Hi all...I just installed the extender for my 6131 (RobMod) and I need some help with the new ir.exe extender rdf (w/spc protocol tab)

Here's what I have:
All of my devices have been added manually or via RM 1.14
I have no keymoves setup yet
I have the standard macros that came installed with the extender for all device keys

Here's what I want to do:
1) Have a short keypress macro on each device button (e.g. short action just selects the device)

2)Have a long KP for each device (e.g. when I hold TV done for .20 seconds (or so) it sets the TV to component one ...I have discrete codes for my devices)

Question: How do I do this? Do I delete the canned macros and just use the spcl protocols tab and assign the short action in the short keys box and then define the long KP actions in the long keys box? And/Or should I set up the keymoves for all my discrete commands and then use the spcl prot tab only...do I need the normal macros at all with the new spcl prot tab?

Thanks

You'll still need the canned macros, or at least some version of them.

Using the DVD key as an example, the easiest way to set this up would be:

1) Set up keymoves for your discrete commands. For this example, let's say you put the command for the TV's DVD input on TV/Shift-1.

2) Create a LKP on DVD/XShift-DVD. Leave the short list empty. The long list would have something like: X_TV; Shift-1.

3) Append XShift-DVD to the end of the existing macro on the DVD button.

In this case, the short section serves the required function of doing nothing. The existing macro on the DVD button has already done everything needed to change the remote mode to DVD.

So the XShift-DVD will only execute if I hold the DVD key down for more than xxx, even though it's part of the DVD key macro?

Still having issues trying use the POWER LKP. Here's what I want to do:

1) Press power normally just turns on/off a device

2) Press power w/LKP turns everything off with discrete off codes (I have them)

-Thanks

No, the XShift-DVD always executes. Since the LKP is assigned to it, it determines what to do (nothing, or input select) based on how long you hold down the button.

You can use a similar technique here, but there are some subtle differences. First, select some other key for an LKP, like a phantom key or Shifted/XShifted button. I'll use TV/Shift-Phantom1 here as an example.

Next, program a macro (which makes this global) on the Power button that will execute the LKP button. Example: X_TV; Shift-Phantom1.

The short part of the LKP would be: X_Cancel; Shift-Power. The X_Cancel un-does the X_TV in the Power button macro; using Shift-Power (or XShift-Power) utilizes "shift-cloaking" to access the device's normal power command (see the extender readme).

The Long part of the LKP would be the list of buttons needed to do the "all off" stuff. If all of the commands won't fit, then program them in a macro on yet another button, and invoke that button in the Long part of the LKP.
