Good remote for DVR control, bad item description
on December 31, 2009
I'm not sure why this is labeled as a kid friendly remote (December '09). The One-For-All OARP05S is a pretty capable and affordable remote control. It is well laid out, with the full set of DVR control buttons and color coded menu buttons. It is a learning remote (you can teach it things from other remotes that don't transfer with the codes), you can program 2 macro keys, and it has master power control. I gave it to my parents to control their DirecTV DVR for Christmas. I planned on going over the next day to program the remote, but they already had it set up by entering the codes for their TV and satellite receiver, which says something about how easy it is to use. I haven't had an opportunity to try the learning and macro functions, but I have no reason to believe that they won't work. You can download the manual under Service and Support at the One-For-All web site. I don't know why this remote isn't more popular, having looked closely at dozens of options, this remote is a winner for capability, simplicity, and affordability.
