Downloading works fine (only issue is that sound files somehow become deactivated on every second download). It is after updating the software the issue arises (or it has done on the last two occasions, but probably not a solid enough statistical basis for drawing a conclusion as to the cause). However, rather than getting into a fight with URC and spending lots of money is shipping, and being without the remote for weeks), I'll just not update the software and hope it will be stable...

One problem with this otherwise excellent remote (I have several) is the dreaded micro USB port fragility (who knew). They simply do not hold up physically. I have two that require holding upside down "just so" with a steady hand during the upload/download process. A couple of them require "weighting" the cable by placing a small object under the cable near the remote to bias the connection upward or downward. One good visual indicator is the yellow (current being drawn) LED on the charging cable (available everywhere with charging LEDs) and the continual confirmation screen on the remote. If it goes dark you do not have a full data transfer connection.

Has anyone opened the 990's case and seen if there is good access for soldering in a replacement jack? I think a swap back to the mini (rather than micro) would be a more reliable long term solution.

Also is the MX-990 still being manufactured? The whole Complete Control line for that matter? The CC line has disappeared from my local dealer distributor's website.

I've been off this forum so long I forgot my old user name!
