RCA RCU811

 

Inexpensive; extensive button array; two-line LCD; three miscellaneous keys for specialty functions.

Button labels are too small; backlight doesn't illuminate labels; cranky learning mode; doesn't map all relevant controls for many devices.

Despite some tantalizing feature potential, this budget RCA learning remote covers only the basics.

If you have an RCA box, buy it !!!

 

Fantastic value for those looking for a replacement to the OEM remote on RCA Sat./Cable boxes and still control everything else. Buttons and functionality are almost identical to OEM Sat. box so no-look operation is a snap. Lots of memory to learn all fun

Only thing I can find is that level control of 5.1 speakers on my receiver is not easy due to the remote utilizing a 2 button combo to control level and the OEM remote having an individual button for each speakers up and down level control. Of course thos

Don't bother buying this item. The learning feature is terrible. I bought it because I have some remotes from brands that aren't in most code bases (such as Niro), so the idea of getting an inexpensive learning remote appealed to me. Unfortunately,...

At least you won't waste _too_ much money

Learning feature is a cruel mockery
