    Hi,

    Does anyone have this Sony Remote (the thin, good looking *art couture* one)?

    It looks good, and as I'm aesthetically challenged, I was considering it when I invest in my AV Receiver and speakers at the end of the month.

    Cheers,
    Iain

    Hello

    I have one of these remotes, great to have just one remote !

    Good looking, easy to set up - switch to learn, press the button on the Sony you want to "record" and then press the button on the "donor" remote and Bob is your .... I presume this is how all learning remotes work but it couldn't be much simpler.

    so how does the learning thing work exactly? which button do you need to press to get it to learn? (they didn't have these sorts of fancy things when I were lad!)

    it certainly does look a good remote - I really like these slimline sony ones. its a bit pricey, but if I've already spent over 2k over the years, its not much extra....

    ah - so you do have to do each button individually then?

    I'm a bit of a Sony freak, so it comes out of the box pretty much set up for Sony equipment. There maybe some functions you have to program but once you have done it once or twice it is really simple. This was the first universal remote I've bought and I had everything set up with 45 mins.

    I've just bought the av3000 from the states, but I have a question about this model.

    It states on Sony's website that this has a 20min backup memory. Does this refer to when the battery's die or is this related to something else?

    Cheers...

    I've just been in contact with Sony who inform me that when the batteries are about to run out on the AV3000 the LCD will go off about 10 seconds after a key is pressed, until another one is pressed when it will come on again. There will also be a BATT indicator that flashes on the screen. When you take the old battery out you have approx 20 minutes to insert the new ones otherwise you will lose any keys and macros you have learnt into it.

    Hope this helps

    Whoops sorry, I was referring to the SONRMVZ950T with regards to the 20 min backup.

    Does this remote give any indication of low battery or does it just die?

    The RMVZ950T will just become less and less responsive so I think it's a case of when you have to stand 6 inches away from your kit to operate it - change the battery !
