I admire your thinking Vicky. But these remotes have megabytes of memory. Even if something like blinking out one bit at a time were an option, it would take a lifetime.

Not a lifetime, we are no longer just counting blinks of an LED, think widget.

At the end of the day, it's a TV remote that was discontinued 5 years ago, not a potential cure for cancer. I'm very grateful for what we have. It was a massive amount of effort to get this far. Just isn't worth the effort for the 5 people on the planet that would ever use toadtog, IMHO.


And that is the unfortunate thing here, the fact that extender use has fallen by the wayside. Extenders caused me to relapse and become a JP1 addict again. I had kicked the habit, and then I needed an extender to get enough space. And then Elizabeth showed me that an extender could be so user friendly.

If I didn't have a boxes and boxes of remotes that have extenders, I'd be digging into this.... But there are plenty of people out there that do need to have an extender. If one of them has talent and determination we could have an extender for an obsolete remote. I know when I wrote my extenders it was very disappointing that so few other people downloaded them. But in the end, I did them for myself. I need the extender to function.

Since this had now morphed into a discussion of ToadTog on the NEVO, I'll throw out a few ideas (which I think may be just as impossible as an extender).

1) If, from within a macro, if it were possible to reassign macro functions, then the Discrete On = toggle power, then redefine itself to a null macro and reassign the Discrete Off to be as defined in the next sentence. The Discrete Off = toggle power and redefine itself to null macro and redefine Discrete On to its initial state as above.

2) On the NEVO, if a macro could set the current activity, the activities could be identical except in one activity the Discrete On = toggle power, swap the activity and Discrete Off = null. The other activity would be the opposite, Discrete On = null and Discrete Off = toggle power, swap activity.

3) On the NEVO, if a macro could set select the current device, the devices could be identical except in one the Discrete On = toggle power, swap the current device and Discrete Off = null. The other device would be the opposite, Discrete On = null and Discrete Off = toggle power, swap the current device.

4) On the NEVO, if a macro could do anything that redefines something about an activity, some variation of the above could be devised.

As I said, I believe that all of these ideas are just as impossible as an extender, but maybe I am wrong and something could be worked out.
