Great remote! LED lighting is important if you use your remote in the dark, as I always do, and almost all the buttons light up, which is great. Works perfectly with all my devices: Samsung LCD, Samsung Bluray, Onkyo Surround, Verizon HD Box. The only bad thing is that the remote face is made of a very shinny plastic and fingerprints show very easily. Highly recommend. NOTE: When setting up this remote and using the ALL Volume/Mute controls (page 11) the instructions in the booklet are WRONG! Step 1 is correct. Step 2 is WRONG. You only need to press and hold MUTE until it blinks, then release. Step 3 is WRONG. After step 2 you must press the desired mode you want to control the volume at all times. I use an amp therefore I press the amp button. Step 4 is correct, press MUTE to finish.
Pros: Lots of Features, Nice Design, bright led lighting
My dog chewed up the remote that came with my dvr from the cable company. Since I didn't have time to go the cable office in another city to get a replacement, I thought I would try this one. It worked great with both my tv and dvr and has all of the "special" buttons and features that the other remote had. I don't really care about the shape and how it fits in my hands as I don't plan on holding it for hours. I am happy as long as it allows me to operate my devices properly. Therefore, it has worked so well, I still haven't gotten a replacement remote from the cable company.
