Hmmm... how to write this without seeming whiney or ungrateful....
Although I have two JP1 remotes, the cable, IR.exe and KeyMap-Master.XLS -- plus access to all the help and help docs at hifi-remotes.com and other sites -- I find it all a bit out of reach.
It's not that I don't appreciate programming. If my life depended on it, I could probably code my way out of a wet paper bag, and maybe even a phone booth. But despite all the hours put in by the people who wrote IR.exe and KeyMap-Master and dozens or hundreds of support files, it all seems like it's just a helluva lot harder than it should be. And as I painfully try again to understand one of the how-to docs, I just keep thinking, that I'd rather pay someone to just do it for me. I'd send someone a raw IR.exe learned file (the one that's all hex gibberish and not the one that's mostly commas and text gibberish that KM-Mstr.xls uses) from my source remotes, plus a description of what I want for my remote (in this case a RS 15-2116) plus $50.00 and get back a custom made IR.exe loadable file. It's not that bad to use KM-Mstr and IR if you can find a source definition file on the JP1 Yahoo site, but if you can't then the process of going from:
1-- original remote to learning remote,
2-- learning remote to IR.exe
3-- IR.exe to KeyMap-Master
4-- massage the data
5-- KeyMap-Master to IR.exe
6-- IR.exe to smart remote
just gives me a migraine -- especially steps 3, 4 and 5. It's like this is back in the days when guys -- smart guys -- built their own PCs in their garages, wrote or modfified the OS and wrote their own programs.
How'd I do on the not sounding whiney or ungrateful thing?
Thanks fo ryour patience.
