Review 2 made on April 3, 2002.
Strengths:Looks, locked parental controls, sat capability
Weaknesses:Just changes channels, can't start a tape
Review:Nice idea in a remote. The colorful style keeps the kids interested a bit, they still want dad's remote, but this helps. Mine are actually a bit young so far at 3 and 2, this would probably be better for 4+ ages.

The capability is great for sat systems. I've used it both for Dish and DirecTV. I wouldn't buy the version 1 Weemote because it didn't have sat capability. Also, the defeatable volume keys are a very good idea.

It seems to be pretty solid, able to take a drop ok. Which it ought to be. This should be the most shock-resistant remote available considering its users.

Only problem is for videos. Play and Stop buttons would've been nice. No more, they don't need to scan through a tape or anything. We tend to have a tape or DVD just sitting constantly in the player for the kids. It would be nice to access those.

I got mine discounted a bit to $20, now they're at $15, so the value is getting better. Course, maybe they're disappearing.

Review 1 made on February 13, 2002.
Strengths:Works very well with my Directivo system. Has channel change at power on and 9 channel capability.
Weaknesses:Does not control my Kenwood VR-407 receiver.
Review:This product is great for anyone with kids who want to sleep past 6:00 am on the weekends. The auto channel change at power on is great for those times you might be watching HBO at night and forget to change the channel before you go to bed. It works flawlessly with my Directivo. It would be nice if it controlled my receiver but I just have it control the TV volume instead. You just have to make sure that you set the rule that this remote is only for when Daddy is not watching or you will be fighting for control of the TV.
