UNIVERSAL REMOTE CONTROLS

Philips iPronto

The more components you have in your home theater system, the more remote controls you accumulate. And it's not just remote clutter that's a problem; for many operations you have to turn on the TV, switch to a specific input, turn on your A/V receiver, switch to a specific input there, then turn on the playback device and press play. This type of multi-stage operation typically involves three (or more) individual remotes, which is a real pain in the palm.


A better solution is to use a universal remote that can operate multiple devices and be programmed for multiple-step operations. That's what we'll look at in this section, starting with this remote that looks (and acts) more like a tablet PC—the Philips iPronto.
