2 out of 5 eggsGood try, but not quite

Pros: Works on just about any device. Was able to get it to control multiple DirectTivos in the same room. Some of the Wifi features are cool, like the weather report. Just about any button can be customized independently for each device, or even assigned to operate a different device even when on another device... e.g. The volume buttons can be set to operate the TV volume when any device except the stereo or DVD player is chosen, then it operates the stereo volume because we are either listening to the stereo or watching a movie with the surround sound on.

Cons: Those well positioned buttons in the center of the control are for programming the remote and have nothing to do with operating your devices which of course is what you want to do 99% the time you are using the remote. For that you will have to use the awkward tiny buttons at the bottom, which will cause hand cramps from trying to hold the stupid, heavy, and slippery remote by the very tip while operating the buttons one handed.
The button action is complete bunk and many times the remote doesn't even sense your button presses.
Also don't push a button too many times too quick, or the remote will freeze for several seconds, often 10-30, additional pushes to see if its working yet will just lengthen the freeze time.
While it will supports multiple DTivos, plan on manually programming most of the buttons that make the DTivo useful, because they are not included in the default device.
The batteries only last a couple hours before needing recharge and they cannot be replaced.

Other Thoughts: Great idea, but less than useful follow through.

5 out of 5 eggsNot perfect, But pretty darn good

Pros: Only Wi-Fi remote out there, great guide on the remote, even can send and receive email. Nice bright easy to read screen, buttons light up nice and bright, works just as advertised. Scroll the listings, get info on your show and if that's what you want to watch just hit OK and it tunes the TV to that channel.

Cons: A little time consuming to program, but most universal remotes are if you want them to do every function, buttons are on the small side. May be to complicated for the gadget novice.

Other Thoughts: I dumped cable and get my HDTV over the air, so even though I could see what was on I needed to fire up my PC to look up what is on later. Not anymore, now I just check the remote and can even set a reminder so when what I want comes on it lights up and beeps to let me know then I hit OK and it changes the TV to that channel, Learned my HDTV, Receiver, DVD player, and Philips DVR with no trouble. I'm very pleased with it.

1 out of 5 eggsSupport Not Good

Pros: Looks nice

Cons: It's AR product.

Other Thoughts: Watch out for poor AR product support. It takes days for them to respond. When they do it's not helpful. And once porduct is out of warranty forget talking to them. They recommend buying a new one if yours breaks.
