Product Details

Universal Genesis Complete Control Remote, Model MX900

Key Features:

  • A Control for any System
    The Genesis achieves a magnificent combination of power and flexibility, simplifying and automating operation of even the most complex system via it’s virtually unlimited memory. Up to 40 devices can be created with up to 40 pages per device. This allows custom interfaces to be created for every room and every user, complete with automated favorite channels and stations.
  • Ergonomics and Customization
    The Genesis is equipped with a bright easy to read LCD screen. The screen labels the six hard buttons (easy to find by feel) positioned on the right hand side of the screen.
  • Selecting a New “Activity”
    The Genesis’ WATCH and LISTEN buttons display the activities you can control with your Genesis. When you want to watch something else (a DVD movie, a videotape or a HDTV broadcast), simply press the WATCH button and select the new activity. When you want to listen to the radio or to a CD, touch the LISTEN button and select what you would like to listen to.
  • Optional RF “No Rules” Operation
    In combination with a Complete Control RF Base Station, the Genesis can control your system without being in line-of-sight of the equipment. Either the MRF-350 or the MRF-260 RF base station is compatible with the Genesis. Both incorporate RF addressing.

          Comments about Universal Genesis Complete Control Remote:

          Was looking for a better universal remote. This one is well designed and feels great in your hand. Only complaint is that there is latency and when you press a button it only works about 2/3rds of the time.

            I use the remote for my entertainment system and it works great. I like the way the buttons are configured and the ease of using the remote for whatever purpose I need. The LED screen works nice at night. The remote is very easy to use for a person like me that is not tech savvy. I replaced my first remote with a new one recently and hope to continue to use this product for years to come. Do not discontinue it ever!

              Comments about Universal Genesis Complete Control Remote:

              I own three because they came with the house and entertainment systems. Would never buy them again. It is a good remote but expensive - the MX-900 is not only expensive to purchase but because URC does not provide any software, you have to pay one of their dealers to reprogram it if you change your systems.

              Comments about Universal Remote Control Universal Genesis Complete Control Remote:

              I got this remote as part of a professionally installed A/V system about 3 years ago. It has been unreliable since the beginning. Sometimes it just drops dead and I've found that taking the batteries out and re installing them (like a reboot) brings it back to life. After three years now, the labels on the most used buttons have worn off. Very often, I will have to hit a button 2 or 3 times to get it to function, and in my case, this happened since day one, not from wear. Once this finally dies, I'm going to try my luck with the much less expensive consumer/retail type remotes like the Logitech Harmony or similar.

                Had professionally installed. Works very well for a couple of years & then the buttons begin to fail. Many of the buttons are now nonfunctional or not responsive until multiple attemps (third year now) and I have to replace the entire unit. Not what you would expect for the price.
