You just got a brand new Blu-ray player--that's great news. That means you'll soon be enjoying the best Hollywood has to offer. It also means you'll have another remote control on your coffee table. How many does that make, now? Five? Six? It doesn't have to be that way.
Universal Remote Control's consumer line of remote controls lets you control your TV, Blu-ray, sound system and cable box all with the same handsome remote--all for a lot lower cost than you might imagine. If you have a full-blown home theater system, or plan to have one installed, you may need one of URC's more sophisticated custom solutions. But if you are looking for an easy way to replace all of those old remotes with a simple but powerful solution, look no further. Let the URC-WR7 make your home entertainment experience easier and more fun.
URC Consumer remote controls: helping you control the experience, one component at a time.
Perfect for DIY, the URC-WR7 replaces up to seven individual remote controls in an affordable, user-friendly design, with bright backlighting for ease of use. URC's WR7 remote works with thousands of A/V devices and has multiple set-up options, including the unique "Quick Set-up" that does almost all of the work for you. You can also use device auto-search and a "Learning" feature for flexible setup applications.
In addition to being a great replacement for up to seven remote controls, the URC-WR7 delivers much more. MacroPower is a very useful way to make a lot of things happen with one button push. For example, in most home theaters, to watch television, the user must turn on the TV, then turn on the Cable Box or the Satellite Receiver, then turn on the Surround Sound system for sound. Instead of pressing all of those buttons one at a time, MacroPower enables you to turn on all of these components, in the sequence you want, with one button push.
The WR7 uses one-button "Macros" to allow you turn on your TV, cable box, DVD player and surround sound system all at the same time with the press of one button. The WR7 supports up to 13 separate macros. The URC-WR7 also comes equipped with four customizable "My Favorites" buttons. You can program up to five favorite channels per button. The URC-WR7 can control most IR (Infrared) operated lights, too, so you can adjust room light without leaving the comfort of your easy chair.
The WR7 remote is designed to automatically turn itself off if a button is pressed for more than 30 seconds. This prevents battery power from being depleted should the remote accidentally slip between the couch cushions.
With SimpleSound, the Volume and Mute buttons always control the sound regardless of what screen is displayed, even those that do not have their own built-in volume control such as TiVO and DVD players. This is set up by using Copy and Paste to copy the commands from your TV or Audio system to the Volume and Mute buttons on all of your other devices. So no matter what, there are no hassles when you quickly need to reduce or mute sound for a phone call or doorbell.
This "Punch Through" enables you to program the WR7 remote so that either the Cable or TV Channel Controls (CHANNEL UP, DOWN, LAST, CHANNEL NUMBERS 0-9, +10 and ENTER) will also operate in other component modes on the remote control.
This "Punch Through" enables you to program the URC-WR7 so that DVD or DVR Transport Controls (PLAY, STOP, FF, REW, PAUSE, SKIP and RECORD) will also operate in other component modes on the remote control.
This "Punch Through" enables you to program the URC-WR7 so that CBL or DVD OSD Controls (MENU, GUIDE, INFO, EXIT, SEL and 4 Cursor Controls) will also operate in other component modes on the remote control.
This feature will allow you to literally teach the URC-WR7 commands from other remote controls; when the remote is in learning mode, you can line the two remotes facing each other and transfer commands with just a few buttons presses. Press any button on the WR7 remote that you want to teach a command to. For example, if you want to teach the MUTE button on the WR7 remote the TV Mute command from the other remote, first press the MUTE button on the WR7 remote and the TV component button LED light will blink once indicating that the WR7 remote is ready to learn the command. This way, your remote is never obsolete--the URC-WR7 grows with your home theater.

After many remotes it took me a while to find a good one. We were used to the Tivo and very much liked the layout of the Tivo remote. Read morePublished 1 month ago by renate swart
We have been using this remote for several months now. It controls the audio unit, the television, the Apple TV, and the DVD/VCR player. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Love-a-great-tool
