While your shiny new Philips universal remote has been designed to work and play well with any of the products in the Philips line up, this is only going to work for you if your television and miscellaneous other components happen to all be made by Philips. Unless you happen to be a really unusual person, this is not likely to be the case and you are going to need a universal remote that is truly universal.
The Philips Universal Remote Fits the Bill
In fact you will find that the Philips universal remote does more than simply fit the bill. This remote is very easy to program for just about any brand of electronic component you are likely to include in your living room or home theater room. It will let you access more than the basic features and allow you to finally stuff all of the individual remotes you have collected into the junk drawer and stick to using just one remote to control everything.
