The CMX88 contains ZeroKey Technology which clones the IR code so that any control key on virtually any remote can control the matrix switch. This technology does not interfere with the normal operation of the remote. The best way to use this technology is to program the CMX88 with the same keys you normally push to switch your AV receiver or TV. The CMX88 will switch at the same time as your TV or receiver without the need for complicated macros or pushing extra buttons. ZeroKey programming is stored in flash memory and you will not need to reprogram even if you lose power. If you buy a new remote to operate your home entertainment center, the CMX88 can be reprogrammed as much as you like. Read More
