Worth the work


Overall excellent product. I bought this for my husband's birthday and his reaction was the best I've ever gotten on any gift. He still grunts happily when he figures out something new with it.

This remote works everything! It also has the ability to record macros so that you can turn on/off and control several things with just one touch of a button

Only a couple of things - the programming procedure is rough if you're not a whiz at these things (but is well worth the effort) and it can't quite hold every function from every other remote so set your macros wisely

Great Deal


Great remote, but you have to have the patience to sit down and program macros to use it to it's FULL potential. It took me 1.5 hours to program 6 devices, and it works great! I'll never go back to using single remotes or cheap universals again. Saved...

Very good remote


I've been using this remote for a while and I'm very pleased with it. It does absolutely anything I could ask for. I have a macro for my DVD player that will 1-Power on TV, 2-Power on DVD player, 3-switch to correct video input, 4-turn on stereo...

This device is well designed. Its has significant flexibility in user configured functions. I have programmed the functions of twelve remotes into this unit. Its programming design is very logical. However, this can be obscured by a somewhat confusing...

Like i said above I got rid of five (5) remotes. I even custom programmed a mifi xm radio. This thing uses 4 batteries, which sounds bad, but consider that it replaces the 10 batteries I would need otherwise with the individual remotes. It's worth the...

Sony RM-AV3100 Remote Control


I purchased this remote for my husband as an anniversary gift. Boy, I couldn't have made a better purchase. This remote is fabulous and he couldn't love it more! We had problems with previous remotes needing just the right angle to work. Not this...

I am 59 uears old and had six remotes. Finally I bought the Sony RM AV 3100. I was able to program it without help, even with a DVR/Cable box from Scientific Atlanta (there was no preprogrammed code) for this equipment. The LEARN procedure was helpful....

I had tried several different "universal" remotes over the past few years, but none of them had anywhere the level of diversity that this remote offers.I use a projector and a mixed bag of a/v system components. My remote control stack threatened to...

Thats right, 1 remote is all you need thanks to the SONY RM-AV3100.I've had plenty of those so called universal remotes that at best will controll 3 devices. This one actualy does it all !!For this price you certainly can't go wrong.

Consumer review (



I've been pining over this remote for about a year, so when it finally went on sale, I snatched it up. It was easy to set up, and easy to use. I went from 5 remotes (TV, DVR, DVD, VCR and Stereo) to this one. It has automatic programming capabilities,...
