Hello
I have a smart home solution that only accepts CCF files to be imported into my IR blaster.
I have on this site found the IR codes Im searching for but have no idea how to convert them into a CCF file?

Code I want to convert is
0000 0067 0000 0010 0060 0018 0030 0018 0030 0018 0030 0018 0030 0018 0018 0018 0030 0018 0018 0018 0018 0018 0018 0018 0018 0018 0018 0018 0030 0018 0030 0018 0018 0018 0018 037c


1. Is there a program for Mac or windows where I can input Ir codes to convert to ccf?
(Is philips pronto edit/professional right?)

2. Or can I give 5 codes to someone that can convert them for me?

I have litterelly searched the web for conversion tools but can’t find anything. Maybe Im using the wrong terminology. Or are CCF codes always philips pronto?!

Thanks for any help
Ps: smart home system is Loxone

Yes, Philips Pronto is simplest.

IrScrutinizer is the goto program these days:
[Link: harctoolbox.org]

The code in post 1 is a CCF code. It is a SONY15 protocol, device 15, function 47

This is the IrScrutinizer generated code:
0000 0068 0000 0010 0060 0018 0030 0018 0030 0018 0030 0018 0030 0018 0018 0018 0030 0018 0018 0018 0018 0018 0018 0018 0018 0018 0018 0018 0030 0018 0030 0018 0018 0018 0018 0330

Does IRscrutinizer take a hex code and save it into a CCF file?  Because that's what the original poster is asking for.

How in the world does any smart home automation manufacturer not have Sony discrete codes in their library natively?

I use ProntoEdit 4 when this kind of thing comes up.

Find the instructions for using ProntoEdit 4, which I think are on this site somewhere, and install PE4 on your computer.

Create a new file.
Add a button to a page. Put a label on it.
Get your Pronto Hex command and Ctrl+C it.
Double click on the button you made.
I forget the exact detail here, but you can get a blank window in which to COPY the Pronto Hex.
Save it.
Save the file.
You now have a ccf file with one command in it.
A good answer is easier with a clear question giving the make and model of everything.

Hello
Thanks
Can’t wait to try both prontoedit 4 and IRscrutinizer.

I have the Loxone surface touch so the idea is to use it to set different modes on the tv, receiver, projector, shades, lights.

I might get back Incase I fail :)

What's the sound of one hand clapping?
All the Loxone customers showing their appreciation.


By the way, I just noticed your title refers to discrete IR codes. I think you mean "codes in Pronto Hex."

That seems to be the thrust of what you're asking about.

A discrete code is one that only does one thing. You might say "they all do that!" But a POWER command is not a discrete command, it's a toggle command. You push POWER and the device turns on or turns off, depending on its current state. POWER ON and POWER OFF (usually called STANDBY these days) are discrete commands: If the device is on, POWER ON does nothing. If it's off, POWER ON turns it on. Likewise, if it's on, POWER OFF turns it off (okay, puts it in standby). If it's off, POWER OFF does nothing.

There's another kind of command, which has two actual commands to do the same thing, and alternates between them. It toggles between two commands. I don't remember exactly how to differentiate between that and the toggle command I described above. It's been years since I've seen one, but you just know someone is going to bring it up here!

Many many years ago I wrote the original paper on the Philips Pronto IR code format. There is a program I developed called IRGEN on my web site (www,the-gordons.net) that will produce Pronto Hex and several other IR formats. It works from a protocol file that describes the format of the IR stream so the program can build it with no original source.

At the web site go to the link to programs on the bottom left and when on that page go to the bottom for the IR stuff.
