I am wondering if I can use, or should be able to use the remote control
that came with my wife's AV120 Video Recorder?
It looks almost just like my JBR
But I don't know if JBR-V2's are designed to receive from a wireless remote.

Subject: Repeated Remote Commands


I'm currently trying to remote control my JB Studio with repeated key
Start/Pause, Stop, Previous, Next, Volume Up, Volume Down are the remote
commands the JB is accepting.
All of these works well, if I send only one serial command.

As I know, there is a possibility to repeat sending serial commands on the
remote interface for Previous, Next, Vol Up/Down, to get the same behaviour
as if I press the keys on the JB itself.

My code looks currently like this, when I get a trigger (inputs on my uC
application) to send remote commands to the JB:

trigger received
send serial command to JB
wait 200ms
check if my input is still set
   send serial command to JB
   wait 50ms (until repeat sending same command)
until trigger disappeared

So I'm sending 1st command, wait 200ms, then I'm sending again with a
repetition rate of 50ms.

I do this e.g. while playing a song and then starting a serial "Next"

Result is NOT fast forward, but like sending single "Next" commands shortly
one after another -> JB jumps several songs forward until serial buffer is

I already tried to reduce that 50ms repetition rate, but until now w/o

Anybody knowing if this feature can be realised via remote interface ?
Anybody also knowing the correct timing ?
