For all of those customers out there who buy a home theater system and are left with literally 6 remotes, I have a solution. Firstly, let me say that my solution is not cheap but it is worth it. My company works with Universal Remote, you should go to www.universalremote.com and check out what they have to offer.
The whole point I am trying to make here is, why have 6 remotes when 1 can do it all. These remote controls are programmed by trained programmers, the regular Joe Shmoe is capable of programming if he/she understands the logic behind it. The capabilities a universal remote has is countless, we can control audio/video products, lighting, and drapes. If the item you want to control has IR (infrared) control then it can be controlled by this remote. Also these remotes can be turned into RF mode (radio frequency) meaning you could be in another room and control your system or lights.
The remotes range from $300 and up depending on what you'd like, the programming ranges from $200 and up. Like I said earlier, its not a cheap solution but it is worth it. This remote control can also be a one touch controller, you can hit the cable button and your TV will turn on, the cable box will turn on, the receiver will turn on and your ready to go. Where as before you'd have to grab the TV remote, then the cable remote and then the AV receiver remote. Sounds like a pain to me. Its a simple solution for your home theater, where there is no confusion.
