I'm using the Common v3.02 extender and RMIR.

I've assigned the LKP to DVD pip-ch+ key.
Short sends TV:1 key and long sends CBL:1, so I can see the each device LED flash when the commands are sent to observe the time delay.

The LKP duration setting makes no difference what it's set to but the LKP function itself does work. A short press sends the TV command and if I hold it, the CBL command is sent (very short duration delay).

Any clues as to what may be happening here?

Thanks in advance,
Bob

To me, it sounds like it is working right. What did you expect to happen and what did it do different from your expectation?

I expect that when I enter 4 for the delay, I should have to press the key for longer than 3.04 secs for the 'long' command to be sent.

It seems as if the shortest time (or shorter) is always used, regardless of the duration setting.

Ah, I see. The number is not in seconds. All I can say is that a value of 8 will be twice as long as a value of 4, but you will need a number larger than 4 to notice much of a delay at all. I think a value of 8 is around 1 second, at least on my OARP05S. It may vary by remote.

You're right, it's not. But it doesn't correspond to the values given in the extender readme file either.

Your delay for 8 is about the same as mine (RCA RCRP05B) and a delay value of 15 is about 2.25 sec, as near as I can measure with a watch.

I have to admit that I never timed the delay values when I wrote the JP1.3 extenders and copied the text in the read me directly from the URC 9960B01 extender that I used as the base for the port.

I did, however, time the pause values in the pause protocol to make it reasonably accurate.

If someone wants to go through the trouble to time the delay values on LKP and send them to me, Ill incorporate them into the document.

Sorry for any confusion that this caused. I generally just increase the value by 1 until i get the right "feel" in my remote.

Thanks for the clarification, Bill and I agree that the Pause values look good.

Using and RCA RCRP05B remote, I measured the LKP delays using a scope as follows:
1 = 0.14 sec
2 = 0.27
3 = 0.40
4 = 0.52
7 = 0.94
8 = 1.1
11 = 1.5
15 = 2.0

I find that 4 or 5 gives me the button feel that I like.

Thanks

I'll update the read me next time I post a new update to the extender
