ALTHOUGH THE REMOTES SEEM TO BE A GENUINE SONY PRODUCT, AND MOST OF THE FUNCTIONS WORK.. BE WARNED!! NOT ALL DO!! THE CODE NUMBERS THAT'LL WORK WITH THE RMT-D248P, ONLY GO UP TO 75.. I HAVE AN LG TV WHICH THE CODE IS 76, AND DOES NOT WORK ON THIS REMOTE. WHY? BECAUSE THE RMT-D248P IS AN EARLIER - OLDER MODEL.. SO YOU MIGHT FIND AS I DID THAT THE CODES SUPPLIED IN YOUR USER OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS, WON'T BE OF ANY USE ANY MORE. THAT'S IF THE CODE IS 76 OR HIGHER, SO BE WARNED!! THIS SHOULD HAVE BEEN EXPLAINED IN AMAZON'S INFORMATION ABOUT THIS REPLACEMENT. VERY BAD!!
Potential purchasers should note that the replacement supplied does NOT have the important Gemstar Guide Plus facility, activated by a button labelled 'Guide'. The original RMT-D251P DOES have this which enables speedy listing of programmes on all channels and selecting of programmes to record. Without this facility the only way to set a recording is to do it manually - typing in channel number, date, start time and finish time. A very fiddly and long-winded process!
