MX-6000 Web Browser
URC has just released a major update for their Complete Control Program (otherwise known as CCP), which is used to program their MX-6000, MX-5000, MX-980, MX-900, MX-880, MSC-400 and KP-900 models. The major highlights are a brand new web browser for the top-of-the-line MX-6000 (the MX-5000, while technically capable, was deemed to have insufficient screen resolution for it to be usable), along with nearly 450 new 2-way modules and 300 new RS-232 modules. A worthwhile update indeed!

Here's a complete list of new features:

  1. MX-6000 Web-browsing is here! Finally—a touch screen browser that doesn't need a stylus. Users can set their own home pages and favorites, no service calls required. You can create one touch buttons on any page that jump to specific web sites as a macro step!

  2. Adds 444 2-Way modules for the MX-5000 and 444 2-Way modules for the MX-6000. The modules support IP controlled Audio Video receivers from the following popular brands: Denon, Integra, Onkyo, B&K and Yamaha.

    • AM/FM/HD tuner modules display frequencies, station names, HD metadata, all presets stored in the AVR and the unique new Favorite Stations stored on the remote for each zone. Favorite Stations are stored with a simple press-and-hold, just like a car radio.

    • XM and Sirius modules display all the song, artist and title metadata that XM and Sirius provide, plus the channel artwork that's missing from the AVR's TV GUI.

    • Status modules provide the end user with a snap shot of the current zone status, with a display of input, mode and volume.

    • Tuner modules have an integrated pop-up display of volume, so that whenever the AVR volume is adjusted, the end user sees real time feedback on the remote that's specific to the zone they are controlling.

      (Note: not all models support HD, XM and Sirius.)

  3. Adds 11 new models to the IP-controllable Audio/Video devices for Volume Pop-Up.

  4. Adds IR Database Update including new Marantz A/V receivers, and Onkyo receivers.

  5. Adds more than 300 new models to the RS-232 serial database.

  6. Adds a new and improved method of adding 2-Way modules to the MX-5000 and MX-6000—it's now much easier to find and add modules.

  7. User Guides have been added to the Help section of CCP for the AVR 2-Way modules and the Web Browser.

These new features are available right now via "Live Update" for anyone currently running CCP, while CCP itself can be downloaded from Universal Remote's dealer-only site, the URC Control Room.

"Adds 444 2-Way modules" - nice marketing talk from URC - the same functionality for a different brand receiver does not constitute a unique count - this number is way below 444 in reality
