I've not confirmed this on the GX-7 but it should work as it seems all European Sony DVD players/recorders use the same IR codes. I have successfully used this on a GX3 and an NS355.
I've managed to reprogram my RDR-GX3 using Psiloc Total IR Remote on my Sony Ericsson P900 (Compatible with: P800, P900, P910, BenQ P30, Arima)- Free trial download! (This program is also available for available for: Nokia 3650/3600, 3660/3620, 6600, 7650, Siemens SX1, Panasonic X700, Samsung SGH-D710, Motorola A1000)
Total IR remote available here: http://www.psiloc.com/index.html?action=ShowArticleItem&ida=140
I then got a Philips Pronto setup file from Remotecentral.com: http://www.remotecentral.com/cgi-bin/fi ... rea=pronto
Total IR recognises this file - beam it to the phone (or download it using the phone) - open the file, then select to import the codes.
Now open Total IR and select to add any device by tapping one of the buttons(I used a Sony TV setting as it has numbers on it).
Assign the buttons thus:
Tap the menu button in the bottom left corner, then tap Select Command - dismiss the dialog that pops up then tap the 1 button on the remote. Press select on the next dialog...
Here I ran into a snag - but I worked it out from the fact that I learned on another forum that button 5 should be the power button - but button 1 was power for me. SO the codes were backwards!
Assign Unnamed 5 by tapping Done.
Repeat for buttons 2-5 by assigning 4, 3, 2, 1 respectively.
Who knows, maybe for you the codes import the right way around - so if this doesn't work, try assigning code 1 to button 1.
IMPORTANT NOTE - The DVD recorder has to be set to use DVD remote setting 1 for this to work.
