      Sorry for the late reply, I don't think you will see any limitations with the new version. The older one only works with serial ports so I could not use it with my laptop or some of the newer machines which didn't have the port. The newer version with the USB should take care of that. At the time I purchased, probably four years ago, it didn't have a lot remote codes built in and it takes some time to program if you needed to learn each key for lots of different devices. Once it's set up, it's very easy to use and works well. Good luck.


        He needs to be able to import the CCF code files for the remote control. So you don't have to program each but, also wish I had round, but instead of just square
