Good advice. URC remotes are meant to be sold, programmed and supported by pro installers. You'll get no support from URC. For a remote you can program yourself and get support, look at Harmony.

Moto TA has a HUGE drop if you go through it rather than split before. You may not have noticed much difference, but if you looked at the actual levels you'd see what I'm talking about. That doesn't...

I assume you have the TA plugged into coax and USB, right? And your cable card is showing activated?

Last time I changed my package, they accidentally removed the TA from my account entirely. So that's a possibility too. And make sure it's connected of course.

I'd still go with a VCR for analog and keep the iView for digital. Cheapest route by far.

If they are all the same brand, just one of the remotes should control them all. Otherwise any 8 device universal will work fine. Harmony 650 is probably your best bet.

But the more you spend on...

WMC refuses to start if I RDP on another session. If I RDP any other way it disrupts whoever is watching TV.

And don't you find it very awkward to RDP from a phone?
