URC-1280 Contour 8 - RDF file revision and tests

I already put some issues that I found during programming and testing of my URC-1280. See http://www.hifi-remote.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=101581

Today I found some additional errors in the URC-1280's RDF file (numeric buttons). Because of this I deleted my formerly revised RDF file from files section and started this new tread with a new title and a new link to v2 of my RDF file at the end.

Summing up:
The URC-1280 RDF file delivered with the RemoteMaster v2.07 build 2 is not correct!

1)
(copied from the thread mentioned above)
I read out the URC-1280 button codes by programming macros using 995 code to verify the [Buttons] sections in the RDF file.
Here are the results (I extracted the relevant sections from downloaded data and added some comments):

[Macro]
# Rewind;Play;FastFwd;Stop;Pause;Record;Guide;Menu;Info;Left;Right;Up;OK;Down
Data=0D 0E 0F 10 11 12 13 14 15 17 19 16 18 1A
SegmentFlags=255
KeyCode=35 -> = $23 (Red Button)
DeviceIndex=0

[Macro]
# AV;Exit;Vol+;Back;Ch+;Vol-;Mute;Ch-
Data=1B 1C 1D 1E 1F 20 21 22
SegmentFlags=255
KeyCode=36 -> = $24 (Green Button)
DeviceIndex=0

[Macro]
# 1;2;3;4;5;6;7;8;9;Text;0;TextOff
Data=27 28 29 2A 2B 2C 2D 2E 2F 30 31 32
SegmentFlags=255
KeyCode=37 -> = $25 (Yellow Button)
DeviceIndex=0

[Macro]
# Red;Green;Yellow;Blue
Data=23 24 25 26
SegmentFlags=255
KeyCode=24 -> = $18 (OK Button)
DeviceIndex=0

2)
The original [ButtonMaps] section contains lines like these (starting with 0,1,2 or 3):
0 = ($31, $27, $28, $2A, $29, $2B, $2C, $2E, $2D, $2F), ($20, $1D, $21), ($22, $1F),

They have to be replaced with:
0 = ($31, $27, $28, $29, $2A, $2B, $2C, $2D, $2E, $2F), ($1D, $20, $21), ($1F, $22),

After this change the Numeric, Volume and Channel buttons are working correctly with my devices.

I don't know if there are other errors in the original 1280 RDF. Any hints how to debug and test are welcome.

The revised version 2 of my RDF file is available at http://www.hifi-remote.com/forums/dload.php?action=file&file_id=25504

I think I found another issue with the original 1280s RDF delivered with RemoteMaster v2.07 build 2. I was not able assign functioning codes to the "shifted" Menu and Info buttons. Checking the original RDF I found that [ButtonMaps] section of the RDF file contains the button codes in shifted state. "Menu" ($14) is listed as ($94) and "Info" ($15) is listed as ($95). So, I created a version 3 of my RDF available at http://www.hifi-remote.com/forums/dload.php?action=file&file_id=25504

To validate my revised v3 of the 1280 RDF file I created macros with RMIR for the affected buttons. I was able to verify my RDF revision with my Sony TV and also using IRScope with my IRWidget that I home-brewed some weeks ago to let me eliminate my old parallel port based "CaptureIR" hardware.

I bound Red to Menu and Green to Info and the remote generates the expected codes. Here is the RMIR data I downloaded from remote:

# Macro Test with my revised v3 of the 1280 RDF file
[Macro]
Data=14
SegmentFlags=255
KeyCode=35 # $23 (= Red Button)
DeviceIndex=0

[Macro]
Data=15
SegmentFlags=255
KeyCode=36 # $24 (Green Button)
DeviceIndex=0

@3FG: I hope this sufficient to commit a new version to SourceForge

@urcfan02 - thanks for this. I used your RDF as the one with the latest download (RM2.08b7) still seems to have the volume keys reversed. I haven't had this remote long, but I've loaded up a few of my standard upgrades and things seem functional.

I think I must have misread along the way, but I thought this remote, and JP1.4 in general supported special functions without the need for an extender. Have you been able to get DSM, or DKP/LKP to work?

Thanks!

The 1280 RDF in RM2.08b7 package is still the same file as in RM2.07b2 that I used. I'm happy to hear that my work on this RDF helps other users, too.

I did not try to get DSM or DKP/LKP to work (never used this). I assume it will not work. I only tried to simply assign macros to a device button (in the context of another thread here) and found that it also doesn't work.

I have now committed v3 by urcfan02 to SourceForge and it will be included in the next release of RMIR.
