I had to get a new TV HD receiver. How do I get it programmed to my MX-850 remote? It will not turn my TV receiver on when I push the on button. I have to manually turn on the receiver.

What kind of receiver did you get? DirecTV, Dish, or something else? This remote comes with software and cables you can connect to your computer. Once you install it, and connect the device, you can program it to connect with your specific electronic components. You may need your existing/original remotes to help get everything set up, but usually that is a one-time process.

Your instruction manual will list all of the codes to program your remote for different tv's. Failing that you can check your manufacturers website for the same information.

New devices not listed in the mx-850 software

You need to do an update from your version by clicking HELP from the application's menu bar, then select LIVE UPDATE.
...of course, you need internet access.

This is the user's manual for a Phillips remote control. There is a list of codes in it. They should be rather universal. There's also instructions as to how to program it. I believe that there is a way to program it without using the codes.

Programming with Code Search

1. Manually turn on the device (TV, VCR, etc.) to be controlled.

2. Press and hold Code Search button until the red indicator stays on. Release the Code Search button.

3. Press and release the desired mode button (TV, VCR, etc.). The red indicator blink, then stays lit.

4. Press the Channel Up button repeatedly (up to 300 times) until the device could be controlled changes channel. The red indicator blinks, then stays lit. If you accidentally overshoot the code required, press the Channel Down button to backtrack through the library until the device changes channel. Pressing Channel Up changes direction to forward again. Press and release the Mute button to install the code.

Hope this helps :)

Rich, the best way to deal with programming issues is to hire a pro- not only to fix what happened, but to enhance your experience.

They also provide instruction and training if you require it, but they can do the changes there and send you a new config file.

Good luck

Can't program mx-700 remote

Hello there,

I just had the same issue and solved it- its pretty easy as it turns out. check out

This is the previous model owners manual but it works. You'll want to program using the "learn" mode where you point the remotes at each other.
