just saw this on Philips web site

Tips and Tricks for importing CCF files into the ProntoEdit NG editor

[Link: pronto.philips.com]

I found this very interesting

The IR-codes may also not be translated correctly due to different formats between the CCF and PCF files

and

When a learned IR-code is very long, the converted code will not be sent properly by the Pronto device

does this that the codes are saved in a different format but only displayed as Pronto hex in PENG?

If all my codes are learned, I didn't use the database, will this affect my set up? I have all my codes in panels for each device.

Willy, yes it will affect you if the ir codes are long enough. Grated not all of your codes are long, but I am sure some are.

But we really won't know until the remote come out and it is tested.

I would think it might even affect dirty codes

look at [Link: remotecentral.com] it changed the code slightly (I don't think enough to cause problems, but....)

that's for sure. But it does mean testing each code which is a pain

I just imported a TSU 2000 ccf in to PENG. I wanted to download in to the 3000 just to see how it converted and the 3000 locked up half way thru the download and was stuck on a screen with an error message that said invaild file cinfiguration.

After a few trys I as able to fix the problem by selecting "restore to default configuration" in the TOOLS pulldown.

I guess its back to the drawing board.

I ran into this problem converting a prontopro ccf to a pcf for our 3000's here. Very few codes followed over and even after reteaching all codes, they still would not function properly. Importing tsu2000 based ccf's have worked flawless for me so far. It's a shame though as PENG does a nice job of converting the color ccfs into 16color grayscale. Looks like it's back to custom gui design zone again. ;)

yes, i have also had no problem importing all of my tsu2000 ccf into the prontong software and then into the new pronto. I have only just begun to play with the remote tonight but have learned that when you cut and paste a device from one open file to another the codes are then lost and you are left with just the delays. looks like i may have to go back and build the macros again for all the channel icons. what happened to the cool merge feature of the old software...?

if you are talking about links (aliases) then that makes sense, the code they are referencing are in the other CCF
