    I would have to disagree with your statement that “it fits your hand really well.”

    I can see where that would be true for “man hands” but I have small girl/woman hands and the combined remote is a little too large to fit comfortably in my palm and still allow me to use the buttons effortlessly. I suspect if you ask some people with small hands to try it out, they would likely agree that it is not that comfortable or easy to use.

    However, I only need to use the Power/Vol Up/Vol Down buttons for the TV, so just programmed the bottom three buttons (input, A, B) to perform these functions, slid the FireTV remote down in the clip (sideclick remote up) and now I can grip the lower portion of the FireTV remote like normal but still access the bottom three sideclick buttons easily. It is a little odd looking that way so it takes away a star for me, but it is so much more comfortable to use and I am glad not to have to look for the second remote to change the volume all the time. I can see where larger hands would have no problems with the design.

      The truth is I have small hands. My Mom and I have the exact same hand size. I would have to say for 99% of adults and even teens this easily fits in one hand.

    Love it! I have one question. What about our sound bar? Can the volume be used to control that? I have four remotes in the living room, TV, AppleTV, Roku and Sound Bar. UGH

      You can program the buttons to any remote you want. Each button can be programmed to a different remote if you want.

    Great review. Could this be used to power on two different sources? I have my current Tivo remote programmed to turn on power to both my soundbar and TV with the same button input.

    Does this also work with the Roku Ultra remote? Just wanted to be sure since others were mentioned, but not that one. Thanks.
