Cold from me, absolutely bloody useless for anyone without the most rudimentary of av equipment in their lounge.

Unlike decent Logitech ones that have programmable buttons with a display which can truly replace a remote control.

This would be useless for anyone wanting to use the array of options on an AV Receiver, and even some functions such as angle, audio mode etc on a blu ray player.

Yes you could assign a certain key to such functions but would need a memory of a bloody elephant to remember something like 'red button will change the sound mode on my amp' 'blue will activate pure direct mode' etc....at least with Logitech remotes you have a useful display you can scroll through.

Save your money for one of the Logitech Harmony remotes with a windowed display, or at least look at the array of buttons you will be missing out on from your original remotes before going for a crappy One4All...in my own experience (and certainly not biased What Hi Fi) they have never been good....and that comes from me owning a One4All Kameleons and then the crappy freebie with subscription to What HiFi (with a whopping £79 price tag) One4All Xsight.

Own the ageing Logitech Harmony 785 and 555, had them both for years, and both of them are still as relevant with Logitech Harmony software database today as they were 7-8 years ago.

i agree it's not as good as a logitech harmony remote. For the price, it is ok for some people wanting to just control a couple of items such as TV and PVR etc. I bought it to control sources from remote location that are extended by HDanywhere kit and it works fine. As for rudimentary AV kit, mine is far from rudimentary (e.g. Anthem MRX 710 receiver) and works fine.

only bought one as my Sony dvd remote broke and my Samsung tv one was really sluggish and its proved to be a great buy,.any buttons it doesn't know from the code book you can just use the learning function and copy any button from your original remote to this unit which i found very useful.

all in all great value at that price so hot from me.

ignore the motion control though which is just a gimmick but you can turn it off thankfully.

Looking at the Anthem remote it looks very basic, I am guessing any sound alteration settings on the Anthem is hidden amongst menus.

After paying that much on a receiver, I would get Anthem to address the cooling fan option, looks like the cheapest PC cooler they could possibly find was put it in!
