Well, you could potentially save learning up to 37 keys
out of 85 total, but there's three things that could negate
the time savings somewhat: finding the correct code; having
to potentially delete "longer" preset labels before inputting
your own; and having to potentially "hide" unused preset
keys if the database ends up using more LCD buttons than
your device requires.

My final strategy would invove a combination of database
codes and learned codes anyways, especially for devices
such as my Marantz receiver which (due to toggle bits)
has always responded better to URC's database codes.

Also it takes a VERY LONG TIME to completely label/learn
all of the LCD keys by scratch, so I really wouldn't recommend
doing this unless you absolutely must have everything
in a specific place - whether you start off using the
database or not.

I actually came up with an Excel planner that helps you
plan out LCD button positions and labels if anyone is

I agree with what you are saying above and agree with what you said in your review:

1. That it would be so much easier to get the remote the way you wanted if the remote allowed the moving of soft keys.

2. That the remote needs more background and icon colors.

3. That P codes should be selected by device & brand, as well as model number.
