Larry M, thanks for the link pointer. But my question is how does one program the device, and does it actually come with a book that lists the code to enter for all of those different sets? I own a device that reads the code transmitted by a remote and uses that to figure which code listing to use, but if I had the original remote I would not have the problem. Our other "universl" remote should be marked "fairly universal", since it does not include a number of types, and the listing for mine does not work. That is the other problem with universal remotes is that not everything in the book works.
I had a somewhat similar problem with a hi-8 player years back. I bought the unit used and it came with no remote. I wasn't too concerned about that. It wasn't until later that I discovered that there were certain operations that only the remote would do. This particular remote cost more than I spent on the player itself. I wish they wouldn't do things like that...lol
"All" is a large and potentially infinite number. It's worked on everything we've tried so far. These remotes have been around for a while and there are probably new devices around which aren't covered.
A slew of announcements about new materials and design concepts for transportation have come out of several trade shows focusing on plastics, aircraft interiors, heavy trucks, and automotive engineering. A few more announcements have come independent of any trade shows, maybe just because it's spring.
Samsung's Galaxy line of smartphones used to fare quite well in the repairability department, but last year's flagship S5 model took a tumble, scoring a meh-inducing 5/10. Will the newly redesigned S6 lead us back into star-studded territory, or will we sink further into the depths of a repairability black hole?
