grip and is very stable when you put it
down on the table. And it even comes
with a wrist strap so you can’t lose it
down the side of your chair or sofa.
The setup can be done easily using brand
codes, to be found in the manual. Or use
the simple learning feature to put any
function from any device onto the TV
This remote works for everyone who wants
to simplify control of complex
audio/visual devices. Price is £13.99.
