I get the impression that he has the Pronto Hex but wants to make a Pronto file, that is, a ccf. But I don't see any reference to the software that the loxone has that makes use of the ccfs.

What is the software that you use with the Loxone?

When you ask about making a ccf, you're asking about making a file that is to be used with particular remotes. For instance, ProntoEdit 4 makes ccfs for the first couple of Pronto models. Touch Screen Setup makes ccfs for the first few Marantz models. You can't use a Marantz ccf in a Pronto, nor vice versa. So you need to have software made to turn the Pronto hex of a command (what you supply in your first post) into a usable command in the software for the loxone.

What's the brand and model of your "IR Blaster"? To me, the basic IR blaster is a remote such as the Pronto, for which Pronto software is needed to turn a Pronto hex command into a stream of IR. Any other blaster is simply a way to emit the same IR as the original remote, but at some remote location (a foot away to a mile away). Also, Blaster has the connotation that it outputs A LOT of IR because it's intended to send commands to many components in a space. You might mean simply emitter, which is one LED stuck on one component to control only that component.

By the way, the best way to get someone to convert something is to post it in this discussion. That way, if it can be done, someone will volunteer and do it. If more questions need to be asked about it, people will ask the questions.
A good answer is easier with a clear question giving the make and model of everything.
