Yes the product is dinky hiding the mass of buttons u never use on a remote. However it just doesn't have enough buttons to allow a complete replacement for even a TV let alone DVD & STB. The overloading of functions onto the compass rose for teletext+play+arrow functions is OK until your STB needs all three and u can only have 2 (normal and shifted) functions associated with a button.

However the clincher is the poor build quality. If u keep it closed it is OK. But open, it rattles like a cheap plastic toy.

To cap it all after only 2 months moderate use the supplied battery was so low the unit starts failing. Hopefully the new one will last nearer the stated 12 months lifetime!

The design in principle is a good idea, but it needs much better build quality and an extra 4 separate coloured teletext buttons at least.

This remote is packed in one of those annoying hard to open and easy to ruin blister packs. Once open you discover a neat and relatively clear remote control. It does have some quirks but overall is a great little thing.

Slide:
Although it may look like a mobile phone, the slide function on this remote is a bit wobbly. This is entirely down to how the hinge is attached. It's sprung, and quite nice to move, but it does jiggle a bit when closed. Still it's a remote right? It certainly doesn't look like it'd break despite this, so it's not a big issue.

Batteries:
Yup - coin cells. Two included with it and fitted with a plastic pull tab to activate. I only mention the batteries as I had a power problem until I removed them and put them back in the remote. The power was fading out of the LED and this gave me the clue that things weren't right. Just rejigged them and its been fine since.

Setup:
Pretty easy but you do need to read the manual. The learning function isn't at all clear due to a *pre-training* step. The pre-training guides you to where the best position is for the remotes. Once done, STOP pressing the original remote. Once you've selected a feature in the SRU7140 tap the button on the original remote, don't hold it, otherwise you blow out the internal memory and it doesn't learn properly.

I learnt that gem through pain.

Button Layout:
Buttons are laid out quite logically although the cursor keys only cycle between two function sets. What do I mean? Well, some devices need THREE function sets. Sky+ for example needs a Play/FF/RW/Stop set, a cursor up/down/etc set and a coloured button set.

It's a lot smaller than i thought, who says it's a remote, at a glance looks more like a sliding mobile phone about the same size plus the design of the buttons on the lower part, minus the LCD display which are on some remotes. When open still short, remote controls usually about eight inch long and onwards,as for replacement remote controls - eg. for use of dvd players don't have specific functions (multi-angle, subtitles, repeat and audio) only the original remote goes with the hardware, SRU 7140 has this function. It operates 2x (although says one on product info page) CR2032 button batteries rather than standard AAA or AA, when select device function it's lights up blue also the buttons are soft touch. Five star rated for design and the ease of use.

Bought this after reading the positive reviews and becoming tired of switching between remotes to handle devices. I know, even i can't believe i just said i became tired of lifting up a different remote from the remote stand! hard life ain't it?

Anyway, The remote itself is a neat and tidy replacement for over sized tired looking remote controlos for a suprisingly large amount of home devices.

In little under 10 minutes i had it programmed to be using my Sky+ box, DVD player and television. It also comes with codes for my Toshiba suround system, but offers very basic controls.

I found that by manually enetering codes rather than the auto scan function was allot quicker in terms of set up, on that note, for any one using a Sky+ box, please enter code 0555 under STB setting. my box is made by Thomson and i wasted a bit of time trying to enter the codes supplied untill that one came to my attention, in the list of codes supplied with the device.

OK, I'm none too bothered about goig on about the specs of the remote, it's ergonomically pleasing and works like a charm, even on the most random and oldest brands.

the only 2 and very harsh reasons i did not give it 5 stars is that on some devices the remote is a little out of sync, but nothing that the Learn function cannot sort out and secondly that it is a little rigid in terms of build quality, it just feels a bit cheap.

PLEASE DO NOT LET THAT PUT YOU OFF! this is a cracking bit of kit that will be much appreciated and comes highly reccomended as a one for all.

At under £10 this is quite a nice product, but before you buy one try to make sure it's compatible with your equipment.

It works with my TV and DVD (Philips & Sony), but not with my Arcam amp. What's more surprising is that it won't operate my Humax 9200T PVR, despite the fact that the list of codes provided by Philips includes Humax PVRs.
