Types of Dune HD Remotes

There are the following types of Dune HD IR Remotes:

IR HEX Codes

All Dune HD IR Remotes use NEC IR protocol. Different generations of Remotes use different NEC IR customer codes:

NOTE: All firmware versions of all Dune HD models support the customer code "00 BF". The customer code "CF CF" is supported by latest Dune HD models, and is partially supported by latest FW updates for previous Dune HD models (exiting "hardware standby" mode on these Dune HD models still requires the use of the customer code "00 BF"). So, when programming third-party programmable remote controls or smart-home systems, it is recommended to use the customer code "00 BF", which is fully compatible with all Dune HD models and all FW versions.

IR HEX codes (latest Remote models use CF CF instead 00 BF):

Notes about support for legacy Remote models in legacy Dune HD models:

Full Power Off Using RC

Full Power Off Using RC is supported for many models starting with Dune HD Base 2.0. These player models have a special setting (Setup / Misc / Advanced / "POWER" RC button) allowing to specify whether the "POWER" RC button should trigger "software standby" or "power off" (hardware standby).

It is also possible to perform an emergency "full power off" by pressing and holding the "POWER" RC button for a few seconds (supported only for models with special power-management microcontroller), but this special possibility is not recommended for the regular usage (since this is handled purely by the hardware, and the player can not shutdown properly, such as properly writing all changes to connected HDDs).

Discrete Power On/Off IR Codes

Starting with the firmware version 091229_1411_beta, all Dune HD player models have support for DISCRETE-POWER-ON and DISCRETE-POWER-OFF IR commands. These IR commands can not be generated using any Dune HD Remote, and are intended only for users of programmable remotes.

IR HEX codes for DISCRETE-POWER-ON and DISCRETE-POWER-OFF commands (NEC protocol, customer code 00 BF):

    DISCRETE-POWER-ON       00 BF 5F A0
    DISCRETE-POWER-OFF      00 BF 5E A1

The player handles these DISCRETE-POWER-ON and DISCRETE-POWER-OFF IR commands exactly the same way as the standard POWER IR command (generated by the "POWER" RC button on the standard Dune remote), with the only difference that DISCRETE-POWER-ON is ignored if the player is already switched on, and DISCRETE-POWER-OFF is ignored if the player is already switched off.

Notes about old Dune HD models:

Forcing power-off

Some Dune HD models starting with Dune HD Smart/Max/Duo can be forced to perform full power-off by pressing and holding POWER RC button for a few seconds; in this case, the power-off is forced by the hardware and the software has no chance to handle it (e.g. write unchanged data to disks etc), so it should be used carefully (e.g. when the player hangs up). The recommended way to put the player into full power-off mode is to configure POWER RC button to do full power-off. The following approach can also be used: if POWER RC button is configured to enter software standby, the following alternative approach can be used: first press POWER RC button and wait for the player to enter standby mode; then press and hold POWER RC button for 2-3 seconds, and then release it -- this will trigger full power-off with proper software handling.

Automatic power-on mode

Some Dune HD models starting with Dune HD Smart/Max/Duo do not boot automatically when the power is connected. Instead they are put by default into hardware standby mode, and wait for the user to explicitly request power-on.

Some Dune HD models starting with Dune HD Smart D1/B1/H1 (latest batches only, shipped starting with June-2011, serial number on the unit should be ASD1LHVAA***1123***00001 or greater), Dune HD Lite 53D, Dune HD TV-101/301 models can be reprogrammed to boot automatically on power-on. Reprogramming affects the flash memory of the microcontroller which is responsible for power on/off handling, and can be done in the following way:

- Put the unit into hardware standby (full power-off) mode.
- Carefully direct the RC onto the IR eye.
- Carefully press the following sequence of RC buttons:
    P, O, W, E, R, 1, ENTER
- The unit should LED-blink once. If the unit does not blink, try again
  several times. If it does not work, it means the unit has an old version
  of the MCU firmware and auto-power-on mode is not supported by the unit.
- To disable auto-power-on: the same, but press:
    P, O, W, E, R, 0, ENTER
