I guess it's nutty, but with hundreds of MX remotes in the field, I've done ONE MSC400. MRF260/350 have always been fine.

I have an MRF350 I need to sub with an MSC400 for some serial control. I understand macros being built and stored on the processor. In this case, the system is fully programmed and running except for the serial commands.

Is it a requirement for me to can all my macros on the MX5000 and build them all on the processor? Or is it possible to run most of it just like it is now?

Being a previous RTI guy, it seemed their processors and macro building was much more intuitive. With one MSC400 under my belt, I am not up to speed.

Thanks for your input.
There is no truth anymore. Only assertions. The internet world has no interest in truth, only vindication for preconceived assumptions.

The MSC400 will behave like a MRF350 and just pass RF-IR without any programming. You're just making a leap of faith that all of your macro commands will be received and executed while the RF gateway is open and they are executing.

Why wouldn't you want to run your macros from the MSC aside from having to rerecord them in your program?
