This remote control is horrible. You have to be within a foot for the remote to work even somewhat consistently. I live in a dorm style apartment which is not very large at all. Sometimes if you're on the couch you can alternate hitting the buttons hard and soft and that will work every now and then. Spend a little bit more and get a remote that actually works from across the room, which is the point of a remote.
This is my preferred remote as it's easy to program, has large buttons and not too many of them. I have never had a remote that lasted as long as the t.v. so I put the original ones away and use them only to access the t.v. menu.
I use it for the bedroom TV, it's simple & woks fine so far!
Works fine if you have a TV, a DVD player, and a cable box. Otherwise, if you have say, a TV, a DVD player, and a VCR (or in my case a sound bar) you won't be able to program all three. The TV button can only be programmed for TVs, and the DVD/VCR button can only be programmed for DVD players and VCRs. DVD player codes start with a 3 and must be programmed to the DVD button. The problem is my Vizio Sound bar has a code that starts with 3 as well. I was going to program that to the SAT/Cable button, but that one will only accept codes that start with 5. I need to be able to program any button with any code.
if i did not have to give this product a star, it would not have one. It definatly does not deserve even one star. In the event that I buy a remote, I expect it to actually work with my TV like it says it will. The only buttons that actually work are the power button, channel buttons, and volume butons. None of the other ones work, so we cannot even do a channel search or anything with this remote. I thought buying one of the most expensive remotes that walmart had in my local store would have meant having a half ways decent product. If I hadnt ripped the package open to get into it, this would be going back to the store. DO NOT BUY THIS REMOTE!!!!!!
