I am trying to program the screens for my MX-1000. I have 6 components and have each component named on the first 6 buttons on the main page. I have used the default large font for these. The remaining buttons (6 thru 12, not M1-M3) are being used for other screens and other macros. For instance I have one button called "Sat Viewing" which gives me a screen with the most commonly used buttons for when I'm watching the satellite. I also have one labelled "Watch DVD" which will be a macro which sends out commands for the system to display a DVD movie. My question is labelling these buttons. When I edit one of the device buttons using the large font it automatically changes the name of the device in the window on the left, and uses this new name when I go to this device page. However, when I edit the name using a small font, it calls the page DEV6, and displays DEV6 when in that page. Does anyone know how to change this. I can't call the button "Watch DVD", but I can surely come up with a better name than DEV6. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Looks like this may actually be fixed in the latest version. When I change a device button to two lines of small text -- say:
When I view the device I get "WATCH DVD" in big text on two lines on each page. If, say, I use:
I get "DVD" in big letters on the first line and "VIEWING" in little letters on the second line. Seems to be working well.
There is a "gotcha" though. If you physically move one of the main menu buttons, the name will NOT change the device. I haven't downloaded such a file to the remote yet, so I'm not even sure it'll link to the device properly.
