Getting married is great and what makes it even better is the excuse it gives you to go out buy electronics to fill your home with. With all the electronics that are out there, you end with so many remotes that if you want to watch a dvd you need the tv remote, the dvd remote, the sound system remote, and manuals to boot. I got so frustrated that I decided to pay up and get this remote. Let me tell you what a lucky find this was. It showed up and I plugged into my iMac. The software provided walks you through inputting the different electronics that you have. Once you're done, the software downloads all the right software to the remote for you. Now all I have to do to watch tv is press the "Watch TV" button. If I want to watch a dvd, I press watch a dvd. If things don't go as expected, you press help and it has a logical question set to walk you through fixing the issue which is usually pretty minor like you didn't aim the remote correctly when choosing what entertainment option you wanted. It's so easy even my wife the enemy of electronics says it's easy.
Anyways, this remote is a nicely priced alternative to the sea of universal remotes that are out there right now. The current going price for the remote is $140 but it makes it for it with convenience and ease of use.
