My TSU6000 has a strange timer issue.
I have the timer and macro set to turn on my Sony CMT-MX500i, but it works intermittently.
It works around 1 out of 10 times.
If I hit the macro key that I've programmed, it will turn on the Sony and my iPod all the time.
I've tried resetting the TSU6000, but same problem.
The timer on my TSU2000 does the same thing, but it's more like 1 in 20 times when it works.
Is there a fix for this?

Please post the sony code you have learned and I will tweak it so it will hopefully work reliably from a macro.

The 6000 typically did not have problems with these codes but I can tweak and provide an example for you to follow to see if it works.

Thanks for replying, Lyndel.
My unit is a small bookshelf Sony unit.
I checked on the Sony website, and they said no remote codes are available for this unit.
Is there another way to get the remote codes?
Just to test the Pronto's timer, I installed a macro for a JVC bookshelf unit, and it works flawlessly with the timer.
So you're right, there's something not right with the Sony remote codes for this unit.

Yes, you open up your config and when you double click the action, you can see the IR code data, that is unless you are using Philips Database codes.

The issue you are having is with the duration of the Sony IR code when executed from a MACRO. In order to fix this, I will need to see the code that you learned/added to your configuration.

Note that you may also be required to be in 'Developer Mode' to do this. There is a utility that Daniel has created in the Files section that will set this up for your if not already done.

This is going to sound weird, but the TSU6000 will perform the timer and macro on the Sony perfectly, every time, only when the screen is on.
When the screen is off, it absolutely won't work.
Is there a code that I can add to the macro to turn on the screen right before the timer activates?
I could then install this code at the beginning of the macro, followed by the power on command for the Sony, and then switching to the proper input, such as iPod.
Thanks for the link,Lyndel.
After fumbling with Pronto Edit, here's the Sony Power On code:
0000 0067 0000 000d 0060 0018 0030 0018 0018 0018 0030 0018 0018 0018 0030 0018 0018 0018 0018 0018 0018 0018 0018 0018 0018 0018 0018 0018 0030 0414

Plug this in and give it a try. If this is not more reliable, let me know and I can do more.

Lyndel, you are indeed the Master Philips Addict/Beta Tester!
Your code works perfectly, and solved my timer issue.
I've installed it on both my TSU6000 and TSU2000, and they both run the macro to turn on my Sony desktop amplifier, followed by switching to the iPod input, and play mode.
I need to learn how to read these codes.
I can see how the Pronto and my URC MX-850 can do quite a bit more than I thought by customizing these codes.
Thanks again!

See Barry Gordon's Pronto Hex IR format document in the user data section. The original code you provided had only repeating IR data which is typical of Sony Codes. I simply duplicated that data (starting with the 60) and pasted a 2nd time. I then set the number of IR pairs of one-shot data to the same number of repeating IR data pairs.
