Amazon.com Product Description
This thing Rocks!
Its definitely worth it, and the high power IR led makes it all that much better. Too bad you can't beam with it. Also unlike a 'learning remote' you might get, this doesn't forget when you change the batteries. Hotsync and you're back in business.
If you are a couch potato, you _need_ this module.
What an amazing idea
The good...the bad...but not too bad
Good: Programmable Macros, you push one button, it pushes as many as you set. Timer, set a time to push some buttons, and it will do it.
Bad: Setup, some of my TV remote buttons wouldn't program correctly, I had to adjust an "IR sample rate" setting to get it to work correctly. I've never seen any Universal remote need one of those settings. Power, this thing doesn't have as much reach as my other remote controls (or so it seems).
Overall: A good buy if you don't mind some setup hassles, and you're using the remote within 10 feet of your TV. Besides it's one more weird gadget to impress your friends with :-)
Great! unless you have RF remotes
The only bad points are: 1) you have to program each key separately 2) It doesn't work for RF remotes (which makes sense). They claim there is another unit you can buy to use with RF remotes to remedy this 3) I don't always keep my visor by the tv! this has been my biggest problem so far... which i guess means it's a pretty useful and well designed product. It even allows you to "flip" the screen, so you can face the IR port to your components and still read!
Works like a charm
"Univeral" remotes have the problem of having tons of buttons and still not covering EVERYTHING I want from the original remote, or being limited in storage capacity. I was looking at the newer touchscreen remotes, because in theory you can have multiple pages, one for each device, with whatever buttons you want on them.
A Visor plus the OmniRemote, does exactly that, is fully customizable, AND is useful for other things (nothing on TV? Play Solitaire), for less money than many of those dedicated units.
Be warned that you DO need the original remotes, and it takes some time to set up. But once you're done, you'll have one small remote on your living/family room table replacing a STACK.
I'm happy. ... Read more
