One feature that we think consumers will love (because we do) is the "punch through" control for the channel, transport and on-screen display. The punch through control allows individual buttons to be programmed for several different functions. For example, for transport control, you can program the play, stop, pause, skip, etc., buttons to operate for as both DVD and DVR controls, as well as additional component modes.
The learning mode function is especially helpful. While this mode can be found on other universal remotes in our side-by-side comparison, but because of the disjointed on-screen setup and device code selection on the URCR50, we believe the learning mode function could prove to be an easier setup route for this remote.
This all-in-one remote is ergonomically designed, but not as well as the Logitech Harmony One or the Logitech Harmony 700, our top two universal remote products. The front of the R50 has a unique design that we find appealing, and the buttons are organized in a logical order, which every consumer will love.
The color screen of the R50 is not a touch screen, unfortunately, but the activity and channel icons can be seen on the screen and their designated buttons are located conveniently on the side.
