3.0 out of 5 stars TV Demote, 15 July 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: One For All URC 7110 Essence TV Universal remote (Accessory)
I use the remote for a CRT TV. It was easily setup using the codes in the supplied booklet and took only 2 mins. The control itself is big and bulky and looks the part, when you have it in your hand however it feels cheap. The buttons have a nice soft plastic feel but the control is thin cheap plastic and would break if it fell of an armchair onto the ground. There are no batteries supplied (a standard with most) and it takes a whopping 4 AAAs so add another £4 to the price.

Overall not bad, but you get what you pay for.

Hi, I bought this 18 months ago and threw away the booklet more or less as soon as I installed it. What I can tell you is that the booklet supplied had thousands of codes. I was tuning it to a mid ninties BUSH tv. If you buy it and you cannot tune it to your equipment you can always return it to Amazon free of charge as it is not fit for purpose. I hope this helps, regards.

Thanks for the information with regards to the number of batteries needed, as not only does that add to the pricing but also the weight of the remote control once all the batteries are in the remote control. So once again than you for the information. I know you wrote the information 3 years ago but it is still relevant to me now.

It seem's a lot of people are unaware that you cannot put batteries in the post. They are xrayed at the post office and reject the parcel if they have, the only batteries that are allowed are lithium and that's if they are installed in the device, such as mobile phones cameras etc.

Er, yes you can.

"Lithium ion/polymer/metal/alloy batteries are allowed when sent with or contained in/connected to an electronic device, but are subject to packaging, volume and quantity restrictions."

Also:

"Alkaline metal, nickel metal hydride (NiMH) and nickel cadmium (NiCd) batteries may only be sent when new and in their original packaging."

Source: Royal Mail website, "Prohibited Goods".

It certainly explains why I've been able to buy countless batteries from Amazon UK over the past fifteen years, and why almost every remote controlled electronic device (TV, PVR, hifi, etc.) I've purchased since the 1980s came with batteries for the remote control.

Still, it beggars belief that people expected batteries with a £9 remote control.

You can post batteries, and it is very cheap that NONE are supplied in the package.
