Unfortunately, UEI and by extension One For All, have not placed much emphasis on infrared learning capabilities.Although UEI made much ado about the feature when it was first implemented, discovering that there was only enough memory for a couple of dozen learned commands in total was a disappointment, especially when many competing models could store literally hundreds of codes without breaking a sweat. The Kameleon 8s rather extensive preprogrammed code list includes audio amplifiers, audio receivers, cable boxes, CD players, DVD players, DVD/VCR combos, home automation devices, PVRs, satellite receivers, satellite/PVR combos, televisions, TV/DVD combos, TV/VCR combos, VCRs and miscellaneous video accessories. But in spite of everything, what if something in your home theater still isnt covered?I can actually say that the Kameleon is ergonomically designed and mean it.The underside of the device has what the Web site touts as a "velvet-like bottom housing finish." Whatever you call it, it feels good to me.To use the Learning feature, please click here for instructions or refer to the user manual. We are happy to help you and aim to reply to your questions within 3 working days.The manuals in this section are not just copies of the original manuals that came with your remote, these versions have been updated to include all the info that I have on how to program these remotes, so it's a VERY good idea to print the manual for your remote.Pressing one of them calls up its particular control buttons, sometimes on several "pages." The bright, white-on-blue presentation is easily visible in the dark but fades a bit when the lights are on.
So, if your programming crisis occurs Monday to Friday, 8 AM to 5 PM Eastern time, simply call the toll number and describe your situation. especially when you want to finish programming the remote on weekends or after hours!
The Kameleon 8 does not break this trend, with the manual cautioning that learning capacity is approximately 16 to 25 keys (some manufacturers use longer codes than others, thus the variance in learning space). As weve already seen, the code learning process isnt able to teach an entire devices worth of commands.
In light of this, One For All has yet another option: the Kameleon features a small audio coupler modem that can be used to nearly instantaneously add new preprogrammed codes.
That dynamic blue screen, which comes on automatically via a vibration sensor (yes, it can be turned off, but who'd want to?! Its brightness is settable so it doesn't disrupt the darkness in your home theater.
The buttons are well placed and clearly labeled and the remote fits perfectly in your hand.
