Sony RM-V-600 Universal Remote


This remote is awesome especially for the $25.00 I spent vs the $100.00 for the Harmony Remote which I had to spend 6 hours trying to program and talk with tech reps from Logitech ( I sent it back ).

EASY TO USE ( DID I SAY EASY? ) ; Works all my electronics for my Home Theater set-up ; Macros pretty easy to set-up also

No light up keypad

Consumer review by:

Great for one-handed control of multiple devices


Multi-function remotes can be handy for consolidating remote proliferation, but they are usually a compromise of ease-of-use against support for features of devices they control. The RM-V60 is very easy to use and simple, though being an older unit...

One-button to switch devices; simple layout handles most control functions

Doesn't support newer devices, like DVD players


Consumer review by:

Finally a remote that does all I need!


I really hate having a lot of remotes hanging around my basement for my TV, CD player, Receiver and VCR. Not to mention the the original remotes that came with some of those devices are not so great to start with.

Easy to program, glow in the dark, LCD display, operates equipment that other remotes

Will not control DVD players

Backlit LCD; potential to control

No learning, DVD, previous channel, PIP, or master volume

Why is this still on sale?


Sony makes great stuff. They do what they do very well indeed, and 4 years ago, this was probably *the* univesral remote to buy, but now that DVDs are on the market, no matter what cool features it may have, if you've got a DVD player, this ain't the...

Great feel, nice layout, VERY easy to program

Doesn't control DVDs, circa 1997

Consumer review by:

Very easy to program


I wanted to get a universal remote for my audio/video components, and I did not want to spend hundreds of dollars on a fancy touch screen remote. I wanted to get a remote that could also operate a DVD player, but this meant paying even more money. I...

Easy to program, LCD display

Does not support DVD players
