Excellent Remote

Written By Ajtrek, Kansas on Monday, May 12, 2014
Recommend paying the money for the Bose® Solo/CineMate® System Universal Remote. It's excellent upgrade from the standard remote and can be programed to control just about any device connected to your monitor. I replaced my Panasonic and DirecTV remotes and retained full functionality. The only downside is that there is no way to program the main power on/off button for both monitor and speaker simultaneous operation. Not a deal breaker IMO.

Good for the price

Written By Frank, Wallkill,NY on Friday, December 27, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
Not too convenient when used with various brand names in an Audio/Video system.

Pointing angle of remote to target unit is not critical.
Not convenient to use for certain functions on different brands.
