Question about Universal Remote Control MX-700 LCD Remote Control

Can't program mx-700 remote

I have a MX-700 Universal Remote, set up almost 2 years ago by the techies at Tweeter, Etc. I got a new Direct TV-DVR a couple of months ago, and want to program it into the remote. Tweeter closed the local store, so I've downloaded the MX-700 Editor software and the manual. Read the manual, got the proper chord, had to get a USB to serial connector for my laptop. Fired up the software, plugged in the remote, and it will not recognize my remote. Keeps telling me I either have the wrong Port, or the chord is defective. I checked my Device Manager, and it tells me it's COM 4, so I set it at COM 4. I tried rebooting, reinstalling the software...nothing seems to get the remote to be recognized. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated. I really like the remote, actually have 2 of them, and Tweeter now wants $200 to come and reprogram it and add the new DVR, just a little annoying. I should be able to do this. Thank you in advance. Carl

    I have exactly the same problem. The MX-600 manual doesn't solve the problem. The MX-700 software in my PC doesn't recognize the MX-700 remote. The software and the remote must communicate in order to change the programming of the 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.

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.

Remote programming


Definately know a great place for you. Total Control Remotes (www.totalcontrolremotes.com) is a shop dedicated to providing clients with products and specializes in remote programming. I had an MX-3000 and an MX-6000 programmed for my client through Total Control Remotes. Not only did they give me a great deal on the remotes, but they programmed them great. My clients were happy. You don't have to buy the remote from them. Just visit the website, click Contact Us, and download a sheet in the downloads section describing your setup. Click submit, and you will receive an estimate quickly. In 2-3 days they can program the remote for you with awesome graphics. If you don't have a graphical remote they do a great job as well. I highly reccomend them. They are also home theater installers as well as home automation specialists. Give them a try!! Good Luck - Jim

Tv codes for universal remote


If you have a learning universal remote, such as the MX-500, just put the remote in learning mode, press the button on the universal remote you want to program then press the appropriate button on the other remote. Otherwise, we'll need to know also what remote control you have. They are not all alike.
