I like the MX series remotes from URC based on what I can read online. Good ergonomics, quality, reliability, and flexibility.
Since I am an Electrical Engineer, I like to hack on stuff like this and want the ability to program the remote from a computer.
I am looking for a remote for which there are accessible databases of device codes and software with which a reasonably techy person that understands software can program on their own. I.e. end user programming software is available and there are publically available (or via registered user login) code databases.
I do not want a logitech remote, so please don't suggest that.
My primary question is which of the MX series of URC remotes is meets the above criteria ?
Secondary question: are there other high quality remotes that I should consider in the under $500 out the door price range that meet the above criteria ?
Thanks in advance for your responses.
