This is a very good remote

 

I have a Panasonic HD TC32LX50 TV, a RIO HT2030 Home Theater, a Scientific American 8300HD HDTV/PVR Cable Box and a D-LINK DSM320 Media Center. It took a bit of work but for the first time I have a remote that controls all of theses various boxes on...

Not A good Remote

 

There are other remotes which cost a bit more but delivers what you expect!

Ok Remote if you have a just a few devices

Hard to program, very bad touchscreen, not rechargeable and eats batteries like crazy, button layout is not good. Very high price for what it delivers

Definitely a good buy

 

I found mine used for quite a good deal, probably a third of the "new" cost. Even if its previously used, its easy to wipe the past settings, to get you up and running. I'm just happy to finally dump that loathable Olevia remote to a shelf somewhere,...

This device really can do it all. More expensive than RCA and Sony's various ""learning"" universal remotes, this is more of a Lexus to their Toyotas. I have an Olevia TV, Philips DVD, and DISH Satellite system, and not only did it get almost every key...

I had to fix maybe 3 keys total (all for the DISH, not the TV). But its far less than a normal con, as its fairly easy to do. It is heavier than what came with your tv, but I suppose it makes a good chin-rest when you're laying down. The touch screen...

great remote

 

This is a wonderful remote i had used for about 2 weeks and is amazing how you can control all your devices with just one remote. I am using it for my lcd TV, PLASMA TV,TV/VCR, DIRECTV, DISHNETWORK, CABLEBOX, DVD PLAYER AND EVEN MY MEDIA CENTER PC....

is only for 8 devices

Broke Before I Got It To Work

 

I love the idea of a universal remote because right now it takes two remotes to work our TV. One is just for the volume, the other just to change channels. We got in this predicament because we bought a cheap flat panel HD TV and we ...

Small, lighted

Screen was damaged first week we owned it
