"SONY remote control"

The Sony RM AV3000 is a dynamic peice of equiptment. It mimics the remote control of loads of devices. By using the touch screen control, it reduces the shown buttons to only the ones you require for the device you are controling, instead of having hundreds of buttons for every option which i found mind blowing on competitor units.
Be aware though its a big peice of equiptment, it looks more like a desk top calculator on your sofa arm than a remote control, the clever boffins have made the infared so strong that you don't have to point it in any particular direction so it can just stay next to you on the sofa arm; your device will pick up the signal easily.
I really like the ability to programme this unit, mine is set up to switch off my TV, DVD, Amplifier and projector all in one button press, or to set up for cinema (amp on/tv off/projector on etc) programming wasn't too difficult; even for me.
Be warned though; don't throw away the instructions, as you add new devices you will need the instructions to programme these.
I like it, and i wouldn't consider myself a gadget lover, but i think the size might out people off.
