Supports Popular Streamers
First Universal Remote Dedicated to Streamers
The Inteset 4-in-1 universal IR remote is designed to work directly with the most popular streaming devices. From the solid feel to the velvet coating on the back, when you hold the INT-422 remote you know it’s a high-quality product. It has most of the features found only in high-end remotes but at a fraction of the cost. Those features include volume and channel lock, macros, custom button labels, key punch-through, full backlighting and a huge built-in A/V device database. If a device is not found you can quickly program those functions with the remote’s intuitive learning capability.
The 4 buttons at the top of the remote are pre-programmed for Apple TV (A), Xbox One (B), Media Center (C) and Roku (D) so that you can use the remote immediately with these streaming devices. You can easily assign any A/V device such as your TV or cable box to the unused device buttons or program over any of the pre-programming. Applying the included stickers above your programmed buttons helps users find the right keys effortlessly. The Red, Green, Yellow and Blue buttons function as the standard Xbox color control buttons (B, A, Y, X). For Media Center, they invoke the TV, Movies, Pictures and Video screens. For Roku, they invoke the Netflix, Amazon and other apps.
You can control FireTV (excluding Stick and Dongle) and the PS4 if you install a Flirc IR receiver.
Designed to support popular IR capable streamer set-top boxes and over 100,000 other devices including:
- Apple TV
- Roku (excluding Roku Stick)
- Xbox One
- Nvidia Shield (1st Gen, 2nd Gen Pro)
- Xbox 360
- Fire TV (using a Flirc IR receiver)
- Windows Media Center
- Matricom G-Box
- Popcorn Hour
- WD TV
- and others.
Maps Buttons from the Original Remote
Intuitive Button Mapping and Custom Labels
Inteset ensures that with each device, the button mapping is intuitive, complete, and closely matches the original remote.
Apply the included label stickers to further customize the remote for your specific devices and buttons. Now there is no second-guessing as to what button does what.
Macros are Easy to Create
Marco Support - One Button Press Does it All!
With the INT-422, you can easily program up to 32 commands into a single button. So, for example, you could turn on or off all of your devices, or switch inputs and change a channel to any of your favorites. The multiple symbol buttons on the bottom of the remote can be used for your macro's.
Finding Device Codes is No Problem
Extremely Simple Setup!
Set up your remote in minutes using our Device Code Lookup tool found on our website. Just choose the device type (i.e. Cable Box), manufacture and code. Then, the functionality for that device will be mapped instantly to the applicable remote buttons. You can set define up to 4 devices. Setups can take advantage of the remote's advanced features such as:
- Learning (from the original remote)
- Build button macros
- Set volume lock
- Set channel lock
- Set punch through buttons
Nvidia Shield (1st Gen & Pro)
The device code for Nvidia Shield (1st Gen & 2nd Gen Pro) in the INT422-3 is "04918". The 2nd Gen Standard Nvidia Shield requires a FLIRC IR Receiver.(See FLIRC Setup in our Forum).The Pro still has an IR Receiver built in so you do not need the Flirc.
TV Smart Hub Programming
If you have a TV with a Smart Hub you can easily take advantage of those features by adding a simple program that uses the Display button to access your Smart Hub capabilities. Instructions for this are provided on the same page as our Device Setup Code Lookup page under the heading "User Guides and Other Documentation"

1. ERGONOMICS. The body of the remote is nearly the perfect size and shape. It's not too chunky nor too thin, nor too long, nor weighted oddly. It's quite similar to the shape of a TiVo 'peanut' remote, a design for which I have never found an equal. The back side is covered in a material that's smooth but also grippy (very similar to the MX-500). You can adjust your hand position easily, but it's easy to grip and doesn't feel that it's going to slip out of your hand at any second like a wet fish. I'm looking at you, URC-R6 and Harmony 650!
2. BUTTON LAYOUT. The button layout is excellent, especially so if you're used to the aforementioned TiVo remotes (and very similar to most DVD/Blu-Ray/TV remotes). The buttons are plenty large enough for my big fingers, differentiated nicely by shape and size, spaced far enough apart that you never have to worry about hitting two at a time, and all raised enough to easily discern by feel alone. I'm looking at you, URC-R40!
