Last night there was no way I could make the MX-450 work with the MRF-260. This morning it was fine.
What kinds of things cause interference? URC told me that A/V equipment can cause it. Being that the only purpose for an MRF-260 is to reside along side and control A/V equipment I have to wonder if there is a major design flaw.
I can exchange it for an MRF-350 if moving the antenna a few feet away will help.
What is your experience with RF interference?
The URC tech assured me that the MRF-260 is not susceptible to interference. It just happens to be getting interference. I guess I have been lucky my whole life that any RF remotes I have used just happened to never get interference when I needed them to work.
Cable and Sat boxes are notorious for emitting interference. Quite honestly anything with a large power supply can do it. the MRF-350 is far better then the 260 and I would swap it if you have the ability to. Relocate the antenna away, if possible, put it in the basement. Also make sure your ID is not set to 0 as it will pick up all kinds of interference in "sniffing" mode.
