The Marantz RC2000MKII remote control unit is a learning-type, programmable unit capable of controlling almost any component in your system, as well as the Marantz D-BUS components (RC-5). The components to be controlled can be selected with ten buttons. OPERATION The remote control unit (RC2000MKII) is a system remote controller. The POWER button 5, 10-key numeric buttons B and control buttons E are used in common across different input source components. The input source system controlled with the RC2000MKII, such as receiver and AV amplifer changes the input when one of the input selector buttons 9 is pressed. Example: To select the LD player as the input source for receiver and play an LD on it Press the LD button twice with in 2 seconds. The input function of the receiver is switched to LD and the RC2000MKII is set for control of the LD player. Press the PLAY button to play an LD. FUNCTION AND OPERATION

2 MACRO (for multiple step macro functions) This button is used to memorize a series of functions. When this button is pressed, the RC2000MKII changes to macro programming mode, and is ready to learn a sequence of remote control commands.
1 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. 1
3 CLONE The RC2000MKII has the ability to replicate itself, downloading all of its internal pre-programmed and userprogrammed commands to another RC2000MKII. This button is used when you wish to teach another RC2000MKII all of the customized commands youve already programmed in this RC2000MKII. 4 POWER ON and OFF These two buttons are used to turn the main components (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, etc. 5 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. 6 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 PD4292D, and then adjust the surround processor to the home theater surround decoding mode, then activate the laser disc players PLAY function. This means that by pressing one macro button, you can achieve the same result as pushing up to 20 buttons in sequence. 7 DIRECT With todays 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 RC2000MKII 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 10 function input selectors. Each DIRECT function may also be provided with an alpha-numeric function indicator visible in the LCD display. You may even change the displayed name of each function to another name, if you wish. 8 PAGE Used to select any 1 of the 4 pages of 8 functions for each DIRECT button, as explained above.

9 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 RC2000MKII. 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 VCR : Video cassette recorder DSS/MD : Digital satellite decoder or mini disc player 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
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 RC2000MKII will not send out a remote control code to instruct the amplifier or receiver to change to that corresponding input, but the RC2000MKII keypad and DIRECT function commands will provide the selected components 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 receivers 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 receivers input will not switch to the CD input, however the RC2000MKII keypad and DIRECT function commands for compact disc operation will be activated. We have provided 10 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/MD is a little different from the others, in that when you press this button, the RC2000MKII will send out a command to the amplifier or receiver to switch to the DSS input, and then the
RC2000MKII keypad and DIRECT function commands will be configured for DSS (digital satellite system) control. We have included DSS commands within the RC2000MKIIs pre-programmed memory for RCA brand DSS equipment. If you have another brand of DSS, you can teach the RC2000MKII with the remote control codes of your equipment. 0 LCD 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 helpful indicators. The LCD window features back-lighting, making it easy to view when the room ambient light is very low. A Volume 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. B Ten keypad Like a telephone key pad, the ten number buttons (0-9) are used to enter numeric digits, useful for finding a specific track on a CD, or to tune a pre-set radio station, etc. C MEMO This button is used to program your CD players 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. D CLEAR This button is used to cancel certain memory or programming operations. E Transport 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 RC2000MKII is set to LD (laser disc) mode, the transport keys will operate the laser disc players PLAY, STOP, PAUSE, FAST FORWARD, FAST REVERSE, NEXT and PREVIOUS track functions. Change the RC2000MKII function selector to VCR, and these keys will then operate the VCRs transport command functions, etc.

For any button for which a new code was not learned, the factory programmed RC-5 code will still transmitte as usual.
Note: POWER ON/OFF 4 code can be learned regardless of the function button selection:
Programming the DIRECT mode buttons 7: 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 1 to switch the RC2000MKII to LEARN mode. 2. Place the laser disc players supplied infrared remote controller so that its transmitter window is facing the infrared sensor window of the RC2000MKII about 5 cm (2 inches) apart. 3. Press the LD function button 9 on the RC2000MKII. 4. Using the direct function page keys and 8, set the direct function to Page 1. Press the D-1 button 7 on the RC2000MKII.
Press and hold the corresponding SIDE-A button on the laser disc players remote transmitter until the OK indicator appears in the RC2000MKII LCD window or beep sounds emit. The RC2000MKII changes to the RENAME mode automatically as next step. A function name of the DIRECT function button is blinked, 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 to referece.) If you need not to rename, press the OK button and other button except the ten keypad. 6. Now, proceed to program the other commands from the laser disc players 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 8 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 1 with the tip of a paper clip and return the RC2000MKII to the USE mode. Now, the newly memorized codes are usable from the RC2000MKII. 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 1 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 9. 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. 3. Choose the desired letter or number by pressing the 10 keypad buttons B. Each 10 keypad button has 4 characters attached to it as follows: 10 key pad button Press, press again, press again, etc. 1 A B C 1 2DEF2 3GHI3 4JKL4 5MNO5 6PQR6 7STU7 8VWXY Z / + SPACE , 0.etc.etc.etc.etc.etc.etc.etc.etc.etc.etc.

