I'm having a hard time to make my macro work with an Atlas 1056 and extender 2.11.

I have just started to learn the extender, so I may be missing something...

Here is my macro to turn on devices:

B[blue] = CBL;Phantom1;VCR;Phantom1;TV;Phantom1

Phantom key 1 is associated with a Discrete On command.

Nothing happen when I press the blue key on my remote.

Ok I got it working.I forgot to activate the extender.
I also modified my macro for this:

B[blue] = X_CBL;Phantom1;X_VCR;Phantom1;X_TV;Phantom1


It's much faster now.

Is my macro ok?
What is the X for exactly?

CBL will simulate pressing the CBL key. If your original macro were on the CBL button, since it starts out with CBL the result would be an infinite loop continually calling the CBL button.

X_CBL just selects the CBL as the current device (and sends no commands). That is how the remote knows to send the phantom1 for first the CBL and then phantom1 for the VCR and then phantom1 for the TV in your corrected macro.
