I can't find any information in the user manual or elsewhere about sending discrete remote control commands to select the input source on the SHD. There is a remote control command for "Source", but this just cycles through the sources and is not helpful when programming macros for a universal remote control (like a Harmony). For example, I want to be able to have the SHD go directly to the toslink input when I want to play CDs without knowing what source it is currently on. I must be missing something, since I can't believe that a modern piece of A/V equipment would not have discrete remote control commands.

Can you please tell me if there are discrete IR commands for going directly to a specific input and what these are? If this doesn't exist, the SHD is not going to work for my needs and will need to be returned.

Unfortunately we don't have a dedicated command on the current firmware. In the future, we'll make sure to add a new specific IR command for a specific source. It's a simple fix.

Check out the latest firmware from the user downloads section. It does support unique source selection for say the Harmony remote. You just program the HEX command as below.

IR format: NEC

Src Selection 35 CA 0E F1
Filter On/Off 35 CA 06 F9
Preset 1 35 CA 01 FE
Preset 2 35 CA 02 FD
Preset 3 35 CA 05 FA
Preset 4 35 CA 00 FF
Vol Up 35 CA 0A F5
Vol Dn 35 CA 09 F6
Mute/Unmute 35 CA 0C F3
TOSLINK 35 CA 22 DD
SPDIF 35 CA 23 DC
AES-EBU 35 CA 24 DB
RCA 35 CA 25 DA (for SHD only)
XLR 35 CA 26 D9 (for SHD only)
USB 35 CA 27 D8
LAN 35 CA 28 D7

Please keep us updated if any questions. :-)

You guys are so awesome! This is working perfectly now. I sent the remote control codes you added to Logitech Harmony and they added them to their database so other Harmony customers will get them as well.

THANK YOU!

Glad to hear you're happy and thanks for getting Harmony to add the SHD to the harmony database.
A new app note is now available for others looking to do the same. :-) www.minidsp.com/applications
