Why pay the higher price for the MX-850 when you can get virtually the same remote for less??!!

This auction is for a URC Aeros Universal Remote Control MX-800. This unit is 100% flawlessly functioning. Its more of a silver color than the white pictured on their website (see below). It looks really sharp. There is some minor cosmetic wear. Some of the paint is worn on the sides due to normal wear (see picture in ad) and there is some scuffing on the LCD. However, when the LCD lights up, you can see everything just fine. On a scale from 1-10 (With 10 being mint) I would put this unit at a 7 cosmetically and 10 functionally. I have sold to another Remote Central user and I am sure he will say that I was a great seller.

Why is this listed with MX-850 in the title? Because its virtually the exact same remote as the MX-850! The only difference is the center select button and the buttons in general are slightly different. I have attached the description for the MX-850 below for a comparison only. You can see how the select button in the center of the arrow keys is "separate" on the 850, but that' t it. The specs are the same . That's really the only difference! The remote you are bidding on was even programmed with the MX-850 software and has all the MX-850 firmware and updates loaded onto it! It really is basically the MX-850!!!!! I have the software I can email to you. I do not have the data cable but they are easily purchased on ebay or used on other sources.

Shipping is $7.00 via USPS Priority and that includes insurance. I prefer Paypal.

Please e-mail me with any questions. And I can send pictures. It is faster to contact me via email at fkcfkc at

No More Pointing - RF Capabilites

Radio Frequency (RF) operation provides 50' - 100' range though walls and doors, indoors or outdoors. Self-adhesive "flashers" affix to the infrared sensors on the front panels of your components. The flashers relay commands to components out of sight of the MRF-200's front blaster. The flashers plug in to the MRF-200's rear flasher line outputs via their 10 foot cables. Six flashers are included with each MRF-200.

RF Addressing Offers Up To 15 Equipment Locations

Each MX-800 can be programmed to operate equipment placed throughout the house, by installing an MRF-200 base station at each location. In operation it's simple: when you select a device located in the home theater, the MX-800 talks to the MRF-200 in the home theater. This makes possible a dream come true! A macro may be programmed to turn off all of the TVs in the entire house with one touch. Simply install an additional at each TV location.

RF Routing Allows For Control Over An Array Of Identical Components

The MRF-200 enables your installation to control up to six identical TVs or other identical components (VCRs, CD players, etc.) by routing your commands only to the TV you select on your MX-800. The other identical TVs will not receive commands.

Controls Up To 20 Components

The MX-800 controls up to 20 components. Each of the 20 components can be programmed with up to 4 pages of LCD screens.

Windows Based PC Software

The MX Editor software contains over 1,500 "code sets" of Brands/Models, including hard to find and specific discrete codes that allow for precise control of all system components. MX Editor also has the ability to learn new commands and Live Update the IR database over the internet. MX Editor can be used on a Mac if the user has a Windows 98, ME, 2000 or XP emulator.

Extensive Macro Programming

The powerful memory of the MX-800 offers up to 912 potential macro buttons. Each of these macros can play back recorded sequences of commands that completely automate a complex system with one touch. A macro can record and play back up to 190 steps with time delays between steps when desired. For example: a single touch to the ON button could turn on the TV, the surround sound system, and the satellite receiver, then set the TV to the correct video input, the surround system to the right audio settings, and finish by selecting your favorite satellite tv channel.

50 Favorite Channels

The MX-800 allows the user to program up to 50 favorite channels and the LCD screen will display the favorite channels that are programmed. This allows the users to access their favorite channel with one simple button press.

One Hand Ergonomics

The optimized layout of hard buttons enables you to naturally reach both 5-way thumbpad to navigate on-screen menus and the critical Transport, Channel and Volume buttons. You'll quickly discover that you preferusing the MX-800 to control all the special features of your system (especially personal video recorders, satellite receivers, DVD players, surround sound receivers and digital cable boxes). There will never be a reason to dig out old remotes.

EL Back Lighting

The bright backlight using the latest EL technology enables a customer to use both remote control units in a low light environment.

Memory Back-Up

The MX-800 system features a smart memory back-up system that will retain the programmed memory for up to ten years, even with dead batteries.

Centrally Located Joystick

The centrally located Joystick helps the user navigate through menus and guides with ease, a very convenient feature for DVD players, Satellite and Cable TV and Personal Video Recorders.

Gemstone™ Buttons

The GemStone buttons have a look and feel that instantly appeals to the customer. Unlike standard rubber buttons, these GemStone buttons add a very distinguished look to the remote controls that will compliment any high-end system.Features and Benefits
