Should be able to learn the codes off the old remote if not pre-programmed.
(upto 100 commands)

Will it work with a ps3?

Will it work with a ps3?

Not sure but there is a live help on the link page, although it is offline at the mo.
#6
standard ps3 remote uses bluetooth. to use this you'll need an infrared receiver you can plug into the usb port on the ps3
#7
its got a macro button so you should be able tp program a series of commands to one touch ie "turn on dvd, tv ,surround sound" in one go
#8
nice remote. dont need it but i want it lol
#9
Looks pretty cool, can't go wrong for the price really even if it sucks.. aldi normally take stuff back without issues
#10
thanks kramic. I think I will get one. Add to my collection of remotes :)
#11
do you know if this works with Sky+ (features of Sky+) ??
#12
I have the older version of this with the square corners. Everything else looks the same. For a tenner it's not bad at all. Looks nice (especially in the dark when the backlight is on ) , feels solid and the touchscreen has always worked flawlessly.

doesn't work on projectors..

The last universal remote I had from Aldi claimed to be able to do that - it didn't work.

Read the following:

http://www.skyuser.co.uk/forum/sky/18179-dont-buy-tevion-universal-remote-control-aldi.html

"There is a pretty sneaky looking remote control in Aldi at the moment. it has a light up touch screen.

DO NOT BUY IT IT WILL NOT OPERATE SKY PLUS OR THE HD BOX. It is supposed to have learning capability, but its hopeless as it wont operate record. Spent ages trying to program it, spoke to the helpline too to no avail . The coloured buttons also have dual usage which really complicates matters.

You have been warned."
#17
It controls my Optoma HD80 no problem (well the older version anyway, just taught it from the original Optoma remote

Great for £10-I have it controlling my lights, electric PJ screen, AMP too

This post is a year old, are you sure this is the same remote?
I must say I'm a bit annoyed about the PC functions being hard-coded in any case. Also the use of keys to represent characters (1=space, 2=abc, PIP=*, SWAP=# etc.) when there's no clue on the button as to the dual function. I know it's £9.99 but it's money down the drain if you end up buying another universal remote.

Will it control an Xbox 360?
#20
I could be wrong but at this price this remote, with it's high spec is bound to be very very low quality.

Bearing in mind that your remote is something you use A LOT, it might be worth saving your cash rather than buying something that will ultimately disappoint. A quick search on Google shows that Tevion universal remotes that have been peddled by Aldi before have a poor track record.
#21
Hmmmm, Im tempted. Do you have one OP?

Looks as if it will control an Xbox 360 as it will control an MCE remote and you can use one of those with a 360 no probs. :-D
#22
I don't think touch-screen will be very handy to use

normally people don't look at keys before pressing. So it must be very frustrating to use on daily basis
#23
Looks extremely cheap

Looks extremely cheap


Because it is?

I need a new Sky remote and was after a universal to control my 360 as well. For a tenner I'll give this a go if I can get one......

recently bought a Logitech Harmony 555 for £30 on Amazon and have been an addict ever since - the automatic setup and "activity programming" are just superb. Would never go back to a remote that only controls individual devices. (Even the wife can now work the telly and everything attached to it).
Cheap though!
#26
im confused...:roll:
how do you program it to connect to all devices-is it simple?
#27
Got the previous version of this (more square design as mentioned earlier) price reduced to £3.99 a couple of months ago.

It actually works very well, any products without a preset code can be learned and this does seem to work (programmed a TV, Freeview box, surround sound amp). Backlighting is really handy for movie watching in the dark too.

Good buy for less than a tenner - equivalent under a different brand name is £25 in Asda.
#28
Think i'll stick with my harmony ONE. Cold. Cheap. Nasty.
#29
I was looking for something to do for Sunday afternoon. Programming this to turn on the telly, select the PS3 as input, turn on the surround-sound, select PS3 input to that, all from one button, sounds like a worthy challenge. £10 for a whole afternoon's entertainment. cheaper than thepub...:thumbsup:

I had exactly the opposite experience - if one device didn't get the command the remote would 'lose' the status of that unit - a nightmare (turning things on and off out of sequence), particularly with a Panasonic TV which has an odd AV selection method. I'd buy this cheap device over a Harmony any day and would only ever use a remote that operated one device at a time. Its "horses for courses".

You obviously don't have the brains to set them up properly :whistling:
Enjoy your aldi one.

Just got it, playing with it now. It does look good, backlight makes it look cool. Not good for those with BIG fingers. Progammed my Technosonic tele with first code but currently looking for codes for my other devices not listed. For a tenner, its good and Im happy. More so because it has a AV button. My other remotes did not have one. Ive got my dvd-r, cable receiver and stereo left to do. Gonna give the PC a go as well sice I have a tv capture card with remote control.

I would recommend this.
#34
Picked one up this morning and it's very good for the money. I had to teach it manually to control my Humax PVR but it wasn't that much trouble.:thumbsup:
#35
Can anyone confirm this working / failed with Sky plus record function?

P.S. I am aware the post linking to the excellent skyuser forum but that report is a year old, and might not relate to this version of the remote.

I bought one this morning and have been unable to get it work the Sky HD box ( Thomson ), I've tried all the codes and each of the methods for set-up / learning. No useful information on the internet so it will be going back.

Yes there big but not too much trouble to handle. Probably a pain if you got small hands when you try to hold it with one hand in order to press the buttons.

I picked one up but have not yet got it to work with my amstrad sky+ box. I'd be interested to hear of anyone that has success.
#40
I've just phooned Customer Support on 0161 975 0458 and they didn't seem too convincing, eventually they agreed it didn't work with Sky HD. I asked did it work with any Sky HD boxes and he said yes the Virgin one :(
