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.


EZRC
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.

Activities
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
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.

Profiles
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. 

Advanced
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.

Bought this remote to replace my old Logitech Harmony 555 - but sadly the remote handling of activities is very close to useless.

For those of you not expirienced with activities on remote controls, these are configured activities such as "Watch TV" that automatically turns on your TV, switches it to the correct input setting, then turns on your sat receiver. This means, that with one push of a button you can have all the right signals sent. When the activity is active, the remote will combine signals of the different units so that the volume buttons controls the tv, change channals the sat box and so on. This is extremely usefull.

So why am I stating that it is useless in the One For All URC8602 Xsight Colour remote? There are two main reasons:

1) The primary reason, is that the remote has no memory of the state of your different appliances. This is OK for appliances with different signals to turn the appliance on and off, but today most appliances has one signal only for power toggle (on/off). In practice this means: If you are using the activity "Watch TV" and want to watch a DVD and you press activity "Watch DVD" the remote will turn off your TV if it has only a power toggle option. This because the remote does not remember that the TV is on, and as the "Watch DVD" activity would involve turning on the TV it sends the power toggle command, in this case turning off the TV.

The Logitech remote e.g. remembers the states of your appliances, and will thus not send the power toggle command if it knows the TV is already on.

For our usage, where we have activities to use our Boxee, the DVD, the Xbox and the sat box this makes the remote totally useless switching between these.

Verified Purchase
Now they have been discontinued, the Xsight Touch (18 devices, Charging system, touch screen, tilt operated back light, and RF capability with its own IR extender accessory) and Xsight Colour (18 devices, 3 AAA batteries, hard buttons for LCD, button actuated back light, no RF) or their respective equivalents: ARRX18/Nevo3 and ARRX15/Nevo2, can be found at prices as low as £22 and £15, which could now seem to makes them exceptional colour screen bargains. They are functionally similar to Logitech's well known 900 and One, which have also been discontinued.

The buttons are not especially prominent, and the Colour clones are rather heavy. Touch versions have a touch screen and a li-ion battery and charger. With Colour etc. battery life of the three AAs is reasonable because the LCD needs a button press to light up the screen but connection to PC uses the batteries more quickly and the voltage of rechargeables is inadequate. The Colour clones' hard buttons for LCD functions are easier to use, while the hard buttons of all models work when pressed with the back light off and it's duration can be adjusted.

The activity/device-based configurations are indeed similar to Harmony's but the Xsights lose out by not 'remembering' the current power state of each device. It is more significant that with both brands, except with Harmony 650/700 which have three hard activity buttons, you cannot go directly from one activity/device to another. Instead a button must be pressed to bring up a menu on the screen and another button, or two if needed to change screens, to select an activity or device.

I bought this direct from the manufacturers (£20 cheaper than on here at the time of writing!). On the whole I like it (though not as much as my fifteen-year-old un-named brand which died recently) and as I don't want to use 'Activities' it does most of what I want to do. As I have a Mac I have no access to the PC setup or the website, and anyone in this position should be aware of the limitations:

You can set up preset devices by working through a list of about 12 codes for each type. It didn't have the codes for my OPPO Blu-Ray or my Humax Freeview HD PVR. Without a PC you can't access any other codes from their database and you can't enter codes directly.

You can learn whole devices or additional functions for an already entered device from its existing remote - this works well on the whole but I had difficulty with some codes, finding that though the remote claimed to have saved the code it didn't work: in each case I was eventually able to get it to work, in one case after about ten tries.

Each device has on-screen buttons in addition to the physical ones. You can add buttons or modify and rename existing ones. Without a PC you cannot delete buttons, or rename buttons other than by learning a code over them and then renaming them.

Without a PC you cannot use Activites or Favourites (this didn't bother me).

It's not stated anywhere what sort of memory it uses - I would hope that it was proper flash memory that will hold the programming even if the batteries are dead or out for some time, but they don't say so. I should be rather annoyed if it did lose the memories as it was a long process to get it as I wanted it.
