Major file area update...
This week we’ve finally managed to verify and upload every file that has been submitted in the past few months. There are now over 8800 entries in our entire file area database, not including discrete codes!
First up is the classic Philips Pronto area, covering the TS-1000, TSU2000, TSU6000, RU890, RU940, RU970, RC5000, RC5000i, RC5200, RC9200, RAV-2000 and CHAD. Pronto NG owners, don’t forget that you can import CCF files too! New or updated color or black and white system CCFs are now available by:
Frank Del Favero
Other file updates include channel logos from Steve McNally, Craig Keightley and “Eichi0815”, a mass IR format converter called Vert from Tony Marona, and an interesting file from Eigeny Oulianov. He’s the guy responsible for the unique FontRep and ImgRep utilities, which can be used by power users to change the look of the default Pronto user interface – something that isn’t normally possible. He’s also written a rather in-depth look at Pronto IR formats, but his most recent release is a CCF file designed to integrate with Crestron RF systems.
This file will work on any RF-enabled Pronto-based product such as the TSU6000, RU970, RC5200, RC9200, USR-5RF (CHAD) and imported for Pronto NG models TSU3000, TSU7000, RU950, RU980. It provides through-the-wall control of Crestron’s RF-based control systems including models CNRFGWA-418, CNRFGWA, MC2W, ST-CP and STI-CP. Turn your Pronto classic into the equivalent of a Crestron MT-500!
But that’s not all... if you have a ProntoNG and an IR-based Crestron CNIRGW, he’s got a new specially modified PCF to work with that device’s codes, which are too fast for normal learning and reproduction. If you’d like to upload something, click here.
