I've come to realize with this R40 that creating a device from scratch and creating my own command icons on it's screens and learning everything is actually quicker and yields more personalized results than testing dozens of useless codes in the hopes of finding one that actually mimicks the original remote's functions.

Yup. Definitely the way to go. I didn't even bother with the database.

The exact same thing has happened to me about 3 times now when re-learning a command that didn't originally take. And not only that, i've had my Tivo S3 mode working perfectly then yesterday i created my Onkyo 605 AVR device completely from scratch (did not use the default for this) and learned all the commands into the R40 and got it all working perfectly, then when i went back to Tivo mode the Slow command i had on the right skip key was now gone. So i re-learned it on the first try, but then i lost the command i'd placed on the Menu key so i had to re-learn that one as well. It happens kinda randomly.

I'm gonna delete the device and start from scratch. If the learned command(s) disappears again, there's a good chance that I'm returning the remote. I got a sweet deal on it but it's not worth keeping with that annoying quirk. I have a replacement offer from URC for my mx-850 that's pretty fair so I might just go back to that. After a week with the R40, I might prefer the layout, button sizes and tactile response of the 850.
