As H1 newbie, I am proceeding with its tweaking on a slow but deliberate course. After having done several less than 5 keystroke sequences (some with learned IR - in Normal, not Custom), I'm now about to try to do a more than 5 keystroke sequence. But, before I do, I'd first like to check a few things out in order to get it right without too much frustration.

1. When adding several sequences to a "master" sequence (the sequences with more than 5 strokes)
a. If needing to use learned IRs, why must the learning be done with Raw IR learned inputs rather than with the regular learned IRs?
b. If no learned keys (key codes are already exist via Logitech's knowledge base) are being used for the more than 5 sequence, can I use codes that are already in the H1 software?

2. When in Custom, I note that for a key that was learned IR - regular, that "Analysed" was in one of its fields. I know that another descriptive word will appear when the key is IR learned in Raw (but I forgot its name - what is its name?) And just what do they mean?

You can't nestle sequences together, in other words, you can't create a 4 command sequence, and add as the 5 command another sequence.

I thought that I had read that this would be a workaround to having more than 5 keystrokes in a sequence (Post 175:

Well, can I do it or can't I do it?

You cannot create a sequence of sequences. You can, however, learn more than one actual command at a time and fool the harmony into thinking it's only one command. It takes patience and trial and error to get the timing right, and it has to be done in RAW mode. Without RAW mode when you learn a command it compares the learned command to the db and if it finds a match it uses the db command. RAW mode tells it to use the command as is. Do a search and there are several posts here dealing with that.

While speaking to a Logitech Level 2 on another issue, I had the chance to ack him about IR learning of more than one command at a time. He said that it could be done, but that there is a good possibility tha the key that is being learned to, could become corrupted in the process. But, that could be fixed by Logitech.

Any comments about this? I don't mind corrupting a key before my 90 day free help period is up, but I wouldn't fool around with this after that time.

I have had good luck learning up to 3 commands as one new command for both my 880 and One, I also have learned 5 commands as one now command for my 900 although that was a lot harder than either my 880 or One
