No problem, you will do fine with the remote with the
software you will have.
People who have MX500s (un-updateable) still have viable
remotes. That's one example of a remote that can keep
learning new models any time they are introduced. You
can learn any new command from any new device well into
the future. You are not obsoleted. Any commands not
on the remote are often found right on this website.
A regular programmer is always on the hunt for some commands
that aren't in the database. That's why we ended up here.
I regularly use older MX software versions and program
remotes all the time. I am not unable to do new clients'
equipment. Anyone who tells you otherwise is not giving
you the straight scoop.
It is tiring to read all the scare posts here. I'd sure
be grateful if we could move on.
My cable box/DVR was not operatable (IR codes could not even be learned) until the new codes were added via "Live Update" so do not tell me that "Live Update" has no value without it my current remote would have been worthless to me, unable to change channels or operate many other DVR functions. My Motorola Moxi cablebox/DVR has unique codes that were added later. BTW the original remote for this cable box is made by URC.
