Unfortunately I don't see the MX-880 editor on the URC website anymore. It's too bad you didn't keep a copy or make a backup. If you search hard enough, there are sites you can probably find either the editor or a copy of CCP.

I may have the old school editor that came with it. I think it came with it. Been so long.

I tried to use the old editor with my new remote and it did not work. With new MX880's you need CCP. Must be firmware updates in the remote.

Hi All

I bought an existing MX-900 from a house I that bought. I requested the programming software from URC and they send me the "MX-900 Editor."

However as I tried to download (put a new program into MX900) I get a message "MX-900 Editor us unable to download to the remote. It was previously programmed with a newer version of the software."

Also when I tried to upload (get the remote's program) I get this message that "MX-900 Editor cannot open this file. It was created with a newer version of Software. You need to use CCP (Complete Control Program)"

So can I do a factory reset of this remote and then it will allow me to program it?

Thanks

A factory reset probably won't work.  When the remote was programmed with Complete Control Program (CCP) it most likely got a firmware update that makes it only work with CCP.  If URC sent you the MX900 editor, contact them again and explain to them that it won't work and you need CCP.  Maybe they will send you a copy.

A MX900 can revert back to original firmware to use the much easier to use dedicated MX900 software via a button sequence on the remote.

This MAY be the process if anyone else would chime in (Boot Loader);

1.Open up battery compartment & remove 1 cell.
2.Press & hold the "On" & "Mute" buttons, then reinsert the 4th cell. You should get a blue screen with the word "Loader" on the page heading.
3.Download your programming to the remote. If you get an error message to the USB connection, ignore it, your file should have transfered successfully. If not, run the boot loader procedure again.
