I love this remote.
We bought this remote when we upgraded televisions. This remote does it all!
When we first bought this, everyone thought we were crazy for spending $150.00 on the remote. In my opnion it was well worth it.
The programming for the remote is very easy. It is all organized though an account with www.Logitech.com. In front of the remote, there is a USB outlet for you to connect the remote to the computer to syncronize everything. Once you are online, you will need to have the Make and Model #'s for each item that you will be using with the remote. You will then set up which items are used while watching television, listening to music and watching dvd's. (I.E Television, Cable Box and Surround Sound)
Once you have set up your settings, you just hit "Watch TV", "Watch a Movie", "Listen to Music" and "Other Activites" *Other Activites include anything additional in your house that you want to use this remote for. (ceiling fan, fireplace)
With the push of one button the unit(s) turn on and automatically set to the setting(s) that you enjoy most.
The durability of this remote is great. We have had it now for about two and a half years and it has fallen off the couch numerous time. Still looks as good as the day we got it.
The signal strength is great.
I love that that this remote eliminates the mess of remotes all over our house!
I highly reccomend this remote and will be buying another one to replace it if need ever be.