3. BUTTON COMPLEMENT. The button complement is among the best I've ever seen on a programmable/learning remote. Not only are all the basic functions covered, but in addition to those, we have the four colored buttons, the six 'PIP' buttons (ON/OFF, FRS, +, SWAP, MOVE, -), plus the LIVE and ZOOM buttons. Also present are DISPLAY, INPUT, and back (circular arrow pointing counterclockwise). Of all these, only my TiVo DVR uses them, and that only about half, which leaves a LOT of room to program those buttons with extra functions from your original remotes. Though really, only my receiver has enough functions to even need all the buttons on this remote. In particular, having an INPUT button is invaluable. It means that in each remote mode (A, B, C, D), I can program the input button to change the receiver to the input for that device. Certainly, the more expensive remotes can change the input, but usually only in a macro or on the 'soft' buttons next to their LCD screen.
4. BACKLIGHTING. The backlighting on this remote is great. It's a nice orange color, which is far easier to see and read labels on than blue, yet a bit brighter than red. It's not super dim like some more expensive remotes - looking at you, Harmony 650! However, even without the backlight, the buttons are so well labeled with a fairly large font, that they are easily readable even if you just have a little bit of light in the room. But really, with the layout and size/shape differentiation, you could pretty easily operate this by touch alone given time.
5. PROGRAMMING. Programming of the remote could hardly be easier. The instructions are well written and easy to follow, and in just an hour or so I had it programmed and working my four devices (Receiver, Blu-ray, TiVo, TV), including learning functions not present in the pre-programmed code. The only quirks I found are in the learning mode. On step 5, where you press the button on the Inteset onto which you're going to learn a new function, it says the LED will stay lit for three seconds. It's actually flashing (at a very rapid rate), so I thought it was defective at first and wasn't going to learn anything. I discovered that is what they mean by 'lit', and you have to press your source remote while it's flashing rapidly. Also, it says if you don't press any button within 10 seconds it exits programming mode, which is fine - but it seemed more like 6-7 seconds to me. It seemed to time-out a lot faster than I would hope. But, the great part is that you don't have to repeat the entire process for each button. Once one button/function is learned and accepted (two LED blinks), just press your next button and go! That really speeds up the learning process and is excellent. I didn't run into any situations where it failed to learn a command from my original remotes - not something I can say for any of my URC products! I found programming macros to be equally straightforward and simple. As for the learning capacity, I haven't reached it yet. The manual says it's between 42 to 75 buttons depending on the original IR code. Along with the preprogrammed buttons, that seems to be enough for four devices, even learning almost all the buttons which normally aren't used by my devices.
6. GENERAL SETUP THOUGHTS. As I mentioned before, having an INPUT button allows me to program that button to switch the receiver's input to the current device. My TiVo is the only component for which I used the colored buttons, so I instead programmed the Red and Green buttons to be a discrete OFF and discrete ON, respectively, for my receiver and TV, and a power toggle for my Blu-Ray. This allows me to then use the power button at the top right to be used as a global (device independent) macro to turn everything on. I then created another global macro on the ON/OFF button near the bottom left, to turn everything off. I used the SWAP, FRS, and MOVE buttons to create three more global macros which will switch to either my computer, TiVo, or Blu-Ray, the only devices we really use - switching the receiver and TV inputs as needed. In that sense, they're like the 'Activity' buttons on a Harmony. I programmed the INFO button to operate the 'Display' button of my devices, for consistency with the TiVo, as essentially their Display function does the same thing as the TiVo INFO button. Then I programmed the DISPLAY button to operate my TV's 'Wide' function so that it's available in all modes. In any case, I really love how many buttons this remote has, which gives you ultimate flexibility to set it up in a way that's logical to YOU and your system. A final note about MACROS: I was pleased to learn that the macro will leave the remote in the device mode of the last command sent in the macro. So for example, if you have a macro which turns on every component, switches inputs, etc, and the last command sent was the power command for your Blu-Ray player, the remote will stay in the device for your Blu-Ray. Sweet. I have read that some remotes with macro capability do not do this, but it's such a common sense idea that it should be the standard for all remotes with macros.