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). Figure 4


You use the cursor buttons and F to 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 key pad number 0 pressed four times, from the above character chart). 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 8, 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 rewriting process anew to re-name the VCR direct function commands.
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 D and press the < or > button times. You will see the DIR- CLR? (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 ,)4press the OK button Figure 5
Advanced Programming Techniques
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 find yourself pressing the same combination of remote control buttons often. The RC2000MKII features the ability to learn a sequence of infrared commands, and assign that sequence to a single button, called a MACRO button 6. 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: Turn 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 RC2000MKII is set to either USE modes. 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 amplifiers surround mode, the amp must first be turned on). 1. Press the MACRO 2 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). Figure 8


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. Press and hold the CLEAR button D, and press the function button that you want to erase 2 times. You will see the FNC - CLR? (function clear?) indication in the LCD window (see Figure 6). Figure 6
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 6. After clearing the memory contents for that function, the RC2000MKII 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 D depressed, press both of the ON and OFF POWER buttons 4 simultaneously; ALL-CLR? is displayed on the LCD window (see Figure 7). Figure 7 2.
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. Press macro button 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
If you wish to finalize the complete erasure process, press the OK button within the cursor keys F. 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. By 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 RC2000MKII programming techniques, you may wish to continue teaching the RC2000MKII remote control with any or all other commands for other components in your system. When you feel youve transferred as many different commands from other components into the RC2000MKII as youd like, and possibly changed some or all of their names as well, then feel free to proceed to the next section. The all-clear operation takes about 15 seconds after the OK button is pressed.
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). Figure 10

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. It is possible during macro programming to adjust the timing of the interval between several macro steps. Using the cursor keys 6, 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 MACRO2 button 6 , 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.
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 RC2000MKII 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 RC2000MKII will send out the command to change the amplifier or receivers 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 receivers input to TV (but will send out any special TV commands that you included in the macro sequence).

Note: To AMP button is not include the above functions buttons.
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 9 keys. The programming steps are similar to the steps outlined for programming a macro number button 6. The following example shows how to program a macro under the LD (laser disc) function selector 9: (activate the main amplifiers power on, switch the source to laser disc, switch the amplifiers surround mode to PRO LOGIC, switch on the television, switch to the televisions AUX video input, power up the laser disc player, and begin laser disc playback) 1. 2. 3. Press the MACRO 2 operation mode button with the tip of a paper clip. Press the LD function button 9. Press the following buttons: POWER ON, LD, AMP, direct function D-5 (PRO LOGIC selector) in page 1, TV*, SOURCE ON, direct function D-4 (VIDEO input selector) in page 1, LD*, SOURCE ON, and PLAY. Press the MACRO 2 button with the tip of a paper clip. The RC2000MKII will revert to the normal mode and save the macro under the LD function button. To execute the new macro sequence, press twice and hold the LD function selector button for 3 seconds.
Note: To memorize the cursor button F , press and hold the LIGHTING button J before 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 1, MACRO 2, CLONE 3, PAGE 8, VOLUME A, MEMOC, CLEAR D and LIGHTING J. To check to see which MACRO buttons 6 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). Figure 11
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 v and w 6, 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 minutes, the mode will automatically revert to the original mode (USE). When you have completed the macro programming sequence, press the MACRO 2 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 receivers function selection to be inadvertently changed as well when the macro is played back. The RC2000MKII has a special feature to prevent this from occurring, allowing you to access the special commands available under each RC2000MKII function button during a macro playback sequence, while at the same time prevent the amplifier or receiver from constantly switching its input source back and forth at the same time.

