What's the problem with the RB remote? The Hunter remote I had was the 'homeowner' version and had very limited range. Had to walk around waving it in the air to get it to work if I was very far from the controller.

The need for interruptions is very infrequent - usually when it happens to be watering a section that I need to mow. And its rarely the same section twice, so setting up additional programs wouldn't be practical.

It might work out that you can manage the interrupting completely separate from the controller. Is this system run from a well? If so, is there a pressure tank and switch, or a pump control relay?

This is on a well with a pressure tank and switch.

Yesterday I interrupted the cycle to adjust the spray on a couple of heads in different zones which were hitting some bird feeders. I used the manual restart procedure I mentioned in my earlier posts, expecting to have to shut it off when it completed all zones and, lo and behold, when it finished all zones it didn't start over! I don't think I did anything differently. I'm going to experiment when I have time and try to figure out exactly what the deal is, but maybe I stumbled onto something.
