      Much Better Than I Expected

      There i was in the remote control section browsing the various versions of Logitech's Harmony lineup, when i looked up and saw this little guy. Right on the front it said "Support for Roku TVs." Funny, I happen to own one of those. Fantastic! But wait, there's more. Just a little further down..."Supports Samsung Sound Bars." HOT DANG (used to say something else, but apparently the language was inappropriate), I've hit the proverbial Jackpot! It actually works with everything and, unlike the Harmony remotes, doesn't need constant re-programming (this comment refers to last-gen harmony remotes. I have not tried the new hub-based versions). For only $18 you can have a remote that controls everything.

      Adds Specific Channel Function to Toshiba TV

      Posted
      rokky

      The only reason I am keeping this remote is because it provides one thing a fancy Logitech Harmony could/would not: It lets me key in specific channel numbers for my Toshiba 55L421U. Corner-cutting design by Toshiba did not provide that ability with the included remote - all it can do is step through available channels one at a time, and the Harmony "duplicates" that limited function, so I returned that overpriced gadget. This cheap GE remote not only lets me key in the subchannels (3.2, 45.1, etc), it also lets me save them as favorites. Woot! It does not figure out any of my other devices, but at least it makes for a better TV remote at the clearance price for a decent deal.

      OK remote

      This remote serves does what it supposed to for the most part. As with any multi-device remote there are going to be some functions that just don't work like the OEM remote does. In my particular case, this remote will not duplicate the "Page Up" & "Page Down" functions as the OEM remote to my cable box does. I can live with it, just takes longer to scroll through the 100s of channels. My only big qualm is that the up, down, left, right arrow keys are surrounded by the "exit" "guide" and other buttons. When trying to hit the left or right arrow without looking, I always accidentally hit the "exit" or "info" button. A big plus for this remote is that it has a blue backlight, excellent for changing channels, devices, etc. in the dark.

      i really liked the feel of this remote, but bottom line is that it was too much for us. we ended up returning it. the functionality of the remote was just fine, once it was set up it did what we needed it to do, but it was difficult to figure out which button controlled which device on the fly and after two weeks we still were not feeling it. we liked that it lit up. the programming guide was quite lengthy and printed quite small. we ended up going with a 4 device remote that is not as sleek, but more intuitive and more appropriate for our situation. best buy accepted my return without any trouble, a feature which enabled us tto try this remote with confidence.

      Really Nice Universal Remote

      I replaced a junk universal remote with this one and I can say it is much better. Especially the backlit buttons, they work GREAT! However, I couldn't give it a full 5 stars because it doesn't have all of the same functionality the original remotes had. Especially the BluRay player. It can be very cumbersome at times to search or change from one app to another with this remote because it doesn't have the same buttons as the original. But, considering the original is long gone by now, I have no choice but to get by with this one. Other than that, it works fantastic!

      Out of about seven remotes I could use for this setup (cable, TV, and amplifier, this is my favorite and the one I use every day. It is the lightest, plus it has a keyboard light, if necessary. There are a few things it will not do, like skip a day at a time when programming, or a simple one button move to access the DVR menu (needs to presses). I can live with that, because all the other inputs are easy, accurate and fast. The price was very low for what it does. Excellent battery life.

      Does not work with Samsung sound bars

      Posted
      DeannaS

      I am irritated beyond belief. We purchased this in-store, and was told by the sales rep that this would definitely control our Samsung sound bar. It does not. There is only one 4-digit code for Samsung audio, and it doesn't work. I looked online for other codes, and I found ones that will work with our sound bar, but they are all 5-digit codes, which this remote will not accept. Will be returning this thing soon. Side note: I went to the manufacturer's website as instructed in the manual, and the code list hasn't been updated since 2013, if that tells you anything.

      Good Enough

      It's my experience that this remote works best if I hold it in a vertical angle instead of pointing at my device. At times that doesn't work either so I need to try additional angles. For that reason I'm only giving it four stars. It takes a hot minute to learn which buttons do what, as each is not labeled exactly as my device remote is. The best part and the only reason I opted to purchase this device, is because it has backlighting which is a necessity for me while watching tv with house lights off.
