    overpriced programming

    I was told when I purchased numerous items that there was a $400.00 charge for installation and programming. Like any reasonable person I thought that meant for the install of the TV and projector I purchased but found out later that it was to program the remote and they were not installing the TV or projector but just dropping them off. Also I told the installer I was using component cable now but was getting HDMI the next day. he said he would have to come back to program the remote for HDMI, have called over 10 times with no response to come back so the $400.00 programming cost was for nothing because I can not use the remote after I had HDMI cables installed. I will never use Best Buy again. Spent over 12k and got mislead and overcharged.

    Terrible Value

    With all the remotes out there, including Caavo, this one feels antiquated. It doesn't recognize all devices (Apple TV) and you can't program it yourself. Best Buy will charge you $99 for a tech to come out. So if you add a component, you need to schedule a tech visit. Customer service is also poor. This one also stopped working for some reason, and I'm left with a very expensive paperweight.

    This is the 3rd and last remote for this brand. I have gone through 3 of these within 1 year. The Geek Squad guys are great, but this remote is awful. I even got the remote RF Reader that they recommended. The remote just stops working.

    We are a few weeks into the purchase and the remote works pretty well so far. The geek squad programmed it and only occasionally does it behave unexpectedly. Turning it on and off fixes the issue. A good product that allows you to keep all components in a separate room so there are no set top boxes in sight. Very nice!

    Good Remote

    Really good remote, but set up needs to be done by a tech. No software included to do it yourself. Anytime you change components a tech needs to come out and reprogram the remote which can get expensive. Otherwise , I'm happy with this purchase and the remote's performance.

    This is truly the best universal remote I have ever bought, used and found truly meets its purpose without having to compromise by using it for most, but not all, of my devices. 100% love it.

    Have been a loyal Harmony user for years. Had the Harmony Elite and hated the touch screen, so Magnolia recommended the URC. Great products.

    Great remote if you have dual zones (or more). Easy to understand and you can’t mess it up!
