Question Is there any way to create a new code to change channel.
For example: If I want a button to change channel to 354, I would make a macro to enter 3, then 5, then 4.
Is there a code for the number 354, and would it work this way.
Hope this is not a far out question.
Thanks

What model remote are you using and are you using the extender?

The best way to accomplish something similar to what you described is using a "Device Specific Macro". Those are much simple with an extender than without.

Though maybe what you want is just a fav channel list feature working in a sensible way (as it does with some extenders) rather than the stupid way it is built-in on models that have that feature.

I have the RS15-2116 remote. I use the JP1 Connector with great results. I've tried the extender for the 2116 but I can't understand how to use it. I've read all the text files that come with the extender but can't make anything work. Had a hard time with just the JP1 connector when I first started and now do quite good with it. Will just have to keep working on the extender unless you have a magic trick up your sleeve for me.
Thanks again

If you're asking if there's an EFC that you can program to do the "3-5-4" channel change, the answer is no. A macro is your only option.

I was hoping there was a way to add EFC's 3,5 and 4 together to make EFC for 354. Sure would make a faster button responce. Anyway, thanks for all your inputs. Back to the drawing board.

The extender can transmit a macro or DSM much faster than the remote without an extender can transmit a macro. Maybe that will be too fast for the the device receiving the digits. If you don't need to slow it down for the device, I think you'll find it acceptable speed to feel like good button response.
