Hi all,

I currently have an MX900 remote and MRF-260. The units work great.

I have been able to acquire an MX980i for $50. I have programmed the MX980i and it works 100% with all of my equipment.

Now, when I attempt to use the MX980i with my MRF-260, it does not receive any signals.

Can someone tell me what I'm doing wrong? I do have the MRF-350 but it too does not seem to receive any signals from the MX-980i.

T.I.A!!

The "i" series remotes only work with "i" series basestations.   You can convert the mrf350 into an "i" by using the rfx250i antenna with it.  The mrf260 is not compatible, you would need the mrf260i.

Thanks for the reply. I stand corrected, I do have the MRF-350i.

I still however am unable to have it respond to the MX-980i.

I have also have CCP2.1.1109 but it does not show the MX980 and MRF-350 with the "i" at the end of their names. Did I do something wrong?

Here is a pic of what I see in the CCP

the i series remotes program the same way, so they don't have them show up in the programming.

either you have something programmed wrong,  a wiring issue, or a defective product.

hmmm did see the equipment working at the site before I purchased it.

I have a question for you. I recall with my MX-900, I used to have to tell the software whether to send the command via RF or IR. Is it the same thing with the MX980 and the MRF-350i?

I have a hunch that is what I am missing.

Any thoughts on that?

Yes, there is a programming step for that.  Click on the program tab and look for the RF section.

My brother has an MX-3000 and rf base unit, maybe the MRF-250. Dumb question, but do you have the remote and the base unit set to the same channel? There is probably a switch on the rf unit and a software setting for the remote.

My brother's worked 100% better after I switch both from channel 0 to channel 1.

I think that after a month, he's probably got the problem solved.
