So in addition to the new MX-490, there is also a brand new remote in the CCP line; the MX-1400. It isn't a replacement for anything current but a new top model it appears.
* It has WiFi (2.4GHz only). * Capacitive 2.4" Touchscreen (240x320 LCD). * 2-way metadata (HEOS, SONOS, Roku, Echobee, and more). * Microphone for Alexa integration. * H264 IP camera support. * Requires an MRX base station for advanced features. * Li-ion rechargeable battery (3.7V 1700mAh) with cradle. * USB-C connection!!! * Speaker
Must be some big changes coming to the CCP software for CEDIA as well.
It also seems the microphone is ONLY going to support Amazon Alexa. Boooo.... What a disappointment :( Everything else about this remote looks awesome. I bet the price will be a big turn off however. I'm going to guess MSRP $999+
Under "Requirements", the manual says "The MX-1400 requires an MRX Advanced System Controller on the network and must be programmed by a certified Complete Control integrator". I wonder if that's as absolute as it sounds with regard to MRX?
Also, I'm not sure I like the touch-screen. I like physical buttons at the side of the screen, easier to use without looking at the remote. And no physical number pad.
On the positive side: USB-C, "Two-way metadata feedback".
A step forward in some ways, but I think the MX-990 will suit my needs better overall.
Software Update URCís system has the ability to be programmed by a certified URC programmer remotely (after initial installation). There may be situations where the device may need to have the software update applied manually. Select this option only when instructed by your certified URC integrator or URCís Technical Support Team.
I wonder how thatís done on CCP?. I thought that was only on Total Control
They showed it at CEDIA and said it was going to be available Q1 of 2023. But no additional info I could find. Including what the price might be. Also, watching the video from CEDIA with the guy handling it; that is a chunky boy. Not sure how nice that one is going to feel in the hand.
