Thanks mate for that.:thumbsup:
#3
Nice price, handy to have for when the other remotes are kiddified!
#4
Thought it might be an OK buy, but was stumped by the lack of info - From other sites, it appears to be this model: URC 7562

That was all well and good, but it is not on the One for all Web site for manuals or codes! (and naturally for updated codes!)

This site might be some help though:
http://www.symdesign.com/codes.for.one.for.all.6.urc-7562.html
and I found the manual here:
http://tv.manualsonline.com/manuals/mfg/one_for_all/urc7562.html
#5
I have this model and use it for the sleep timer function that is missing from the TV in my bedroom.
#6
It's a good price, but did not work for my Sony DVD Recorder, using any of the codes (including downloads) in any of my recorder's command modes. Not voted either way.
#7
This remote is good for hacking a Sony BD360 Bluray player to DVD region free.
#8
Will this work on sky+ hd
#9
Bought this today to multi region my Sony rdr-hxd770 (which took 2 minutes), many thanks.
#10
Thank you OP :)

Will it work on a WD HD v2 media player?

It sounds like there is a learning (Magic) function on this. So as long as your original remote works....... Looks a hot deal!
#13
I had one of these and a 15 year old TV with some obscure, but useful, buttons on the remote for the teletext. The old remote control had died a long time beforehand. These extra buttons weren't supported when you first entered the code. However, when I phoned the customer support line, they were able to download them by phone. I had to hold the remote next to the phone and it acted as an acoustic modem.

The problem for me was that I got a Topfield TF5800 PVR which has ~ 50 buttons on the remote, and there weren't enough on this remote for all the functions that I wanted.
#14
Can this be activated if the old remote has had it...... quite a few buttons on my remote have stopped working. Philips TV.??

I couldn't disagree more.

I have one of these controlling my CD player & amp (one one function); Media Centre PC; TV; Blu-Ray player; cable box; iPod dock. It's upgradeable via OneForAll's website or telephone support and I've always found the tech support to be excellent when you get a new device that may not have a code out of the box.

It's fully user-configurable and quite robust. At this price, it's a steal. Heat added.

Good remote, i have the exact same model.

Unless you own a harmony remote, you couldn't possibly understand the difference.... it is like comparing steak to offal, and yeah some people prefer eating intestines...

anyone know if this will work with xbmc?

Does anybody know what is the best 3rd party remote for BT Vision?

Don't start me on about Logitech remotes.

If they worked they would be brilliant, unfortunately, there are BIG problems.

Not interested in ANY discussion on them, as more Fanboys will only pop up, en masse but as you brought this, off-topic into the discussion, I had to set the facts straight.

THIS post by someone else here: http://www.avforums.com/forums/remote-controls/672016-one-all-six-way-remote-control-any-good.html#post6052175
echoes 100% my experience, where the guy points out how the defective codes in the database cause the problems..... just as I found after wasting MANY MANY hours trying to get some devices working. If you device has the wrong codes in the database, it is hell, if it is right, fine.

If I had only read that post before I got one, I would be a lot happier, so even though it long pre-dates my experience, it is spot on.
He also puts it far more politely than I ever could :-(

No remote is better, I mean NOT HAVING a remote is a better option, if having a Logitech remote was the only option instead of eating Intestines, with their contents, then bring on the guts.

I had one of these and then bought a Logitech Harmony 525.

This one didn't have enough buttons for my Topfield PVR. However, the buttons that are there work fine.

The Logitech lets you define lists with lots of buttons. However, this then ends up being a pain to scroll through pages of them 4 at a time and I don't like the feel of the buttons. Perhaps I could configure these on my PC, but I've got plenty of other things I'd rather do instead.

In theory the Logitech is better for programming a sequence of events - to switch the DVD player on, change to the AV channel etc. This might be fine if you only use the Logitech remote. If your wife also uses another remote, or turns things on or off on the buttons on the front of theTV or DVD player. The Logitech remote gets confused and its a pain to get it all back in sync.

Nowadays I don't use either, as I replaced the TV with one that has a working remote.