Using the macro function(s) you have programmed: 1. Press the desired MACRO 6 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 the MACRO 6 button twice 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: Figure 12
Press the MACRO 2 button with the tip of a paper clip. The RC2000MKII will revert to the normal mode (see Figure 16). Figure 16
Press the MACRO 6 button you desired. RC2000MKII will transmit the programmed code. (see Figures 17, 18, and 19) Figure 17 Figure 18 Figure 19
Macro under Status line shows: function button: LD LD as the first 2 characters in the line TV TV as the first 2 characters in the line VCR VC as the first 2 characters in the line DSS/MD DS as the first 2 characters in the line AUX AX as the first 2 characters in the line TUNER TU as the first 2 characters in the line CD CD as the first 2 characters in the line TAPE TP as the first 2 characters in the line DVD DV as the first 2 characters in the line AMP AP as the first 2 characters in the line 2. 3. The macro sequence will begin, and the remote control codes will be sent from the RC2000MKII and the display will show the names of the transmitted codes. When the macro transmit sequence has ended, the RC2000MKII will return to the same mode before the macro function was initiated.
Note: If you would like to cancel the MACRO function, press the STOPE button.
Now, well show you another macro programming example, with a more sophisticated sequence: (activate the main amplifiers power on, switch the source to laser disc, switch the amplifiers surround mode to PRO LOGIC, switch on the television, switch to the televisions AUX video input, power up the laser disc player, and begin laser disc playback). 1. Press the MACRO 2 operation mode button with the tip of a paper clip. 2. Press one of the MACRO buttons (1 through 4). 3. Press the following buttons: POWER ON, LD, AMP, direct function D-2 (PRO LOGIC mode), TV*, SOURCE ON, direct function D-4 (VIDEO input selector), LD*, SOURCE ON, and PLAY. 4. Press the MACRO 2 button with the tip of a paper clip. The RC2000MKII will revert to the normal mode. 5. To execute the new macro sequence, press the appropriate MACRO button (1 through 4) that you chose at the beginning of the above programming sequence. 6. RC2000MKII will transmit the programmed code. Note that the function selector buttons TV and LD marked with an asterisk (*) in this macro sequence do not actually send out infrared codes, but simply change over the RC2000MKIIs programmed memory code banks for those respective functions. If you would like to clear the MACRO programmed sequence(s), press and hold the CLEAR D button and simultaneously press the appropriate MACRO button (1 through 4) or function button. M1-CLR? (macro 1clear?) appears in the LCD window. Release the buttons, and then press the OK button (within the cursor control buttons), and the macro is erased. If you do not wish to erase the macro, simply press any other button (but not the OK button ). CLONE mode: Duplicating the memory contents of one RC2000MKII to another RC2000MKII. For a complete home theater system, with numerous components from many different manufacturers, you may find that you have stored dozens, even hundreds of different codes, along with specialized names, macros, etc. We have provided a very quick and simple procedure that allows you to download the entire customized memory contents of one RC2000MKII remote control into another, fresh RC2000MKII.

Press the CLONE button 3 of the learning (receiving) RC2000MKII with the tip of a paper clip or a similar object, and select CLONE RX (clone receive mode). Then press the PLAY button E. Figure 21
Press the source RC2000MKIIs transport control PLAY E button to begin the infrared data transmission sequence. If you wish to duplicate only 1 to 8 functions memory, press function button(s) you wish before pressing the PLAY button. Now the LEARN indicator starts to blink. (see Figure 23) Figure 22 Figure 23
After all bars are lit up on both displays, TX OK (transmission OK) will appear in the source RC2000MKIIs LCD window, and RX OK (reception OK) will appear in the cloned RC2000MKIIs LCD window, confirming the end of the copying process (see Figures 24 and 25). Figure 24 Figure 25
Please be sure that, during the copying process, neither RC2000MKII 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 RC2000MKIIs LCD display window will indicate RX NG (reception no good). Simply begin the clone process anew by repeating the above steps.
Note: The cloning is available between the same remote control unit series only therefore the RC2000MKII cannot be cloned by RC2000.
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 B buttons. 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 (which would use up more battery life than a lower figure, such as 3 or 5 seconds). 2 is set when shipped from the factory. You can set OFF to input 0. BEEP sound The beep sounds when press any buttons. The beep sound level can be set to decrease or increase 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 the + indication as the beep sound is increaded; + ++ +++ ++++ When the ++++ is indicated and the D-6 button is pressed, the mininum level + is set. is indicated in LCD window when the beep sound is set.
Direct Command Functions Listing
Within the RC2000MKII LCD window, each of the 8 Direct Function buttons has 4 character label 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 10 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 RC2000MKII for your own particular selection of A/V components. AMP 1 MODE-AC-RF 3 OPT 4 COAX 5 P/L 6 6-CH 7 2-CH 8 NITE 1 AC-P/L 3 3-ST 4 MOV 5 THX 6 MTRX 7 HALL 8 2-CH 1 TEST 2 DLAY 3 R-EQ 4 ATT 5 CH+ 6 LVL+ 7 LVL8 MLTI selects Dolby Digital (AC-3) decoding selects Dolby Digital RF input selects optical digital input selects coaxial digital input Dolby Pro Logic decoding activates 6 channel setup Stereo (no surround decoding) selects NIGHT mode selects Dolby Digital (AC-3) decoding Dolby Pro Logic decoding Dolby 3-stereo decoding Movie surround sound THX Cinema decoding Matrix surround sound Hall surround sound Stereo (no surround decoding) activates test tone increases delay time activates RE-EQ function activates ATT function next channel (up) increases channel level volume decreases channel level volume activates multi-room mode selects Dolby Digital RF input selects optical digital input selects coaxial digital input bypasses Dolby Digital decoding increases Dolby Digital volume decreases Dolby Digital volume activates amplifiers sleep timer activates 6 channel setup FM band AM/MW band long wave band selects radio band mono/stereo/muting mode selector time display frequency or preset channel display programmed preset channel scan commands for Tape 1 control (NO output) record

