      Worst Remote< Worst Customer Service

      While I was not necessarily pleased with the remote, I didn't hate it at first as long as it did what I needed it to do. It was set up initially then I bought an upgraded blue ray player and I also purchased a new projector. Of course one cannot update the remote without their software which most companies will not provide. So, the remote is worthless and I cannot get it updated without paying which I will not do. I purchased the remote through my home builder which uses a company to set up the home theater. The company that installed the remote seems to have little or no interest in coming back to my house to update. I also called Universal Remote and spoke to them and they were beyond rude and absolutely worthless. They (a supervisor) told me to just buy another brand if I didn't like it. Why in the world would anyone purchase this remote over another brand where it can be updated via their web site is beyond me. I'll just buy another brand and throw this new remote in the trash where it belongs.

      I have had my share of universal remotes, from infra red to almost every model of Logitech. Most of them have issues. Some much more than others.This remote is a good one, but here are the negatives. Way too expensive.You cannot control or change it on a computer or otherwise. Must have the geek squad to come in and via computer they have things fixed, changed, added through their division. So you cannot re sync it or do anything on your own.The screen is way to small, so if u need glasses and don't wear them, forget seeing anything on the screen..When the antenna device included goes red, u can forget about the remote working.Sometimes u need to change its location.

      Solved the problems I was having with prior remote

      I have had this remote for a short time however it seems to have resolved the issues I was having with the prior remote with the signal being received/recognized by the components. The set up process is somewhat lengthy and required the Geek squad to come out to my home twice in order to complete the set up which is why I rated ease of set up as a 2. The instruction booklet does not provide adequate information on the functions of the remote so I have been learning by trial and error. However, that being said, I am pleased with how the remote has performed thus far. As to its durability time will tell although it appears to be well made and durable.

      The remote does what it is designed to do. I wish there was an instructional training video. The instruction given earlier today was excellent (thorough, approachable instructor, understandable, intuitive to my requests AND built upon them), but I am concerned that due to expected time away from the remote I will forget some of the instruction. I wish the screen was larger to permit better viewing. I wish there was background button lighting to permit use in a dim lit room. However, it is wonderful to see the screen of our television and not have numerous electronic equipment about the room. To turn on other equipment from anywhere in the house blows my mind. Thank you for such an innovative remote.

      Died...dead...DOA!

      2 weeks of working fine, the remote went completely dead. I took the batteries out and put them back in, replaced them with new batteries, and it's completely black. I called the Best Buy supervisor, who's contacting the Geek Squad "expert," to get him to call me, which has been a major problem, but that's another story. I have to take it into Best Buy, swap it out for a brand new one, and get back home for the Geek squad guy to reprogram the new one...IF he calls me. I hope this isn't going to be a fight. I just want my equipment to work is all. Not complicated! If I get a new one AND it works, I'll recommend this to a friend...IF!

      Best remote on the market with only 1 flaw

      This remote is great! Definitely worth the money. It runs my 2 TVs, 2 cable boxes, Xbox, wii, and sound bar beautifully. No other unit on the market could run both my cable boxes simultaneously. The only flaw, which is a major one is the fact that only geek squad can program the remote. It took a couple visits to get all the kinks out of my system, sometimes you just need trial and error. But the remote doesn't come with the programming software! I was mad that I spent that much money but can't program it myself. If you don't mind needing geek squad to hook it up, this is definitely the remote for you.

      Does not live up to sales pitch

      It does not control TVs independently. Only controls cable boxes and other devices. The sales associate understood that we were getting 3 TVs on the same wall and that each TV should operate independently. The Geek Squad installer/programmer said IF we purchased another base device then POSSIBLY each TV could be fully controlled independently. Already $600 into this thing. Another $150 for another base and another $150 charge to reprogram the remote. No thank you.

      Worst remote I have ever owned.

      My biggest issue and disappointment in Geek Squad/Best Buys recommendations is the URC X-7 remote control. I absolutely hate the this remote! I’m sure it’s of high quality, but it is the most un-user friendly, complicated and poorly designed remote I have ever seen. And what makes it even more sickening is the price I paid for the remote and the programming cost. Save your money and do not let anyone talk you into buying this thing!
