Pronto Codes-->HTM-800

834 Views 4 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  jarmstrong
I am trying to find some IR codes (and hopefully a matching GML file for Girder) to load into my HTM-800.

I can only find 1 native file for the HTM, and there aren't many codes there...although I do have the GML.

I find several CCF files, but my MX-Editor will only pull the codes from one, and it too has very few, and no GML.

What versions of Pronto or CCF will work to pull over into the HTM-800?


I might mention that I have found that my MxEditor will read in Pronto Airboard CCF files (based on finding some listed for TT with 3 files, only one of which it would read...the airboard...and the pics are cryptic and I don't know what the commands do.)

You can only bring in commands from CCFs to MXEditor if the commands were originally learned or input via hex codes. They then show up as "Learned Data" in the Universal Browser. If the graphics make no sense, they were probably using the ProntoEdit fonts, which don't always show up properly in the Universal Browser. To see the graphics properly, download ProntoEdit from Remote Central and open the CCF in it.
Actually, the graphics look fine. But when I try to drag them over, noting comes over. It's like they aren't supposed to drag over.
If it doesn't say "Learned Data" in the bottom right window of the Universal Browser, they're not draggable.
I just put together a generated ccf file for the Airboard based on how the IR protocol appears to work. These keyboards appear to be inexpensive and there have been a lot of recent inquiries in various forums about them.

These haven't been tested on a Pronto, but this commands structure has been used successfully in the JP1/OFA group on a number of Lite-On/Airboard keyboards.

Here is information from the readme file:

Like many keyboards, the Airboard has a "make" command when the key is depressed and a "break" command when the key is released. Simple commands like numerals and letters work best with just a make command followed by a break command.

Only the make key is required for many simple commands but sometimes it gets confused if it doesn't see a break command. Keys like "enter" may execute only when released. There is also a command at the end of every sequence 0x5D (decimal 93) that apparently is an all-clear command. I don't think that is necessary, but it was easy to add to the Airboard.ccf file so I did that.

To get compound key combinations, like ctrl-alt-del, you really need ctrl (make)-alt(make)-del(make)-del(break)-alt(break)-ctrl(break). In reality you usually need only the make sequence {ctrl (make)-alt(make)-del(make)}, and the computer will reboot before waiting for the keys to be released.

There are two files attached. Airboard.ccf is the make commands followed by the break commands and the final 5D command. The Airboard_Make_and_Break_seperately.ccf has the make and break keys separately so you can create macros to get compound key sequences.

The following are all the known commands from decoding several ccf files and working with a similar upgrade for the OFA remotes. The Break command is decimal 128 + Make command:

Make Break

128 000 UP^

129 001 Fn

130 002 End

131 003 Home

133 005 PgDn

134 006 PgUp

135 007 §D

138 010 >

139 011 Menu

147 019 Mystery Command 1

156 028
