Acoustic Research Xsight Touch Advanced Universal Remote (ARRX18G)
It's Simple. Actually, It's Really Simple.
The Xsight Touch Advanced Universal Remote will change your home entertainment experience forever. You can start using it right out of the box through the remote-guided setup on the full-color LCD touch screen. Then tap into the real power of this remote through the EZ-RC website. Expand and customize features to control your entire home theater with simple one-touch activities like Watch TV or Listen to CD. No more having to write directions for the grandparents or baby sitter. Create personalized, full-color profiles with channel favorites for Mom, Dad, and even the kids. It's that simple. Bring it home and enjoy!
So simple. So advanced. So personal.
Remote-guided setup gets you started in no time — no manual required. Control up to 18 components from thousands of brands, with support for the most up-to-date home theater functionality. The EZ-RC website provides guided online setup for powerful and personal functions including one-touch activities like Watch TV or Listen to CD for controlling your whole home theater with a single button-press. Create personal profiles (up to 6) for each family member, and even guests, through the EZ-RC website, including favorite channel icons.
It can even beautify your home.
Add the Xsight Touch RF Extender (sold separately) and control up to 6 out-of-sight devices from a range of up to 100ft. Hide the clutter and keep unsightly components behind cabinet doors or even in another room! The Xsight Touch built-in RF feature works automatically with DIRECTV RF-capable satellite receiver (no RF extender needed).
Easy to use.
Remote backlighting lets you use the Xsight Touch in any lighting environment. And its rechargeable battery lets you say goodbye to replacements, with a recharge cradle that's designed to let you use the remote even when its recharging. The remote's built-in tilt switch senses when you pick it up and automatically turns on the LCD screen for instant use. And the slider bar under the LCD screen makes going through the Xsight Touch user interface a snap.

First off, the remote is very comfortable in your hand. The weight distribution is not perfect, but its not bad at all.
Next, many reviewers have commented and complained about the set-up process. No, it's not perfect. But it is far from terrible. I was able to set up 5 components (3D TV, 3D Blu-Ray, DirecTV, AppleTV, and an OLD Yamaha receiver) in about 15 minutes. I then added my favorites which took about another 15 minutes. Lastly I created my activities, which took another 15 minutes. All in all, I set up a remote from a pretty intuitive web interface from scratch in the time it takes to get a pizza delivered. Between all of the components - there were only 4 operations that I needed to add to the default set-up from the website (all from my TV (Yahoo!, Media Play, InternetTV, and something else I cannot remember off the top of my head.) Not bad in my opinion.
My only complaint about the entire set-up process was moving the favorites around. After I set up 18 favorites, I realized that I wanted HBO on the first page. Instead of remapping the current button (ESPN2), I deleted it, and then everything shifted up one space. Had I remapped ESPN2 by changing the icon and channel number, it would have been no problem whatsoever. But once I deleted ESPN2, I had to go through 3 different pages, remapping 1 button per page so that my favorites remained in the order I wanted them to be in.
I did not even attempt to add my components via the remotes interface. In fact, I never pressed a single button on the remote until it asked me to test it after adding my first component.
For anyone considering this remote against the Harmony One - do yourself a favor and give this remote a try. It does everything the One does PLUS it includes the RED, GREEN, YELLOW, BLUE buttons, PLUS it includes RF out of the box. For 1/3 of the cost of the One, you can have a very functional remote that is easy to use and very intuitive as long as you put some time into programming it properly.
I do love the idea behind this remote and for what I paid, it delivers something equitable. However, I paid what most standard universal remotes cost, because of my deal. I would expect that a product as supreme as this *should* be to function more effectively. I don't regret my purchase for the sale price (that much) but I would never buy anything from this company again. This product is not what its cracked up to be.
