I'm hoping to replace a bedroom MX-600 with an MX-780, and would like to be able to track the power state of my TOAD TV so it stays on when switching activities.  I started to program how it would work in CCP (no remote yet) and am stumped because I can add variables, but am not sure how to make use of them without an if/then. As background, I have a pair of MX-980s, so I'm familiar with CCP, variables, and if/then/else on those (although maybe I'm missing something there too).

I found this, so it seems like it can be done, but it still wasn't clear to me how:

Thanks!

RTFM. Only kidding. The whole macro is a variable. Look at the bottom of the macro and decide whether you want normal, variable or push and hold. You can alias macros and embed them within other macros.

"look at the bottom of macro.." what does that mean?

ah ha! I was totally ignoring that area. Great aliasing and embedding tip too.

Totally clear now, thanks!
