Sounds interesting... Will definitely check this out because I am definitely not spending $90 on additional equipment just to save a few keypresses. It's a shame Panasonic could not make it easier to access the individual settings with a remote like a Harmony.

I used to have a Harmony remote many moons ago and I thought you could create crude macros. Could you just copy what I have above ? You would have to assign the PJ Function Key to LENS memory function.

I will give it a try but I am kinda interested in this iRule approach as well. I'm guessing iRule is similar to a Harmony?

I got it working with the Harmony! I created a sequence button for each memory position using the sequence you posted above and it worked like a charm!

Of course, I tweaked the delays a bit but after some trial and error, I can switch back and forth from 16:9 (memory slot 1) and 2.35 (memory slot 2). Tomorrow I will save slots for 2.39/2.40 ratios and create the sequence macros for them.

You are a life saver, brother! Thanks! [emoji106]
