I finally found one remote that does it all. I've been looking forever to find a remote that controls my cable box, tv, dvd, surround sound, dvr, stereo, etc. It was very easy to program and has every feature you are looking for. My biggest problem was finding a remote that controlled the DVR on my cable box, and this is the one!

-Will Mansi quote

Just bought our second RF-20. Works great for both IR and RF (with the RF receiver unit) functions, and does both at the same time. We've found both the IR and RF signals to be very strong. The IR signal is much stronger than the signals in the remotes that came with our TVs and cable boxes. We use the new one primarily to control our entertainment center from around the house. (It's also programmed to control two TVs.) Our AV equipment is in the basement. We have wired speakers around the house and outside. Our AV equipment includes a receiver and a Roku Soundbridge (very cool) for listening to Internet radio. We can sit on the back patio and use the RF-20 to turn on the receiver and Soundbridge, change stations (using the Favorites buttons), control the volume and mute. And we live in a 50-year-old brick and cinderblock house that would make a great bomb shelter. The only knock is that the unit is a bit bulky with a squarish shape that doesn't feel great in your hand. It's a minor issue. But they did a great job thinking through all possible uses so it's incredibly flexible. I've yet to find any functionality that cannot be programmed...and the price is great.
