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.
