    You are describing "discrete" codes. These are supported by the Pronto if the codes themselves are available for the particular piece of equipment you are using. I suggest you head over to Remote Central and check out the Pronto Files section for a CCF (Pronto config file) that might contain your TV. Chances are one or more people may have already discovered these codes for that actual TV model. I would search the Pronto forum too, to see if anyone has discussed the matter.

    However, on a negative side, quite often discrete codes are just not available or supported by devices. It's purely a matter of luck (or someone's skill in discovering them!).

    You COULD accomplish your objective using the Pronto's macros. It's not as slick as using discretes but it will work.
