Cisco makes the new RNG boxes I think right? Do they still carry the Sigma chipsets or are they Cisco now or something? I still have my SA-8300HD and hope it never dies! :)

For all you MX users... I've loaded and tested Universal's IR code set in the data base and it works great.

Data base -> Cable -> Pace -> [Pace 3]
Peace!

Yup - I've learned that much (location of the IR receivers on RNG110) chatting with Comcast rep. Still no success with my Harmony 550 (via IR repeater). What is the exact model number of "DCT" boxes someone cited here? I am NOT interested in DVR, just HD set-top box. I heard also ofDCX and DCH line, but undertsnad that these are DVR's.

Can anyone confirm these fix the Menu, Exit, CH+, 2, 5, etc. problem?

The DCT3200 is the box you want that uses the "110" code set.

I successfully tested the IR input on the back of the RNG110 with the little IR extender that is shipped with the DTA boxes. We need to find a good source for these ir receivers, so for now save the ones that come with the DTA if you don't use them. I did not test code sets today through the IR receiver. The good news is the box can be buried in a can behind the flat panel without being seen. Why didn't Comcrap ship these little IR receivers with this new box-cost.

I may be schizophrenic, but at least I have each other.

Well, that's Comcast...busy buying Disney or something...hey I tried putting a simple Xantech IR repeater on a Samsung ultrathin TV and the damn thing would not work. And I was using that funny colored Comcast remote not a programmable remote. When I opened the door, the green remote eye winked at me but when I tried to send the exact code thru the IR repeater...NOTHING!! Tried moving around the emitter and tried 2 emitters and still nothing. Even turned off the TV. Is it the frequency not passing? The weird thing is that the customer wanted me to connect an old series II Tivo up to it so they could record and watch it on channel 3 (but keep HDMI for HD watching) . Damn if the TIVO IR repeater seem to work fine. Tomorrow , I'll try that mini receiver I stole from a DTA install. Wish me luck in Short Hills, NJ

I have found the magic bullet... I had to take my phillips pronto tsu9600 and learn the codes there... then I shot them back at the mx850 out of the pronto. This was after hours of dickin around with this remote, but it worked.
If practice makes perfect and nobody's perfect, why practice?

I tried the idea about using the IR Sensor Extender that comes with the DTAs that Comcast has been sending out. So I went to the other room and removed it from the DTA I had there and plugged it into the back of the Pace RNG 110. Guess what! Works like a charm now. That would tell me that the sensor(s) on the RNG110 aren't very good. If the remote that comes with it performs no better or less that the Harmony remote but using a plug in IR Sensor does the trick...I think we have a fix here.

I realize that most of this is an old thread, but there is something really wrong here. I just replaced my Motorola Comcast box with the RNG 110. My old Comcast remote works with it, and my Harmony remote programmed for my Motorola box works with it. Every command, including the ones mentioned above.

Either Comcast has changed the IR codes or the MX series has a problem.

Comcast just switched over to all digital cable in my area, forcing me to use their model DC50Xu DTA and remote. I programmed my MX-700 and my MX-850 by learning the codes from the Comcast remote, but I can't get the 2 or 5 to learn - forcing me to also keep the Comcast remote controls by our TV's.

After reading the above posts, I found that "DB --> Cable --> Pace --> [Pace3]" should work. Unfortunately, my IR codes only went to [Pace2], and neither [Pace1] nor [Pace2] worked. I then read that I could try cable codes 113, 120, and 123, but my cable codes only went up to 112.

I checked and found that I have program version 1.12.282 for both my MX-700 and MX-850, which is probably an old version. So I called the local dealer who sold me the URC remotes and found that he is out of business.

If someone would please send the latest programs for both the MX-700 and MX-850 to my e-mail address "bill(at)aa4m(dot)com", or just make them available for download and send me the links, I'd be very appreciative. If the IR codes can be upgraded without updating the program, then all I'll need are the codes. Thanks in advance!

- Bill
