Nolan's MX-900
Added by aka23 | 2011 | 13,196 views
My setup is divided into the 3 areas - theater, living room, and bedroom. Each area includes 2 watch functions - one for TV and one for blu-ray. The watch functions turn on & set up components/lighting, while the corresponding listen functions go to the menus without adjusting components. There are many macros, and many buttons that have different functions depending on how long the button is held. For example, pressing "overscan" goes to the corresponding menu of the Epson projector (this should be a standard remote function rather than having to navigate through 3 layers of menus), and holding "overscan" simply opens the menu for the user to make other adjustments.

I make adjustments often, as I often have new or changing needs, so there are some remnants of old functions that are no longer used. As an example, the 3rd Blu/TV Theater pages have controls for the Sim2 projector (alternate), while the default 1st page has controls for the Epson projector (primary). Comments/questions are welcome.

Home Theater with Device Navigation Variables
Added by Matt Rasmussen | 2010 | 7,329 views
This system includes some more advanced techniques using variables to simulate a 'navigate device' button.

I use three variables that stores a '3 bit' value when you select a source, and then with a press/hold on a 'system' button will send you to a different device for a quick setup, such as preamplifier sound field selections, a lighting page or whatever. Then pressing the [back] button on that page, you will be sent back to your previous device.

The concept is that you don't have to put a lighting page on all your devices, you can jump to that device page, and then go back to your previous device with one button press.

MX-700 System for Aussies
Added by David Harrison | 2010 | 13,436 views
The BeyonWiz and Foxtel devices are fairly much Australia-specific, so here they are for Aussies. Also, I tracked down the discrete OFF for the new Pioneer VSX-1020-K receiver.

5 Room Whole House System
Added by Byron Anderson-Lister | 2009 | 15,381 views
This complex system file allows me to control 5 rooms worth of equipment. Essentially I have 3 identical remotes that are deployed into the 3 rooms. Users select a room and can then choose to listen or watch what's available in that room.

Some rooms turn on equipment (B speakers for the kitchen or 2nd/3rd zones) from the main receiver which adds some complexity. Since I couldn't get hold of an MC-400 you can't move a remote from room to room without it wiping the variables associated with the old room. This is an acceptable compromise is my situation.

I've setup on/off menus that give the user various options with regards to what they want to turn on or off (or even reboot) and there is rudimentary help menu. When switching activities in a room (using the jump button to go back to the main activities for a room) the remote checks if devices have been left on and asks the user if they want to turn it off or not).

I thought it worth posting this as it shows some complex programming (albeit not that neat). I make extensive use of variables and press hold functionality to all me to easily add a new device.

Simple System for Mom
Added by Jim Hafers | 2009 | 8,840 views
After much research, and a great tip from Mike Lang, I got the Elite screen working. I happened to have an old One-for-all remote and learned the codes to that first, then to the MX-900. Might work on some other Elite screens. The remote is set up with simplicity in mind, for my mother and her boyfriend. Bulletproof, with discretes and RF. Hope this helps some people!

Daniel's Home Theater Setup

My complete home theater system on the MX-800 remote control. Utilizes simple device-switching macros and offers complete component control. Works well with both inexperienced users and the technically savvy.

Mark Giles' Main Remote
Added by Mark Giles | 2008 | 8,997 views
Complete system set up. I was able to find descretes for just about everything I need. I have quick access to sound and lighting for on-the-fly adjustments from any activity. I'll probly tinker some more with it, but for the most part, it's done. The wife gave it 2 thumbs up (that's gotta mean something).
