Start with the remote controls an inch apart. Vary the learning distance from
one inch to as much as four feet if the code doesn't test correctly. Make sure
the remotes are pointed head to head!

oll Weak batteries will cause MXEditor to fail to
correctly learn. Note that EVEN if the original remote still operates the component, the batteries can be
too weak to produce a strong enough carrier for any learning remote control to detect!!!! When a code fails,
replace the batteries FIRST!

Appppeeaarr The MX 700/800 (not the SideKick) must be connected to the PC. Once you
see the READY indicator, press and hold the corresponding button on the original remote control while
pointing it at the TOP of the MX 700/800. When the code is successfully learned, the window will say
GOOD, confirming that the code learned correctly. Actually, the GOOD means that the code might be
good.... Press the test icon
and point the connected MX 700/800 at the component to test if it really is
good! Reteach as necessary.
