MX-980 Universal: The Only Remote Control You’ll Ever Need


Are you looking for a universal remote control system that can replace all your other remotes? The MX-980 is a powerful remote control designed for your audio/video home theater system by the aptly named Universal Remote Control company. If you want a remote control that can handle the complexities of your home theater system, then this is it.

The MX-980 has a 2.4″ LCD screen, is fully programmable using a PC, and weighs a mere 7 ounces with batteries. You can easily instruct the remote to do whatever you’d like. For example, if you want to listen to music, just push the listen button and it will run the macro associated with that button, which could be to play all your pre-programmed favorite songs. If you wanted to watch a DVD, then the remote could switch on your DVD, HDTV and start playing. All you really have to do is to program your preferred sequence and you’re all set.

One of the neat features of the MX-980 is its motion sensor system. When you pick up the wand, it automatically turns on its LCD display and refreshes. All keys have a blue backlight so the remote can be used in a low-lit room or totally dark areas.

This remote is a cool toy for gadget and home theater system freaks. This remote would eliminate the tons of remote controls that you have for each and every one of your electronic device. Maybe it’s high time that you consolidate and clean up your coffee table!

BTW, Universal Remote Control has an extensive line up of remote controls in case you don’t fancy the MX-980.

  1. As this company will not provide end users with the software to configure this device, I would avoid this product and company. Even if you buy it from a dealer that configures the remote initially, you will need pay for future reconfigurations when you want to upgrade your system.
