iPronto seems to convert codes that I paste in

If any IR gurus out there can help me with this, I will be forever indebted. I keep pasting this discrete code into the view/edit IR window in iProntoedit. It is a clean code (discrete off) from a FocusEnhancements Centerstage-2 Video processor:

0000 006d 0022 0002 0156 00ab 0015 0015 0015 0015 0015 0015 0015 0015 0015 0015 0015 0015 0015 0015 0015 0040 0015 0015 0015 0040 0015 0040 0015 0015 0015 0040 0015 0040 0015 0040 0015 0015 0015 0015 0015 0015 0015 0015 0015 0040 0015 0040 0015 0015 0015 0015 0015 0040 0015 0040 0015 0040 0015 0040 0015 0015 0015 0015 0015 0040 0015 0040 0015 0015 0015 063c 0156 005f 0015 0e3d

For some reason when I close the windows....and later reopen them....the sequence appears as:

900a 006d 0000 0001 8076 9867

Is this correct? The reason I ask is that I'm having a really hard time getting IR reliability out of the iPronto so far.

Thanks in advance,
Harry

This is a prestored format as opposed to a learned format. In essence the iPronto recognized the learned pattern and matched it to one of its internally stored templates. It then replaced the learned pattern with a reference to the template. There is a paper in the Files section at this site that discusses all of the various templates and foramts that the pronto family uses.

hope that helps

I think I follow you. But after the pronto replaces the learned code with the one in its database...the code is unreliable...and works perhaps one out of three times I hit the button!!

What should I do??

thanks,
Harry

I can not answer that question. I do not know how to get it to override its internal data base if it can at all. I would suggest you call the iPronto help desk, but based upon the feedback I see here they are about as useful as ants at a picnic.

I only use a single IR format which is actually a very common one and always paste the code in. For some reason it always accepts it.

Looking at your pattern, it is one of the common ones. I call it the NEC with shorthand repeat format. It is used by pioneer and many others because there is a standard chip which receives and decodes it. try the following. Change it to one of the following.

Pattern a is a one time pattern with no shorthand repeat. You can use that for all cases where repeat is not desired such as poweroff.

Pattern (b) Is a repeat pattern which will work for one time or repeat because the full pattern will be repeated.

Pattern (c) has both the one time and repeat sections filled in.

Maybe the ipronto will not convert that to its internal format.

Let me know how you make out. If it keeps the learned pattern, but it is still unreliable, then the pattern is probably bad, or your IR signal is blocked, noisy etc.

Curious - Are you using a Plasma display? Plasma displays give off a lot of IR background noise which is often picked up along with the proper IR data and tends to drop the recognition rate (Kills signal to noise)
