As a suggestion from someone in the general forum, I cooked this up in the last day or two. This protocol will allow you to select a specific screen for a specific device on the two remotes.

To use it you put a keymove using a "key type" keymove with device TV/1107 (device and protocol below) with a key for the current device (say AUD/Phantom1), the key number will be used as an index into the valid screens for each device (1 thru 5). Not all devices have 5 screens, if the screen is not valid, the screen will be set to the first screen. You have to use key names (1=TV, 2=setup, etc) in the keymove to make this work. (yes, it is a hack)

The screens are as follows:
CBL: 2 screens
TV: 3 screens
VCR: 2 screens
DVD: 1 screen
CD: 1 screen
PVR: 1 screen
AUD: 4 screens


URC-6960/URC-9960B01 device

FD 00 01



URC-6960 protocol

00 00 01 F6 33 DE 04 8B C3 A7 F2 E7 35 37 FF 07
F9 84 F6 34 7B 8B 03 F6 34 72 AF


URC-9960B01 protocol

00 00 01 F6 07 55 04 91 C3 00 C3 A7 F2 84 0B 37
FF 07 F9 85 F6 07 F1 8B 03 F6 07 E8 AF


So, for example, if you always wanted when you push the CABLE button to have the O_device set to CBL and the screen set to the second screen, you could:

1: define a keymove, CBL/Phantom1 that set the screen to #2 as above
2: define a macro O_CBL,Phantom1

I've done minimal testing on this, so be careful. If this is useful, I'll build it into the next release of the extender that I'll probably release when I get home from my trip next week.



enjoy

on vacation, had a good bit of time to think while waiting in all of the lines at the theme parks..


In general, I now think that this is probably a bad idea. given that you can get the same results by doing an o_xx and then a couple of scrolls and not have to load a special protocol.


Unless I hear otherwise, I'm going to not build this into a future update to the extender.

Bill, I thought YOU had better things to do on vacation than JP1 stuff, Laughing . Of course, you probably didn't drag a bag of remotes through security.

I only thought of it while I was wasting time in the never-ending lines
