Don't like it.
Ugly, but, like others, doesn't much matter to me as I use a Harmony
The missing buttons are a PITA for anyone used to the features/functions of the RC6x with a DVR.
This seems best used with a HMC client where there isn't a need to change the TV inputs.
I do use the DTV remote. Fewer buttons would be okay. But like others, the design is ugly. All black would be better.
Ugly, and why on earth would you not make the large button above the up arrow be the guide button? how often do you press the menu button vs the guide button?
How do I get one?
Should have been list. I doubt I go into Guide once a day.
Harmony for me... my setup has 6 devices and my Harmony controls everything.
it's like the Tivo peanut remote's ugly sister.
My mom had used this one for years . . . .
With the four color buttons now gone on the new remote, I can un-retire it and use it for my bedroom as my eyes also see less in the dark.
Nobody uses crestron/control4/savant?
Dig through the trash
I doubt I go to the guide once per week.
It's the new RC71 remote. It isn't available for sale yet. It will be coming with the new HR44 that is seen in the first looks.
My son might like that for his HD receiver ( not DVR ).
Why do they show it and it is not an option to buy it at DTV or Solid Signal ?
You're not familiar with CES?
I know it is a show for new products , but I thought this remote came as an option with the HR34 also.
Can somebody expand on this? I use several of the color buttons quite often (yellow while in the guide, for instance). If the only way to do some of these direct-access functions is by a series of steps via the menus, that is NOT progress.
Most (if not all) of the color button functions have been changed to a different button, such as DASH now replacing YELLOW in most cases.
Within Quicktune, GREEN replaced by ENTER to add a channel; Within Live TV, BLUE replaced by ENTER for Mini-Guide; Within Guide, RED replaced by REW (<<) for -12 hours, GREEN replaced by FFWD (>>) for +12 hours, YELLOW replaced by DASH for options; Within Playlist, YELLOW replaced by DASH for options, BLUE replaced by ENTER for Keep; Within Series Manager, GREEN replaced by "1" to move a series to the top.
I actually quite like the old remote but perhaps that is simply because it is all we have. The new remote simply has no punch if that makes any sense but I guess who cares if it simply streamlines the functions of the old one. I've never bought a harmony remote but perhaps it's time for me to start looking.
Can it control a TV and AV receiver? I don't see a slide switch.
