Yeah, the 610 was pretty good. Lots of buttons, quite usable layout.

Although I think the 710 had the best physical quality of any remote they ever made. Shame it was sold for such a short period of time.

610T revived 😁 so it never worked out for me with the 610T on my pace set-top box. So bought a Philips sru8008, which actually works very well and is programmable to anyone's likes. I like the screen where you can create your own preferred buttons and scroll through. Database even had my popcorn a110 available. And also price wize very complete for around 40$. But things change, popcorn, hdd dvd recorder and pace have been replaced by a Panasonic set-top box dmr HCT230 , which is a gem. The philips remote could handle it, but the kids dropped it and the battery door broke, and I can't get a replacement. it was held by a wire last months... I was actually already trying to find a new remote, and found an x sight model that may do the deal. But then last week I recalled having the 610T still somewhere, and yes, despite having some battery leakage, I got it reinstated, and I still love it! All buttons programmed to my liking, and my 5 year old son also already knows his way 😉 So let's see how long I can enjoy. If this one dies I'll be checking here what the best replacement will be....

My old 710 is still going strong! And I have a couple of 600's that are still working, too. Anyone know if they've worked out the learning bug on the 620? I'm thinking of picking up a couple from Amazon for Xmas presents.

Believe it or not putting in a new set of Alkaline batteries...not dollar store cheapies or rechargeable...actually worked! I've been wanting to upgrade from the 610 because I like the button location better on the 620. I didn't know about the learning defect until I went to program it. I was VERY sceptical that changing the batteries would actually work. My new remote is all programmed and ready to go thanks to this forum.

USE GOOD BATTERIES TO GET LEARN TO WORK.
I wasn't using rechargeable, but was using cheap CVS store brand batteries. Switched them out and the learning worked on the first try. Now that I got this figured out.. I'm quite happy with the remote. Thanks for the help everyone.

Yes, the VLZ620 seems *very* sensitive to voltage levels when it comes to learning. Brand new, quality alkaline batteries are pretty much a must.

Having owned, programmed extensively, and used a 710 and two of the 600's for several years now, I recently purchased and set up the 620. I find the extra buttons very useful.

My Denon receiver has 8 inputs, and the 620 has 8 Device Control buttons. I set it up so that holding down each button launches an activity associated with the corresponding input.

There are four System Control buttons. Button 4 executes a macro to shut everything off.

All is wonderful so far.

Buttons 1 through 3 each execute macros for the three of the eight most-used activities, so they are copies of the macros on three of the Device Control buttons, but despite being exact copies, they don't do the same thing!

At the end of the macro the last button pressed is the corresponding Device Control button, with the purpose of leaving the remote control in the state where it controls that device. But when the System Control buttons are used to execute these macros they don't do that! They leave the remote in a state where it's controlling whatever device it was set to control before the macro was executed.

Very annoying. Can anyone suggest a work-around?
