MAIN Page Only Changing Devices Confuses Client
With a small system, you may opt to program the MX 700/800 so that it never changes devices. By keeping the set
of commands to the minimum necessary, many systems that consist of nothing more than a surround sound receiv
er, a TV, a satellite receiver and a DVD player can be completely operated from the MAIN page. By making all of the
pages on the devices that hold the complete IR database code set HIDDEN, the MAIN menu LCD buttons no longer
jump to the associated device.Thus, they become shortcuts to power commands and any other needs.
11 Create the devices for each component and program them normally using the IR database, imported
devices or by learning the IR commands.
22 In Tree View, work from the bottom up. Expand all of the devices, then beginning with the last page of the
last device, right click and choose H
Hiiddee from the context menu. Hide all of the pages of all of the devices.
Make sure that ALL of the pages of each device are hidden.You can tell that a page has been
hidden at a glance since its icon
will be grayed out .
