Pseudo discrete-OFF for SA Digital box
I've had an MX-500 programmable remote for 2 weeks now and it's getting close to where I like it. However, I had a problem with my 'System OFF' macro which is suppose to shut everything down. Since the power command for the SA digital box is a toggle, my 'System OFF' macro would turn the unit ON if it was already off.
To fake a discrete-OFF you can put the following remote commands into a macro:
'settings' -> 'down cursor' -> 'right cursor' -> 'select'
This will set the sleep timer and turn the cable box off in 5 minutes.
I'd be interested to know if someone has come up with something better, though.
