I'm not 100% certain, but I think the MSC-400 can only be controlled from a URC remote via their RF. I know the USB port is only for passing programming and you cannot control the MSC-400 via USB.

The limited # of buttons is a disadvantage/advantage. I've found that I don't miss the additional buttons though. The Guide/Menu/Info buttons give me all the "special" ones I need. I actually find...

I'm using MX-5000 remotes and Global Cache (itach) for those devices that must have RS232 control. More and more devices use IP control and the MX-5000 works really well for that.

You can double click on learned codes in CCP/Macro and see the code there. It probably won't look exactly the same (IIRC the signal is cleaned up a bit).

My 1st try would be to see if one of the more common keys work, such a the up/down. That's to ensure I'm not hitting a state issue that is preventing the command from working.

Maybe the manufacturer has a retrofit? Other than that, I'm afraid anything else will be quite expensive (IE replace the fireplace).

My experience has been that IR is slower than RS232, but that could vary based on the equipment involved. RS232 also seems to be more reliable than IR. If all you're doing is on/off then there...
