Make operating your home cinema easier than ever with just one easy-to-use unit that'll operate your TV, VCR, DVD, tuner, satellite receiver, digital set-top box, CD player, amplifier and receiver regardless of the brand or model. Enjoy one-touch convenience when watching your favorite movies.

Extensive infrared code database for most devices & brands
A universal IR code database refers to a library of infrared codes built-in to a particular remote. This feature allows a remote to control your equipment without needing to learn individual signals. Select the correct infrared code sets in the database for the devices you want to control, to enable control of virtually every audio/video system element on the market today – regardless of model or brand.

Easy-to-read 1.4" color LCD display
A 1.4" (96 x 67 pixel) color LCD display is foreseen to provide easy readibility of the content on the screen.

Activities to control multiple devices with one button press
Instead of operating your components one by one, activity based control blends the most commonly used functions into activities such as "Watch a movie" or "Listen to CD". When a user selects 'watch a movie', rather than having the end user address each individual piece of equipment - such as DVD player, TV and multimedia receiver -, one button holds all necessary commands to be able to start watching a movie: switch on the TV, switch on the amplifier and select the right input, switch on the the DVD player and start playing.

Rotary cursor control for fast menu navigation
A cursor incorporating a rotary wheel enables you to navigate through the setup menu and the device pages, in both clockwise and counter-clockwise directions.

LCD screen with backlighting for convenience in the dark
Backlighting is a feature that illuminates the LCD screen or keypad for use in the dark. The two most common types of backlighting include LED and electroluminescent (EL). Remotes backlit with LEDs are typically bright but uneven with a yellow or green color, while EL panels are smooth with blue, white or green shades.

No manual needed for set up
Unlike other universal remote controls, where a 3-digit code needs to be input to identify a brand and device, this remote incorporates on-device step-by-step instructions to setup your equipment, regardless of brand.

Convenient IR learning from another remote
Learning functionality refers to the process through which a remote control captures and stores infrared signals from other remotes for later use. When device codes are not included in the on-board database, they can always be learned from the original remote, simply by pointing to it.

Easily add and label extra functionality
Improved way of adding and labeling functions makes it easier and faster to add extra functionality. So, no more missing functions.
