Research underway by the experts over there, but unfortunately not looking promising

Is there any way to gain access to their hardware codes database?
Not through the XSIGHT, but we can get UEI codes through lower end remotes in their SimpleSet line, learning them, and making JP1 upgrades. That usually isn't necessary however since code are usually available from the manufacturer or OEM remote. The JP1 database is already quite extensive.

Once they start showing up on EBay for cheap prices it is going to be hard for me to resist buying more! I only have 8 left from the China dump a few years back

The JP1 database is unfortunately not very complete. It does not have a single full set of codes for any of my newer hardware. I know that I can use some of the older models from the same manufacturer, but they are always missing a number of functions. I agree with you as it realates to buying more. I love my C3s, but I don't want to buy more if I can't update the firmware. I really hope they can figure this out.

Have you posted code requests? I seriously doubt there will be an issue finding codes.
