5.0 out of 5 stars Best Remote I've Owned, July 30, 2007
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Universal Remote MX-900 40-Device IR/RF PC Programmable Remote (418 MHz) (Discontinued by Manufacturer) (Electronics)
After struggling between purchasing various programmable universal RF remotes, I finally settled on the MX-900, and I'm glad I did! This is a well thought out product that does its job extremely well. I was somewhat annoyed at having to register to download the programming software, but once I did download it, it was an extremely pleasant experience to get the remote programmed and running smoothly. I was relieved to see an extremely straight-forward, yet powerful, interface for getting you up and running smoothly. The software was written with installers in mind, and it shows. (For anyone even slightly technically inclined, this is a very good thing!) Button and screen function programming are easy and flexible, and macro programming is a breeze. Learning codes from obscure remotes not available in the large provided database was also easy. Additional codes can be downloaded from various websites and imported easily as well. (I was pleased to find a discrete power off code for one of my more unusual components which made my setup much more reliable thanks to this feature.) And, perhaps my favorite feature is the ability to download the configuration from the remote onto the computer and save or modify it. This is a huge benefit for those times when I lose my configuration file and want to add a new feature without starting from scratch.

I wouldn't hesitate to buy this product again. In fact, I may just have to get another one for my parents this Christmas just to avoid having to rescue them several times a year when they accidentally change the video mode and can't figure out how to get their system working again. With a couple simple macros, almost any component setup can be made nearly bulletproof.
