Help! Macro buttons Old Philips RC790


Distinguished Member
I've had from new (early 1990s) a Philips RC775 - Philips RC5 and learning remote control - cost £80-£100 then.

I recently acquired a Philips Matchline RC790, the same as above but with four macro buttons (and some other identifiable tweaks) for £4, but the seller didn't have the instruction manual available.

Although I use a SRU8015 (£65 this year) I still find the 775/790 superior to the really cheap alternatives available now, and ideal for a system consisting primarily of Philips components.

The biggest difference/selling point of the 790 is the addition of the macro buttons, so can anyone help me out with the procedure to program/use those please ?

Thanks, Norman.
