I have the madcatz remote and I love it. It actually works with my emerson TV and Fischer VCR. Not many universal remotes work with my TV. There was a change to the instructions on how to program the remote for the TV and VCR. It was a small loose slip of paper in the package. You need to hold fast forward and rewind (top two buttons) instead of rewind and chapter back (from what I remember, I\'ll have to double check). Hope this helps, it\'s a great remote.
