Ok, but beware

 

If you have an older TV and want to control other older components, go for it. If you have anything new, beware.

Good feel. Large enough to make it hard to lose. Can control a lot of things... BUT

I've used this for several years, and just got a new SONY TV. I was a bit irritated to find that can only turn the TV on. It can't even turn it off, let alone change channels, volume, etc

I second the junk motion

 

Well, when it snows here in the East I can thorw it under my tires if I get stuck. Going for the second Harmony.

Newegg Rocks ; Denise Rocks ; Remote = None

Beware, cannot tune to channels beyond 99. Spoke to Sony, verified. No LED illumination to show activity. Bought at BB, not Newegg

Junk.

 

Tried the remote on every device in the house, including Sony TVs... It doesn't do anything other than power up the device once you eventually find a working code (NOT PROGRAMABLE). Mine may be defective but without any lights it's hard to know if it's...

Cheap. Makes a good paperweight

You get what you pay for... don't waste your time

Wish I had known...

 

I ordered this remote to replace one we had that broke. The original remote was for a dvd/vhs/surround sound combo, and I figured since it was Sony I could buy this Sony universal remote and really save money and room, as we could combine remotes. Boy,...
