Product Details

Universal URC Color Remote Control, Model MX450

Features:

  • Delight Clients with Bright Color and Great Ergonomics
    The new URC MX-450 delivers an easy to sell cutting edge form factor, extraordinary functionality and a beautiful color display. The graphical user interface is bright and easily backlit at the touch of the Light button. Engaging graphical icons for devices, activities and the most popular channels are all pre-programmed
  • View and Edit Macros on Screen
    Macro programming is a critical function for delivering a specific sequence of commands to a variety of components in order to provide clients with an easy to use system. In all past standalone programmed remotes, installers were faced with the challenging task of programming macros without being able to modify their work on the fly. Thus, if one step is wrong in the macro (for example, one delay is too short) the entire macro had to be deleted and completely re-programmed. Until now, that is. The MX-450's most revolutionary feature is Macro Editing. This has never been seen before in a standalone programmed remote. At last, the programmer can see the actual macro steps clearly displayed on the remote control's screen. Fine tuning, reordering, adjusting delays and adding steps to the macros can now be done without deleting previous work!
  • Eliminate Programming Bottlenecks!
    Specify MX-450s for secondary rooms and areas.There is a very strong demand for lower priced controllers to operate modest priced home theaters and secondary rooms in larger installations, such as master bedrooms, studies and kitchens. Many dealers do not provide all of their installers with laptops, making in-home remote control programming by a PC equipped programmer a bottleneck to production. As a result, dealers utilize remotes that program standalone, without a PC. Installers forced to setup these standalone programming remotes are often frustrated in any attempt to make the remote automate the system using macros

      Comments about Universal URC Color Remote Control:

      Love this remote. it's very user friendly to program and has LEARN function which is helpful....but there's no great guide to setup Macros which are essential. I watched a few YouTube videos and it was super easy. Really works fantastic and i now own three of them on different systems all with the RF base station. the IR works just as well as the RF.

          Comments about Universal URC Color Remote Control:

          Bought this as I wanted to move my gear out of the main living area (to a different floor of the home) yet keeping the convenience of the remote controls. This unit handles it easily. When joined with an RF base station with the "flashers" attached to the units it easily handles all the remote control functions.

          The MX-450 has a pretty vast database of product manufacturers that can be selected to find a code set that works. Even if they dont exist you get easy learning to handle those items that you want to add. Highly configurable with the extra screens that you can use to set up specific functions and macros for even more complex things you want to do.

          You can also download the "archiver" software from the manufacturer and back up your programming and even transfer the profile to another MX-450.

          If you want all the functionality of a professional universal remote but dont want to spend the extra money for professional programming, this is your option! It also means future upgrading of equipment does not also require extra costs for re-programming as you can do it yourself! You will want to be a little tech savvy yourself to undertake this task though. If you are personally not a little bit of a learning mindset this will not be what you want to undertake yourself - then you will want the units that require professional programming.

            Comments about Universal Remote Control Universal URC Color Remote Control:

            I really like this product because it will turn off all the components at the same time. The tech who programed our remote control even programed it to turn the lights back up in our media room after the entire system is off. We bought one of these remotes for our new media room and liked it so much that we bought one for the tv/dvd/dvr/audio system upstairs too.

            Comments about Universal Remote Control Universal URC Color Remote Control:

            I use this remote in my media room to control a Plasma, DVR, DVD and AVR. I also carry the remote throughout the house to control the DVR which is distributed to other zones (using RF via the URC MRF-260 RF Basestation.)

            Pros:
            -- It is very easy to program.
            -- It is a good looking remote and has a ton of well-placed hard buttons.

            Cons:
            -- It may give you less control than you may used to (changing graphics for example).
            -- Once you establish a device, you can't move it to another page. You must delete and then re-add it instead.

            Service and delivery comments:

            What can I say? I couldn't be happier. I received free ground shipping from Abt and had the remote in my hands the next day (I live in Illinois).
