RCA RCU900 review


Editor's note: We have changed the rating in this review to reflect recent changes in our rating scale. Click here to find out more. The RCA RCU900 universal learning remote ($99.95 list) can operate a full range of DVD recorders, VCRs, and DVRs,...

Universal remote with touch-screen LCD; eight-device control; learning capability; TiVo and Replay DVR codes included; audio-system volume punch-through; nine 20-step macros.

Doesn't completely map A/V-receiver or cable-box controls by default; limited key customization; hard keys don't light up; DVD/VCR/DVR transport keys are all the same shape.

RCA's RCU900 learning remote offers a touch-screen LCD on the cheap--if you can live with its numerous design and control compromises.
