Not too shabby...


Overall, if you have DirecTV, it's worth the upgrade to this remote for it's RF/IR versatility & it's overall features that stand out from the basic universal remote that comes with DirecTV. If you don't have DirecTV then spend the extra money for a...

Back lit keys- a must have in any remote; especially a universal remote ; Surprisingly a great universal remote that works with most electronics old & new; a remote that does what it promises, wow ; Overall, nice handling with faux suede/plastic finish...

solid replacement

great remote


This remote worked better than the Sony remote I bought and took back. It controlled all my TV functions and my old Hughes DirecTV box. I was very satisfied with this remotes ability to work everything. I would recommend this remote
