The Universal Remote MX-810 is a full featured remote control with a color screen. It is programmed via PC Wizard Software and can be used with the MRF 260 which makes it RF controlled. This means you do not have to aim the remote at the device to adjust the settings.

The Universal Remote Control MX-810 - Fast Customization and Consistent Ergonomics in Every Room
Stylish and state-of-the-art, the MX-810 provides Home Theater owners and professional installers with dedicated, custom control over single-room Home Theaters or AV entertainment systems. It's an ideal remote for single-room Home Theater systems, as well as homes with multiple AV systems and more than one remote control, as each MX-810 remains dedicated to a single room's equipment, complete with a user-changeable label identifying the room.
Features a 2-inch Active Matrix color display
The MX-810 is also pragmatic -- as easy for owners to use as it is quick for installers to program, achieving a unique synergy of power and flexibility that automates and simplifies the operation of even the most complex Home Theaters. Narrow Band Radio Frequency (RF)
Featuring Radio Frequency (RF) addressability and a bright, color LCD display, the MX-810's readiness for programming allows custom installers to put any command on any LCD page, and fully personalize the screen's iconography for any and every user. The RF capability also eliminates the need to point the remote at whatever it's activating, or even remain in the line of sight of any equipment. It can control components up to 100 feet away from locations throughout a home, even components concealed in cabinets or behind doors. Built-In Versatility
With or without the MSC-400, the MX-810 is a powerful, versatile remote that revolutionizes the remote control experience for anyone who prefers a light, hand-held interface. The newest member of URC's family of Complete Control products, it delivers automation solutions for every purpose and superior entertainment for everyone who prefers to operate their systems as they wish, not as the equipment seems to dictate.
The MX-810 features a big, bright, active matrix LCD, larger and more vivid than comparable remotes, and a broad array of snappy, iconic graphics readable at a glance. It provides access to a vast array of custom control solutions, available free of charge on proprietary software online at the URC Control Room. PC Programmable
The MX-810 is PC-powered, programmable by any Windows-compatible laptop or desktop computer with a USB port. An installer can set up the remote by connecting a PC, then following the instructions of an onscreen programming Wizard. This can be done in advance or onsite, with a laptop in the Home Theater being programmed. The laptop need not be connected to the Internet. The programming Wizard guides the selection of operating instructions for any combination of A/V components, in part through effortless access to the world's best library of professional control codes. Color and Graphics
The MX-810 can also be customized with a broad array of graphic "themes," including one-of-a-kind graphics provided by the remote's owner. Installers can ask the remote for Help at any point in the process, and be guided to an answer through an intelligent, context-sensitive response process.
Once programmed, the MX-810's color screen labels the six adjacent buttons with whatever functions are needed at the moment. The labels for the buttons change based on what the user is watching or listening to. If a user selects "Watching TV," he or she will see a list of buttons useful for watching TV. If a user selects "DVD," the buttons will control the DVD player.
Easy to use, understand and program
Additional features include a motion sensor that automatically turns on the LCD screen when the remote is picked up, and a one-touch blue backlight that ensures the MX-810 can be used easily in dim or darkened rooms. A small integrated speaker optionally beeps in response to button pushes, indicating the remote has understood the instruction. A built-in time/date display, low-battery alert, rechargeable lithium ion battery, and a supplied USB programming cable further enhance its convenience and ease of use. Power Plus Compatibility
Equally important, the MX-810 is fully compatible with URC's pioneering MSC-400 Master System Controller. The MSC-400 seamlessly harnesses the power of sophisticated home entertainment systems, providing installers with options and advantages not otherwise available. It offers triggered macros, RS-232 and relay control, video and voltage sensors, rock-solid Narrow Band RF and many more features — taming systems' complexity, while delivering unmatched flexibility, automation power, installation speed, and diagnostic capabilities.
The remote's addressability feature lets it communicate with a specific location or device, like the Master Controller, and comfortably co-exist with other RF remotes in a home, and AV systems in other rooms.
Custom programming a complex Home Theater is one of the most challenging aspects of an audio/video installation. Setting a Theater system to play a DVD with just one button, for example, can require programming a macro that instructs the screen to lower, the lights to dim, window shades to close, the projector and sound system to turn on, and the DVD player to start, while also making sure the cable box and iPod dock are turned off. The MX-810's compatibility with the MSC-400 makes such tasks easy for installers to program and easy for clients to use.