7. DRAWBACKS. The downsides to this remote are few and relatively minor, but I'd be remiss to omit them.
a. Let's start with the backlight. There is no dedicated button to activate it, nor is there a motion sensor like on some more expensive units. I can't recall another backlit remote which didn't have at least one of these ways to activate the backlight. For this unit, you have to push one of the function buttons to activate the light. That's fine, really - you just need to try to remember to use a button which isn't going to adversely affect your viewing. I also find the backlight doesn't stay lit as long as I would like, nor is there a way to change the time. Also, I find it curious that it blinks out when you press a button, after it's been activated.
b. There are only four devices. For a large system with lots of components, that may make this remote control a non-starter. However, depending on what those components are, you may be able to get by. Realistically our viewing consists either of TiVo (which does OTA TV as well as Netflix/Amazon/YouTube streaming) or Blu-Ray/DVD. So that's four devices. Sure, I have a separate CD player and a VCR, but they get used so seldom that it's not a huge deal. I can just get out their original remotes, or get off my butt. Though really, since I have two devices (Receiver and TV) that don't use the transport functions, I could actually program the CD/VCR transport functions into those devices, if I were so inclined. Still, for the price, this does way more than I was expecting. I would rather purchase two or three of these units and program them all, vs most all of the 6-12 device units.
c. The button feel isn't great, it's a little mushy rather than solid. It doesn't compare to the TiVo remotes in that regard, but I haven't found a programmable remote which does, so can't say this issue is exclusive to the Inteset.
d. Honestly can't think of any other faults right now, but will update this review if I find any!
-It's a remote
-The layout of buttons is poor and frustrating when operating a cable box, even when setting up custom buttons. The volume buttons and "OK" button and surrounding directional navigation buttons are way too far apart. It seems like there are a lot of buttons but in reality I need a few more up near the "OK" button. Also you cannot program the record button for some reason which is dumb.
-The back light shuts off way too soon, 5 seconds? Why? Ridiculous. Also back light shuts off when you press any buttons so if you look down in the dark while pressing a button such as volume, the remote is black and invisible. Quick, you have 4 more seconds to let your eyes focus in the dark to look for the poorly placed button you want to find! :-/
-The buttons require way too much effort to push and are not positive, very mushy and nasty and cheap feeling buttons.
-No separate indicator for which mode it is in when using remote, only one LED showing you are pressing a button itself. It could just light up the individual device button to let you know what mode you are in but it does not do that either. This is annoying and requires you to constantly push the device button again to make sure you are in the correct mode since there is no way of knowing otherwise.
-On each device I had to basically set up just about every single button as a learned custom button because the included codes did not work for much more than turning device on and maybe a few simple functions. I have no problem doing this but it is a pain and this remote doesn't learn very easily. The learning process seems buggy and inconsistent even in a dark room with no florescent lights on and the TV turned off to avoid interference with the process. More often than not it will not learn the button.
-Now the biggest problem: The buttons are the type that have what seems like a built in defect where they stop working after a few months. Frequently used buttons stop working after only a few months. Sometimes you can take these remotes apart and clean the silicone that seeps out of the reverse side of the button where it makes contact with the PCB.
I am convinced the manufacturers make these things malfunction on purpose to give them a very short life cycle. All the clear silicone (or whatever it is) that seeps out of the back of the contact pads makes the contacts not conductive anymore, and they quit working. You need to open the remote and clean the buttons and contacts with alcohol or acetone and they usually will work again for a few more months until more of that clear goo leaks out. Most people will just throw it away and buy another remote.
I would not recommend this remote for that reason alone even if the rest of it was perfect.
The learning remote that I am comparing this against is the excellent Universal URC WR7 which was great. If these companies would just copy that size, button layout, and feature set, they would have a great remote but it seems no one has figured that out. There is a reason that remote was so popular, but too bad the Universal URC WR7 is no longer produced because it was great, especially for the price when you could get them new for 20 bucks. The only problem they had was the dreaded button failing problem but at least they lasted a few years, not a few months like this Inteset INT-422.
I will keep looking for a simple, inexpensive, high quality, and well designed learning remote because this INT-422 is not it. Of course Inteset will just keep selling this seriously flawed remote without making any improvements. Lazy!
