In a thread @ AVSforum someone claimed that his friend was tricked into buying a URC MX-850 by an unscrupulous installer who intended on “screwing her later for additional charges”.

I think it is important to inform the client of future costs for programming changes but when was the last time your car salesman went over what the suspension repairs would cost for the new car your look at? I think it common sense to assume that you are going to pay for repairs & upgrades on anything you buy. The gentleman at AVS described an evil villain CI so i brought him to life :).
