I bought this remote after buying the unit for which it would come with if it was purchased new in its original box. I purchased the unit on ebay without the remote and later found this was the match to the unit. It is the exact match although minimal as it is, it works just fine. I had other remotes that operate the unit however the only difference would be the the ability to select the (NET) feature which did not exist on my other remotes. I really do not even use that feature much because the home screen sucks on my unit for pandora and other apps. Other than that, the remote operates my pioneer unit perfectly.
