Philips Perfect replacement Universal remote control SRP5107 7 in 1
I love this programmable remote.
The learn function is very easy/quick compared to other remotes I have used. It even was able to learn the remote codes for our fan.
I also like the key groupings. Two clusters. Navigation and DVR/DVD play back.
I haven't run out of memory yet, but I hope future upgrades increase the max program memory from the current 60 to at least 100.

Breaks too easily
This remote failed after being dropped from a table. Worst durability of any remote I've ever owned. Even before dropping, the code memory failed. It could not be reset, and it would not retain even the codes from the built in libraries. Failure occurred within three weeks of purchase.

Great Remote for a low price.
Easy to use. Programming of non-Philips equipment is easy and fast. Learning feature is easy to use.

THE BEST REMOTE (and my best friend)
Best remote! EZ setup, 7 devices, even my laptop PC! Everything works with this one, forget the $100 + Logitech. I was bummed thinking i was doomed to having 5 - 10 remotes to look for, that i couldn't afford one to do it all. I love this product, someone actually stole it once, and I ran out at midnight to get another one. Worth every penny! Easy to set up, i use mine on:
2 TV's, Envision and Phillips FULL FUNCTION w/ some 'learning' on the Envision tv
2 Stereos, Sony and JVC and their components! CD, tuner, some 'learning' . Impressive!!! and these are older systems. PS: JVC rocks way more than Sony.
Magnavox DVD Full Function
Magnavox digital TV converter box FULL function
HP Pavillion DV 9500 laptop, some learning, WORKS GREAT. and i just lost the oem remote for the PC.
keep yer hands off my remote!

Best learning remote for it's price.
Programing method is as easy as it gets. You get 1 code for each brand type, and you push and hold power till your device responds. You can also program any device on any button. If you have 3 DVD players, You can program one on the DVD button, one on the HD button, and one on the VCR button. So it is versital which is a nice feature. Best part of this remote. It can LEARN new codes. Select which button you want to program and your done. (step by step instructions included in manual). Basically, you can LEARN/Assign ANY IR code to ANY button on the Philips remote.This is a MUST HAVE remote for people have several remotes and want to consolidate. Or if youare unable to find a Universal Remote that will work with their devices. You must have original remote for the device in order for Philips remote to learn. Manual says you can only program up to 40 custom buttons. Numeric keypad is a bit scrunched together. The 'Back Light' only applies to top TV thru AUX selection buttons, OK/Select middle button, and Volume and Channel buttons.

Great for some devices, torture for others
This remote does a fantastic job working with my DVD and VCR. Easy to program and all the function keys worked perfectly the first time through. When it came to programming my Satellite (DirecTV) with built-in DVR, I had an absolutely horrific time! First of all (I'm not sure why) there was no list of manufacturer device numbers in my owners manual. I had to find the list on-line. I got my Satellite to turn on and off pretty easily once I got the device number that I needed. The problem came with getting any of the keys to work properly with the remote. I had to program almost every key individually!! Some of them still don't work. I can't get my Menu, Guide, Down Toggle button (really strange since up/right/left work fine), volume, 2, 6, 7, and 0 keys to work at all. Some of the keys that I finally got to program, randomly have to be reprogrammed every now and then. It is really, really odd!! If my kids hadn't destroyed the box, I would have returned the remote and tried something else :-(
