Hands-free voice control… Just say the word, and freedom is yours.

Voice Control
RCA’s Voice Control Universal Remote gives you the freedom you desire.  Just say the word, and you can easily control your home theater by using just your voice.  Imagine – a few simple words can turn all your devices, change the volume setting, surf through your favorite channels, start a movie, turn everything off when you’re done and more.  All without you ever touching a button.


RCRV06GR
Features:
•    Operates via hands-free voice control or traditional button press
•    Listens to and executes voice commands you pick
•    Provides built-in, voice-guided setup and help
•    Simplifies channel surfing with favorite channel shortcuts
•    Learns commands from your original remote with auto code search, brand code search, or direct code entry
•    Menu support - access the menu functions of the device you are controlling
•    Guide support - on-screen program guide for satellite and cable
•    Backlit key pad
•    Previous channel and expanded transport keys
•    Requires four AAA batteries (sold separately)

Expanded transport keys:

   
Expanded DVD/DVR/VCR control buttons allow you to properly operate your devices.  These buttons include Reverse, Play, Forward, Record, Stop, Pause, Skip Back, Slow and Skip Forward.


Up to 25 programmable activities:
400 brands
Activities (or macros) let you condense multi-step actions, like setting up your home theater to watch a DVD, into a single voice action (traditionally requiring multiple key presses).  But this remote goes one step further and gives you the power to execute these activities using voice commands you pick.


Volume and transport key punch-through
 
The RCA Voice Control Remote offers two ways of minimizing the number of button presses required for everyday actions:
25-voice-enabled-activities
Controls up to 6 devices:
6 DeviceTV
SAT•CBL•DTC
DVD
DVR•AUX1
AUDIO
VCR•AUX2

Punch-through

 
By default, the remote "punches through" volume commands to the device programmed for the TV button, regardless of which mode you're in.  This means you can control TV volume while you're watching a DVD or cable/satellite programming without having to press the TV button first. 

Smart Source

help

RCRV06GR-lifestyle-1
Smart Source is a patented technology that lets you decide which entertainment device you want to use for common functions such as volume, channel or disc playback control.  Once you've set up Smart Source, these buttons are "locked" to the device you use them with, regardless of which device mode you're in.

Smart Source locking is most useful if you use single devices in your home theater to change channels, control volume and play/stop/pause DVDs. If, for example, your TV controls volume for your entire home theater, set Smart Source control for the volume keys to your TV.

Smart Source can also simplify voice programming, by reducing the number of button presses required to perform a function.

Not all its cracked up to be. Oct. 13 2010
By ed666 - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Over all it is ok. But the voice commands are to slow for any thing but general device selection off / on. Voice is useless for freezing actions at an exact point. You must say the "words remote control" then wait for a beep then what you want to do. It does not find the codes for older TVs or DVR'S. But seems to find the new models fine. It does have a learn from other remote ability for learning one button at a time but has a 25 learn remote button limit. This is designed to fill in gaps in remotes that have special keys for exact models after basic keys are found by the codes. I have 2 TIVO series 2 DVRs a Toshiba and a Humax. It found a code that runs half the keys on the Toshiba, but none on the Humax. And not enough learning space to learn all the Humax never mind the other half of the Toshiba. but if you have all newer equipment and only want the remotes voice functions for basics channel up/down, go to espn, power in a non time required way it will do the job.

Not all its cracked up to be.

Works great for my sister Aug. 8 2011

My sister has MS, so she cannot use her hands. Since April 2011 she is using this voice control remote. Now she is able to change all things on her TV. All is working fine and she is really happy.

Terrific remote! March 11 2011
By J. Hays - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I'm not exactly certain what problems others had with this particular remote control, but as a disabled person who is having an increasingly difficult time physically controlling all of my electronic devices, this remote is a godsend. Right now it controls my television set, and more importantly, my Comcast DVR. I'm hoping that I will be able to manage somehow to get it to recognize my PlayStation 3. On occasion, you have to be loud with your keyword, but so far it hears me and does as I command. I'm actually thinking about buying another one as a spare backup.

Works great for my 88 year old Mom Aug. 5 2011
By Charles L. Lindsay - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
My Mom is 88 and she finds a normal remote difficult following a small stroke. This remote solved a lot of problems for us. It's very easy to program and allows programming multiple commands to a single verbal command. So all she has to say is "Power" and both the TV and Satellite box turn on or off. If she says "CNN" her Satellite Box goes to the right channel. Love it.

Best Remote on Amazon at ANY Price! March 31 2012
By The AngelArs Foundation - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I am in the process of automating my house so that I can give voice commands and the house will respond by turning the lights on/off, closing/opening the garage door, turning the fireplace on/off, etc. etc. The only thing that I couldn't do was to control the TV so I started looking for a remote control that used your voice to control the TV. I found a couple that cost hundreds and hundreds of dollars but that was way to much. Then on a whim I came here to Amazon to see if they had anything, and that's when I found this remote. At first I was excited because this remote had all the features that I required, but then I saw the $15.00 price and became concerned. At 15 bucks I thought it would be more of a toy, or that none of its features would work as described. Boy was I surpassed when I found out how incredibly well this voice remote worked. Right out of the box without training it to recognize my voice it was able to control my TV - all with just my voice! It has a help button on the remote and it actually `talks you through' every step, step by step, to help you to program the remote correctly. What a cool feature. I was up and running for everything that I needed in around 15 minutes. What a nice surprise!

After everything was working I took some time to look through the manual a little deeper, and I can tell you now that all of the complaints posted here about this remote are for the most part unfounded. These people simply didn't read the manual, and that's NOT the remotes fault. It only goes through batteries quickly if you don't program it correctly. A little common sense is in order here. It uses voice commands, so of course it needs to hear (listen) for your voice. There is a button that turns this feature on/off OR you can simply clap your hands to turn the remote on. This way it saves the batteries. You can even set the sensitivity of the mic (which at this price point is a very welcomed surprise). You do NOT have to say "remote control" to get it to respond, but you do have to give it a name so it knows that you want to give it a command. How else would it know that you're talking to it? There is a feature which allows you to name it ANYTHING that you want (yes, anything). So if you want to call your remote "Bob" - and you want to turn your TV on - then you would say "Bob" and it would make a sound to let you know that it's listening, and then you would say "TV Power" and the TV would magically turn on, all without touching anything. Pretty flawless actually. You can control a fair amount of things this way - all without ever touching the remote. I named my remote "Computer" after the computer that is in the TV show Star Trek. Now when I wake up in the morning I say "Computer, TV power" and the TV turns on. That's exactly what I wanted in a voice remote, and for a measly 15 bucks I don't think anyone should be complaining about this remote. I only took off one star because you can only teach it to do a pre-set amount of things, and after you start using voice commands you'll want to control everything this way, but other than that it's great. It DOES do what it says it does AS LONG as you read the manual and program it correctly. As I use this remote more and learn of its extra features I will update this review from time to time. This is definitely the best bargain currently on Amazon. It's not going to cook you dinner or do the laundry when you tell it to, BUT for turning on/off your TV, controlling the volume, changing channels, etc it does do these common remote commands flawlessly - all with just your simple voice command. Seriously, it's less than 15 bucks, life is good...
