The space at the bottom is to allow Pronto Hex codes to be entered
Pronto hex codes are the codes used to encode Infrared signals when they are learned. Pronto hex codes for many devices may be found in http://www.remotecentral.com. Warning - These are uploaded by users so not all of them may work
Open the hex codes in a text editor eg Notepad
Copy the hex codes for the function you wish to learn and PASTE it into the box
