Good all in one

 

I use this with a Plasma, a DirecTv TiVo HD receiver, a 5.1 audio receiver and a BlueRay player. With the macro functions I can turn everything on or off with one button and leave the remote ready to use with the Tivo. About a one day learning curve....

Pretty easy to program. Learns from other remotes

Buttons a little less sensitive than I might like

just threw it in the garbage

unusable

One Remote to Join Them All

 

This remote has all the goodies and does a super job of turnings things on\/off, changing channels, playing any games, etc. The distance range is excellent. The down side would be that you would need some experience or perhaps assistance with...
