Color Button Functions/Variables

Recommended Posts

Little help please:

1)I have SR-250 programmed for color buttons to be used for PS3 actions (circle/triangle etc..). I would like the colors to be active as those commands only when PS3 is active.

I want to use the color buttons for other actions when watching cable.

Is this possible? I assume some if/then and vaiables need to be set up?

2) I have a triple tap function in my theater to "all off" and raise lights etc. Can I get this macro command to work with the room off button on the SR-450?

Thanks up front.

You can do both those things. Just use a conditional statement on the colored button press.

When Red Button is pressed :

IF source = PS3, do xxx

IF source = DVR, do yyy

etc...

For the triple tap event just say when Room Off command is issued, do xxx.

Thanks for prompt response.

I tried the format with the conditional set:

When command 'Yellow Button' is received

If the current Audio input on Theater->Receiver Output is = INPUT CBL/SAT

Execute scene 'Dim Lights'

I also tried using

If the current Video input on Theater->Receiver Output is = INPUT CBL/SAT

Execute scene 'Dim Lights'

Neither will work. What am I overlooking/doing wrong?Any ideas?

You're triggering off some weird points.

Programming Tab

Select the Room (Top Left)

Choose "Commands"

Choose "Yellow Button"

Select same Room in Actions (Top Right)

Go to Conditionals (Bottom Right)

Select "Video Device Selected"

Choose your device from the dropdown

Enter your command (indented)

Add a Stop (Indented)

repeat for any other devices besides what you want as default (don't forget the stop with each)

Add The default command (if not one of the other ifs are triggered)

Which color button did you assign to each of the Trianagle, Square, Cross, Circle?

I am trying to come up with something useful and each to remember.

Thanks for you suggestions.

While up to personal preference, I have the color of the original icon mapped to corresponding color on remote. The only one off in this is the square - pink on controller, goes to yellow on remote.

That said I almost never use these as I've by now "learned" which buttons on the remote do the actions that correspond to the icons (Cancel, Info, Enter and Guide for Circle, Triangle, Cross and Square).

Thanks for your response. I think I will go with that. The colors on the ps3 remote while pretty washed out compared to the Xbox remote do match for three of four buttons so I will use your suggestion.
