MX-5000 TWO WAY TOUCH SCREEN  
Congratulations  
You’ve purchased a unique synthesis  
of hardware and software engineer-  
ing, the Complete Control MX-5000.  
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-5000  
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-5000 renews  
the backlighting. To adjust the backlighting, see page 12.  
Programming the MX-5000  
To fully automate an audio/video system and integrate two way  
automation of servers etc. the programmer must have a detailed  
knowledge of each component, LAN configuration, Wi-Fi optimiza-  
tion and how the system is connected and operated. Only a trained  
and certified professional audio/video installer can install an MX-  
5000 automation system in a timely and efficient manner.  
How do I reset MX-5000  
Normally, resetting MX-5000 is not necessary.  
However, if MX-5000's touch screen freezes or if you notice unusu-  
al behavior, you should press the MAIN and EXIT buttons simulta-  
neously for 3 seconds (It will restart the MX-5000).

Connecting the Battery Pack  
Unlock the rear cover by pressing down on the spring lock at the  
top of the cover.  
Remove the cover. For shipment from the factory, the battery is left  
out of the MX-5000. Place the battery into the battery compart-  
ment, making sure you align the contacts on the battery to the con-  
tacts on the MX-5000. The battery will snap into place when  
aligned properly.  
Replace the cover and snap it into place.  
Using the Charging Base  
Plug the 6V DC adapter into a power outlet and into the back of  
the charging base.  
Gently place the MX-5000  
into the cradle of the charging  
base. It automatically aligns  
itself to the contacts on the  
charging base.  
The Status light should imme-  
diately light. Red indicates  
that it is charging. Blue shows  
that it is fully charged. There is  
no harm in leaving the MX-  
5000 on its charging base  
Red indicates charging, Blue that the remote is fully  
charged.  
whenever it is not in use.  
Two Way via Wi-Fi  
To use the MX-5000 with any two way companion product, the  
MX-5000 must be configured by your installer to be part of a LAN  
(local area network) via a Wi-Fi b/g access point or router. This is  
not user configurable. If you have any questions, consult with your  
custom installer.

Optional RF “No Rules” Operation  
In combination with an MSC-400 Master System Controller, or an  
RF Base Station, the MX-5000 can control your system without  
being in line-of-sight of the equipment.  
The MSC-400 enhances the capabilities of the MX-5000 by storing  
and issuing Smart Macros to your main system components. It is  
triggered by RF Smart Macro commands via RF (radio frequency).  
In addition, your MX-5000 can control components in secondary  
rooms and systems via MRF-350 or MRF-260 RF base stations.  
1. The MX-5000 sends  
radio waves in every direc-  
tion, so you don’t have to  
point the remote anymore!  
2. The RFX-250 RF Sensor can be  
freely positioned for optimal recep-  
tion.  
3. The MSC-400 can control IR, RS232 and Relay con-  
trolled devices.  
4. Self-adhesive “Flashers” affix to the  
Infrared sensors on the front panels of  
your components. Uniquely, all  
Complete Control base stations can also  
connect to components with rear panel  
IR Inputs via adjustable IR Line  
Outputs. The MSC-400 offers RS-232  
control via rear panel connections as  
well.
