The stand alone software for that remote was discontinued as was the 'legacy' forum was six years ago. Ironically, the stand alone SW for the 810 & 850 is still available.
BUT, their CCP (Complete Control Products) universal software (that is so unfriendly to figure out to use) will work with that remote.

Recording free OTA TV for 'time shifting' has been here since 1975. Will there be DVR's to do the same when ATSC3 obsoletes existing DVR's??

I could probably figure it out, but it seems to be available in very limited fashion

I would suggest finding a local URC dealer and discussing your options. It helps if you buy something from them.

However at that point I would understand if you prefer to sell it on eBay and just buy a cheap Harmony.

With where I'm at in the wiring in the house, I'd rather not buy anything. I have still to complete the tracing of cat5 and coax in the house as well as bulling speaker wires back into their boxes and getting some speakers working. I shoud get a rack to set everything on instead of the shelf that its on but when installers don't leave loops in the cable its difficult to reorganize. I'm pretty sure the only reason this was left is because the previous owner couldn't get the TV off the wall.... lol

Unfortunately these remotes were not intended for consumer updating. They were intended for updates through home theater installers/maintainers. I got frustrated with having to rely on my high end home theater company to do all the tweaks (at a cost each time) and was able to get the software from a company when I bought a new MX990 remote from them a while back. The software is called "Complete Control Program for Universal Remotes". If you do some searching on this thread you might be able to find more information but it is unlikely that you will be able to just buy the software. Also, the software is not "consumer friendly" as you really have to pretty much be a computer nerd to be able to use it.

The problem in doing a "google search" is that the name of the remote being "Universal Remote" makes it very difficult to find specific information about the remote brand because the remote name is also the generic name used for the whole category of programmable remotes... You get a lot of stuff you don't want.

Good luck in your quest.

I have the URC MX-890 and programmed by dealer. I have bought a new 4K blu ray player and just found out that I can’t reprogrammed the remote myself and need the dealer to come to reprogram the remote with the new blu ray player. Any dealer around Sacramento area that can program and how much does it cost?

I'd contact the original company that programmed your MX-890 and see if they'll come out and edit your program for your new device. Might be cheaper than finding a whole new dealer to do it.

Otherwise, you can find a new dealer/installer via URC's website: https://www.universalremote.com/support/contact/
