IIRC the PVR can only detect RC5 remotes. There is a file on the home
page of lirc (http://www.lirc.org) remotes.tar.bz2 that has the codes
of all the currently known remotes.
Unpacking that file and looking in the Sony directory, I do not see any
of your Sony remotes, but grepping them for RC5 only returns one match,
so I would suspect Sony does not use RC5 protocol.
Grepping in the jvc directory for RC5 returns no matches.
I think Philips came up with RC5, there are many matches for it in the
You could get a pretty cheap universal remote from Radio Shack, and
program it to imitate a Philips remote, or Hauppauge have a replacement
remote on their site for $14.95
