No matter what the A/V device, there's always one more remote to control it. And with today's advanced home theater systems, operating any one of them can be frustrating.

Button layout is not convenient for buttons used most. Also, no setup instructions were included, so it's not evident as you're configuring a certain task it if you're doing it correctly or not. Seems like the setup could be made more user-friendly.
