Looking for a hard button remote that has wifi...

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Have used both Demopad and Roomie to program functional remotes and start to take advantage of IP devices like my Onkyo 5008.
What I miss is quick access to comon used buttons - real buttons for volume, channels, page up/down, DVR, etc.

I also have most equipment behind closed doors so had previously used Harmony 900 RF solution.

What I guess I'm looking for is something like the harmony 900 remote that talks IP via Wifi either to the devices themselves (e.g. Onkyo 5008) or devices like Global Cache IPtoIR for the other devices.

Have searched unsuccessfully - anyone have ideas?

Thanks
Mike

Would the URC mx-5000 do what you want?

From the manual it appears so. Looks like I will also need a msc400 unless it also works with the global cache devices I have. And how do I program it?

Thanks for the help

Never mind I did some searching on urc mx series. You already answered this question elsewhere - I have to ask a dealer if they'll also provide the software ( and I guess a username to access the code db/updates?)

You will not need a username, the software will update itself once you get a copy.

I would look at the mrx-1 instead of the msc-400 if you are going with mx-5000. The mrx-1 is a 2-way IP device where the msc-400 is RF only.
