Some time ago, I created a comprehensive MX-850 design for lots of AV kit, including a Sky+ satellite receiver (as used in the UK). The Sky+ digibox is included in the MX-850 Editor IR database and I used this as the starting point for my SKY+ device layout. I then changed most of the LCD button layouts. For some reason or other, I also overwrote the database codes for the Up and Down navigation hard buttons with learned codes. I later realised that the Down button for Sky+ always jumped two steps at a time. However, all my attempts to re-learn this code always result in the same double jump.

I have now created a TEMP device that has been programmed with the standard Sky+ layout from the IR database. The Down hard button works properly in this device. I now want to transfer this single IR database code to the Down button in my SKY+ device. Obviously, I could simply start again with the SKY+ device design but I'm lazy and just want to fix the one button that's not working.

So far, I have not found any way to copy a single IR database code. Any suggestions?

On the MX-850, only learned IR codes can be copied, not preprogrammed database IR codes. AFAIK, only the MX-3000 allows this.

Actually, I seem to have found a roundabout way to copy the code I want.

As previously described, I have my SKY+ device (partially derived from the SKY+ [174] device in the IR database) and a temporary TEMP device (an exact copy of the [174] device). Within any of the MX-850 Editor menus, these are referred to as SKY+[174] and TEMP[174].

While in the edit dialogue box for the problem Down hard button of the SKY+[174] device, I selected the TEMP[174] device and the IR code for its Down button. After saving this, I then redited the button to change its source to the SKY+[174] device. As the stored code was originally from the same IR database source it accepted this device change while leaving the IR code unchanged. I then deleted the TEMP device.

Things would be a great deal easier and more intuitive if the MX-850 Editor followed basic Windows conventions and allowed straightforward copying and pasting of any data!

Iirc the MX900/950 editors allow for cut&paste; additionally, they have a "browser" feature that will let you pick & choose IR codes from either an MXD file or the IR database.
