Hey all, I just bought a URC mx-780 and all is programmed well. The one thing that does not seem to work is the RF to the hopper. Is there anything special needed to be done for this to work? Thanks for any help.

The mx780 and hopper use different RF frequencies, URC only knows one RF frequency their own, it will control it by IR.

Urc knows two frequencies, technically, 418 MHz and 433 MHz. However they will only work with their own RF base. Regular is 418 MHz and "i" series is 433 MHz. If you have an "I" remote, you will need an " I" basestation.

How do you figure? You said they know one frequency, which is 100% false. The OP may decide to go to eBay and pick up a MRF350 and end up with an "i" series because its a urc base, and according to you, will work with his mx780. He'll then be back to ask how does he get this mrf350i to work with his remote.

Wrong, I was referring to a single URC remote, in this case the mx-780 in the subject line, and that it would only know one frequency at a time, its own. It wouldn't be able to control the Hopper via Hopper's RF frequency, get it.

Not really sure what your issue is. Off your meds? Drinking? Whatever it is, check the attitude at the door. I simply filled in a blank you left out so that the OP didn't run out and buy a basestation that is not compatible with his remote in order to make his system work. Why you have to get aggressive based on that info, I have no idea
