The MX-450 is an excellent higher-end remote.

After seeing this, I found myself wondering if anyone at URC even used this remote before deciding to manufacture and sell it.

Let's all agree that it does not require an advanced degree in computer science to program a remote control. In the case of the MX-450, neither does it require a "Professional" installer (whatever THAT means).

If you know or can figure out with a little bit or web surfing (a) which components need to be turned on and what inputs and outputs should be selected, (b) what is the difference between IR and RF, (c) what an IR emitter or blaster is, (d) what a delay is, and (e) that you need a Power Off macro to turn off all the devices in your system, you can easily program this remote. It might take a little bit of trial and error and a little bit of patience, but no more than any other "Consumer" remote control that I have seen so far.

Put another way: If you can read the directions and figure out how to program a Logitech Harmony remote at some basic level (and especially if you have already done so), you can read the directions and figure out how to program this one and probably in less time. You might have to start over again once or twice while you get familiar with the guided setup, but the step-by-step software is so simple that even a "professional" installer could probably figure it out :)

My experience: I initially owned a Universal Remote Corporation MX-900 which was installed and programmed for me by a "Professional" AV company that shortly thereafter went out of business. I was irritated at URC because they would not provide me with access to the programming software for my MX-900. They said it was for "Licensed Dealers Only" which is their way of saying "Professionals". It was a great remote, but I was no longer willing to pay somebody $300 every time I wanted to tweak the picture or add/upgrade a component (e.g.

The MX-450 is an excellent higher-end remote. While this model is geared more towards pro installers (the similar consumer model is the Universal Remote Control URC-R50) it is still relatively easy to program via it's on screen setup and does not require advanced manual PC programming like my previous URC MX-700 did. There is a large database of built-in codes for all types of devices and automatic searching for your equipment, though I used the unit's learning functionality to do most of my programming so I could place the button locations directly. You can have up to eight pages of six functions each on the LCD section plus the hard buttons for up to 85 functions per device (this unit can control 18 devices). Very nice.

The unit is well-made and feels balanced and solid when in hand. Ergonomics are excellent with it's curved sides and thumb-recesses. I've never been a fan of base-charging remotes, so the use of four standard AA's is a plus for me. I've gotten about 4-1/2 months of fairly heavy usage with my first set of batteries and that includes a ton of initial button and macro programming for a complex system. The 2" LCD color screen is sharp and bright and the rest of the hard keys are nicely illuminated (intensity levels and timing can be adjusted) with multi-colors via button push or a Light button on the right side of the remote. Note that you can NOT import a background picture like the product page shows, though there are various built-in button/icon graphics available as well as a bunch of popular channel logos for the Favorites list.

First let me say that I bought this remote after my Harmony 890 stopped working well after about 2 years of use. If it wasn't for the fact that some of the buttons stopped working (like the flimsy volume and channel select buttons), I probably would still be using that remote as it worked great for my needs (I have my equipment behind a wet bar cabinet so I need the RF feature). Macros worked great, and the RF worked great for me. The problem was that the buttons simply stopped working (pushing on them didn't elicit a response almost like there was a bad connection -- you had to really mash on the button to get them to register). I wrote a full review on this already.

This led me to look for another remote but I was wary of buying another Harmony (namely the 900 or the 1100), mainly because I didn't want to spend another $200 or so for something flimsy that lasted only another 2 yrs. The 1100 wouldn't probably have this problem but I didn't like the idea of using a tablet and wanted more of a traditional handheld remote.

After researching universal remotes, it seemed like the major players in the universal remote industry are Logitech Harmony and Universal. I was intrigued by the Universal brand after my experience with Logitech and I wondered if perhaps the build quality might be better. The only thing that concerned me, and this was a big concern, was the need to 'hire' someone to program the remote for you. For some reason, it feels wrong to me to have to hire someone a lot of money just to program your remote (I already have a bit of a problem spending over $200 for a remote let alone paying someone to program it).

After deciding to buy this after reading some of the reviews, I am pleased to say that this remote is all that I have hoped it to be.
