I have the programmer coming in, it should be here either monday or tuesday then I know if it will work correctly. I have the volume buttons working but nothing else so I have made progress. It took 5 complete resets of the aswc to get it to do that.
I reprogrammed it today and everything works, but I will have to change the programming on it since my channel change buttons now simply scan. The source button works correctly as does the volume buttons. In all I would say that this is a success for working in the cube on a Sony radio.
