Tried this, and it works
. Then I tried to use a Guide button definition from the factory DB, in my configuration... did not work, no effect at all. Then I pasted your Guide code directly into the button in my config, instead of referring to my 'learned' database definition; that also works.
So my problem is solved, but it doesn't answer the question of why that specific code in my learned DB device does not work, when all the others do.
Thanks for your help!

Being a programmer and geek, I just like to know what the code behind each command is, no other reason.
However, since I discovered in my experiment mentioned above, I can't rely on the codes in the Philips database to work. To be fair, I didn't try more than one Tivo codeset from the DB, and I'm too lazy to try others, but the fact that the one didn't work is informative (in a bad way).
