    Easy Setup, Works with XBOX

    Unlike many universal remotes, the setup doesn't require much explanation. Hold the button down that you want to program (keep it pressed down) while typing in the listed code for your device. Done. That's it. No waiting for the light to blink 3 times, and press this button and that button etc. etc. etc. 2 steps, it's that simple. The TV in my bedroom is about 6 years old and for whatever reason I couldn't get a couple other cheaper universal remotes to work with it, but this one works great. Full functionality with the menu, etc. I got this for $10.99 on clearance, so I'm pretty happy with the deal I got, but would've still been happy had I paid the full $24.99 that it's listed for on the site as I write this. (But maybe just swing by your local store before buying online to check) The kicker? it works with my XBOX One. It turns it off and on, full functionality with menu controls etc. I'm very happy about this, as this is nothing but a bonus as I didn't realize it was compatible until I read another review on here. I'm gonna go see if it flushes my toilet next, but even if doesn't, I would still highly recommend this (don't forget to check for it on clearance)

    The price was right but I bought this product for an elderly person and asked would it control both Steaming Fios and TV, it does not have an option to cross over to volume and channel changer on the streaming fios box AND power on and off the tv, the buttons are small, the features are difficult to set up and the ease of use is questionable. Really if I had the time and desire like in my youtyh I would have bought this product and putzed with it but that is why I asked for easy peezy remote.

    This remote works with my Roku

    The remote control for my Roku Express, which works in infrared only (not wifi like all other Roku remotes) died. This universal remote saved my Roku, as it would be pointless without a remote. In addition, I linked all the other devices to it and now I am saving a small fortune in batteries. Only problem is some of the buttons are small and close together and my fingernails accidentally hit additional unintended buttons.

    Works with Xfinity, Roku, Samsung, and Insignia.

    For the price, you can't go wrong. Was easy to program using the codes and it is lightweight. My only negative is the volume controls, it's hard to feel them in the dark, but I am getting used to it. Backlit buttons would be nice, but I've found those type of remotes go through batteries quickly. This works as well as more expensive remotes, but doesn't do anything fancy.

    Disappointed

    I was going to purchase the Logitech but the salesman talked me into the cheaper one( RCA). I was able to convert my TV and Soundbar. Most important device I wanted to control is my Dish receiver. It shows that the code has worked but will not do anything with the DVR. I have been trying for 3 days with all the different ways to try and convert it but will not respond. Disappointed. Am going to return.

    Did not work with my exotic Pansonic DVD player

    This remote did not work with my exotic Panasonic DVD player, who which has slow-mo and freeze ability. It worked with all other devices in the house. Best Buy was agreeable to allow me to return it for credit. I purchased this controller because I could not find the factory provided controller. I subsequently found the original controller, which worked fine.

    I needed to find a remote that was simple and would also work with my Apple TV, so my mom could watch when she came over to visit. This remote was well worth the money- it paired easily with with my TV, Apple TV 4K and my DVD player, it was affordable and simple enough for my mother to figure out on her own.

    My Visio tv remote went bad. There is a Visio button that access’s the apps. The rca remote was unable to duplicate that function. The volume, on and off, arrow keys, number pad all worked. But there was no special function key that converted to take you to the app location. So if you need that part it is pretty much useless.

    Cheap. Shiny. Functional. If you're like me and have a pile of remotes BUY THIS ONE! Its under 30$ and can control my LG OLED TV, my Yamaha surround sound, my dish hopper cable box, and my XBOX One S. Yes. You read that correctly. All of them. From one remote. Do your coffee table a favor and buy this!

    Functions fine but can't take advantage of Samsung's Smart TV options. Back button returns you to broadcast tv function and can't use while in apps like Netflix or hulu. Its livable but I will be buying an original remote to fully enjoy my Samsung NU8500.

    The good = it worked right out of the box. All functions work appropriately. The bad = the input function is at the bottom of the remote control. Then you have to readjust your hands to move up and scroll up and down to choose input. The input button should be right next to the arrow buttons.

    This RCA remote worked like a charm. Our original remote was accidentally left in our sheets during a wash and we needed a new remote. I purchase this one for a replacement and it did not disappoint. As soon as I typed in the code, the laziness level escalated to over 100 with channel surfing!

    I bought this after losing my AppleTV (3rd Generation) metal remote.l. After following the instructions to pair it the remote wouldn’t work with the AppleTV. This for me was the only thing I wanted so can’t talk about other features since once this worked I was done.

    It is programmed with Samsung TVs and works ok with the smart functions. But, in the apps like Hulu and Netflix, you have to exit the program and reopen to watch another episode. The remote will not back out of an episode as I was told it would.

    I just attempted to setup remote today. My Samsung Tv setup without issue. I first it didn't look as if it was working with my Samsung Bluray, but it worked? I can't get my xfinity to cooperate. I will try again later. $9.99 so I would recommend

    Had to get this for a remote after my original was destroyed. Seems to not pair well with my LG tv. I have to pair the remote to the tv almost every time I need to use it. Since it is a smart TV, the remote is useless on that end. It’s pretty much for volume and on/off button.

    I bought this for my apartment, I often keep losing my Apple TV Remote and was tired of having to share my cell phone as I was using it as a remote. This remote connected to every Apple TV and 2 different Brands of TV (Samsung and Toshiba) with ease. Very Functional.

    Bought this as a replacement for a Roku TV remote. Turns out none of the Roku codes will work if you have a TV with Roku built in. You have to find the code for your brand of TV, and then some (not all) of the Roku buttons will work.

    I bought this on SALE. I programmed it easily for Roku, my Vizeo TV and Vizeo Soundbar. Good to have 3 in one. 3 more available if I need or can use. Alexa cube takes care of Amazon gadgets.

    I love that it had so many different devices that could be added to the control. Unfortunately it wasn’t compatible with my fire stick but i just needed it to replace the original control my tv had originally came with.
