I have been programming the 8811 with JP1 using extenders since I wanted macros on device keys. Nice remote BTW. I think someone here made mention that you can do that without JP1 and extenders on 8910 and RS 2216? Is this true?

Did they really say "without JP1".

I don't have an 8910 or 2116 to test, but I'm pretty sure each of them can have macros on device keys without an extender, but not without JP1.

Do you really use just the macros-on-device-keys feature of the extender? There is so much the extender lets you do, that I'd think anyone who learned how to use it would find more that they want to use it for.

I don't believe the 8910 or 2116 have any other extender features built in.

The message I read didn't state. I have been doing some searches since and I know you can do it with a JP1 without extenders I believe. It's just the time you put into learning all the extenders and such if a device came with it built in that would be a big plus.

I do have macros on the device keys.

I don't know whether the 8910 (the one I have) can have macros programmed on the device keys. I do know that the Power key does not work in HT mode and can not be programmed without an extender. L:ast I checked, there was no extender available for the 8910. Boy, do I wish there was!

The 2116 can have macros programmed on the device keys without an extender, although you do need to use JP1 to program them. I don't know about the 8910.

I'll have to take a look at the 2216 in person. What info does the LCD provide in normal use? Does it show what device your in?

The LCD on the 2116 displays the time, the device mode (TV, DVD, etc) and the setup code (eg, 0614). During a macro you can see the device type/code changing as the macro sends signals to various equipment.

I bought a 2116 today and started playing with it. So far I like it better than the 8811. It has a nicer feel and I like the layout better. The backlighting is noisy however. They are both excellent remotes and you can't beat either of them for the price.
