New Nstinct Remote
« on: July 31, 2010, 01:03:25 PM »

Hi any one tried this new remote yet looking for a review hopefully. Looks like the keys are laid out more to my liking might try one since I guess I'll have to have my Harmony remote repaired after I sat on it by mistake.  B:(

I ordered mine the day the pop up showed on the web site. 07/26/2010
Still no verification from X10 as to if it shipped yet.
Though they had no problem adding the order price to my credit card.
Will try to report what I can when it ever gets here.

No thoughts on it yet.
There isn't even a manual for it to download. Unless x10 sneaked it in today.  ;D

I figured for $30, WTF - took the plunge (also on the day the 100,000 ad's started appearing!).
Add me to the list of no notification of shipping - but it's pretty soon.

Hope it pans out well though (and has had more testing than the last pile of recent X10 products that seem to have been tested by a blind one arm pygmy with no electricity to use).

... looks smaller the the older x10 remote...
That was my first impression as well.... Until I read the specs that show it the same size as the IconRemote RF - 9" x 2.25"   :(

Well Brian I do believe x10 has become a cash cow after realizing they could make more
interest on money sitting in their account while the customer gets madder and madder and finally after no help from anyone I finally canceled my over $200.00 order, guess what? the money is still sitting in their account. Might need a lawyer with a wrecker to get my own money back from the game masters!!!!

Well I tried the Order Status form on the Customer Support Site and will see if I ever get an answer.

Update: Submitted request 3 time now for order status.
Screen says give computer 10 minutes for an email reply.
Well 24 hours for the first one. Still no reply and I know my email account allows X10 messages. The order confirmation and X10 Bucks ones always get to me.

Anyone think that maybe these remotes don't exist ('cept for maybe a few prototypes).

They've taken off with the cash from the millions of orders for them, and NOW they're going to develop and build them!
The ultimate in OPM engineering!

I'd give them more credit than that, because they have a working model that has been shipping for 3 years now...

I think this one is very similar to the IconRemote RF.  The only difference I see is the location, size and shape of the buttons.  People complained about the VCR controls on the bottom - now they're on top of the numbers, for example.

Programming looks the same from the description...  Nothing ground-breaking here.  :-\

I hated the placement of the VCR controls who thought that design up one of the major reasons I didn't buy the first one . I just didn't like the lay out of the buttons, actually they could of moved the VCR controls up a tad further like on my Harmony. Over all with the RF built in and macros plus the price I'm thing it might be a winner might even buy two!

I was kidding about the conspiracy theory....   ;)

Just got off the phone with X10 (as MY 'where is my order' emails were also going unanswered!). 
Seems they are out of stock (would have been NICE if the guy I placed the order with told me that dontcha think?!), but CLAIM that they will be in, and shipping, in the next couple of days and that I (we?) will be getting a 'shipped' confirmation email.

Time will tell.

Just placed an order for mine this morning hopefully I'll receive it in the next week or so. Say would who ever gets theirs first PLEASE place a review, kind of concerned about that skip button because I use it a lot on my DVR how could they have missed that key, anyone know if the old one had one. Hopefully it has one and I just didn't see it.

I ordered another one of the prior Icon RF remotes that I had beta tested, but received a notice yesterday that they shipped the new Nstinct IR34A instead. 

Other than button positions, and the sleeker appearance, I wonder what the differences are.
