    I've gotta say, it's the best damn universal remote i've ever used :cool: (well except the 1000 i played with @ ces :o)

    It's super easy to configure with the online software, and it remembers everything for you in your account. But, I have to say, I wish the battery lasted a little longer. Putting it on the cradle every night is kindof annoying :o

    It can't turn on my older stuff (PS2, Xbox), but it saves having to use 3 remotes for everything. All in all worth the $149.

    The Help button on the top right of the remote has always done a good job for me of being able to figure out of if something needs to be turned on/off.

    yea first time you hit help it selects the input
    you press it again then it asks if the tv is on.

    thats basically all i need , but its just damn annoying to do it every time i use it
