You can open Brian's .mxa file with the "universal browser" feature included on just about all MX Editor software programs for the various URC remotes. I just opened it up in my MX850 editor. You cannot use the same screen layout as Brian created, but, you can drag / drop the commands from the file via the Universal Browser window into your remote. Just create a new device for the Elite, open the mxa file in the Universal Browser window, and grab the commands by dragging or copy / paste.
You can only directly import the .mxa file and use the layout screens if you also have the same MX950 remote.
Only some codes will copy over from the universal browser window. Codes that show up as learned will copy over. codes that show up as "preprogrammed" will not copy over- Just a heads up. Brian if you can list which exact codes you used from the URC database for your functions, those can be easily grabbed.
Amen, and hence why URC is a pain in the ass! Okay, I feel better now...seriously though, yes, it is true, my .mxa device config file will only work with the MX-950...don't blame me guys, I really wanted to output it in different formats, blame URC for the crappy way they pigeonholed their software releases for years. Can't use one device's config with another, at least in the case of the MX-950 and some others. So yeah, Universal Browser is the way to get around it...didn't realize it only worked with Learned commands though...the whole benefit of my config is that most of it was not Learned, it was directly from the 141FD, and simply relabelled for ease of use...trimming out the buttons on the 141FD that don't exist on the Elite, etc.
So, a quick list of commands in my config that were "Programmed", not "Learned":
-most importantly, all the discrete Input commands (1 through 8)
-All cursor movement buttons
-Number keys (with the exception of the new decimal point on the Elite)
-Power Control (the power settings page)
