Product Details

Universal IR/RF Remote, Model MX350

Features:

  • No More Pointing - RF Capabilites
    Radio Frequency (RF) operation provides up to 100' range though walls, floors and doors, indoors or outdoors. Self-adhesive "emitters" affix to the infrared sensors on the front panels of your components. The emitters relay IR commands to components out of sight to the MRF-250's/MRF-300's RF base station front blaster. The emitters plug in to the MRF-250's/MRF-300's RF base station rear flasher line outputs via their 10 foot cables. Six flashers with visual feedback are included with each MRF-250/MRF-300 RF base station.
  • Controls Up To 10 Components
    The Complete Control® MX-350 controls up to 10 components. Each of the 10 components can be programmed with up to 8 pages of LCD screens, plus the 33 hard buttons. The MX-350 allows you to edit the text on each LCD screen exactly as you prefer.
  • Extensive Macro Programming
    The powerful memory of the MX-350 offers up to 472 potential Macro buttons. Each of these macros can play back up to 190 steps with one touch. For example: a single touch to the ON button could turn on the TV, the surround sound system, and the satellite receiver, then set the TV to the correct video input, the surround system to the right audio settings, and finish by selecting your favorite satellite TV channel.
  • 40 Favorite Channels
    The MX-350 allows the user to program up to 40 favorite channels and the 8 LCD screens will display the favorite channels that are programmed. This allows the users to access their favorite channel with one simple button press.
  • One Hand Ergonomics
    The optimized layout of hard buttons enables you to naturally reach both 5-way thumbpad to navigate on-screen menus and the critical Transport, Channel and Volume buttons. You'll quickly discover that you prefer using the MX-350 to control all the special features of your system (especially digital video recorders, satellite receivers, DVD players, surround sound receivers and digital cable boxes). There will never be a reason to dig out your old factory remotes again.
  • EL Back Lighting
    The bright backlight using the latest EL technology enables a customer to use both remote control units in a low light environment.
  • Memory Back-Up
    The MX-350 system features a smart memory back-up system that will retain the programmed memory for up to ten years, even with dead batteries.
  • Centrally Located Joystick
    The centrally located Joystick helps the user to navigate through menus and guides with ease, a very convenient feature for DVD players, satellite and cable TV and digital video recorders.
  • New Center Select Button
    The new discrete center select button is now detached from the thumbpad to offer more accurate response to button presses.
  • Gemstone™ Buttons
    The GemStone buttons have a look and feel that instantly appeals to the customer. Unlike standard rubber buttons, these GemStone buttons add a very distinguished look to the remote controls that will compliment any high-end system and offer superior wear resistance.

Comments about Universal Remote Control Universal IR/RF Remote:

This is a great remote if you have hidden gear in a closet or behind a wall. I have it programed for my receiver, TV, Cable Box, Western Digital pocket drive HD player (Awsome product - get one! Inexpensive too!) and DVD all hidden inside a walk-in closet and have no problems at all.
I would really recommend this only for like a bedroom or den. If you run multiple rooms all with hidden gear, you should definitly upgrade a model or two.
The remote is fairly simple to use (my girlfriend actualy did it which says a lot), easy to program, but it is programed by the old method of punching in 3 digits until you hit the right one, so set up can take some time. The learning function works really well. It would be nice if this were programed via the web.
The display is boring and the factory config order of the buttons listed on the display doesn't really make sense (record is on the 3rd page?) but that can be easily tweaked.
Again - for a 1 room use with hidden equipment, this can't be beat.
If you don't have hidden equipment and won't use the IR function - don't get this remote, get the Logitech instead which is even easier to use, personalize and looks better. Logitech doesn't have IR capabilities until you get to the 1100 and the receiver is much more expensive too.
So for IR - Get this, Hands down. Promise you won't regret it.
(remember to get the receiver though and you don't need to buy the connectors - Universal and ABT say that they are not included with the 100, but they are - there are 6 of them)

Service and delivery comments:

I was seriousy shocked at the knowledge of the service rep and seriously, the free delivery was FAST. Abt's wharehouse is in Chicagoland where I live, but still never expected to get this the next day when I ordered it at around 4 in the afternoon - and not have to pay shipping!
The only thing is you have to call in to order this - It's petty, but I wish it could have been ordered directly online.
I will shop Abt over Best Buy now, anyday. Abt will match the BB prices too. For the same price, better, more personal service. I found a new best friend!
