Hey everyone. I'm learning CCP and attempting to program my first unit, an MX-880. This will seem like a simple question but how do I add a device not found in the database? The brand is not listed. Do I just use something similar and learn everything or is there a way to create new devices?

Thanks, Craig

You would need the original remote and learn all the codes. You can't add it to the database yourself. Add a similar device, delete all the codes for it and learn in the new ones.

Thanks for the replies guys.

I have two media players. One is called a Patriot Memory. The other is some cheapo Chinese one that doesn't even have a brand name (not expecting that one to be in the database obviously).

There aren't even any device icons for media players, like Apple TV for instance, in the gallery on the 880.


As you suggested, I figured I would just use a generic choice and modify/learn all of the buttons.

I have a MX980 file called "Library" that I create new devices in and then import them into my project using Transporter.

You can add devices to the URC database but you can make a dummy remote file (or several if you want to organize them) and then import them in as you need them.

Great idea Lowhz. I'm not familiar with the "Transporter" though. Is this when you can save device files you have created for use later? The manual mentions this but doesn't say how to do it.
