So for the Main screen macros, the Please Wait page has to be located there.

As far as the process, I exported the Please Wait image files from my MX980 file. The Please Wait page is just two images. A .jpg background file and a .gif overlay file. Next, add a new page to the MX990 Main Screen pages and hide it. Then import the two Please Wait image files. It appears this will work.
So basically, any hidden page will do which will show while the macro sequence is running. Or am I missing something?

Correct. Just has to be within the same set of pages as the macro command button (unlike the 980, where it could be located anywhere). Set a timer following if you want the Please Wait screen to display for a certain amount of time. The Please Wait page doesn’t even have to be hidden. It’s just odd to scroll through pages and have it show up as one of them.

@DaveC56

Did you ever figure this out? I'm in the same boat and cannot find an answer anywhere. Thanks!

From Global Cache, here is the Pronto hex for MENU HOME:

That's the Menu hex, not the Home hex.

Yep, Menu will get you home (eventually) but, the home button has different functionality. I appreciate the effort though.

Hi Stevetd -- sorry for the late response.

I purchased the Logitech Harmony 665 Advanced Remote Control (from Amazon) in order to learn the Home key code, since the Apple TV 4K was part of their RC database. The learned code from the Harmony Remote was not the "Home" key on the Apple Remote. As it turned out, it was the Menu key with a long holding time which gets you back to the Apple Home Menu quickly.

So my solution is to have the Apple Remote near my URC MX-990 for when I need the Apple TV 4K "Home" key functionality.

Belated Happy New Year!

Dave

PS: I returned the Logitech Harmony 665 Advanced Remote Control.

Surf Remote gone

I got my 2 MX-990's from Surf Remote Controls last year. I just went to their site again today and it is replaced with a notice that they have retired. So now where is a good place to buy one of these remotes that is manufacturer authorized (AKA the warranty will be honored)?

That sucks. I got mine there too. Great service, they'll be missed.

I hate that Surf Remote has folded up their tent.
I purchased my MX-990 and my MX-3000 before that from Surf Remote.

Dang it. They were great to deal with. Having recently retired myself, I have to wish them well in their retirement and can't hold it against them

I have done some digging on trying to find authorized dealers that sell direct to end users. URC used to have a list on their site of authorized internet dealers but I guess due backlash from their CI customers, their sanctioning of online sales of the 'Pro' products went away sometime around 2006. The list is available if you look in the wayback machine. Surf was on that list and a bunch of others that are now defunct. The only one that I see that remains is abt.com. They show the URC remotes on their site with a 'call to order' button. But the prices quoted there are not great, about 35% more for a MX-990 than I paid to get one from Surf just a few months ago.
