One For All Xsight Touch

The Good Good design; controls loads of devices; easy to set up; rechargeable battery; comes with cradle.

The Bad Screen isn't perfect; software only works on Windows; the buttons can be hard to press.

The Bottom Line While the One For All Xsight Touch's LCD touchscreen isn't the best we've seen, it's more than adequate for controlling your home-cinema system. We love the way this remote sets itself up. Within half an hour, you'll probably have basic control over all your AV gear. The PC software is rather annoying but you don't absolutely have to have a PC to use the Touch, and setting it up can be as easy as pressing a few touch-sensitive buttons

In order to control your selection of hardware, you simply press the 'settings' button on the device's LCD screen, and enter the device set-up menu. From there, you choose the type of device you're trying to control.
