Looking for some advice from anyone familiar with this remote. I purchased this last week and had no issues setting it up except for the Master Power feature.

I'm trying to program this feature to power on/off 3 components, cable box, TV and AV Receiver with one push of the power button.

I've got the three components set up on the remote so I know it recognizes them and I can turn them on and off individually by choosing the appropriate device key but when I try to program the Master Power Feature I can only get it to work with one device, not all 3 at the same time.

I've read and re-read the instructions on page 16 of the manual and tried over and over but each time I program it only one device is turned on or off and I can change which device that is by which key I hit first when programming but it's not taking all 3 for some reason.

As a workaround I've programmed a macro to do this but I really would like to get it to work on the appropriate power button since that is a feature of the remote. I just can't figure out what I'm doing wrong.

Any help or insight is appreciated.

Did you try putting a macro on the master power key? Almost any key can hold a macro.

No edmund I haven't. I thought about it but the manual says macros can only be assigned to the 1 - 8 number keys.

I'll give it a shot anyway and report back.

Tried programming a macro to the power button and it didn't take, guess the manual was correct on that one.

Jakeman, please don't take this the wrong way, just curious because I have just bought one of these myself--

Here are the steps on page 16.

Programming the Master Power Key
1. Press and hold the P key for 3 seconds until the
LED indicator turns on and stays on.
2. Release the P key.
3. Press the device key you want to add to the
power macro.
4. Press the CH + key and the LED blinks.
5. The LED stays on.
6. Follow steps 3 and 4 to add more devices to
Master Power.
7. When all devices are added Press VOL + key to
enable Master Power.
8. Press the P key to complete the process.

I am just curious, after you enter the first device and press the CH+ key, the LED blinks and stays on, correct?
Then, when you press the next device key to add the second device and press the CH + key, the LED blinks again and then stays on, right?
The LED stays on until you press VOL + then P, when it goes off.

Just checking for the proper feedback from the device during the programming process.

I'm having the same problem and I have followed the steps many times. Does the order I add them in matter? Any help is appreciated!

Thanks
