Good but lacks ergonomics

J. Bubb, Amazon
3 weeks ago
  • Summary: Works well but suffers from a lack of ergonomics and bad layout. It's great that there is a separate power button for both TV and the Xbox. However the biggest drawback of this remote is the shape of the buttons. Most of the buttons are the exact same size and shape. This makes it really difficult to use in the dark or without looking at the remote to see what button you are pressing.

Perfect

Daniel, Amazon

  • Summary: This remote works perfectly with my Xbox 360. However when I tried to set it for my tv, the instructions said to hold the "Mute" button and the "5" button at the same time before inputing the code for the tv. I misread it as hold the "Mute" button and "5 other random buttons" to set it to my tv. Other than this misleading detail, this remote works great.

PRODUCT IS LINE OF SIGHT!

Michael Baker, Amazon
9 January 2015
  • Summary: Just a heads up to people who purchase this, I almost returned it because I thought it was defective: this product is an incredibly line of sight product. The controllers for the Xbox 360 are RF wireless and can interact with the Xbox almost anywhere. I thought this remote would be the same... its not. Remote Effective Range: I have control of TV and Xbox at a distance of up to around 20 feet away, 5 feet wide and 5 feet tall. Remote Functionality: Fantastic!

Nice remote for Xbox 360

Spencer Neal, Amazon
15 November 2014
  • Summary: I chose this remote over the new one because I Have the original Xbox 360 and I wanted it to match. I also liked that it has the lighted buttons. I liked that it wasn't expensive and also includes basic functionality for your television built in. I am going to use this for my old Xbox 360 which is going to be set up as a media center extender instead of renting a cable box for the bedroom.

  • Summary: The remote works well with the TV and it was easy to program. The problem was with the XBOX and the instructions do not specify it. You need to go into the settings, controller options and enable it to be controlled by a media remote. I had to search to find this out, I almost returned the remote thinking it was bad.

Very nice remote that works imperfectly, so far

El Evaluator "LeoEscuchoVeo: ErgoSum", Amazon
13 July 2014
  • Summary: This remote works mostly very satisfactorily, and it learned my Sony TV's program quickly and quite automatically. I've only used it to control playback of recorded videos using my new Xbox 360's media extender function, and only for a couple of weeks; but, I've used it a lot with many World Cup, Tour de France, and other recordings, and using all or most media center functions.

This is a nice remote that also allows you to program the TV ...

Bob Sanderson, Amazon

  • Summary: This is a nice remote that also allows you to program the TV power. I wish it had a 'Windows Media Center' action button to jump right into WMC app. The original Xbox 360 (white) media remote had this. (If anyone knows how to jump into it, please comment!

Does what you would expect it to

Daniel S. Shafer, Amazon
4 May 2014
  • Summary: It controls both my Xbox 360s easily, which makes watching Netflix a breeze. It also works on HTPC's such as running an Intel NUC with the IR built in. There really is not much you can say about this device. The Pros: Works with TVs pretty easily, even if you don't know the code you can basically program it easily to do the basic functions such as input, turning TV off/on, volume, etc. Works with other devices running Windows with compatible IR receivers.
