Will I buy it again? YES! Nothing compares to it when you consider the price of it.

has ReplayTV functions built in (that is what I bought it for) ; able to learn other from the infrared of other remotes ; (was able to learn my old Sony surround sound remote signals) ; can completely reprogram any button to do anything (you can...

Nice but... Not enough memory


I have two of these and they both stop learning before I can finish teaching... Wish it had a little more memory.

It's a learning remote, light weight, nice button layout. Easy learning mode.

Doesn't have codes for 3 out of 4 of my devices so I had to "teach" all the commands from the 3 other remotes. Only takes a few minutes but runs out of space to store learned codes before I get them all in.

It would have been nice if there was a more pronounced Tivo ""home"" button, does not come with batts, a minor compliant I know but it's always a nice touch when you see a pair of good-quality alkalines bundled with the product, tiny buttons and tiny...
