Sure works a lot better than my "regular" remote from DTV. No slow down whatsoever. Before I did set it up, I tried using my DTV remote, and it was still "slow" IMO. Waiting 3-5 seconds for the guide or list to pull up was annoying. Have it paired with my HR34, Yamaha receiver, 360, and PS3. Pretty dang sweet...back to my BBQ and beers just thought I'd share that if anyone was curious to how they worked being new to the site as I am... Cheers!
