    These are the specs from URC's website ( http://www.universalremote.com/produ...php?item=mx950), so you can check there for more info on this device. The remote itself is opened and it was used only a few hours. It is in brand new condition and it works perfectly. The RF station has never been opened. The remote retails for $699 and it is considered one of the best programmable remotes available today. The RF station, the MRF 300, will allow you to control equipment in other rooms and through walls, and it retails for $199. This is an exceptional deal for this valuable equipment. There is no warranty express or implied by me. Feel free to email me with any further questions.


    Universal Remote Control® Complete Control™ MX-950 Aurora
    IR/RF Remote


    A Master Control for any System
    The Aurora achieves a magnificent combination of power and flexibility, simplifying and automating operation of even the most complex system via it’s virtually unlimited memory. Up to 255 devices can be created with up to 255 pages per device. This allows custom
    interfaces to be created for every room and every user, complete with automated favorite channels and stations.

    Ergonomics and Customization
    The Aurora is equipped with a bright easy to read LCD screen which your installer will customize for your system. The screen labels the ten hard buttons (easy to find by feel) positioned on either side of the screen. Your installer can combine two buttons to create a single row that can be accessed by either adjacent button. This simplifies operation for the entire family and enables convenient operation for both left and righthanded users. In addition, the screen can be “split” so each button is allocated to a specific function. This provides the power user with the ability to see and operate up to 10 functions on a single screen.

    Automatic Backlighting
    The integral motion sensor detects any movement of the remote control and automatically backlights the screen.You do not have to press any button to display the screen. Any movement of the Aurora renews the backlighting.

    Integrated Sound Signaling
    The Aurora incorporates a small speaker for sound playback. Your professional installer may use this speaker to signal the end of a sophisticated automation routine with a beep, a tune or even recorded speech...

    Lithium Ion Battery and Charger Base Included
    The Aurora’s lithium ion battery can be used without rules. The battery does not retain a “memory” like other rechargeable batteries and can be kept in the charger base for any length of time.

    Selecting a New “Activity”
    The Aurora’s WATCH and LISTEN buttons display the activities you can control with your Aurora. 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.

    Optional RF “No Rules” Operation
    In combination with a Complete Control RF Base Station, the Aurora 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 Aurora. 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.

    Universal Remote Control® Complete Control™ MRF-300
    Addressable RF Base Station


    Advanced RF Circuitry
    The MRF-300 RF Base Station incorporates the most advanced RF receiving circuitry ever built for the custom installation market. Long range sensitivity coupled with elaborate features to control interference guarantee success in the complex world of a high-end custom installation project.

    RF Addressing For Multi-Zone Systems
    The MRF-300 is addressable via 15 separate station ID's and six addressable IR outputs. This allows up to 90 components (or zones on a multi zone system) to be simultaneously controlled in one household via multiple base stations, more than enough for even the largest multi-zone systems.

    Extending "No More Pointing" RF Automation
    The MRF-300 includes one RFX-150 antenna module. The RFX-150 is separately mounted (in an interference free location) and connected to the MRF-300 base station by a three conductor cable up to 150 feet away. By combining additional RFX-150 antenna modules in parallel using a three conductor wire connected to a centrally located MRF-300 RF base station, custom installers can extend "no more pointing" RF automation to all areas and rooms of even the largest estates.

    IR Routing Complete Control Over Multi- Zone Systems
    The six buffered IR outputs of the MRF-300 are engineered to comply with the multi zone IR inputs of the most popular multi-zone systems and for use with Direct IR inputs on A/V components. Thus, not only can audio video components be controlled from any of the new remote controls, but also the individual zone that an end-user would like to control. New capabilities to any multi-zone system can be easily programmed by the custom installer, since macros can easily address several zones at once, enabling audio video "scenes" to be set throughout the home, just like more sophisticated, higher priced lighting and control systems.

    The RFX-150 Advantage
    Each RFX-150 antenna module can be separately calibrated to ignore RF interference via its RF interference LED and RF level attenuator. The MRF-300 base station is similarly "installer friendly". It is equipped with industry standard 3.5 mono mini jacks and ships with six visible LED flasher/emitters featuring new, improved emitter adhesive. The IR output is preset for emitter placement on top of the components’ IR sensor, however, each output is adjustable individually via gain controls on the top of the MRF-300 chassis.

    Installer Friendly
    With the special high output number six emitter output set at maximum, IR control of popular rear projection TV's can be accomplished without disassembling or blocking the TV screen. In cases where devices are prone to IR emitter overload, the MRF-300 can have reduced IR emitter output so devices like TiVo, SAT and CABLE boxes are not over saturated. This range of adjustment for the IR emitter output makes for a much more installer friendly RF base station.

    Base Station Mounting Versility
    The base station can be mounted to a wall or cabinet with all jacks facing up, so that accidental unplugging is avoided. The combination of installation features eases troubleshooting and prevents problems from occurring.

    Features :

    Plasma proof system operation via RF at 418MHz in North America.

    RF addressing with 15 different ID addresses selected via MX Editor software and a rotary knob on the bottom of the MRF-300.

    IR routing using six IR emitter outputs, featuring Standard 3.5mm jacks. Number six output features a special amplified output for RPTV's.

    Fully adjustable RF sensitivity and IR output level.

    I would just like to say that this is a great remote (the same one I use)at a great price. Pat, Which RF base station are you including? I presume at the price you quoted that it is the MRF250.

    Its the MRF 300. It retails for $199. All together, this remote and RF base retails for about $900. I'll edit the listing.

    Pat: the link you posted in the first sentence of your OP doesn't work for me.

    Mike, try it again. If not, cut and paste the address into the address bar. I noticed the parenthesis was part of the address, which it is not.
