Hello Bill,

Could you modify the activation sequence(currently pressing Power/TV key) as follows?

1. First activation - as it is, by pressing Power/TV key.
2. Afterwards - automatic, even after battery replacements.
3. Modifying defalut device - Currently the default device is TV. It would be nice if we can designate a macro to the initial activation of Power/TV key. so that we may set the deafult device freely as we want.

I need this to make extended remotes fool proof. I found aged users easily forget the activation sequence after battery replacements. This is critical for Kameleon remotes whose battery use is quite heavy.

Thanks in advance.

If we had the choice, we might not have required activation at all.

We aren't in control of what happens after you replace batteries, so we can't make the extender activation automatic at that point.

At significant cost in eeprom space you could modify an extender so that almost any keypress after changing batteries would activate the extender. In a remote with just a 2K eeprom, I don't think the eeprom space cost is acceptable.

Yes, indeed.

I guess just after battery replacements, a remote performs power reset automatically. Do you mean something else?

No doubt.
