Lyndel, Toggle bits may become a real issue. At a recent Elan training, their software includes a fix for the new toggles, created and sold by Philips, believe it or not. My understanding is the first toggle, for eg., turns on, and the second turns off. They are not discrete but if you cover up the second IR toggle press the command again it will not work until pressed again.

Don't confuse toggle bit with Toggle Codes. (Power Toggle vs discrete Power On/Off).

Toggle Bit is an encoding technique used to detect if a button is pressed 2 times in a row. Such as 0 0 7 in a channel sequence. The actual remote's IR data has a bit inside that flips on/off (toggles) on subequent presses of the same button such that the IR receiver can detect that user really did want 0 0 7 and not 0 7. Pronto has difficulty learning such codes in certain circumstances.

Again, please see the Classic Pronto FAQ and don't ASS-U-ME. There are details/workarounds there.
