I think I found that but I did not fully follow it.
It sounded like I had to create a dictionary, then reset the code for each button on my remote. That is many hours of work. It sounds very much like an algorthm that could have been implemented in a couple of days by a talented programmer.

One point I was making, should any one be interested, was how Philips could keep their customers. Not how I can keep my remote codes ;)

My friend and I both have 9400's. We think it is a fantastic piece of hardware. However, the software is so difficult, that neither one of us is going to buy another. Another particularly bad implementation is the lack of mapping for most codes. I had to learn my TiVo HD codes because I got tired of trying the codes in the beloved database. Other remote manufactures seem to understand how to present a list of the models and select the correct codes.

You may think I am ranting and ignore it, but you are being hurt in the marketplace. Features that make it easier for the end user also make it easier for the installer ;)
