You can use this to change the volume, input, power on your TV or soundsystem when watching stuff via a media device. Otherwise you need separate remote(s) to control that stuff.

Even $20 seems kind of pricey for what is essentially a $10 remote.

Just an FYI, if you have a recent TV, i.e. in the past 5 years or so, you can most likely control the FireTV and other devices with your TVs remote.

I bought one of these before I realized that and planned on buying several more, but then realized that my two flat screens could control the FireTV through the HDMI port. Obviously you still need the FireTV remote if you want the voice functions, but for every day stuff, using the TV remote works just fine.

As for this device, it does work pretty well. I use it for our older DLP TV that doesn't support control via the HDMI port.

EDIT: Here's a link to a guide on how to find out if your TV/.remote is compatible and how to enable if it is: https://www.howtogeek.com/207186/...ou-should/

It turns your remote into a universal remote to be used with any IR device. You can program up to 8 buttons. The question is, how don't you need it?

Any word on if this will work with Fire TV Cube? The lack of a volume button on their remote means I will always have to have another remote unless I want to use voice commands every time. If this is compatible (which I assume it is, it's IR after all) then I will actually be able to bring it down to one remote.

A lot of newer TVs have the ability to wake up the device via HDMI input and even increase/decrease the volume of the tv via the hdmi device. This is usually a feature of HDMI found in your TV's setup.

My 2011 LG tv can be turned on via my Apple TV 4 and I can control the volume with the ATV remote. My point is this kind of remote may not be necessary for a lot of people but they don't realize. Of course turning off my TV still requires a remote or I just let the aggressive power saving setting sense there's nothing playing and it auto turns in off in a few minutes.

Yeah I think the bigger issue would be how to turn off the TV. Is this controllable over HDMI?

You can not do Amazon home to FTV if using TV remote control.
