Hi G, that's what I was suggesting in my first post.

1) Copy all the regular MC codes from TV1, to a spare region (A) for example, using the one-off codes I noted in the linked post.
2) Then overwrite those positions on the remote region (A) requiring the Philips codes, by teaching the MC remote directly from the Philips remote.
3) Generate any macros required
4) Job done.

Shane however convinced me that this won't work for him. I think there are HDMI CEC issues which are complicating matters as, what I suggested, works fine for me on all three of my systems. One of them in the UK includes a fairly complicated macro.

Cheers, K.
