Summary: Remote does a lot, but is bulky. And the annoying thing is that the remote keeps losing its programming for certain stored devices. It is easy to reprogram, but sometimes it is as often as daily. Very annoying!
Summary: This 6-in-1 universal remote control by RCA was a disappointment. I tried to get this to work for at least an hour, patiently plugging in code after code after code so that my father could have his universal remote all ready for him to use; but I was still completely dumbfounded and stumped. The device is just not that easy to program--or, to be fair, perhaps the one we bought was broken before we even started to use it!
Universal remote without universal learning feature

Summary: This device will work very well if you find a code that provides exact match for the remote that you want to replace. Typically, I need two to three additional features (such as a MENU or CC on TV, or VCR) that are not provided by any code for the brand of the device I have. Of course, this should not be generalized as I just have five particular devices that I need to control. Well in my case something important for me is amiss for each of them.
Summary: I listened to the last reviewer and bought two of these also. One simply would not work at all -- we returned it. The other one would not recognize many of its own published programming codes (published 'right there' in its own little operating manual) including some which we really needed it to recognize so that we could program our brand new Toshiba 37" LCD TV (purchased on Amazon with great satisfaction --- just to prove that not all my reviews are negative).
Summary: This is actually my second remote of this model type. I had to buy a second one because my parrot ate all the buttons off the old one. It runs all my devices flawlessly, including my old Zenith TV that is over 16 years old. It's easy to program and operate. I would not hesitate to recommend this to anyone in the market for a new multifunction remote.
