With the helpful resources on this site and tips from several pros I have done a pretty good job programming my new MX-980 in several hours.
I've got one problem (alright, two, but I haven't given up on the second).
The remote for my Philips Streamium SL-401 media streamer uses one button to both skip to the next song and to fast forward within a song. If you tap the button once (or for less than about 2 or 3 seconds), it skips to the next song. If you press and hold the button down, then it starts to fast forward. If you press-and-hold a second time, it increases the fast forward speed. Same setup for the review button (a tap skips backward, press-and-hold reviews)
I can't get the fast forward or the review button to do anything other than skip to the next selection.
The manual alerted me that Philips uses a RC5 "togglebot" protocol and recommends that you do the 2-pass learning system. I tried that, and it helped me straighten a number of other buttons I was having problems with, but not the last two.
I have experimented with various repeat levels (from 1 to 100). I have tried selecting and unselecting the checkbox for "repeat when pressed".
I would welcome any suggestions about how to get this done. The Philips unit is not much good if you can't fast forward or reverse at all.

Problem solved. If anyone is curious, the Philips device requires 6 repeats, and it takes about 20 learning attempts to get an IR code that the device will recognize.
