Chapter 1 Introducing  
Re:control M207  
Congratulations on your purchasing Re:control M207 Remote  
Control. The Re:control M207 is a digital Universal Remote Control  
with smart function design that is easy to configure and use, enabling  
you to control all your IR equipped electronic devices.  
One of the main features is the touch screen control panel, which  
could integrate the number of remote controls in one and reduce the  
number of buttons for each device. The design makes it easy for you  
to find the function you want. You can control up to 64 devices but  
under 8 default categories such as TV, Satellite, VCR, DVD/VCD,  
Amplifier/Receiver, CD/MD, Tuner/Tape and AUX.  
There are more features for users to setup the Re:control M207 easily.  
Combined with preprogrammed codes and Learning functions,  
Re:control M207 enables you to easily configure each device at home  
or office. Approximately 95% success rate in integration for all brands  
of remotes verifies Re:control M207 with high compatibility.  
Furthermore, you can also easily edit devices, change the LCD  
appearance, and customize other settings.  
Macro and Timer functions enable you to initiate a chain of 60  
commands just by tapping a key. Besides, the Macro combined with  
timer can operate automatically at specific times.  
Although most of Universal Remote Controls have a code list for  
various brands and static controlling functions, they can not provide  
you with a lot of flexibility. With Re:control M207, you are able to add  
or delete devices, to re-label devices or keys, and to change the size  
and shape of the LCD soft keys. You can control all your devices with  
one remote control. No longer will you have to search for several  
different remotes!
