Many, many thanks to those that have contributed to this thread, especially johnsfine and grzpeat. With their generous help I was able to slog through and get the Motorola VIP1216 working with my Control4 HC300.

The Control4 HC300 uses the same code structure as the Pronto, so this should work for most (non Neo) Pronto owners.

Following johnsfine's recommendation, perform the following steps:

- Download MakeHex from the RemoteCentral files area (googling for makehex returned it as the first match)
- Unzip MakeHex
- Open Nokia32.irp in notepad (it's part of
- Change the line "Device=33.160" to "Device=35.64"
- Save the file as "VIP1216.irp"
- Open a command prompt
- Navigate to the directory where makehex was unzipped
- Run "MakeHex VIP1216.irp"
- Open "VIP1216.hex" in notepad

I spent the last couple hours checking each code in the hex file (be careful trying this on your own devices since some devices can be damaged by this). Here are the codes I came across. The VIP1216 will flash the power light whenever it receives a function that it recognizes. Any functions not specifically listed did not cause the VIP1216 power light to flash.
