Universal Remote Control Home Theater Master SL-9000

 

Push-Button Ease Buttons are certainly a matter of taste. A big touch-screen remote is good for impressing your friends, but it can't be used without taking your eyes off of the TV screen, and smudges of popcorn butter from greasy fingers are more...

Backlit buttons and LCD; easy to use; good manual.

Universal's web site states the SL-9000 device buttons can hold mini-macros. Not so, only one command can be placed under each device button. I don't consider one command a macro. with a full house of AV equipment I use several remotes...

"Works better than expected, still not enough buttons"

 

I programmed all our components into this remote, even the CD and cassette that didn't have a remote before. Still need more buttons for the up, down, left, right controls of the DVD remote and none of the existing buttons, which can be...
