Set up is easy, because this remote doesn’t do much.
So far I have not gotten it to work with my DVR (uses Philips 0081 code), or either of my VCR’s (one Sony, one Phillips), or my Laserdisc player (Pioneer) or my IR X10 controller.
The documentation is VERY limited, so much so that you have to download the online version of the manual to use most of the features. There is no code list provided, and Philips web site does not provide a list for this remote.
The LCD screen is mostly useless, you can use it to access learned codes from some devices, but not all of them. The Device menu on the LCD is not customizable, so if you have a Laserdisc player, you have to remember to press the CD button (IE Not “Wife Friendly”).
The buttons on this remote are small and are mostly hard plastic. The layout is good, but the two-tone effect of the case and lack of a backlight makes some buttons hard to see in low light, especially the power button.
Unless I find a bunch of extra info on this thing that will let me get all my devices working, it is going on ebay soon.
