Device manufacturers may include "IR Hex Codes" in the documentation for their devices to control them via Infrared. When adding these IR Hex Codes to a Velocity Device Driver, it is important to ensure that the command string is entered into Velocity properly.
A device manufacturer may list the IR Hex Codes as Hexadecimal quadrants, or "Phillips Pronto CCF Hex". For example:
0000 006c 0000 000c 0006 011b 0006 011b 0006 00bb 0006 00bb 0006 00bb 0006 00bb 0006 00bb 0006 00bb 0006 00bb 0006 00bb 0006 011b 0006 08a4
Though the device manufacturer may identify the string as "Hex", Velocity will only properly interpret this PRONTO HEX when entered as an ASCII string:
If entered as true HEX then Velocity will misinterpret the string and it will not control the device.
