Also, can you configure the main LCD screen to display your favorite buttons in any order you like?
thanks again - huge help for a Noob here.
On the "Change behaviour of buttons" page you should have 2 sections. The top section is for the "Hard" buttons on the remote...buttons like "PLay", "menu" etc.
The bottom section is for the LCD "soft" buttons. These are the commands that are listed in the LCD for the given activity. The first column is the label that appears on the LCD screen, and the remaining columns are the functions that are assigned to that label/button. These functions are grouped by the device the command is to be sent to. Note you can have one button send commands to multiple devices.
To delete an LCD button, just delete its label in the first column.
You can re-order the LCD commands just by re-typing the labels in the order you want, and selecting the appropriate commands from the drop-down menus. Note that commands will always be grouped by device, so you can't reorder exactly as you want...hopefully Logitech will change this in the future.
For your second question, a discrete is a command that only does the action intended. ie a discrete "Power On" command will turn the device on if it is off, but will have no effect if the device is already on.
In your case look through the device mode commands for something like "PowerOn" and "PowerOff" (as opposed to "PowerToggle"). If these commands exist(and work properly) you can tell the remote to send these commands with the "Power Options" setup.
If you don't have discrete power commands, you can sometimes make up your own discretes by assigning "Play" as the power on command, and "Play" followed by "PowerToggle" as the power off command. This depends on your DVD player...only way to find out is to try.
Failing this, your best bet is to press the power button on the DVD player after you have loaded the disk, so the player is off when you press the "Watch DVD" button.
