With the recent changes by URC to their Complete Control series, it would seem appropriate for us at Remote Central to split our forums into two separate topics, to better reflect the company's dual market strategy.

First is this new forum, which is targeted to all of their Complete Control branded products including the MX-350, MX-650, MX-850, MX-900, MX-950, TX-1000 and MX-3000, plus the new MSC-400. This will be a great place to discuss advanced programming, variables, graphic techniques, troubleshoot any integration issues and so forth.

The second, existing, forum will be repositioned to cover all of URC's consumer models, such as the R5, R7, RF-10, RF-20, RF-30, URC-100, URC-200 and URC-300. It will also cover legacy Home Theater Master products including the SL-7000, SL-8000, SL-9000, MX-500, MX-600, MX-700, MX-800 and MX-1000... although I expect that there may be a bit of cross-traffic on the MX-700 and MX-800.

Enjoy!

Well, I am honoured to be the first poster in this new forum, since I've been a URC fan for a few years now, and know some of the people at URC.

This is a great idea.

Thanks Daniel!

I'm not too sure I like this move but I assume I will adjust.

Woo Hoo..Nice touch Daniel!
There's no worse feeling than that millisecond you're sure you are going to die after leaning your chair back a little too far.

I like this, I just will have to get used to how the CI Lounge is seperate from the A/V Forums. Hopefully it cuts back on the useless arguing.

I am all for keeping the negativity out of these discussions. I think this is a great move.

I would also like to suggest that all threads include the item in question. I know many items overlap, but it may also get more views and responses if the item is mentioned in the title.

I think a thread titled "Problems controlling a Panasonic TV" would be better titled.. "Problems controlling a Panasonic TV with a MX-900" or whatever. I don't have a Panasonic TV but I do have an MX-900 so I am more inclined to read the thread and may be able to help out.

Perhaps the two URC forums should be placed next to each other? Someone will read the description on the Complete Control forum and not see their MX500 listed and assume there's no forum for it.

Perhaps give URC a section like the Phillips remotes, and just list the two forums under that section?

I have a number of customers who will NOT give up using URC's SL-9000. URC isn't providing tech support for the discontinued model. A few questions:

1. How do I eliminate the Automatic Audio Mode Display [A_TV, A_DVD, etc.]? It drives some of them nuts having to press the device button twice [to get from [A_TV back to TV].

2. Can I program a Macro in the four memory buttons [M1 - M4] outside of the AUD or SAT Mode?

3. Does the SL-9000 "restrict" Set-up Code usage by Device Mode? I have 2 Toshiba DVD Players - same model. The customer doesn't care if both Players respond simultaneously to the one command - they determine which one to watch by switching TV inputs. The Toshiba three digit Set-up up code worked in the DVD Mode but not in the AUX Mode.
I predict sometime in the future things will be fixing themselves!

This is the wrong thread to ask this in. You should create a new thread.

And we've just stopped supporting the SL9000 all together. If a client has one and they purchase a new component, we don't change the SL9000's programming.

If you present the new models as a dramatic improvement (say, the MX850, which is a HUGE improvement) then they will change.

You are the pro, you recommend.
There is no truth anymore. Only assertions. The internet world has no interest in truth, only vindication for preconceived assumptions.
