Extended OARUSBO4G double keypress in combo macro?
Is it possible to use a double keypress or ling keypress in a combo
mode (watch TV or watch movie) macro when using the OARUSBO4G extender?

The sequence

ComboCancel;Hold;DVD3;DCSave;Shift-Phantom6;DCRestore

Executes “Shift-Phantom6” which is a device specific macro on DVD3 when
I assign it to a watch TV macro. If I replace the DSM with a double keypress
it doesn’t execute either leg.

I don’t normally need either the setup or copy/learning modes.

I use long keypress/double keypress on device buttons to select activities I have ten
devices/activities and I would like to avoid using double shifts.

I can post the rmir file but it is complex (70 special functions).

I have a URC-6440 and when extended, its use is the same as the OARUSB04G. You can't nest a Long or Double key press inside another macro. It's quite specific in the instructions.

It might be better to post what you are trying to achieve, and I'm sure someone will be able to help you.

As a general principle, I define a macro that does the desired function. Then that macro can be invoked from the long or double press of a key, or from within another macro. That should achieve what you want to do.

Here's a suggestion: Change shift-phantom6 to its short key function only, and top and tail it like this:

DCSave;<old shift-phantom6 short press>;DCRestore

Create new xshift-phantom6 (or anywhere else for that matter):

DCSave;<old shift-phantom6 long press>;DCRestore

Now on the Combo key you can create a double-key-press:

[Single]:ComboCancel;Hold;DVD3;shift-phantom6; [Double]:ComboCancel;Hold;DVD3;xshift-phantom6;

I can confirm that, with the 6640 at least, DKP works on the combo keys, I've not tried LKP there because the remote uses it for something else.

I think I already found what you are suggesting.

I deleted the watch TV macro on the macro pane
I then created a double key press on the special
functions pane device button “none” key “watch TV”.
The double key press appears to be working as expected

The key is not using the macro pane for the combo macro
