Poor support, Worn out keys! The title says it all. You CANNOT get software for this. URC wants you to pay someone else to program it.

Youve purchased a unique synthesis of hardware and software engineering, the Complete Control Genesis. The Genesis achieves a magnificent combination of power and flexibility, simplifying and automating operation of even the most complex system. One Touch Blue Backlighting Simply press the LIGHT button to backlight the screen. Integrated Sound Signaling The Genesis incorporates a small speaker for beeps. Anytime you press a button, the Genesis signals that it has understood your command with a beep sound.

Custom Labeled Buttons

The Genesis is equipped with a bright easy to read LCD screen which labels the six buttons to the right of the screeen. These button labels change based on what you are watching or listening to. Thus, if you have selected Watching TV, you will see a list of buttons that are useful to that activity, while if you select DVD, the buttons will control the DVD.

LIGHT Button

Optional RF No Rules Operation
In combination with a Complete Control RF Base Station, the Genesis can control your system without being in line-of-sight of the equipment. Either the MRF-300 or the MRF-250 RF base station is compatible with the Genesis. Both incorporate RF addressing. RF Addressing gives you the ability to control equipment locations throughout your home, even if they are concealed in other rooms or are behind closed doors.
1.The Genesis sends radio waves in every direction, so you dont have to point the remote anymore!
2.The RFX-150 RF Sensor can be freely positioned for optimal reception.
3.The MRF-300s built-in Front Blaster sends commands to components in the same cabinet space as the MRF-300.
4. Self-adhesive Flashers affix to the Infrared sensors on the front panels of your components. The Flashers relay commands to components out of sight of the MRF300s Front Blaster. The flashers plug in to the MRF-300s rear flasher line outputs via their 10 foot cables. Uniquely, the MRF-300 can also connect to rear panel IR Inputs via its adjustable IR Line Outputs.

Installing Batteries
Open the battery cover by pressing the release and pulling back the cover on the back of the control. Remove the cover.
Observe the + and - polarity indications inside the battery compartment.
Place the four AAA batteries into their positions in the battery compartment observing the + and polarity indicators on the batteries.

Programming the Genesis
The Genesis is programmed via a Windows PC equipped with a USB port (programming cable included), using our proprietary software, MX-900 Editor. You can download this software from our website: Basic setup takes only a few minutes with this software. However, to fully automate an audio/video system the user must have a detailed knowledge of each component, you the user (and your preferences) and how the system is connected and operated. We highly recommend that you use a professional audio/video installer to program your Genesis so you will be able to enjoy all the benefits of the Genesis as well as one touch operation via macros.

Selecting a New Activity
The Genesiss WATCH and LISTEN buttons display the activities you can control with your Genesis. When you want to watch something else (a DVD movie, a videotape or an HDTV broadcast), simply press the WATCH button and select the new activity. When you want to listen to the radio or to a CD, touch the LISTEN button and select what you would like to listen to. Your installer will have programmed the button you pressed to totally configure your system to watch or listen to whatever you selected. Now, the screen will change, and all of the LCD buttons will be reconfigured to give you full control of your system while watching or listening to your selection!
When you press the LISTEN button, you can see the most frequently used activities you have for listening in your system. When you press the WATCH button, you can see the most frequently used activities you have for watching the sources in your system.

Once youve selected a new activity, the Genesis displays the title of the activity at the top of the screen. Below the title, the LCD displays the customized names of any special features you need for the activity.

Press either of the PAGE buttons to see any other available choices. The Volume and Mute buttons always control the sound regardless of what screen is displayed. The Channel and Previous Channel buttons will change channels when you have selected an activity like Watch CABLETV or Watch SAT TV. The 4 way cursor buttons enable you to navigate on screen guides and menus with ease. The Number keypad will enter numbers for the activity youve selected. Thus, for watching Cable TV, you use the number keypad to enter channel numbers, while when listening to CD, the number keypad enters track numbers.
The transport buttons (Play, Stop, Skip-, Skip+, FF, REW and Pause) operate when the selected activity requires them (for example, if you watch CABLETV with a TiVo type of DVR, these buttons will control the built-in DVR, while if you are watching a DVD, these buttons will control the DVD player).
