One For All URC7965 Universal Smart Remote Control + PS3 Adapter £17.18 Play.com

Found 8th Mar 2013
I've been searching for an all-in-one remote and bought a couple of URC7960s last year for friends (for £15 off amazon), and I know they are amazing devices. They can even connect to an Xbox 360. My mate has a PS3 and the 7960 unfortunately isn't compatible.

Found this on my search, which also includes some magical voodoo box that lets you control the PS3 too, and they usual sell for around the £40 mark.

Result!

PS. This is my first post ;-)

My mate has his set-up to control his sony tv, sony surround sound and virgin media box. there is a special feature that allows the remote to control mainly his virgin box, however the volume buttons adjust the surround amp, and the power button switches off the tv.

There is also a macro function, that allows him to access the input selection of his tv, ie. TV-->Menu, UP, UP, OK. This saves him having to find the tv remote just to switch between his PS3, virgin media, wii console or 360. Or to save having to select the tv function and navigate through the functions just to find the selection screen. There is of course a dedicated av button that allows him to scroll through the inputs, but can sometimes mean he has to wade through Wii, Xbox, PC, Analogue TV, Digital TV, Scart1 and Scart 2 AND THEN FINALLY virgin box - just to change from PS3 to tv. Saves loads of time and frustration!:-)

Just what I was after.. and for 17-quid including the PS3 widget its perfect... thanks for posting!

Got this from amazon around Xmas, great remote for the price. The PS3 adapter I dont think came with a usb cable so had to use the bluetooth feature to use wirelessly. This is of course good though as less wires but does drain the batteries quick!

Shame though I cant get it to work with youview remote

Good price.. Anyone know if this will switch between the inputs on an Onkyp amp?

They have a learning feature, so if you have the original remote with a button on it that lets you switch inputs, then I can say i'mm 99% sure it'll work. as long as onkyo don't use special wizardry with their remotes. remember, this one has voodoo magic on its side...;-)

just done a search on the oneforall website. the 7960 model recommends codes you can try for an onkyo amp. it doesn't list the 7965 model, but i assume it's the same only it adds PS3 support. So i'm sure it's a safe bet.

Remember, it can control your Xbox 360 too. Think I need to update the tags...

If you have a console and a tv set-top box, then this is a no brainer... if you have more than that, well... 6+3 (=9) [EDIT] This only does 6 devices max, i believe :-(

Great deal, great product! Was put off universal remotes many years ago but my ps3 remote broke the day before i saw the deal so decided to give it a go. It works very well on my lg led tv, ps3, sky+hd box and philips micro hifi. A bit fiddly to set up to my requirements but works perfectly after taking time to set it up properly. Heat added :-)

Thanks and sorry for the late reply, mate. Budget unfortunately dictates that I leave this for now..

Doh...

I just bought a generic PS3 remote for around a tenner, but it doesn't work properly so I'll be sending it back.

Just tried to buy one of these but the price has gone up to £27.57

...so I guess this deal has now expired.

UPDATE...

Just ordered from My Memory for £20.97 inc. - mymemory.co.uk/Son…tor , (Ithink I bought the last one in stock.)

Not as cheap as the original offer, but still a bargain IMO.

Thanks OP.

It arrived this morning. Easy to set up. Makes operating multiple devices so much easier. Glad I bought it.
