I'm trying to create a very basic ccf for my 4 zone first-floor system. I have 3 USB DACs connected to my computer, and want to access the mediabridge pagegroup from the default netremote ccf from my new main homepage. How do I copy this? Every combo of copy/paste I tried on-screen failed to bring it in. Is this not possible? Thanks!!

to be a little more specific, i want to have my own custom main page and when i click on a button have it link to what I would link to from the "listen to music" button on default netremote. Thanks for any help!!!

Did you try right clicking on the page group in question and selecting "Copy", then switching to the other CCF and right-clicking on "Page Groups" and selecting "Paste"?

Rob,

That is what i tried to do at first. Restarting the computer solved the problem. Thanks for the reply tho! Now I cant get usb-uirt to work at all with netremote. It works with girder, so i know it works. I learn the command, that goes well, then I turn off learn mode and click the button and the light lights up on the usb-uirt but my devices dont respond. They do, however, from girder. I really hope I don't need to buy girder just to get the usb-uirt to work....i thought netremote would be sufficient for this. Any help would be appreciated....I think im going to post in the usb-uirt forum. Thanks!

It should work - how far away from the USB-UIRT did you hold the remote when you learnt the command? I generally recommend holding it quite close e.g. about 1 inch away.

Um? Could you explain that? What does a MMORPG have to do with anything?

I don't know if this maters, but I was trying to copy a NRD 1.0 format page into a CCF built with NRD format 1.1(rev 1.4).

Ah, that may be the issue - does it work for you if you first convert the 1.0 CCF into 1.1 format?

No it still doesn't work after converting the "copy from" CCF to the latest format. The paste button is grayed out. I can copy/paste the contents of a page (even from an old format), but not the whole page.

I've only found one circumstance so far where this doesn't work, and that's where the CCFs are different sizes. e.g. copying from a 480x640 CCF to a 1280x1024 one

Ahhh.. that would explain it as the page I'm trying to copy is smaller. I remember this working in the past. The smaller page would paste in the upper left corner and the out-of-bounds area of the larger CCF (what I pasted into) would be blank.

Okay, I'll see what I can do to fix this - can you confirm that it works if you first convert the smaller file to a larger size?

Okay, I'll see what I can do to fix this - can you confirm that it works if you first convert the smaller file to a larger size?I did this and copying pages still does NOT work. However, copying an entire page group does (I had not tried this before). Once I have copied the entire page group, I am now able to copy individual pages.
----edit---------
That figures... right after i post, it starts working. I closed the CCF I'm trying to paste into and re-opened it. Now copy-n-paste of individual pages seems to work!

Now that is weird!
