  • Page 22: Complex Operation? Macros Or Help

    Marantz builds components that are “macro-friendly”. Instead of a single “power” button, the remote controls have a discrete “On” and a discrete “Off” button. With a Marantz system, you can record a Macro that is very reliable from a series of “On” commands. Take a look at...

    Customizing Your RC9200/5200 Note Use the Scroll arrows to navigate; the tab style navigational jumps will not work. If you accidentally record a tab button as a macro step, it will do nothing because you cannot alias to a button that jumps. Since it will confuse you to see it in the Macro Edit window, it is best to delete it.
