Half of my stuff is not in their IR database, so I have to use the "learn" function. Whenever you use the learn function, there will always be problems.


Mike ,

I assume that you do a regular update to you URC software. I find the database pretty complete. Agree about the learning curve, but at some point you go - "Oh, THAT'S how you don't!!!" Plus, there are folks here that can help.

Have you ever looked at the user files uploaded to Remote Central? What a treasure trove of devices and discrete commands.

Plus, they have a huge and robust library of Pronto .ccf files for drag & drop.

Personally, I think the learning function is extremely powerful. With it, I added the commands for my Vortex room fan/heater. I worked them into the macro for my Satellite/receiver/TV. Pretty cool.

I share your concern as I have a Squeezebox.
Now as far as remotes, I am even worse off as I use a Pronto 7000. I dread the day that thing dies. I love it.
