Not a bad idea. If I can't find it on my home computer, I might just do that. I need to talk to Mike anyway about the RFX-250 and MRF-350.

I found a copy of the software on one of my old archives and installed it. This was the first time that I've messed with variables and I think they're quite powerful. I did come across something that I couldn't quite figure out though.

Can you do advanced if/then type of logic with more than 1 variable? For example, I have 4 variables, of which only 1 is ever set to "1" at any time. I'd like to be able to press a button, say "TV1" in figure D and have the remote jump to a particular page depending on which of the 4 variables is set to 1. Is that possible?

Thanks all,

Yes, you can have "nested" if statements. For example:

Create a macro/button/function called "LEVEL1" based on variable "V1"

V1 = 1
Goto "Page 1"
V1 = 0
Perform "LEVEL2"

V2 = 1
Goto "Page 2"
V2 = 0
Perform "LEVEL3"

V3 = 1
Goto "Page 3"
V3 = 0
Perform "LEVEL4"

V4 = 1
Goto "Page 4"
Beep and Do something to show error occured and no variable was set

Create a button called "TV1" that calls button "LEVEL1" when it is pressed. Some button/macro has to set V1 - V4 in a "1" state for anything to happen.

Thanks! That sounds like a perfect solution.
