        dow will inform you that no signal was detected. Select the Try again button to
        send the signal again, or select the Cancel button to cancel the IR learning
        process.
     x The IR command has a maximum time interval of 20 seconds. If you do not se-
        lect the Stop IR Learning button before that time runs out, you will receive an
        error. Select the Try again button to send the signal again, or select the Cancel

        etc). You can use Enqueue IR Command behavior to access multiple digit
        channels. Or, you can teach the device multi-digit channels (i.e. 22, 144, etc)

(Environmental Control, con’t)

What are the key environmental control behaviours?
  x Clear IR Queue: This behavior works with the Enqueue IR Command behavior. If
      buttons that feature the Enqueue IR Command behavior have been used to cre-
      ate a queue (line) of infrared commands, selecting a button with a Clear IR Queue
      behavior will remove all the commands from the queue.
  x Enqueue IR Command: If you have programmed the V/Vmax with the infrared
      commands for controlling a household appliance, you can use the Enqueue IR
      Command behavior to add the commands to buttons so that multiple commands
      can be sent as a group. When buttons with the Enqueue IR Command behavior
      are selected, the commands are lined up (queued) in the order that they are se-
      lected. They will not be sent to the device that is being controlled until a button
      with a Send IR Queue behavior is selected. The queuing behaviors can be espe-
      cially helpful for multiple-digit commands like TV channels. When you add this be-
      havior to a button, you must select a specific command in the IR Browser menu.
  x Millisecond Pause: The Millisecond Pause behavior enables you to specify that
      there should be breaks of a specified number of milliseconds between actions in a
      macro or behaviors assigned to a button.
  x Pause: The Pause behavior enables you to specify that there should be breaks of a
      specified number of seconds between actions in a macro or behaviors assigned to
      a button.
  x Perform IR Command: Selecting a button with the Perform IR Command behavior
      will send commands for controlling a household appliance to the actual appli-
      ance. You must program the infrared commands into the Series 5 device prior to
      assigning this behavior to a button. You must select the commands to send from
      the IR Browser menu when you assign this behavior to a button.
  x Send IR Queue: This behavior works with the Enqueue IR Command behavior to al-
      low you to line up multiple IR commands (such as the digits for TV channels) and
      send them to an electronic appliance at one time. Selecting a button with the
      Send IR Queue behavior will send the queue (line) of commands that was created
      by selecting buttons with Enqueue IR Command behaviors to the appliance.

pattern. Use the Group Box tool to draw a box around groups of items that should be
