So I have probed through about every MX-980 Post and could not find an answer for my questions.
Starting with the basics....I was a long time Harmony 880 user and just got fed up with it after having constant problems with them (On 7th one and its dieing), So I did some research and bought myself a MX-980. I have the updateable software, the expansion pack and the favorites add-on pack.
Here are my two questions:
1 - I programmed a macro to turn on my TV, Receiver and FiOs Cable box...I press the test button and all goes well! I then download it to the remote, hit the button and only the tv turns on. I see the IR activity light flash but only the tv comes on, so I rearrange the turn on sequence add some delay between on cues and still only the tv comes on! Keep in mind that no matter what it always works from the test button on the software.
2 - So lets say that I have pressed Watch, then FiOs Cable, the macros fire and I watch FiOs Cable for awhile, the wife then asks to Watch a DVD. Can or How do I program in the macro to turn off the cable box but keep the TV and Receiver on and switch inputs on the receiver. But lets say I now want to go back to FiOs Cable, so it fires DVD off, FiOs Cable box on, leaves the TV and Receiver on, and switchs receiver inputs. So on and So on....I'm looking for something similar to the way the activities work on the 880.
Do I need a MSC-400?
3 - How do I extend the amount of time a code is fired? (Simulate a press instead of a tap) I have increased the amount of repeats but still no luck
Please remember I am a nube to the URC stuff so take it easy on me! :-)
