I want to create a macro which does the following
"enter, delay number of seconds, down, down , enter"
Do I have to install an extender? If so is Jp1.3 extender 3.03 the correct one to install?
Thanx

You can certainly add the extender if you wish. But there are other ways to get delays.

- Add dummy commands
- Use the Pause protocol

I would start with the latter and see if that does what you want. You would add a new device and choose the Pause protocol. Then make a few functions with different durations.

If you decide to use the extender, just go with the latest version. With the extender you enter the exact durations in RMIR rather than in the device upgrade. But the extender is much more complex, so you have a lot of other macros to write just to make the remote functional again. There is a learning curve.

Couple of issues.

First, a value of 160 is 10 seconds. You should have used 16 for 1 second.

Second, you assigned the Pause device to your CBL button. So now all the CBL device can control is your one pause function. Change your CBL code on the main tab back to the correct cable device setup code to regain control of your cable box.

After you fix that, make a new keymove for CBL phantom2 and pick the Device Upgrade for your Pause device and pick your phantom2 function.

May be easier to start with your old config, add the pause device, DO NOT assign it to a device button, then add the above keymove.

If you tell my your correct cable setup code, I can fix it for you.

The above is the one I describe in the previous sentence.

I've replaced your file linked above with my version that includes the correct keymove.
