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
http://www.universalremote.com/resources/pdfs/MX600manual.pdf

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.

My MX-900 Universal remote does not work when I point it at my TV, it does work when I point it at the AV closet which is in another room. How can I get it to work in the TV room?


You need to program your MX-900 remote for the Sharp TV. Obviously, it is working because it is very good at controlling something else.

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.

Maxent MX-42VM10 42 Remote


Trying to program a universal remote can sometimes be a frustrating process. Successful programming of a universal remote depends on whether the universal remote manufacturer included our company’s information in the remote when it was assembled.

Then a cable company (ie., Comcast) or satellite provider (ie., Dish Network) orders their decoder box and universal remote control from a manufacturer (ie., Scientific Atlanta, Motorola, etc.), the decoder box manufacturer provides a list of all the possible remote controls this universal can duplicate. From that list the cable company or satellite selects which manufacture’s products to include on their new universal remote. Once those manufacturers names have been decided, they are placed on the universal remote and a numeric code is assigned. If they choose not to include our company on the universal remote, the universal remote may not access the Maxent screen.

If you cannot locate Maxent on the list provided to you by the universal remote provider, please try the following:

Through contact with various cable and satellite content providers we have developed a list of the most common numeric codes that are used with universal remotes.

Content Provider/Most commonly used code

Comcast: 1755
Comcast (ML-3251HLT Model): 0054
Insight: 1755

Direct TV: 11755
Dish Network: 742
Cable Vision: 165
Adelphia: 0156, 1755
Universal: 0762
One4All: 0036
Time Warner: 0230


We have identified other manufacturers of display products that have similar remote control information to ours. Depending on the universal remote you are using these manufacturers may work. Please use the documentation that accompanied your universal remote, and look up the following companies. Input the numeric code associate with that company.

Gateway
Sampo
Viewsonic
Magnavox
Phillips
Marantz
Pilot

If the universal remote you are trying to program contains a Code Search (the remote will scan through all the codes contained within the universal remote) function, we recommend that you try that procedure. It is possible that there may be another manufacturer code that may work with our monitor.

You may also want to try a Learning Remote from another manufacturer. This type of remote control can absorb or record the information coming directly out of the Maxent remote control. The learning remote then duplicates that information and acts like the Maxent Remote control. This type of remote can also record the signal coming from your other universal remotes in the same manner. In which case you can use this learning remote for your entire audio video system
