Xsight Techinal Details

Program Activities, upload
channel logos and make your own profile

No manual required
Install the world’s most advanced universal remote control in 3 simple steps. You don’t even need a user manual to set it up within minutes. Just follow the plain and simple installation steps on the full colour screen to let it operate up to 18 different devices. No matter what brand or type, yesterday’s, today’s, and even those of the future.

Step 1: Select device
The full colour screen will guide you through the installation so simply that you will not need a manual at all. And it will do so, in language of your choice. Just click on the device you want to install on your remote and wait for next command.

Step 2: Select brand
Just scroll along the brands listed on the screen, for the one you need. Xsight will now try to install your device, based on most probable compatibility scenario.

Step 3:Test & go!
All you have to do is to confirm, if the remote works now with your device then move on to install the next device. It’s never been so easy to setup an advanced remote control,to replace all other remotes, of any devices by any brands.

Even full advanced setup is child’s play with the online setup program EZRC. Personalise and customise your Xsight. EZRC will also keep your Xsight up to date, with codes for your new devices and updated channel logos your Xsight will always be futureproof.

You can create one-touch activities such as "Watch Movie" or "Listen to Music".  One activity key will execute a string of commands such as turning on the DVD player, A/V receiver and TV at the same time.  Up to 12 different activities can be programmed on your Xsight

Favourites gives you the ability to set up to 72 favourite channels from a country specific channel line up.  The chosen favourites are then shown in the display as full colour graphic buttons complete with channel logos. So no need to remember channel numbers any more.

Create up to six personal profiles, giving instant access to favourite channels.  These profiles can be set up either by member of the household, or by genre such as movies, sport, news etc. 

The Favourites, Profiles and Activities functions can then be combined.  For example, in Movie mode, the sound can be played over the surround system, whilst in the 'Kids' profile the TV's own speakers can be activated.  The Advanced Key Edit gives you full control over the function keys including adding, copying, moving, deleting, re-ordering and re-naming.  You can even set Volume Lock to adjust the volume according to the user.

    I have tried several universal remotes over the years and for the price this one must be the worse of the lot.

    Most of these type of remotes now have a motion sensor (as early one-for-alls did) but with this one when you pick it up the touch screen remains off and requires a touch to to the screen to awake it.
    This however is its most minor weakness.

    The online software you have to use to edit device functions again is frankly pathetic.

    It is not even possible to rename a touch screen button you have already defined, delete one or even change their order.

    They did recently update their website software but again it is still very poor and the basic functions are missing.

    I am also on my second one as the mute key fell off - I found it on living room carpet with small bit of white plastic.

    Yes, I still use the remote and after paying this price one has to.

    But alas I still have on my sofa by BD Player retore, TV remote, DVD player remote, Humax HDR remote and Sky+ remote.

    I just mainly use the URC8603 to control my AV amp.

    The new online software now lets you edit the name of a touch key button and change their order.

    If you need an extra function it seems best to learn it with the remote, upload edit from the remote control online, shuffle order of keys as required and download to remote.

    Other negatives.
    Some buttons on remote are very small.
    Website does not save your login name or password (even some banking websites store some detail of your login).
    Website uses ActiveX and thus only seems to work with Microsoft Internet Explorer 6,7 and 8 in compatibility mode.

    Verified Purchase
    With a TV, DVD player, Blu-ray player, Surround sound system and a HDD recorder I had a lot of home entertainment equipment and a big array of remotes!

    So I've been looking for a universal remote for a while. This one was released a few months ago and looked good but no reviews and with a high price I was a bit reluctant to risk purchasing.

    However suddenly five 5 star reviews appeared on the same day and I thought wow - this really is a great remote. Having received the item I wonder if they are all genuine reviews....

    First impressions on opening the packet was it was a bit cheap and cheerful, well except its actually quite expensive. Products from companies like Sony sell at high prices but have a feel of high tech quality - so you don't feel so bad at your empty pockets! However this remote feels cheap and the buttons don't feel like they'll last for years. Its quality is lower than most of the free remotes you get with your TV/DVD/etc.

    Anyway I was excited to try it out with my TV - and using just the remote it didnt take long to get it set up with my TV and DVD players. All three are fairly new and commonly found.

    However my CD player, my Sony surround sound and my hifi amplifier were not recognised. To be fair the Sony is 6 years old and the amp is an unusual make. So I had to turn to the PC and use the software that comes with the remote. This is were my problems started....

    The software is not software as such - you actually browse to a web site and everything is done from there. First problem was I use Firefox as my web browser. It turns out Firefox or indeed any web browser except Internet Explorer is not supported. So I switched to Internet Explorer - but this didnt work either.

    I've read several quite negative reviews here about this product. I've used One For All kit before and was pretty impressed, so given that these other reviews were quite old, I decided to press on anyway. I'm glad that I did.

    Maybe there have been revisions to the software and hardware that everyone has previously complained about because I don't agree with any of the previous complaints.

    The device is very simple to set up if you want simple functionality - you probably won't need a PC to configure the unit if you have fairly recent devices that you want to control. That said, if you do have some exotic kit, and I do, then you can set it up very easily using the software/website provided. I had no trouble finding codes for all of the equipment I wanted to set up. I cannot review the learning facility of the device because I have not had to teach it any remote control codes by the learning method - everything was either pre-stored in the device or loaded from the website. Very comprehensive library of device codes indeed.

    The software is not awful - I found it pretty straightforward and slick to use. You can always improve these things and the facility to rearrange extended buttons for each device is somewhat non-intuitive, but you soon get the hang of it. I'm a software developer, and I would not say that the software is terrible or difficult to use.

    The unit itself does not have poor build quality - I find it of good quality, good build and pleasing looks. THe keys have a pleasing click and they are not so recessed that you cannot use them.

    In, short, forget the other negative reviews. This is good kit, works very well and is extremely powerful if you really want to push its facilities.
