To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
The only reason I bought this was to control my LG TV and Edifier speakers at the same time. Unfortunately this works with the LG TV but not with the Edifier speakers and there is no way for me to check this before buying. Returning the item.
That is didn't work, no matter how hard I tried - following the instructions to a T. Otherwise, it looks and feels like a good unit. The best part though was how Amazon was quick to refund all monies including postage.
This is a very good replacement remote or adjunct to one on which some keys have stopped working. It covers all of the major functions of my TV (and also my cable box as I discovered through experimenting).
However, at first it seemed like it was able to perform only the very basic functions on my 6-year old Toshiba TV like powering on or changing channels, but that others (source selection, TV configuration menu) were either unavailable or were working wonkily. That's because I used the codes listed in the enclosed instructions. I then went to the manufacturer's Web site (byjasco.com) and found there a whole different set of codes corresponding to the label inside the battery compartment. The first one I tried worked perfectly and I can now use the remote fully for my TV. I do not know if it works for Apple TV or networking capabilities since I do not find those things relevant for my needs and it would be picayune for me to complain about that.
It would be a good idea for GE to include a more useful and up-to-date version of the codes list in the packaging or to simply direct people to go to the Web site as a first step. Programming the remote is simple and very fast.
I also appreciate its slim-line profile and the light weight. And if you buy one of the versions in another finish than the standard basic black, it becomes more readily identifiable as you need to locate it. I have yet to try it for my Blu-Ray players, but it does seem to be lacking one-key access to some of the functionalities like time elasped or remaining; I would probably need to go into menus to use them with this remote. But that is a minor point and I consider myself fully satisfied.
Producto súper recomendado. Llevo más de 3 meses usándolo. Pros - Fácil instalación, instrucciones sencillas, sólo no olvides guardar el instructivo porque ahí vienen las claves, en menos de 5 minutos estaba cambiándole a mi canal favorito desde mi cama. - Elegante y de buenos materiales. Aguanta caídas y golpes, aunque obvio es para cuidarse, si se le da un mal trato, al paso del tiempo, sufrirá descomposturas. - bastantes botones, más de los que necesito, eso me gusta porque no le faltó ninguna opción. Contras. Ninguno
I bought this remote to be able to control my soundbar as well as my samsung tv. I thought I would have to switch from tv to aux to control the volume BUT there was a master volume feature where I can control the volume while being on the tv setting. So I thought I had the most amazing remote until i realized there was no back button! My tv is smart, so while in Netflix for example, I cant back out of where I am to the menu before. Very frustrating.
El control es ligero, las teclas responsivas y suaves al tacto. Lo compré para reemplazar el mando de mi Apple TV y en mi opinión es mucho mejor que el original. Además lo utilizo para controlar mi pantalla Sony sin ningún problema y con todas las funciones disponibles.
