I have no idea what that is. The MX-700 can only learn from IR codes
transmitted from the remote. I think you must be thinking of a different
system.

You should make yourself familiar with the facilities provided by the
slimserver developers before you criticize them for not "recognize[ing]
the needs of the integrators".

..../IR/Default.map and .../IR/*.ir are the files that define the mapping
from IR codes to server functions. You can edit them to integrate a new
remote control.
