Nice looking remote. Styling is very similar to the xsight. It looks like they're actually trying to create a cohesive product line. Looks like instead of 6 device buttons, it just has 2 arrow keys for cycling through them. And they've called the macro keys "activities" to compete with logitech, I suppose. Price isn't bad either.

Hope it's JP1.3. Got any inside info, Rob?

HERE's the blurb at remotecentral.

PIP keys are not obvious.

Just got word that it does have a JP1 6-pin. Apparently the US and Europe will be getting different models. Folks in the UK can order it through the Argus catalogue.

Well now. Yes, indeedy.

Now that I have a house and I'm out of the apartment, and now that OFA has come out with this remote, I have a feeling I may be visiting these forums an awful lot more.

When OFA stopped making the 6131 (old style - which if backlit would have been the best remote for me for Tivo - EVER), I was ashamed to admit that I had gone to the Harmony side with the 670. I may be back. This remote certainly bears some looking into.

I now have one of these in my possession and I can confirm that it has a 6-pin, but it has the small opening so I can't connect my cable yet, I'll need to either get an adapter or a new IDC connector.

Could we impose upon you take a couple of pics Rob? Maybe including one or two with the new remote next older remotes for comparison?

Sure, I can do that, however the pic at the top of this page really does capture what the remote looks like. In terms of length, it's longer than a URC-6131 but shorter than a 15-1994 (the two remotes that I just happened to have on hand to compare), and it's thinner than both of them.

Thanks Rob. About how wide is it compared to the 6131 and 1994?

I'm at work now, but from memory I'd say maybe a little narrower. All in all it feels like a small remote because it's so thin, it doesn't have the big bulb like shape that UEI uses for the IR end of many of it's remotes. I suppose it's a similar size and shape to the URC-8820.

Rob,
when you get a chance, could you see if the pins inside are the (so far) standard .100" spacing? And maybe you could get a good approximation of the small opening through which you access the pins?
Thanks.
Jim

I just compared the remote to a URC-8820 and they're pretty much the same size. The pins are standard spacing. I just took the strain relief off my cable and tried downloading, but IR says that it couldn't open the JP1.x interface, so I probably need to open up the remote to see what chip is inside. I hope I'm doing something silly as that's a better option than UEI giving us yet another interface type to worry about. Can you say JP1.4?
