THIS CODE IS STILL BEING DEVELOPED

Models are VR 5900, VR 5700, VR 5090 and VR 5080 and maybe other models. Use a null-modem cable DB9 Female at each end. Com settings: 9600,N81




Operational Status

  • On/Off works
  • Volume & Mute work
  • Defined but not tested:
    • Listen Modes (Stereo/Dolby Digital/DTS/DTS-ES/DSP ...)
    • Input Select (CDR/AV1/DVD/TUNER ...)