Note: The beep sound is different between the function buttons and other buttons.
VER Press the D-7 direct function button to switch between US to 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 button will be erased by changing the VER(sion).
Battery life: Battery 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. As explained earlier in the guide, the RC2000MKIIs 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 RC2000MKII use the nonvolatile 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 RC2000MKII 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 The LCD contrast can be adjusted as follows; Set SETUP mode to the RC2000MKII by pressing the MEMO and OK button. Press the VOL+ to increase the LCD contraset. Press the VOL - to decrease the LCD contrast. Press the OK button to end this setting and return the original operation.

Battery Installation and Replacement Insert the 4 "AA" batteries, making sure to set them in with the proper polarity. 1. Press and pull.
Operating Range * Use the LCD remote controller within a distance of about 7 meters from the front of the component's remote control sensor and at a horizontal angle of within 30. * The remote control operation may not function if the component's remote control sensor is exposed to direct sunlight or strong artificial light, or if there is an obstacle between the sensor and the remote control unit.
2. Load the batteries in the direction indicated by the "+" and "" marks in the case.



3. Put the lid back on.

Approx. 7m/ 23ft
LCD Remote Controller Notes * Keep the back light button turned off except when using the LCD remote controller in a dark room. Leaving the back light on wears down the batteries faster. Handling the LCD remote controller * Do not subject to strong shocks. * Do not subject to moisture. If moisture gets on the unit, wipe it off immediately. * Keep away from heat. * Do not scratch or tap on the LCD remote controller's liquid crystal display with sharp objects (pens, compasses, etc.), and do not subject it to strong shocks.

General Tips to Capturing IR Codes
General Tips for Infrared Remote (IR) Integrating and Performance Expectations Capturing IR Codes
IR(Infrared) is one of the most popular modes of control for remote hand held operation of Audio Video Equipment. Keep in mind that not all remotes are created equal! Some remotes may be very easy to capture into other learning remote systems. Other remotes will be very difficult if not impossible to capture. Below are tips to help you, the programmer, capture IR commands. Definitions: Capture - The process of teaching an IR Command from the Original (OEM) remote that came with a piece of equipment to a learning remote or IR capture device. Infrared - A term used to refer to the part of the Electro-Magnetic Spectrum which lies just beyond the visible color RED. Infrared is invisible to the human eye but follows the same behavior patterns as visible light. Learning Remote refers to the remote system that the IR commands will be transmitted to and captured, the Student. IR Capture Device refers to a device that is used to capture, verify, store and then send IR to a Personal Computer for control systems, AMX and Crestron. IR Repeater System refers to a system which contains a IR receiving target, connection block or hub, IR emitters and a power supply through which the IR commands can be repeated or transmitted remotely Teaching Remote refers to the remote that came with the equipment which is to be integrated, the Teacher. Programmer refers to the individual that actually performs the required tasks to capture the IR commands.

