    How good are these little contraptions.

    With the 5 or 6 remotes I had floating around my new toy has made life that little bit easier.

    Not only does it replace all the remotes I had, but with the press of 1 button i.e "Watch Foxtel" it will change the TV to the required component setting, change the surround sound to the required setting and away we go.

    Press one button when I'm done and it turns all my devices off.

    I love it

    How long did it take you to program it?

    About an hour all up.

    Once I put in the model numbers of the TV etc it set it up pretty well straight away.

    Just needed to tweak some of the Foxtel button configurations i.e Yellow button for favourites. That only took about 15 minutes or so and it was quite easy to do.

    That does sound cool. I have that on my list of things to buy, one day, when everything else is paid off etc
