Re: [PLUG] TV Remote Control Ideas Needed

I believe the harmony remotes have that section of the market all sewed up, unless diy is a major component of your desire.

So I bought a new Hi-Def TV for Christmas, and then just got a new receiver to handle it. Now I need some way to unify the 236 remote control hand units I've got cluttering my coffee table.


Anybody have any suggestions to achieve these requirements?


  1. Turn on and off the TV and Receiver with a single button
  2. Single, easy-to-use remote to control all the devices in all their multiple modes
  3. Macro capability to send programmed sequences to turn on/off, select sources, etc
  4. Customizable, so I don't have to have 643 buttons, when I only use 6


This seems like an ideal application for a small android device, but I don't think they have the IR LED capability to make it work.


Anybody have any suggestions?
