So my problem is kinda complicated.

 

I'm trying to make the main button on the main page jump to the current activity. I have made a button that shows the status of the variable. However, the if/else function seems to be broken, because sometimes when the status of watch tv is true, it goes to the watch tv page as it is supposed too, however other times when it is true, it goes to the devices page which is set at the end of the macro only to occur if there is no current activity with a true status. 

 

So this is how I have set up the macro for the main button on the main page.

If(Variable(watch tv ON, true)
Jump(watch TV/Main Menu)
Else
If (Variable (Play xbox ON), True)
Jump(Play Xbox 360/Main Page)
Else
If(variable watch PC ON), True)
Jump watch PC/page 1
Else
Jump Devices/page 1

As I said. Sometimes when the indicator shows the Watch TV ON is True it will jump to the last Else of Devices/page 1. other times when it is true it will work. I'm not sure why this is but it is driving me nuts.   To top it off, after I go back to the main page, select play xbox, which sets variables to false for watch tv, and sets watch xbox variable to true, it will still then jump to the watch tv page, even though watch tv ON is false. 

 

Please help, I hope I don't have a defective remote. Is it in the programming or in the remote. I'll post my activity macros as well to show you how those change the variables, but as I said, I've used a status indicator on the remote to test what the actual true.false status is according the to remote, and those were the results. 

 

Jump ( Please wait macro/page 1)

alias (yamaha receiver/page 1/power on)

Alias ( tv on)

Var (Watch Blu Ray On = False)

alias (sony blu ray/main menu/off)

Jump (watch TV/main Menu)

Var (Watch TV ON = True)

Thanks for any help!!

There is a know glitch with non integer variables that has come up lately. This may have something to do with your situation. It has been a know issue on the 890 and 980 and may also be an issue with the 1200.
