I have created a new 8910 file using the 8910X3-empty file as the template (this has the extender stuff preloaded), defined the Macros to display custom message when a device is selected, but it still displays the standard messages in the LCD

Appreciate your help in troubleshooting / identifying where I'm going wrong

Thanks

It's a while since I programmed my 8910 (I use 8820s now) but I think you need to add SET_LCD as the last step in the device-button macro prior to calling the Custom Mode Name.

I opened an old copy of one of my 8910 extender IR files, stripped out my stuff and added your stuff:

Actually, SET_LCD displays the setup code, as in an unextended
remote.

What you want to do is define a ModeName special protocol
function on a key. Put this key in your macro instead of
SET_LCD.

Looking at your IR file, it seemingly should work.

Try assigning just the Custom Mode Name function directly to a non-device button with no other commands (like M1 instead of shift-CBL) and see if it works. Then, if it works, incrementally increase the complexity and see when it breaks.
