In most home theater systems, you will find that some codes have to be learned. You may have a brand new
component whose codes are not yet in the Universal Database or you may have most of the codes for a
component, but a few are missing. To find out what you'll need to learn, you must rigorously test all of the codes
you have programmed using the IR Database and correctly label the buttons that have to be learned. Of course
you can simply test a button and if it doesn't work, go into learn mode, test the command, relearn as necessary
and so on. However, this wastes time. The best approach is to download, test all the commands, make a list, then
use MXEditor to modify labels, and delete unnecessary codes.

When you choose Download from the File Menu or click on the Download button on the Toolbar, the Download
window appears.There are two choices for downloading:
oaadd This quickly downloads all of the pre programmed codes from the database.This stage of
programming (before any learning or macro programming has been accomplished) is really the only time you can
use this option. It does save you time!
oaadd This is the normal download you will use most of the time. It takes a little longer, but all
commands, macros and programming are downloaded to the remote control.
Once you've selected a Partial or Full download, click on the D

1 Test ALL Buttons
Begin testing the codes you downloaded to the MX Remote Controls. Make sure that you test all
buttons (hard buttons and the LCD buttons on each page or every device). Don't try to learn new
commands yet, wait until you can do all of them at once systematically.
2 Make a List of all buttons that don't work.
3 Compare the original remote control to the MX Remote Control. Add missing functions that need to be
learned to the List.
