Chances are you have a dozen items you want to control. So something pretty flexible might be in order.
If you don’t want to spend as much on a custom installer programming your remote as you did on the remote itself, give the Logitech Harmony line a look.
Crutchfield currently has the Harmony One, an activity-based remote with both hard keys and touchscreen, for only $159.99 after coupon code 3A825.
The online programming interface ensures you won’t need a Computer Science degree to figure out setting up all of your devices and activities.
The high-res LCD serves up favorite channels, device/activity logos, and even custom screen savers ... if you can put it down long enough for the screen saver to kick in.
