URC-300 Customizer

 

Controls up to 15 components; excellent integration of hard buttons and customizable LCD touch screen; extensive macro capabilities; hundreds of preprogrammed device codes; includes instructional DVD.

No dedicated macro hard keys; LCD touch screen lacks tactile feedback; RF capability costs extra.

The URC-300 combines the best attributes of hard buttons and an LCD touch screen into a superior universal remote.

Universal Remote URC-300 Customizer and MRF-100 Expander Reviewed

 

URC's URC-300 isn't the most attractive remote, but it is easy to use. Even better, the MRF-100 RF expander receives RF signals from the 300 and converts them to IR for your gear. We take a look to see how it performs for today's top performing home...

"Solid Remote"

 

1) No PC interface. It would be nice to setup / edit remote settings via a PC interface, which would also allow real-time access to the latest device codes.

This remote is a solid performer. However, there are some cons that would make this remote a hands-down 5 star winner.

"Saved mom & dad a lot of trouble!"

 

It replaced about 4 different remotes. Macros are easy to set up, and the DVD that comes with it is easy to learn from.

Can't think of any.

Product Specifications

The Customizer (URC-300) universal and learning remote control was designed for A/V enthusiasts who want to "customize" all aspects of home theater operation. The Customizer's touch screen LCD panel can be edited based on consumer device and function label preferences. The URC-300 sends both IR and RF signals, making whole-house operation (indoors and outdoors, through cabinets, walls and doors) possible with the addition of the optional MRF-100 RF receiver base station. The URC-300 can be programmed to execute "macros" including hundreds of A/V operation commands by pressing one button.
