  1. Thanks for the follow-up, yawor! The question is more one of whether the MX-500 and Flirc will get along. As I understand it: The Flirc can be taught to send just about anything to the device in response to just about anything received via IR? But some newer IR devices have inter-symbol timing that wasn't foreseen by URC's engineers, or operate at frequencies that were not in use at the time the MX-500 was made. (The MX-500 applicable frequency range of learnable infrared signals is 10 to 100kHz. The Flirc operates at 38KHz, I believe?) No, you cannot directly enter hex codes into the MX-500. Only thing you can do is use a JP1 (or, of course, other remote) to teach it. I think I read where somebody tried that with a Harmony remote and got the same results as I: The MX-500 indicates it's learning, but does nothing with the results.
  2. Hi There, I'd thought I'd finally found an acceptable streaming device for my Plan, but found our MX-500 universal programmable/learning remotes seem to be incompatible with the Xiaomi MiBox (Android TV) built-in IR. (I've a GE/Jasco IR remote that works, but the MX-500s cannot learn from it.) So the question is: Can I salvage this with a Flirc? I'm thinking I can, based on this post: http://forum.flirc.tv/index.php?/topic/1116-using-flirc-with-amazon-firetv/&page=4&tab=comments#comment-9650 but I'd like to know with some degree of certainty. Otherwise I fear the MiBox is going to have to go back and I'm going to have to start all over. Thanks in advance!
