FYI. I do not know if this is common knowledge or not but there is a way to accomplish press and hold on the MX850 even though it is not an option in the software. Since the User Guide is not available to me either, I cannot tell if it is in there already. If you put a delay in first on a macro, then it creates a press and hold capability. For example, you can tap the button once and it will go to that device without transmitting the macro. If you press and hold the button, then the macro is triggered and transmitted. I thought that was pretty cool.

The programming manual is available from the "Files" section of this website and yes, the press-and-hold macro feature is mentioned there.

Thanks Mike. I am still new to the forum and learning where everything is. I downloaded the guide. Very helpful. This place is definitely an invaluable resource.

I have a MX-500 and am using on my boat. Standard TV and DVD player but the audio is a Clarion car audio unit. I need to press and hold the clarion power button when powering off the system. The power button also controls the input... AUX, CD, TUNER, etc. Press once when it's on and it will move to a new input, press and hold the power button and it turns it off.

I set up macro to power everything on and it works fine but when I use it to power everything off the clarion just switches to Tuner. I've tried holding the power button for the clarion when setting up the macro but it just won't work.

Is there a trick or should I rip it out and put in a home system? :-)

TIA

Sorry, but there's nothing you can do to simulate a held button in a macro with the MX-500.
