Edmund, what you say about device keys and macros sounds promising! I'm not sure I fully understand the programming steps for a device-key macro though. Would you please take me through the steps to program the following macro? When I push (and hold) the DVD device button, I want the R7 to do this sequence, which gets me setup to watch a DVD: TV-Input-Input-Input-Audio-0-DVD note: the first 4 strokes set my TV to the DVD input, the next 2 set my audio receiver to the CD input, and the last one readies the remote to control the DVD player that is always already turned on. Can this macro be programmed into the Gamer? When you give me the commands, put those pauses in for me that you mentioned. THANKS EDMUND!
