They are as follows;

GENERAL MALFUNCTION

If the equipment malfunctions, this may be because an electrostatic discharge or AC line interference has corrupted the information in the equipment memory circuits. Therefore:

-disconnect the plug from the AC line supply

-after waiting at least three minutes, reconnect the plug to the AC line supply

-re-attempt to operate the equipment

ERROR MESSAGES

When the display indicates some error messages (e.g. ERROR **), unplug the power cable immediately. Contact your dealer, nearest

Marantz distributor or the Marantz service center in your area.

Memory backup

nIn case a power outage occurs or the power cord is accidentally unplugged, the SR8000 is equipped with a backup function to prevent memory data such as the preset memory from being erased.

The memory functions are backed up for up to about one week.

NOTE:

First of all keep SR8000 Standby or Powered-on more than 6 hours, to sufficient time for memory back up.

HOW TO RESET THE UNIT

Should the operation or display seem to be abnormal, reset the unit with the following procedure.

The SR8000 is turned on, press and hold the CLEAR !3and DISPLAY OFF buttons !1simultaneously for 3 seconds or more.

Remember that the procedure will reset the settings of the function selector, Surround mode, delay time, TUNER PRESET etc., to their initial settings.
