Newbie editing netremote 2 ccf, ir duration when linking actions
I`m using netremote NetRemote-Pro-Suite-220.127.116.11, on a Dell Axim 51v, and using it in direct IR.
Now I`m trying to configure one of the frontpage buttons I`ve called "Play xbox360". I`m using action list, and put in actions for buttons like: TV power on, Reciver ON, Video 2ch, Xbox ON. (My receiver starts, but neither TV or xbox)
1. My problem is that my TV and Xbox 360 need to have their button pressed for aprox 2-3s to start. Where can this time be set?
2. There is this slide in menus called device and Go to, I want to change the size and layout, but I cannot find any way to view them as I can view pages.
"devicesframe" is only made out of frames, how do I view and edit the content of these frames.
3. Randomly when I use netremote, I get a system error from WM5 that there is a problem with gwas.exe. I press don`t send and keep on going. But it is bit enoying.
4. Every second time I choose load ccf for tools menu, everything stops, and I have to "soft reboot"
Hope for help soon especially with question nr 1
Looks like a great product
ccf attached as zip

Hiawata - why does it take 2 - 3 s to have the TV and XBox 360 start? Did you learn the IR codes from NetRemote or did you get the IR codes via RemoteCentral?
For # 2, if you find the frame in the tree called "Device frame", it is set to a negative value. With it selected on the tree, change the X value to 0, and then you can see the buttons.
I'll try your attached CCF to see if I can replicate 3 and 4, as I also have an Axim x51v.

Some TVs are like that unfortunately, ie you have to hold down the power button on the original remote for ages for them to power up.

Like rah99 says, this is a original setting on my tv, I need to press the button for a long time for the tv to start, with the original remote too. I have learnt the codes.
What is default duration for a push of a button in actionlist, and is this time editable?

What TV is it? There may be a discrete power on code that doesn't require this

Its a Panasonic TH-42PV60E , I live in Norway so its a Eurpeen version, so it might go under another name in usa.
I have googled for IR but havent found any. And there are some codes for Panasonic on remotecentral, but I read that a german had tested those with no result

It might be worth trying the discrete power on from here :-

Thank you, I found some codes worth using, descrete on, descrete off, disabling my 2-3 s power on, and also direct PC.

So now I have to find some other IR-codes to my "360", then I`ll might have my macros working.
I`ll let you know my progress...
I already got som TV macros working, with Direct PC as a starting point.

NetRemote will fire the entire IR code. So if the code is 3 seconds long, it will fire it.
Otherwise if it has to repeat, holding the button down should work, but it has to be the only IR code in the button, so a macro with repeat won't work.

Having another problem, after pushing "wakeup" button, it takes 3-5 s before any remote control buttuns are working, is this normal?
BTW upgraded to 18.104.22.168
Attching newest ccf verison:
