I do not own the SRU8015, but I do own the SRU 9600. To be honest it merely sits on the cabinet now, as it cannot compete with the Harmony remotes in use.
It is a decent remote. What I like is that it does have "Activities", and it is fairly straightforward to set up. I happen to like the heavy weight of it, and the screen is cool.
But, using the "scroll wheel" is not intuitive, I couldn't get the family used to the moves of "Jog" then clicking through.
What I do not like about it is that I cannot "program" it in any way. It does have learning capability, but unlike a Harmony, or even a JP1 style universal remote, I cannot enter custom commands, or EFC commands.
So, it's not a bad remote, it does have its "pluses", but overall it cannot compete with other remotes. If you got for a great price (as I did mine!), try it out and see how you like it.
