0000 0067 0000 000d = number of burst pairs = 13 (dec)

0060 0019 0030 0018 0030 0018 0030 0018 0018 0018 0018 0019 0018 0018 0030 0018 0030 0018 0018 0018 0018 0019 0018 0018 0018 03f4 = 13 burst pairs

I don't know how long your code has to be. But you have to add 13, to the fourth hex word, for each codesequense you add. And add the codesequense.
If you dubble the code it will look like:

0000 0067 0000 001a 0060 0019 0030 0018 0030 0018 0030 0018 0018 0018 0018 0019 0018 0018 0030 0018 0030 0018 0018 0018 0018 0019 0018 0018 0018 03f4 0060 0019 0030 0018 0030 0018 0030 0018 0018 0018 0018 0019 0018 0018 0030 0018 0030 0018 0018 0018 0018 0019 0018 0018 0018 03f4

I have NO idea how to input all the numbers in the previous reply. I have found simply learning commands by the "point and shoot" method to be all I've required - so far. However, I too need to have my Pronto send a learnt code for about 2 seconds - this to fire up my Panny Viera TV. The TV remote on/off button has to be held down until the red led turns green before it's ON. I want to do this in a power on macro and I would have thought the Pronto could be programmed to do this - but how?

You have to extend the IR code. I'm sure if you post the command you want to extend here, someone will do it for you. However you will need to post the code data.

You may want to also have a look in the NG forum or the Pro Forum as this has come up before there as well.

Finally, you resurrected a 9 year old thread. Not sure why but your subject likely warranted a separate thread.

Lyndel,
I used to wonder about that. Then I googled something and google fed me a five year old RemoteCentral thread. THAT is how it's done!

Loftboy,
we do seem to get irritated here when someone adds a new note to a thread that's so old that the original posters and repliers have probably all gone into other professions by now.

This is the Pronto Classic Forum, but you did not mention your Pronto's model number. I can give you a procedure to create a working impersonation of a long command if your remote is the right model. What is it?
A good answer is easier with a clear question giving the make and model of everything.

How did I ressurect a 9 yr old thread? - I just followed the link that you gave me Lyndell - I didn't notice its age (or the fact this may be seen as bad form!!). Also, I DID start a new thread, but haven't had a solution posted - until I ressurected the 9 yr old thread! So, moving swiftly on!
Ernie - thankyou very much for your offer. I'm afraid I have no experience of code entry, and so your procedure will have to include the basics (sorry). The models of remote I'm working with are - Marantz RC5000i and RC9200

If you've learnt in the Viera code for Power On, even though it doesn't work, if you click on the code within Pronto Edit you will see a series of numbers not dissimilar to what has been posted above, copy and paste your codeset and post them in this thread.

OK, so I've had a look, and in the advanced menu, I have access to 5 different ways to display the code - RC5, RC 5x, RC6 mode 0, RC mode 6A and RC-MM - which one do you need?!
PS - Is there a way to subscribe to this thread and get instant Email notification of a reply?

What's the software you're using?

this is a code that I've used for ages for the Vieras

0000 0070 0000 0032 0081 0040 0010 0010 0010 0030 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0030 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0030 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0030 0010 0030 0010 0030 0010 0030 0010 0030 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0030 0010 0030 0010 0030 0010 0030 0010 0030 0010 0010 0010 0030 0010 0AC3

Loftboy,

The RC5, RC6, etc formats will do you no good as they are internal representations of codes that cannot be handled by raw '0000' pronto hex. If the code that makitamark posted above does not work try this....

0000 0070 0000 0064 0081 0040 0010 0010 0010 0030 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0030 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0030 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0030 0010 0030 0010 0030 0010 0030 0010 0030 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0030 0010 0030 0010 0030 0010 0030 0010 0030 0010 0010 0010 0030 0010 0AC3
0081 0040 0010 0010 0010 0030 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0030 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0030 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0030 0010 0030 0010 0030 0010 0030 0010 0030 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0030 0010 0030 0010 0030 0010 0030 0010 0030 0010 0010 0010 0030 0010 0AC3


Or this derivation...

0000 0070 0032 0032 0081 0040 0010 0010 0010 0030 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0030 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0030 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0030 0010 0030 0010 0030 0010 0030 0010 0030 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0030 0010 0030 0010 0030 0010 0030 0010 0030 0010 0010 0010 0030 0010 0AC3
0081 0040 0010 0010 0010 0030 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0030 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0030 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0030 0010 0030 0010 0030 0010 0030 0010 0030 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0030 0010 0030 0010 0030 0010 0030 0010 0030 0010 0010 0010 0030 0010 0AC3


In both cases, I have doubled the data using copy/paste and adjusted the one-shot or repeat pair counts. For a better idea of what I did if you are interested, you can have a look at Barry Gordon's excellent document "Pronto Hex IR Format" located in the User Documentation Section of the Classic Pronto Files Area of the Files Forum.

With regard to post about other thread, my apologies as I did see your original thread. What I guess I was expecting was a post back to the other thread.

Best of luck

Many thanks Guys.
Unfortunately, I still have no clue as to how to employ this data! The software I'm using is "Touch screen setup version 2.0.4". I've only ever used it to create CCFs from learned codes.........

In Touch Screen Editor When you click on the button that you are having problems with (power on), there is an option 'view ir'. click this and you will see the Hex representation of the code, this is the Hex we want you to Post here.
Do that first.

OK - think I'm getting somewhere! There is NO view IR button, but I've found if I double click on the "learned" icon for the code in the editor I get what you are looking for - eureka!! - here is the code

0000 0070 0000 0032 0080 0041 0010 0010 0010 0030 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0030 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0030 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0030 0010 0010 0010 0030 0010 0030 0010 0030 0010 0030 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0030 0010 0010 0010 0030 0010 0030 0010 0030 0010 0030 0010 0010 0010 0030 0010 0ab0

Ok, It appears you are not using Discrete IR codes.
You should be.
Discrete IR are seperate codes for each action.
Delete the Power button you have.
Make up a new button for Power ON and use this Hex code
Power ON

0000 0071 0000 0032 0080 003F 0010 0010 0010 0030 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010

0010 0030 0010 0010 0010 0030 0010 0A98

Make up a new button for Power OFF and use this Hex code

0010 0030 0010 0010 0010 0030 0010 0A98

Once you've done this try the buttons and let us know

"Discrete IR are seperate codes for each action." - Yes - this I DO understand!

"Ok, It appears you are not using Discrete IR codes.
You should be."
- and I would be for sure - if the remote had them on it! - This would be SO much better in a macro. I was not aware that discretes were available - How did you get hold of them?

I will endeavour to enter your codes later and report back

Thanks Again!

Discretes are available for many products and certainly for your Panasonic TV, a quick search on this site will reveal whether or not your devices have them or not.
The Marantz remote is capable of using these Discretes, you just have to find them and know how to implement them.
