There seems to be a great deal of support for the logitech harmony remotes but I am wondering how we can find or convert codes for the Pronto?

You can learn codes from Harmony into Pronto.

If you are looking for hidden discrete codes, I would recommend learning the Power Toggle command for a device and then pasting into IRScrutinizer. Once you know the protocol and with a bit of learning, you can generate functions 0..255 (256 functions) and test with the equipment in question.

I'm not quite sure I'm following you. Are you looking for a tool to extract codes from a Harmony config (I've never used one so never even installed the editor)?

From what I just learned via a quick review or Google, Pronto Hex is the format that Logitech needs to put codes into their software.

Or, are you looking for discrete/hidden codes you might not know about. If you are seeking undocumented codes, you might try the Discrete Hunter forum.

On a side note...

I spent about 16 hours last week generating codes with IR Scrutinizer and documenting an XCF file as I tested all 128 functions across multiple Pair IDs for the new AppleTV boxes.

Sure, it is not fun but MakeHex and the newer IRScrutinizer make the job alot easier. IRScrutinizer will even generate a CCF file that can be imported into PEP1. Sure, you need to use a stylus to test but it surely works.

If you so desire, you can change the size of the buttons. Select the Export pane and the Pronto Classic subpane, and fill in the desired button size. (Unfortunately presently not persistent.)
