For questions about your Custom Programming call:
Custom Programming of a complex home theater and/or a
multi-room system is one of the most challenging tasks
within an audio/video installation. It involves an intimate
knowledge of how the components interact and exact
details on the proper sequences of control.
Only a Complete Control dealer has the requisite
experience and training to quickly and effectively customize a
remote control for true automated operation.
Congratulations on your choice!

MX-3000 COLOR TOUCH SCREEN
Congratulations
You’ve purchased a unique synthesis of
hardware and software engineering, the
Complete Control MX-3000. The twin goals
of the design team were to improve the
elegance and usability of touch screens
through the physical design while providing
a new standard in brightness, clarity and
animation for the touch screen itself.
Easy Operation
By assigning the important home theater operational buttons to the
natural resting place of the end users thumbs, the MX-3000 achieves a
new standard in use and comfort.
Automatic Backlighting
The integral motion sensor detects any movement of the touch screen and
automatically backlights the screen. You do not have to press any button
to display the screen. Any movement of the MX-3000 renews the
backlighting. To adjust the backlighting, see page 5.
Connecting the Battery Pack
Unlock the rear cover by using a coin to move the locking screw to the
Unlock position.
Remove the cover. For shipment from the
factory, the battery cable is left unplugged.
Plug the cable into the socket next to the
battery. The connector is slotted to prevent
plugging it in the wrong way, so don’t force it.
Locked
Un-Locked
Replace the cover and lock it into place with
a coin.
Battery Cable Plugged In

Using the Charging Base
Plug the 5V DC adapter into a
power outlet and into the back of
the charging base.
Gently place the MX-3000 into the
cradle of the charging base.
Push down on the base of the
MX-3000 until you hear and feel a
firm “click”.
The Status light should immediately
light. Red indicates that it is
The MX-3000 on it’s Charging Base.
charging. Blue shows that it is fully
charged. There is no harm in leaving the MX-3000 on its charging base
whenever it is not in use.
Programmable only by a URC Certified Professional
To fully automate your audio/video system, the programmer must have
detailed knowledge of each component as well as how the system is
connected and operated. Only a trained and certified professional
audio/video installer can install a MX-3000 remote control in a timely and
efficient manner.

No More Pointing!
The combination of the MX-3000 with it’s companion MRF-300 base
station will enable you to place your audio/video components out of sight
behind closed doors and/or in another room of your house. The MX-3000
sends radio signals to the MRF-300 throughout your house (50-100’ away,
indoors or outdoors). The MRF-300 converts your commands to the
infrared signals that control your A/V components.
1. The MX-3000 remote
control sends radio waves in
every direction, so you don’t
have to point the remote
anymore!
2. The RFX-150 RF Sensor can be
freely positioned for optimal reception.
3. The MRF-300’s 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 MRF-300’s Front Blaster. The flashers
plug in to the MRF-300’s 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.

Maintaining Your MX-3000
Be careful not to scratch the touch screen, only use your finger to tap the
LCD touch screen or use a plastic pen top or PDA stylus. Never use a real
pen, pencil or any other sharp object on the screen. Keep it away from
extreme cold or heat. The MX-3000 is not waterproof. Do not use it in any
location that is damp or wet.
If you spill water on it, take out the battery pack and let the MX-3000 dry for
48 hours before you try powering it up again. If you spill coffee or another
beverage on it, clean it with distilled water. Make sure no water gets inside
the MX-3000. The touch screen contains a glass element. Don’t drop the MX3000 or impact it against anything.
Use a soft, damp cloth to clean the screen. If the screen still shows finger
prints, clean it with watered down window-cleaner. Do not use anything
abrasive and don’t use too much water, some might leak into the interior.
