The Sony RMVLZ620 Integrated Remote Commander is an impressive name for what is, quite frankly, a pretty impressive device for a replacement remote control.

You can control up to eight devices from this single remote. It's got a database of common codes built-in and it comes with a sheet of hundreds more. If you have the existing remotes handy you can place each one a few inches in front of the RMVLZ620 one at a time and "teach" it how to take the place of each remote.

This remote can also learn up to 12 16-step macros (or "consecutive procedures" as Sony calls them)—one for each of the eight controllable devices and four that you can play back via the four "System Buttons" at the bottom of the remote. And it will use the on-screen displays of compatible TVs and DVD players.

The twin infrared LEDs mean greater range and a wider angle of use. You can be as far as 11 feet (33 meters) from the devices you're controlling. The RMVLZ620 also has a simple lock and unlock function. This is not a parental lock. Your tweens and teenagers can figure it out faster than you can say, "Don't watch..." This lock is to prevent inadvertent use and to keep your toddler from blasting your Whitesnake CD at 7 o'clock in the morning.

Batteries aren't included so be sure to add a couple of AAs to your cart. Once installed they'll last about a year with average use (which Sony generously defines as up 300 button pushes a day).

The Sony RMVLZ620 Integrated Remote Commander has features not common in such an affordable remote. It's truly one remote to rule them all.

    Works well for DISH, my Toshiba TV and Onkyo receiver. Doesn't work for my Sony CD changer or Phillips DVR. Better than previous Sonys in this class, but some oft used buttons are too small, awkwardly placed and hard to find without ambient light.

    I purchased this to replace 3 remotes used on 4 different products.
    My Sony component is the only one that the codes worked for, the other components I had to use the learn mode. Even doing that, the remote will not learn a decimal point for my Sanyo TV.

    The keys do not light up, so using it in a dark room is a challenge.

    The build quality is good. It is a step up from your generic universal remote control.

    At the end of the day, if I want 100 percent of my component's functions, I need 2 remotes.

        Comments about Sony RMVLZ620 Integrated Remote Commander:

        Sony has always made terrific remote controls and this one is no different. This one can replace most Cable Box remotes and certainly works better than my TWC remote. I needed this for a specific reason. I have a set of powered speakers that are remote controlled but I did not want to have to use a separate remote to adjust the volume when listening to the TV. The speakers don't have a code so you can't use a universal remote with them. Not a problen since this remote has a learning function. It also has a macro function so you can have it do several things with a press of a single button. The price is certainly right on this unit compared to others out there. The only complaint I could have is that I wish it lit up. I would have paid $ more for that ability.

          Comments about Sony RMVLZ620 Integrated Remote Commander:

          This is the only low cost universal remote I've found that had a working code for a 4 year old Viore TV. I bought this for a relative who was given the TV for Xmas and had a woefully underpowered factory remote w/ a loose battery containment compartment. We constantly had to pull the cover off the factory remote and adjust the batteries to get it to work.
          With the addition of a new Cisco cable box, I decided to look for a "learning remote" that could control both devices. I was fully ready to teach this Sony unit all the commands from the Viore factory remote since every other universal I tried did not have the built in codes for this TV.
          The documentation w/ this Sony came with 2 pre-set Viore codes and I thought lets try them on the off chance one would work. The second code "took" which saved me a lot of programming. Within ten minutes, 3 devices were up and operating and I programmed one of the macros to turn on and off each device with one button.
          I might buy another for myslf soon.

          Overall it is good once programmed. Much better than the remote that came with our STB. It has macro functioning which is why I bought it. The macros seem to work ok, but nothing like the 200 dollar remotes will. Can be hard to program at times. The learning function is absolutely incredible and makes this remote a breeze to use. Sometimes, the remote seems to take a mind of its own. Overall recommended for this price range.

            This is a high quality universal remote. It will control most any brand of t.v., blu-ray, dvd, vcr, cable, satellite, cd and receiver on the market. Nice detailed, easy to understand instructions. Pre-programmed for your Sony brand products. Nice feel and ergonomic. Also learns commands from other remotes. It's a steal of a deal! Way better than other brands of universal remotes. I use it daily. I own mostly Sony equipment. But, it's works great with my old Onkyo cd changer and Panasonic vcr. It also allows me to use all the functions on my Comcast XFinity HD-receiver. I was glad to get rid of that bulky XFinity remote! Plus it has a very strong signal output. Way better than others!

                  My home theater system consists of a Sony LCD TV, Sony BD player, Sony receiver and Comcast DVR made by Motorola. The Remote Commander replaces every remote and every button on each remote. The Sony bits needed minimal programming, out of the box. The first code that I entered for the DVR also worked with minimal programming.

                  I like that when I just hit the "TV" button, the system figures out that the TV is not on and turns it on without my having to go to the Power button. Then the receiver is smart enough to turn itself on (or off), when the TV turns on (or off).

                          This remotes comes with a lot of pre-programmed devices and most like of of them will fit yours with no further action. If you wish to customize it to more closely mimic the original remote, every single key can be programmed with a "learned" code from the original remote. Additionally, it has 4 keys that can be programmed with key-sequences (macros) to perform sevaral functions with a single keystroke (e.g. trun on the TV, turn on the Amplifier, select Video1).
                          The only drawback is that special functions (like learning a new code) are cumbersome to program: each requires a 4-digit sequence that indicates what you want to do.

                              I always buy Sony remotes versus the cheap universals for one reason. They have enough memory to teach every single function on every key on every device. I hate the half working universal codes. I bought this to replace a Sony RM-VL600. It is superior in every way except one. It doesn't have input labels on the number keys like the old remote forcing you to either program the device keys to do it or remember which input you assigned to each number. Also, the programming sequence is a bit harder than the old one. Otherwise it is a great sequel to the original. I use it with a Dish 222K, Onkyo HT-RC260, LG HDTV, and LG BD650 Bluray. Works flawlessly with each. Macro commands work every time. I took off one star for the lack of labels and the slightly harder programming process.

                                The original controller that came with my Sony TV was not working very well. I bought this one from B&H and am very happy with it. It came programmed to run most all Sony equipment, which is what I have. I did have to teach it to control the converter box since I have an older TV, but now we do not need to use the convertor box controller and can run everything with just the new remote control.

                                There are other things I can program the controller to do, like programming it to do more than one thing with just one button and running just about any other product that has a remote controller, like an air-conditioner or fan.

                                  I was able to use this remote with my Sony HDTV, my Sony Blue Ray DVD, my Apple TV as well as my Cablevision cable box (Scientific Atlanta). So now I have 1 remote instead of 4 - It took me 10 minutes to program it.[...] I love buying from B&H.Some of the buttons are a little small, but overall I am very happy with this.

                                    I use the RMVLZ620 at home, I programmed it to be used with all TVs, even had it learned the WDTV Remote Functions, can control AppleTV as well.

                                    Had it for just one week, So far so good.

                                    Works well for DISH, my Toshiba TV and Onkyo receiver. Doesn't work for my Sony CD changer or Phillips DVR. Better than previous Sonys in this class, but some oft used buttons are too small, awkwardly placed and hard to find without ambient light.
