Hi! I've recently gotten a couple of command sets, one in a Word document and one in an Excel document, where there's the command name followed by Pronto Hex.

I know I can created an empty ccf and copy and paste each Pronto Hex number into the command edit window. Is there an automated way to do this?

edit: added the following.

While we're at it, what's a csf file?

Here are three Sony BD Player commands the way I got them from someone here at RC:

Arrow Down
0000 0067 0000 0015 0060 0017 0017 0017 002F 0017 0017 0017 002F 0017 002F 0017 002F 0017 0017 0017 0017 0017 002F 0017 0017 0017 002F 0017 002F 0017 002F 0017 002F 0017 002F 0017 0017 0017 002F 0017 0017 0017 0017 0017 002F 01CE

Arrow Left
0000 0067 0000 0015 0060 0017 002F 0017 002F 0017 0017 0017 002F 0017 002F 0017 002F 0017 0017 0017 0017 0017 002F 0017 0017 0017 002F 0017 002F 0017 002F 0017 002F 0017 002F 0017 0017 0017 002F 0017 0017 0017 0017 0017 002F 01B6

Arrow Right
0000 0067 0000 0015 0060 0017 0017 0017 0017 0017 002F 0017 002F 0017 002F 0017 002F 0017 0017 0017 0017 0017 002F 0017 0017 0017 002F 0017 002F 0017 002F 0017 002F 0017 002F 0017 0017 0017 002F 0017 0017 0017 0017 0017 002F 01CE

To imagine this in an Excel file, think of Arrow Down in cell A1, then the hex in cell A2; Arrow Left in cell B1, its hex in cell B2, Arrow Right in cell C1, its hex in C2, etc.

Thanks.

second edit: improved the question.

A good answer is easier with a clear question giving the make and model of everything.

Have a look at IrScrutinizer (version 1.3). It does what you request. (And more...)

For some examples of the import function, see [Link: hifi-remote.com]

While we're at it, what's a csf file?

You probably do not mean this. Possibly you mean csv?

If you need more help or anthing is unclear, just ask.

A CSF file is a textual representation of a CCF file with the IR code data, etc inside. It is generated using Olivier De Couvreur's (yes, I think I spelled it correctly after all these years) wonderful CCFTools package that allows for compilation/decompilation of CCFs. (Classic Pronto Files Section and BTW, the old SuperNudelist and Sony CD SuperCharger relied solely on this tool).

With regard to your original question about spreadsheet code conversion.

What I used to do was to use MakeHex to generate a .hex file and then use IRPanels to create a CCF which I then renamed the function codes and gave them meaningful names.

This being said, IRScrutinizer is mentioned here and does all of this wonderfully in a few clicks provided you know the IR Make (Sony), Format (8, 15, or 20 bit), and the device/subdevice. It will generate all functions for you. I have started using this and will never go back to the older way.

The panacea of knowing Left Arrow is Function 23, for example, is a manual step and requires a tool. I.e. You must use Decode IR, IR Scrutinizer, or if you can do it visually, your eyes and brain.
