The mx-780 remote works very rarily. It won't change channels, guide etc. It controls volume ok. I've changed the batteries several times. very frustrated.

Check the remote control for its infrared emission. Check it with fresh batteries. Check it by pressing all the keys. You can detect the presence of infra-red emission from the remote control, using a cell-phone camera. If you wish to get more details about how to check a remote control, please visit this site. One among the posts has details about it. Surf the site with patience. In some cases, the remote control might need to clean.
Search the site by type in this key phrase "how to test a remote control "in the "search box at the top right of the display window of the Homepage" to get the related post quickly. [open and clean] [open and clean]

Mx 780 remote control channel and volume frozen

There could be many reasons why this happened. A corrupt or missing IR command, or the remote. An authorized dealer and programmer could help by uploading your configuration file and investigating; contact Total Control Remotes for help.

Non responsive buttons

You have to open up the remote. The underside of each button has a black disk. Clean each button with a pencil eraser. Then look at the circuit board. Where each of the black discs would make contact (looks like two "E"s facing each other) clean each of those with the eraser. But the remote back together and all the buttons will be responsive.

The buttons on remote stick. When I press FF, Play, List, etc. it doesn't make the connection. If I press and hold it will sometimes work.

The remote is failing, if buttons are sticking its not worth repairing. Go to ebay and search for a used remote, and buy it. Search for MX-7800 remote.

Its flashing UC MX-780 and I can;t get it to do anything its frozen and tv can;t be shut off or anything

I had the same problem. My URC MX-780 remote with fresh batteries just alternately flashed between the logo screens. It turned out that our fresh batteries weren't so fresh. Fortunately I have a multi-meter so was able to see that three of the four batteries were actually much less than full power. So I went through the 24pack of Duracells and discovered that about 75% of them were the same; low power. I found four that were close to full power and the remote was back up and running! I'm now making a claim with Duracell as the package came with a 10yr storage guarantee. The batteries were stamped best before MAR2027.
