I have a MX-900 that has worked well for about a year and it was programmed using CCP.

It sends to multiple RF to IR transmitters throughout the house and in this particular case it is transmitting to a MRF-250 which "blasts" a signal to a Directv unit. The MRF unit is about 4 inches away from the DirecTV unit and its model # H24-200

I push the remote buttons and it doesn't ALWAYS (sometimes, biut more often than not) execute on the receiver.

I tried changing batteries to a fresh set and same problem.

The only unusual thing is that when I pull the batteries and reinsert and the remote resets, it seems to work well for the first few key presses, but then it gets bad again.

I tried using the IR database at first. It says HR24 instead of H24. About 50% of the keys work. I had to learn the rest of them.

When I re download my saved file to the remote, it seems to take care of these problems...but after time it gets progressively worse. And only for the Sat TV nothing else

I would think if the remote were bad, it would be on all my devices and not just my Sat TV and the intermittent nature makes this frustrating to make a determination.

Could you please give me some troubleshooting tips?
