    Does anyone have any experience with the X10 iconRemote? www.x10iconremote.com

    I have a TV, DVD player, Digital Cable Box, and TiVo. I
    like the look of it, but I am unfamiliar with the company.

    Any input is welcome.
     
  2. The company is not generally well regarded as a consequence of some of
    their advertising practices regarding popup ads ~5 or so years ago.

    For many Internet users, X10 came to epitomize invasive and
    bothersome Internet marketing...

    However, this is not a reflection on the products themselves, but rather
    the marketing department.

    As far as the products, I had some of their original home automation
    switches something like 10-15 years ago (might still have them in a box
    in the basement), sold through Radio Shack at the time, and my opinion
    was that they were perfectly functional although not an exceptional
    value at the regular price. I've not used any of their IR remote
    control products.

    I went out and bought the icon remote sometime ago, completely on a
    whim. I have to admit to liking it so far. I wasn't really aware of
    X10's reputation regarding their marketing practices, but from the
    look of it, some things never change ; )
    Great remote though.
