Summary: I originally bought this remote to control 3 devices in my guest bedroom. I soon discovered that this remote overcame the one shortcoming of the Vizio remote described here: http://www.amazon.com/review/R29WLD3IFASWL9/ref=cm_cr_rdp_perm So, I bought a second remote to control that Vizio HDTV (in my master bedroom). I doubt I will ever consolidate the various remotes in my home theater room. Mostly, I see no need for it.
Summary: With the codes it works for a Samsung LN52B750 and a Motorola DCH3200 cable box. With the two Denon codes available it does nothing for an AVR790. Not one button works anything on the receiver.
Works well for most devices, but missing a few buttons for Tivo

Summary: I like this remote well considering what I paid for it. It has worked perfectly for most of the devices I intended to use it with. Programming it is pretty simple using the auto code search. However, when it cannot find a code, you have to enter the code manually and the instructions it came with do not list all of the codes available for this remote.
Summary: I have a couple of different remotes and I bought a pair of these when they were on sale for less then $5. They are really nice and I appreciate the extra features of which several were lacking on my other remotes. I very much like that I can change the view (Wide,Zoom or Standard) on my TV as well as other extras that my other remotes do not have. I also like when you press any key it will light up the buttons for a short time.
Summary: I bought this remote because I had the identical remote but 6-in-1 rather than 8-in-1 and loved it. Unfortunately, I wore out the MUTE and VOLUME buttons because of loud commercials. <g> The other problem with the 6-in-1 was that the OK button did not function with DirecTV in scrolling menus. I had read a review that this one contained updated codes for DirecTV but either the one I received is an older version or the reviewer had an older DirecTV box.
