After nearly a year of waiting, we've finally received a Universal
Remote Controls Inc. Home Theater Master MX-1000
remote control last week and have just
finished giving it a full workup. Although the actual release date is still set as "any day now",
our version incorporated finalized hardware and (as far as we can determine) the shipping firmware
version of 1.00. The MX-1000 is one of the most anticipated remote controls to come out this year, meeting a
unique balance between hard button functionality and LCD customizability. Sound interesting? You bet!
