I purchased the XTR39 and spent several days unsuccessfully attempting to program it to replace all the remotes in my professional home theater. Although the XTR39 seems a quality product, well designed and capable of meeting all its advertising claims, the skimpy instruction manual is perhaps the worst I have ever seen. The instructions appear to assume the user is familiar with Xantech's IR arcane programming methodologies. As a technically inclined gadget freak, I was continually frustrated by obvious errors and ommissions in the manual (e.g., the "permanent" most-often-used controls below the LCD are shown in the manual, but there are NO INSTRUCTIONS for programming them. NONE! an amazing oversight. I attempted to get tech assistance from Xantech by phone and by e-mail, but have received no response thus far. I have just requested a return (RMA) authorization for a refund. Needless to say, I would not recommend the XTR39 and I will now await the availability of the Phillips SRU9600.
