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.
Bought GE 40081 so we could control TV, volume, Roku (Telstra TV) etc from one remote. Works with Telstra TV out of the box and only took a couple of minutes to program for our TV and Bluray/Home theatre system. Has a comprehensive list of codes included for hundreds of devices. The backlight is also great and fast delivery from US 👍👍👍
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 (byjaco.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.
Nice, clean design. Does everything it claims to do. Came with clear instructions and a long list of codes for programming my devices. It worked with my ancient DVD/VCR unit and my flat screen. I'm still trying to contact the brand Lepy for the code for my amplifier. The remote is light and slightly smaller than I expected, which is pleasant. It's very thin, like my smart phone, but lighter and narrower. I don't know what the ABCD buttons do, but everything I've wanted to do has been easy so far. I will definitely modify my review if it breaks early on. So far, I'm loving it.
La única razón para quitarle una estrella es que las instrucciones indican qué hay que esperar a una “luz roja” que confirma que el control está en modo programación, pero el control no genera ninguna luz roja, después de probar con varias pilas y hacer intentos descubrimos que había que esperar el tiempo marcado por las instrucciones pero que no hay ninguna luz que confirme el modo de programación. Después de eso, los códigos de los aparatos los pude programar sin problema.
También sería bueno tener una confirmación cuando se envía un comando a los aparatos “con la luz roja” pero... fuera de eso funciona cómo está descrito.
This had exactly the number of devices I wanted to control (4). The instructions focused on the key things I wanted to do: have a master volume control my sound system. Setup using the codes was simple and quick (just had to look up codes on a peice of paper.). I noticed the codes for my remote were not posted on the Jasco website. Also there was only 1 Roku code, but the * button didn't seem to do anything, so I couldn't use the Options function on the Roku. This was kind of annoying, but otherwise the functions on my TV, BluRay player and Sound bar all worked.
The remote itself is cheap but not totally unattractive. I would recommend it for traditional, small home TV setup. Not useful if you have a lot of home automation like wi-fi lights, and additional speakers and other things to control. This will only control Infrared devices and needs line of sight.
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
Had the very expensive Logitech remote, things sucked through batteries like a bottle fed baby. Had it for years (6) until it finally stopped working and the display was full of dust from use. Anyhow never dawned on me to even consider getting another remote cause the Logitech was the price of a small house. This was a dream to get. Simple to use and set up. Did the auto set up took a bit but it worked. Got it set up for my Samsung TV and my Bose speaker system. AND the batteries last forever. Love the light up as well nice