Yes :-)

I bought this remote a few weeks ago (somebody posted it here at the end of the year)

I already had a XBOX DVD remote and have switched to this. There is a code for the xbox. I did have to do a little tinkering though.

Personally I would say this remote is excellent value with solid build (I have young kiddies you see). I also have a Logitech Harmony which is better but 5 times the price. I use this remote in the second room and it works a treat. I would say this is better "value" than a Logitech Harmony - all depends on your requirements of course.

Cheers.

ditto (well mostly)

This remote is under £10 so might suit some who don't want to spend £40 or more on a remote.

I bought a remote ages ages ago from Lidl for a fiver, a URC L 639 and it has a learning facility although I haven't used that mode.

I use it with an old Sky receiver.
#27
I sent them an email and they emailed me a wav file with all the devices I needed on it, then when I got a new TV they sent me an email with the codes I already had plus the new TV. They will also supply all the info you need to remap any of the keys or use with macro keys etc. Email response time is same or next day.

An unbeleivable level of support for something that costs a tenner .... well done one4all
#28
This remote is very well made and can take some punishment. We used one for a couple of years and lost count of the number of times it was dropped on our wooden floor. Every time the batteries were sent flying from the force of impact and we expected the unit to be dead but it just kept going.

I would absolutely agree with you... unbelieveable level of support..
Email them the Brand and Model number of the equipment you are trying to control and they they send you a email with a Wav file with the buttons programmed for you, and a text file telling you which button on their Remote Control corresponds to your Original Control. I use this on my Tv and Technomate Satellite Receiver. the Technomate was not in the already preprogrammed codes list in the manual, they sent me a Wave file for the Technomate. Brilliant product.

fwiw, Currys offering the URC-7556 Stealth 5 in 1 remote for £14.99 special offer. I picked one up this morning. I already have an older URC-7555.

Granted it is not as good as a bargain as the Argos £9.89 offer, but the URC-7556 remote is also learnable and has additional labelled buttons.

Anyone know if this will work with a Humax 9200 PVR, I'm after a remote to use in the bedroom with my TV transmitter/receiver that's sending my Humax signals from the lounge?

Unless I'm mistaken, the learning feature would allow the remote to learn the individual buttons if a device code for the Humax doesn't exist, which I can't see from the link that nihcaj posted (http://www.symdesign.com/codes.for.one.for.all.6.urc-7562.html).

What learning feature?
The only way to truly "learn" this model is using the cable facility! The learning is very linited in how it works to replace one of a few key functions. (See manual)
Hopefully there will be a code for that model to get from their support service by now, but no guarantee of it. (only one Humax code is listed on that site :-(

I have a Humax 9200 too... and very little works with it, (even one other learning remote I have), it is very picky to work with anythign else, after all teh original remote isn't very sensitive even! Which is why I bought a purpose made copy remote for use through my video sender upstairs when the Logitech crap failed to work fully with it too!

nihcaj posted a link to the manual (http://www.rockabilly.net/files/manuals/URC-7562.pdf) which details the learning feature on page 13 - as it uses the original remote to beam the correct IR signal to this remote I would have thought that you could emulate most remotes (assuming that the Humax doesn't use an IR range outside the one that this remote supports).

I think because it is so limited you would be struggling to learn the whole remote though, even with the "shifted" learning

True, although it looks like you can reprogram existing keys, eg: number, play, pause, etc which would leave the custom keys for things like menu, skip/repeat, bookmarks, etc.

Argos have a reasonable return policy so I might give it a punt.

Bought one today and was able to get it to learn all the main Humax commands so I think I'll be keeping it - unfortunately it wouldn't learn the commands from the TV in my bedroom so I'll still need to use that remote.
#38
I've always avoided this type of product as I didn't think they'd be any good but, at less than £10, I thought I'd give it a go. Brilliant! Astonishing! What a clever item for such a bargain price. As others have already said, the support you get is impressive. Granted, you have to enjoy fiddling with electronic gadgets if you want to get the best out of it but, to be fair, its not that complicated. Controls all my bits and pieces!
