Hello, hopefully somebody with some patience can try to help a newbie out. I bought a used Pronto TS1000 to learn remotes codes and am very disappointed that the pronto doesn't use pronto Hex codes apparently. I have learned the codes I need and saved to a ccf file, the only option available that I can find. I have used pronto edit, CCF explorer, CCFdecoder and ccf dump. I have concluded that the code is actually NEC1 below is all the Info I can find for
Digit "1"
Protocol: NEC1
Device: 2
SubDev: 2
OBC: 1
EFC: 185
Function: Learned
Sequence: 1
TopFreq: 51.1746
Once: 34
Rept: 2

Same thing different format:

Button(00014E94)=41,50, size=38,38, "1", font=Pronto 14
IR Code: "Learned" 0000 0051 0022 0002 015A 00AE 0017 0014 0016 0042 0016 0014 0017 0014 0016 0015 0016 0015 0017 0014 0016 0016 0016 0014 0017 0041 0017 0014 0016 0015 0016 0015 0017 0014 0016 0015 0016 0015 0016 0041 0016 0015 0016 0015 0017 0014 0016 0015 0016 0015 0017 0014 0016 0016 0016 0014 0017 0041 0017 0041 0016 0041 0016 0041 0016 0041 0016 0041 0016 0041 0016 0738 015B 0056 0017 0EBB
freq=51.2KHz
(NEC):2.2:1 EFC=185
TimeBase=420 Prefix=16.1,-8.1 Zero=1.0,-1.0 One=1.0,-3.0 Suffix = 1.0,-86.0 Total = 196 Hold=16.2,-4.0,1.1,-175.6

From what I have read, it seems that using MakeHex is my answer. Are these IRP edits correct?

Device=2.2:1
Function= Learned
Protocol=NEC
Frequency=51175
Time Base=420
One=1,-3
Zero=1,-1
Prefix=16,-8.1
Suffix=1,-86
R-Prefix=16,-4
R-Suffix=1,-174
Default S=~D
Form=*,D:8,S:8,F:8,~F:8,_;*,_

I can't see any place to put the "EFC" which I think is important as it changes with every digit. The rest seems to remain the same.
Please help me with the correct entries for the IRP file. Thanks

The NEC1 .IRP should be,

Device=2.2
Function=0..255
Protocol=NEC
Frequency=38000
Time Base=564
One=1,-3
Zero=1,-1
Prefix=16,-8
Suffix=1,-78
R-Prefix=16,-4
R-Suffix=1,-174
Default S=~D
Form=*,D:8,S:8,F:8,~F:8,_;*,_


"Function=0..255" will generate all 256 possible codes for that Device No.. If you only what to generate OBC 1 you would enter "Function=1" (without quotes). See the ReadMe file in MakeHex for more info.

The EFC No. is not needed for MakeHex.

Even though your learnt code has a Frequency of 51175 Hz (may have been a bad learn) I would try them at the default 38000 Hz which is NEC1 protocol standard Frequency.

Using the MakeHex GUI with MakeHex makes it alot easier to use. You can also use IR Panels to generate a CCF file from the .HEX files from MakeHex but the "OUTPUT!" must be set to Decimal.


MakeHex GUI
Place in the same folder as Makehex.

CCF Panels (IR Panels)
Generate a CCF file from the HEX file created with MakeHex.
After creating a HEX file, open it with a text editor such as NotePad.  Use "Edit" "Select All" (or Ctrl +A), then "Edit" "Copy" (or Ctrl +C) to copy all the text.  Then start IrPanels and use Ctrl +V to paste the text into its window and press Generate CCF File. A CCF file will be created in the IR Panels Folder called IRCodesCreate (Don`t use the file called IRCodes Master) that you can use for testing in a Pronto Remote and some others.

For future reference, the FAQ has a set of tips for learning.
