When I had cable in my rented place the Moto box remote allowed me to program the Master on/off to turn off all the devices it was programmed for (eg on the Directv remotes rather than just Directv and TV it would also let me program AV1 and AV2 in any order if I wanted to).

Anyone managed to get a macro like this working on an RC64?

Secondly, I have my RC64 programmed for RF on my HR20 and HR21, my TV (with fixed TV input - thanks for the help in another thread) and my Sony audio box.

The HR20 and 21 both go to the TV via HDMI (now i can switch inputs on the TV) and both go to the audio box for DD. But I still have to use the audio box remote to switch inputs. Anyone know a way to get the RC64 to switch inputs? Can I "teach" it? Macro it somehow or does using the AV2 switch and TV Input button work?

Yeah I guessed as much.

I did like that Moto remote that allowed me to macro the power options.

But the audio input i knew was a lot for a remote, but just wondered if someone found something by accident.

I can live with sliding the switch over and power on and off the audio box or just having the second remote with me. At least I am down to 2 remotes from 4.
