Useless

Nice looking product and good quality manufacturing. But it doesnt meet expectations when it comes to do the job, ie use the iPad/iPhone/iPodtouch as remote control to control the cable and TV. First of, my Cable Box remote was not in their database, so I chose a generic one and started the teaching process!. Easy, their step-by-step explanations are very clear (good job here). But the darn thingy it will get all the instructions and it will go to the next step, but when the process was finished and I tried it on my Scientific Atlanta (this is the Comcast box here in south FL), well the buttons were all wrong. I repeated the process several times (maybe 5 or 6) but without success. I had exactly the same problem with the TV remote. I could have called support, but what the heck, ... no time for that. I'll try the L5

I can't believe how great this device works. I honestly think I would be lost without it. I can connect so many devices into it using my ipod touch. I wish I would of bought the one for android products since I own more of those, but for the price of this versus a universal remote I think this would be a great choice!
