I have just started out with my new URC MX-810. First of all, it is great. I didn't think I would like the feel of it, but it is comfortable to hold, and pretty easy to find what you are looking for.
My wife tried it out, and although I only have the most basic commands in there, she was able to use it right away, and she liked it. Previosly we were using the comcast supplied "universal" remote, which required you to change components to change volume on our receiver, because i could not program a punch-through for the volume control.
The last programmable remote I have is the old pronto, which I use for volume and light control, but you can't really beat the hard button remotes for cable control. There are so many buttons needed, and nobody likes to move from screen to screen on a touchscreen.
I find the URC software to be fairly unintuitive. It was faily easy to set up the components, although it did not have codes for my 1 year old panasonic projector (pt-ax100). I selected an older model that works, but it doesn't know that 2 power signals are needed for OFF. Is there a way to update the controllers database?
Anyway, the first 'advanced' feature I am looking to program is this. When I press 'pause' on a dvd, I want the player to pause, and I want the lights to come up to a pre-defined level. I have the lights working, and there is a command to do this, so
My question is : How do I add this command to the existing 'pause' definition, without overwriting the actual pause command?
Any help on this will be greatly appreciated.
