^^^ So who's going to be the first to crack open their brand new remote and solder a plug on?   :'
(uhhh, that was supposed to be pointing at what is now the last post on Pg2 !)


Just got off the phone with X10 (again!!).  They once again claim... they JUST got in another shipment over the weekend, and all orders placed before July 30th (I placed mine on the 28th) will be sent out today.

All those who believe them, raise their hand.

Interesting idea. Problem would be; what kind of software would be needed or have to be written to communicate with the end stink Nstinct?

Good point as my Beta Icon with USB port was useless.
I connected it to my computer and XP said a unknown USB device was detected.  B:(

I am pleased to say. FedEx overestimated the delivery date.
Mine arrived this afternoon by Smartpost.  :)%

Real short play time so far.
I think the three minutes setup maybe a stretch.
Using the start up wizard and knowing all the answers. You maybe able to setup one device in three minutes.
If you don't count the time to find batteries in your spare battery drawer and install them.  ;D

Hi Brian I know you just got yours say what about a skip feature, I have a DVR and use it to scan through commercials does this have a key that will allow you to do this. Thanks and how do you like it. ???  :)%

I will have to look and see if the Skip feature is there for DVRs.

Couldn't you program a button from your existing remote?

I didn't see any hard coded button with the Skip feature when in the DVR choice. On the labels or in the manual.
Though I have not done too much with mine. Other than install the Vizio LCD on it and set some favorites.

I did see a few TiVo buttons. Thumbs up; Thumbs Down and TiVo Central.

If you ordered it through the web site.
You should get a "It Shipped" email with a FedEx number.

I've never received a shipping confirmation, only my order confirmation. This must be how it is for Canadian orders.

Canuck here as well. 
No email confirmation as X10 drop ships the order across the border (via courier?), then "ghost X10" north of the border drops it in the mail. 
It's usually about 2 days after that to the left coast here.

I'm actually hoping to have my Nstincts tomorrow. I have 3 on the way (I think) :P
Since they closed their warehouse here in the North, I find it takes 7-9 days to receive orders now. B:(
I have a couple Icon RF remotes now and really like them but I think I will like the button placement better on the Nstinct.
 I really would have liked to see this model include some software and a USB connection as well. Even if only to allow you to backup your remote and/or clone to another. It can be quite time consuming to setup when you have a lot of devices and x10 to control.
Oh well, maybe the next model will have USB. I won't hold my breath though... >*<

Just got my shipping confirmation!   :)%

Nstinct Remote IR34A

Ship date August 3rd.
Estimated delivery date August 12th.

Can't wait to play!

 >!

Arrived today (08/10/2010) two days early!  :)%

Came in a box, with a manual and quick setup sheet.

First thoughts:

  • Most of the buttons are smaller and not where I'm used to finding them.  I guess time will tell whether that's better or worse.    ???
  • I find the white buttons with smaller black print harder to read and IMHO makes it look "cheap".
  • The new positions of the volume and channel buttons are uncomfortable.  If I hold it with my fingers on the bottom in the indent that appears to be made for them, I have to bend my thumb nearly backward to hit the volume buttons.  I can see it needing two-handed operation more often than the older model did.

I suppose I should put the batteries in and see what's new in the programming.   ::)
For those of you that know me...  Hey!  At least it's not still in the box!   rofl

More to come...
