Hi guys,
I love my Mx-880 but I cannot seem to get it to reliably turn my Xbox 360 on & off in a macro. I have tried adjusting the Repeats from 3 to 7. Sometimes it works / other times not. (point and pray -ha) I typically use a .1 delay between commands. (that ok?) I am using this as an RF command with sensor positioned right on IR sensor. Once the Xbox is on, the remote controls it perfectly. Quite frankly, when hit the Xbox Pwr as a single command, it seems to work reliably so the issue is probably with the macro (I am guessing)


Could you offer me a tip to get it reliably working? (thank you)


Using Mx880/Rfx-250/Mrf-300 (everything else seems to work great in RF)


Thanks,
Ross

Here is the actual CCP file if you care to look at it. Again, sometimes in pwrs on with Macro, sometimes not. (and the Xbox macro that Pwrs Off is not reliable either) - To clarify, It works reliably with everything except the Xbox 360 Power Off


Thank you!!

The 360 can be picky. I solved it by simply sending the Power On and Power Off command twice in a row after a short delay. Sending On or Off twice does no harm to the macro execution.