Section 3.9 Application Notes-General Tips to Capturing IR Codes

Escient Essentials

General Tips
Quick Button Press Some Learning remotes require that the programmer use a very short button press when capturing the commands from the Teaching Remote. Using long button presses will result in the controlled device responding as if the function button was pressed multiple times. The Niles IntelliPad and Audio Access PX-600 Programmer have this behavior. Long Button Press Some Learning remotes may except or require that the programmer use a long button press when capturing the commands from the Teaching Remote. The Marantz RC2000MKII and the Home Theater Master SL-9000 are examples of remotes that can except long presses. When these remotes capture a long button press, their operational behavior changes. After programming, a quick press will result in the command being issued only once. A press and hold will cause either of these two remotes to repeat the command, causing multiple hits. The AMX IRIS is an example that (typically) requires long button presses. Secondary Teaching Remotes On occasion, you may come across a teaching and learning remote combination that will not function. Try using another manufacturers learning remote to capture the codes. After capturing the commands, use this secondary teaching remote as the source for the originally targeted learning remote. Weak batteries Weak batteries will reduce/distort the output of a remote and make it difficult if not impossible to capture. Always try to stock a fresh set in your installation vehicles.
Direct Sunlight The Sun is the largest source of Infrared Energy in our solar system. Trying to capture IR codes into a system while the target is exposed to direct sunlight will prove to be frustrating. Also, having a remote target in another part of the house, which is connected to the common IR repeater system, bathed in direct sunlight can cause the entire IR system to perform poorly.
Lighting (lamps) Some interior lighting fixtures emit a relatively high amount of Infrared Energy and can
interfere with capturing IR codes. HID, Fluorescent and some incandescent lights may need to be turned off while trying to capture codes.

General Tips (continued)

Distance and Angle When trying to capture the signal into another remote system, placing the teaching remote too close to the target may overload the receiver. Too far away, the signal will not be strong enough. Use the General Rule of Thumb: Start with the distance between the teaching remote and the learning remote at about the length of your thumb. If you are not successful at capturing at this range, increase or decrease the distance and try again.

Performance Expectations and Design Considerations
Distance and Angle The angle and distance from the IR receiver will effect the performance. Too far off the center axis or too far away, the IR receiver will not see the incoming signal. This situation will become exaggerated with weak batteries. Weak Batteries Weak batteries will reduce the usable range of a remote. Battery life is dependent upon several factors. Frequency of Use If the remote is used daily, and the end user is an active button pusher, the remotes batteries will need to be replaced more frequently than that of an end user who does not use the remote as much. Also, remote batteries tend to mysteriously expire. This is usually due to one or more of the following: the remote gets stuck in couch cushions with buttons depressed, children playing with remote or batteries being replaced with dead batteries from another battery operated device.
Quality of the Batteries Always use fresh Alkaline batteries. Don use batteries recycled from another electronic t device.
Power Consumption Newer remote designs now have back lighting. This new feature is great for evening operation but comes at the cost of needing to replace batteries sooner.

Performance (continued)

Multiple emitters (blackouts and masking) Infrared targets can be confused by receiving multiple IR commands at once. If two IR signals strike the same receiving target at slightly different timing, the IR target will adds both signals together. The result looks nothing like what the decoder logic expected to see and therefore does nothing. If you have multiple emitters within a system that ALL FLASH the same codes, it is possible for the intended receiving target to see the signal from the emitter directly attached and the signal from another emitter on an adjacent component. Most manufacturers of emitters supply blackout masks/ hoods and/or blackout shells for their emitters. Applying the blackout hood and shells will greatly reduce the amount of stray IR being transmitted and remote operation performance will increase.
Reflective Cabinets Cabinets with light colored surfaces or glossy finishes can reflect IR. This can result in poor performance or no performance at all. Having to press a button several times to activate a function is a sign. See Multiple Emitters.
Direct View Televisions Direct View Television tubes can lock up an IR receiver that is placed too close to the picture tube. Relocate the IR receiver to a new location where the TV does not interfere. Interference typically coincides with very bright images being displayed.

Lighting (dimmers, ballast, wire pulls) Electronic switching dimmers and ballast can emit enough RF energy to render IR s systems useless as well. When designing the system layout and pre-wiring, avoid placing IR receivers and associated wiring in close proximity to these devices. Keep in mind that the wiring connecting the lamp to the dimmer or ballast acts as a transmitting antenna. Example of interference: Placing an IR receiver on/near a projection screen, which has rope lighting controlled by a dimmer, has a good chance of intermittent operation. Also follow the manufacturers suggestions for correct wire type and termination.
