Remote Control question
Remote Control question –
I recently purchased a PS2 remote for use with my v9 PAL PS2. However it only works when i plug in the IR reciever which is designed for slim ps2s (it fits loosely in the chubby ps2). I tried the remote control test program that EEUG made a while ago called RM test (http://psx-scene.com/forums/official...ghlight=remote)
When i ran this program i got:
- "External IR support is enabled" -
- "Internal IR support is enabled" -
"Unknown code 0x0000000000"
My ps2 is model is SCPH-50002 so it should be the v9, right?
Can anyone please help?

...you can play with "Controller port 2" and "Directional buttons" menu options. Settings first one to "none" will enable built-in IR sensor (if your machine has it). Second one depends on actual remote control...
My ps2 box and manual says that it has a built-in infared reciever and it is model SCPH-50002, but it doesn't respond in sms(even when playing around with the settings) nor when watching a dvd. It only works when connecting the infared reciever to the console.
Are there any files that should be added/replaced on my memory card, or would you think that the built in reciever is faulty?
...you can also try to dump and extract your ROM (BIOS) to see if there's RMMAN module. If it is not there then look for ROM image somewhere (p2p networks) that has it. Extract it, rename it to RMMAN.IRX (all capitals) and copy it to mc0:/SMS folder. Then set "Controller port 2" menu option to " remote control", plug your IR sensor into slot 2 and it should work, otherwise I don't know (I must have the same hardware setup to get it working). Good luck...
This is not the problem as it does work with the IR sensor plugged in. The problem is that it won't work without the IR sensor..

(Other than perhaps a slightly neater-looking setup, and the warm feeling inside of knowing that everything is perfect!).
...maybe the RC itself is not compatible with built-in receiver? (btw., does build-in DVD player work?)...
If the remote is not a Sony one, and comes with it's own sensor, there aren't any guarantees that it transmits data using any particular protocol, it might use something proprietary that is incompatible with the Sony built in protocol. This is especially true when it is one designed to control many other devices (like yours).
It might even use a different wavelength or carrier frequency.
Unless you have any specific information (e.g. the remote manual) telling you that it should work with the built-in PS2 sensor, or have proof that some else has done it, you may be wasting your time.
Yea i think that is possible dave_t. Well at least it works with the sensor plugged in. Thank you guys for your input, it is much appreciated
