Summary: most complicated remote I ever seen . I still don't know if it functioned correctly or not. It did some things and not others. compared to the one I got to replace this one, a most difficult device.
Summary: The remote works as advertised. The only minor issue I have is that the middle buttons between volume & channel sometimes get hit when I'm channel-surfing. If there was just a little more distance between the middle & edge buttons I wouldn't have that problem.
Summary: I bought this to"back up" the remote control that came with my new hdtv and my DirecTV HD remote control. It does almost everything that both of them do at a reasonable price. I am happy with it.
