How to get a device added to the list of supported remote codes?

Community Member


Since Chromecast remote is not a learning one and you select the device based on a readily available list, I was wondering where does that list come from and is there a way to suggest additions to it?

The problem is that I'm using a Topping brand pre-amp/DAC with my TV, connected to active speakers and I'd like to control the volume with Chromecast remote. I wrote to Topping support to ask if they comply to some known set of remote codes used by some other manufacturer and the answer was no. They did provide the codes they use but I can't do anything with them. I believe they use the same codes for all their products.

The list I got was as follows:

RC_20_USER_CODE        0X8877    
RC_1X_IR_HEADPHONE        0X04
RC_1X_IR_LINEOUT          0X40
RC_1X_IR_INPUT_L          0X47
RC_1X_IR_INPUT_R            0X15
RC_1X_IR_VOL_INC                0X46
RC_1X_IR_VOL_DEC            0X16
RC_1X_IR_MUTE                    0X06
RC_1X_IR_POWER             0X18
RC_1X_IR_A                  0X10
RC_1X_IR_DIS                     0X14
RC_1X_IR_FIR                          0X54
Is there a way to get new devices added to the list and if yes, what might it be?

Hey there jjo,

I apologize about the late response, thank you for being patient! The best way to let Google know what devices and codes you'd like to see added to the Chromecast devices is to submit feedback via Google TV. That way Google knows which devices are in demand, and they can get to work updating that list.

I hope that helps you out! If you have any other questions or concerns for me, please let me know!

Best regards,
