It can be maddening to anyone who owns multiple electronics components to have a pile of remotes on the table, and even more of a mess when you throw in the controllers for video games.
Universal Remote Control’s new Universal Gamer UR7-G2 remote control provides gamers with the same convenience that home theater and whole-house A/V systems owners already own with their universal remote controls. The UR7-G2 has the ability to control all of today’s popular video game consoles while also controlling their existing movie and music components.
The remote features buttons to control the Xbox 360 and Sony’s PlayStation 2, and it can also control an additional six products such as a HDTV, TiVo, A/V receiver and satellite or cable set-top box.
The remote can execute macro commands, and it has a complete menu of learning capabilities to enable it to control any product quickly and easily. Additionally, with a learning capability for 160 new commands it’s chance of becoming obsolete is virtually eliminated.
