    Won't Control Insignia Digital Tuner

    Posted

    This unit was recommended by a Best Buy CS Tech to replace the original remote for my INSIGNIA Digital Tuner Box, plus 2 other items - ostensibly my Memorex TV & Toshiba DVD/VHS Recorder/Player. While I could get it programmed to control the TV & the Recorder on the respective TV & DVD buttons/functions - although not for all of those units' functions, & several were controlled at different remote buttons than what they actually did control (e.g.: volume at channel, etc.), but I never tried the "Learning" process to change the functions. However, it would NOT program for the Insignia Digital Receiver at the Cable/SAT button/function, as the BB Tech said it would - even when I tried all 3 programming alternatives, it only added another control of the DVD at the cable/SAT button! Yes, I tried all of the Motorola codes that the BB Tech told me to use (apparently the Insignia Digital Receiver box is actually made by Motorola), as well as scan codes, & there is no Motorola nor ANY digital receiver box for method A. Go figure that an INSIGNIA not-so-universal remote will NOT control an INSIGNIA Digital Receiver Box! :-( So this was a total waste of my money, since the primary purpose was to control my Insignia digital receiver! Don't waste your time nor money if you need it for that purpose, or if you want a universal remote to actually control everything on your TV or DVD at the appropriate buttons.

    I bought this for my neighbor next door because he had informed me that his new satellite dish service came to repair his dish. After the repair they also noticed his box top needed to be replaced which they did and with that came a new remote. The trouble he was being able to see the buttons so well. As a kind gesture I purchased this remote thinking big buttons and looks staight forward, I was wrong. One issue I kept having was that when I programmed the TV in the TV slot I would try to program the box top and it would over write the TV even though I program it to the satellite button. After an hour I figured another way to do it needless to say it is doing well

    Works Perfectly With the Insignia TV

    We set this up for use with the bedroom TV, which has a built-in DVD player but also has an attached cable box. It worked perfectly on the TV/DVD side pretty much right out of the package, and setting it up for the cable box was fast and easy. It comes with a handy easy guide that is especially simple when pairing with electronics from the biggest names (which are given single-number shortcuts), though there are also extensive code lists included for a lot of smaller name manufacturers/providers as well. Granted, the system we are using it for is far more simple than many out there, but our experience was nice and smooth and done in a few minutes. The biggest struggle was getting the remote out of the package.

    I had a $25 gift card to Best Buy and didn't want to spend a whole lot on a new remote control to replace a broken Vizio TV remote and hopefully combine control of Amazon Fire TV (for Playstation Vue streaming) and Vizio sound bar. Guess what--it worked! I entered the code for the TV, and the sound bar, and they worked. I was skeptical about being able to do the Amazon Fire, but amazingly enough I didn't have to do anything! It just worked. And this was one of the cheaper replacement remotes in the store. So for simplicity of setup and for actually doing what I needed it to do, I give it give stars. The low price was just a bonus.

    I got this in addition to my Roku Premier and for my 50 in. LG tv since I lost the remote. It took awhile to learn how long to hold the button down and let the red light go on and off 2x to program the code for tv. But it must be held down a few seconds and not let up too quickly. I am digitally challenged and a trigger happy guy so it could have been easier. But it works great to adjust volume and power on and off.

    Replacement Remote

    Was in need of a new remote for an older Samsung HD tv. After checking the price of an OEM remote and researching 3rd party remotes, I decided to go with this Insignia remote. Glad I did. The remote works just fine with the older tv and was easy to set up. Granted it doesn't have all of the functions of the original remote (sleep timer) but for the price, it can't be beat. All of the other functions work just fine.

    I use it for my 4K TV, Spectrum Cable Box, and an Apple TV 4K. Everything works great with the remote. It was very easy to setup the remote using the codes supplied with the user manual. Volume is set to access the Yamaha Receiver. Everything just works and that's a good feeling to not have to pick up 3 remotes to use with 3 different devices.

    I had a 7 year old remote die on me and my Samsung blu-ray player, so I decided to visit Best Buy for a replacement. The associate tried to sell me on a more expensive remote, but I told him this was only for a blu-ray player and I wanted the minimum. He recommended this one and it works well. I was able to easily program it with the 7 year old Samsung Player.

    I bought this for a universal remote to hook up a T.V., Blue Ray Player, and Cable. It was easy to program thank goodness because I have a difficult time programing multiple items. It does come with codes in the instructions also. I did not have any issues and the salesperson was great.

    I am pleased with the 3 device remote. I bought 2 and ended up giving one to my 81 year old mother so she would only have to use 1 remote. Service was really bad they kept walking away. I had to look for one of them when I needed something

    This remote works just fine, but make sure that the spouse you give it to doesn't have a short temper. Otherwise, you may see the remote fly across the room. I will say, however, that it did survive the trip with very little damage.

    The sales kid said that it wasn't even necessary to program it for major brands such as Sony. WRONG! After three unsuccessful attempts to follow the microscopic instructions included I gave up, At least I only wasted $10.

    the remote works as intended. no problems. i chose to manually program it from the code list. i had to try two or three before all the buttons worked but that is to be expected. also it is half the price of the LG remote and works just as well.

    We lost the bluray remote, and there wasn't a way to play the movie without it. I thought I would have to buy a fancy remote, but I ended up buying the most inexpensive one. It connected and I am able to play my blu ray movies again

    Bought this remote on sale over the universal DirecTV remote. It works great. The button setup is slightly different. As soon as I got acclimated to the new setup it was perfect. I'd buy another one.

    There are so many instructions with this remote, and all in tiny print. I was able to get the remote to play the DVD, but not FF, Pause, Stop or open/close the DVD. When my power went out in my house, I had to reprogram the remote.

    Got this to replace my Apple TV remote which is small and awkward to use. This works perfectly. Highly recommend if you are not happy with apples standard remote. Bonus that we can control Blu Ray also.

    My daughter was given a 50" TV with no remote. We just needed something to work on the TV and this does the job. Just look up the code and it works on the on and off buttons and channel settings.

    I was unable to connect it to my tv using any of the methods outlined in the manual. After an hour of trying different methods I gave up. Spend a bit more money and buy a Logitech harmony.
