If you have a combo device (TV/DVD combo, Cable Box/DVR combo, etc), avoid this. It does NOT handle these devices well. I have a TV/DVD combo, and my choices based on the given codes when I try to use my dvd player are either to have the selection keys (directions and OK) work, but play, pause, skip scene, etc not work; or vice versa. Also, when I hit certain buttons (menu in particular), it activates the TV functions for those buttons instead of the DVD functions. There is a work-around: you can use the "Learn" function to program totally off the original remote, but this can be tedious. If you do this, make sure to first "clear" the commands from the device you plan to teach because it will display the blinking light meaning "learning error, try again" every time if the button you try to teach already has a command programmed to it (would have been a good tip for the manual).

Speaking of the manual, a company the size of Philips should be able to afford someone to proofread the instruction manual. It gives tips for combo devices and uses the example of a TV/DVD combo (like mine) and in the middle of the description starts referring to a DVR instead without explanation (twice). Another example: a sentence in the book says "Refer to chapter 5.4 'Tips on learning'" but that is actually chapter 5.3; there is no chapter 5.4. This may seem to be relatively minor, but if the company didn't take the time to make sure errors like this weren't printed, I can't believe they dedicated time to troubleshooting the device itself either.

A pro is that it does work with the xbox 360, but you basically have to guess to see what does what aside from power and directions (exit is B, Y is channel up, etc).

This remote did exactly what it says it will do. It learned my Insignia TV and Dish Network DVR and did it in 3 mins. I had to make it learn my Insignia receiver but once I figured it out I then was able to customize the buttons and put the functions where I wanted them on the remote. The remote is shiny and the buttons looks slick which scared me a little but they actually stick to your finger so your finger doesnt slide off which is nice. It matches all my equipment which is a plus. When I first used the keys for my DVR it seemed to be sluggish to respond but after a few times it seemed to pick it up faster. Make sure you try the learning function is a low lit room or the bright lights will not allow it to work. I actually picked this up at Kmart for $14.99 yesterday.

I would NOT recommend this remote to anyone. The packaging specifically says "Full compatibility - Works with all your AV devices from all brands since 1990." In fact, it does not.

I have a Sony AV multi-channel receiver, model STR-DG710. The Philips remote will control SOME of the functions, but not all of them. In particular, it will not allow you to switch between inputs on the receiver, one of the major functions of the receiver. You can select some inputs, but not the satellite or DM port. Obviously switching between the satellite and, for example, DVD would be a very common action. I don't think that a device that will not perform a common, important function on a name-brand AV device should advertise itself as having "full compatibility."

I contacted Philips support and they basically said "well, sorry it doesn't work, maybe you should buy one of our other remotes." Yea, right. You already sold me one that doesn't work. Who in their right mind would buy a second remote from a company that doesn't back their products?

So, now, instead of having two new universal remotes I have two expensive paper weights.

Live and learn I guess. Lesson to us all ... never, Never, NEVER buy ANYTHING from Philips again.

This remote works great for my combination of 5 devices: Sharp tube TV, HD Tivo, Toshiba RS-TX20 Tivo/DVD recorder combo, Toshiba SD-H400 Tivo/DVD player combo, RCA DRC7005 DVR/DVD player combo. It had codes for them all, and even can control the HD Tivo and RS-TX20 separately, even though these two Tivos use the same remote code from the factory (you can change the code for one or the other through the Tivo menus). Every function I need is there and working.

Minor gripes: the skip ahead 30 seconds and skip back buttons are at the very bottom of the remote where they are awkward to reach - I used the learn feature to duplicate those two functions on the green and yellow cable box buttons; the four-way controller pad seems a bit stiff; I sometimes have to aim the remote a little off center to get the best response from the device.

Overall, I'm really happy with this remote. Considering the low price, it gets five stars.

Combination of pre-programed codes and learning function makes this a very powerful remote. I can control my smart tv, dvr/set-top box and audio without even changing the selected device. Build quality and button feel are just ok, but for $8 you can't complain.

Purchased this remote after reading the reviews. Was a bit worried with some of the negative ones, but since it was compatible with the the dish network figured I would give it a try. When it got here looked for the code for the dish and followed the directions which were easily understood. First code I entered was a hit and I could again changes the channels on the dish.

Then tried to look up the code for my TV. Not so lucky there, they did not have it. Tried using the 0 code that was suppose to work if your TV was not listed, but that did not work. So then tried the learning command. Again no luck, tried a few times, but could not get it to work. Figured since I really had only gotten it to replace my dish remote was not a big deal. Even though it would have been nice to only have to use one remote.

After reading the learn directions again realized I might have been doing it wrong. So today tried again to learn some of the TV remote commands. This time it was successful with one minor glitch. When I use the volume control it works backwards. When you turn it up it goes down and when you turn it down it goes up. Not a big deal since I can now control the dish and TV from the same remote. The off and on for the tv works fine. I did not program anything else yet because for now that is all I need, but it is nice to know that if I want to put more things on the new remote I can.
