Remember that comment about the strangest situations? This client LOVES his MX500 that's a dozen years old and in perfect clean condition. He modernized his TV and AVR and wants to use the same remote. Try finding the files for THAT!

I'll be putting codes into another URC model, then teaching them to the MX500. It's what the client wants and will pay for, despite the lack of backup that all more modern remotes give us.

Do you want another MX-500? I have one that I never used.

Whom were you addressing? I don't see how it applies to anyone here.

Of course you don't

I know about the URC database, but it has been about a year since I needed it. IIRC, TV remotes still had input buttons on them last time I needed to use URC to set up a system.

Consider one barbecue place on La Brea in Hollywood. They have 10 TVs. A projector shares video with one of those TVs. Video is DirecTV from a SWM system. It's a simple thing to set up a DirecTV remote to control one brand of TV plus three different DirecTV receivers via RF. The bar thus has two remotes. What's the difficult part of this system? One remote lives on the left side of the bar, the other on the right. Not complicated.

On the other side of the room the DirecTV receivers are behind the TVs. Only one remote is needed for that half of the place. You walk up to a TV to control only it. The entire wall gets turned on from across the room with one remote.

How would URC improve this? Nothing more complicated is needed.

In other systems, that is hotels and larger restaurants, we use wall controls. That's not URC.

So now we are to a year instead of “a few years”. Samsung has been using the same crap remote for multiple years now. And again, for someone that’s supposedly been in the business as long as you have, you should know the URC database is very complete and how to navigate it and program quickly. Much quicker than posting your question and waiting for an answer. Hell, every control manufacturer now has very good databases. Especially for leading brands like Samsung and Yamaha. So even those wall control systems should have enough so you are experienced with how to search a database and find the codes you need.

I wish you all a Merry Christmas, no sarcasm intended.

Open youtube and look up "Jimmy Carr Heckler."

Have fun!

I've been doing mostly commercial systems for a few years now, so this problem has not come up before.

Let's see... I said "mostly commercial systems for a few years."
Then I said it's been a year since I looked at the URC software. The fact is that about a year ago I needed to add a 12ish-year old Pioneer TV input command to a system on an MX850.

So, looking up one command once in a few years qualifies as changing "mostly" to something else?

Somehow, to Fins, "mostly" is as absolute as "only."

That makes no sense.

You still haven't explained why you've got an angry attitude here.

Gee, Ernie. You're always on here helping folks (once they give you all the information required) and then the one time you ask a question they all Lash Out!

'Tis the season to be pricks, I guess.

On a side note, while the URC database is usually pretty good, there's a whole lot of crap on there that just doesn't work or is missing.

Thanks, David.

I understand people thinking I should just know ALL of this stuff. What I don't understand is the obvious anger.

You don’t recognize the difference in kindness and sarcasm do you?

We all recognize what casemere says as jibberish skewed by a warped sense of living. Its a disease. Working on a cure now we are.

Sorry Ernie. My kind words are gibberish.

You've proven that is your choice.

Most of us prefer to be thankful for what we have and provide help to those that need it.

So, you chime in near the end of this thread just to attack me? Have you donated to the GoFundMe account for Trump's Wall yet? You seem conflicted and angry. Almost as if you feel you've been CONNED.
