Can I use the MX-890 with the Harmony 900 RF station?

Hi all,

I just picked up a MX-890, but don't have the RF base station. Is it possible to program the remote to work with the Logitech base station? I currently have a H900, but would like to switch if I can.

I read through as much as I could of the MX series thread, and searched for the remote and base station in many different combinations. Nothing came up that really answered the question, so forgive me if it has already been asked!

Thanks.

If you mean a URC MX-890 then the answer is no. You'll need something like an MRF-260 or MRF-350.

I know with the MRF-350 you can also use it as an IR repeater by feeding it with an IR input signal. The IR is then emitted from all six ports. That's the closest you'll get for cross brand compatibility.

Thanks - that is what I feared. My 900 is still working, so I will wait until it dies to see what I want to do. I bought an extended warranty from Best Buy when I bought the remote, so maybe it will break before the warranty ends and I can swap out for the MRF-350

Thanks!
