Adding, masking and deleting memories


Overview

The clone memory image read from the receiver includes far more than just the 2000 main memories. Because the program uses the VR5000's Clone function to upload changes to the memories it is necessary to acquire an up-to-date image otherwise you will find other settings may be changed back to an earlier state.

The recommended sequence of events is:-

  a) make a backup image of the receiver using the 'Read VR5000' button

  b) add, mask or delete as detailed below

  c) perform a restore of the amended image to the receiver

Adding a new memory

Adding a new memory is achieved using the 'Insert memory above' or 'Insert memory below' command. Right-click on a memory where you wish to insert a new one and choose the appropriate command from the pop-up menu. A new memory will be inserted ready for you to customise.

Masking a memory

Masking a memory hides it from sight in memory mode but leaves the definition in the receiver so you can re-activate it later. Right-click on the memory you wish to mask and choose the 'Mask memory' command from the pop-up menu. The row is highlighted in red.

Un-masking a memory

Un-masking a memory re-activates a masked memory so that it is available for normal memory mode operation again. Right-click on the memory you wish to un-mask and choose the 'Un-mask memory' command from the pop-up memory. The red highlight is removed.

Deleting a memory

Deleting a memory removes it permanently and frees up the space for allocation to new memories. Right-click on the memory you wish to delete and choose the 'Delete memory' command from the pop-up memory.  You will get an OK or Cancel message which requires you to respond OK before the memory is deleted.
