It don't control everything, but for the IR stuff it's fine
9 May 2019
At first, I bought that to control the home gate, it didn't work for that, but it is my fault, I taken the wrong model, if you need to control the RF devices make sure to take the pro version instead of this. By the way, it is useful for the TV. My brother broke the remote and use the tv was quite uncomfortable, but now I can use it by google home o with my phone which is even better than a regular remote.
But, remember a couple of things:
1- inside the box there is the usb cable to connect the broadlink mini 3 to the electricity, but not the wall socket adapter, you should use one from an old phone that you already have for example, or connect it to the TV's usb port, but I don't suggest this last connection because in that case, you can not use it while the TV is off.
2- do not use the application suggested in the box, search Intelligent Home Centre by broadlink or IHC (non the EU edition) in Google Play or Apple App store, it is much better to set up the mini 3
3- if you want to connect the device to your alexa or google assistant, make sure to connect it to IHC standard and not to IHC for EU (this one if for users from Europe)
4- sometime the app looks broken when you try to search the presets for your devices (especially for the TVs), well, I don't know why, but some day's the search menu works and some days not... Maybe they didn't put enough servers
