WAY TOO COMPLEX

 

Until I can fugure this thing out, all I have done is add one more remote to my stack!! Newegg still delivered fast and free!!

Will perform a loy of functions, I guess! Directions and CD claim setup is "simple

This remote will take me about 2 years to program for all the features of my new audio/video equipment. Newegg will not take it back. It must go to the manufacturer for a replacement only

AWESOME REMOTE

 

This Remote is a life saver. We recently installed all our A/V equipment in a closet and decided to use this remote to control everything. We have tried many times to use universal remotes, but it seems that there is always one or two remotes that...

The long list of A/V codes. The learning feature. Sending RF signal instead of IR. Backlight

You sometimes have to hit a button a couple times in order for it to register

The best product ever

 

I have all of my components hidden away in a closet behind the TV. This controller gives you the capability to provide a nice clean look to your entertainment area. In wall speakers and a TV hanging on the wall. Nice and simple. I also have outdoor...

Basics are simple to use and once you get more tech savy you can expand into some pretty detailed controlling.

Didn't sink up with my receiver so a few more codes would have been nice to have. I did however manually program it, which is jsut a matter of point and shoot. Simple.

Works great

 

Was $15 cheaper on clearance at the local BB, so I bought it there. NewEgg has better prices most of the time, but not every time.

The concept is great.. no more pointing. Remote is comfortable to hold. Has an outstanding backlight.

Has CD and VCR among the featured buttons. Who has those machines anymore?

Great remote, IR extender not so much

 

Going back, I am going to buy the remote by itself and figure something else out for the kitchen

I have owned a remote exactly like this one for three years and it is great, which is why I bought this bundle to extend its reach to the kitchen. I would give the remote by itself a 5. It controls all my stuff. Macros are easy to program, will learn...

The RF extender is not usable in my environment because it picks up just about any rf signal. I have wireless phones and a wifi network, and my neighbors do as well. So my components are constantly getting blasted with nonsense signals. Occasionally...

Just what I needed

 

Since most components have only a power button and not an on and off buttons, you can use the same macro to turn OFF all the components. Also, if a component is not in the OFF position before invoking a macro to turn it on, it will turn it off when...

Works through walls, doors,etc and the receiver can be hidden in the AV Cabinet. In most cases the supplied flashers are not required ; if the receiver is in the cabinet with the components, the IR signal bounces around well enough to trigger the...

Fairly complicated to set up macros with better documentation needed. Be patient and experiment and you will get the hang of it. Deleting a macro is difficult if you don't want to lose the functionality of the button (Hint: program in a pause of a...
