It seems as if URC has backed away from DIY/consumer buyers.

Yes they have and it's a shame. The R50 was pretty good, then the R40 was great - better than all the learning remotes i've used over the decades (even before the ground-breaking Memorex CP-8 Turbo). The killer for the R40 was that OLED screen that goes dim in a few years (also happened on the MX-780).

I would like to see them re-issue the R40 but now with the LCD screen that they're using in the newer version of MX-780. And include detailed instructions this time instead of just letting buyers figure it out on their own ha ha.
URC MX-890, MX-780, MX-450, R40, MX-500, Sony XBR-55X900E, Panny TC-P55ST60, Tivo Roamio Pro & Premiere, TWC Arris DVR, Onkyo 333 AVR, Panasonic Blu-Ray . . . .
