URC Mx-880 going downhill. TRC-820 a good replacement?

Hello all,
What I am really asking is:

Is the TRC-820 compatible with the same RF module (mrf350/rfx250)? I assume programming is still done with Complete Control Program? Any other sticking points if I move from the 880 to the trc-820?

I have always programmed these myself with no problems.

Thanks!

crap...I just read that the 820 requires a new software package. That may stop me in my tracks. Losing interest in dealing with URC anymore.

Actually, Total Control is not something URC lets end users program. It must be purchased and programmed through an authorized dealer.

Wouldn't the MX-890 or MX-990 work for you? They both work with CCP.
