One for All Sky Plus
Advantages: It does have good battery life
Disadvantages: Buttons seem to wear away quickly
I do have a Sky Plus HD box currently and I do have a multi room subscription as well and this uses the All in One remote control and I have to say that I am not that impressed.
The control is designed specifically for the new boxes which enable Sky Plus and this is a feature which lets you pause and rewind live television and watch programmes stored on your box.
The control has curve towards to the top which is there to give you an idea I believe that it is a remote for a different box and as sad as that sounds it has to be the only reason for it. You have the huge battery compartment on the back which is seriously over the top.
On the front you have all the buttons you have on a normal Sky remote but you have some extra ones there which you use for the new features. You have the normal buttons such as play and pause and you have a record button as well.
I will admit they are labelled very well but after a few months those labels tend to disappear quickly due to how cheaply they have been added on. You have various shaped buttons to try and give the control a more unique feel and sensation and thankfully they did that.
In the dark you cannot see what your pressing due to the lack of light and the only light you do see is when you are tapping buttons so that to me is a huge problem they have got and something they could have
The control apparently enables you to work your television a well and I managed to do that quite easily and it has lasted but at times I find that I need to keep on checking and reinstalling the number I was given to activities this feature.
I mean the control is useful because it has all the extra features which you want and you do have plenty to admire when it does arrive brand new but the excess weight is not needed. The control is so bulky and it seems to weigh far too much for my liking. I admit the batteries do last an extraordinary long time and this is cheap batteries as well I put inside.
I would have liked a light to use at night time and perhaps a smaller backing for the battery compartment. The way the symbols erase themselves on the buttons is quite shocking and the buttons are quite soft and when you press them down you do believe they are pretty good.
Overall the control you have got here you need to use but they could have done so much more to make it much easier to enjoy.
Summary: A control you must have but could be much better
