Thread: Universal remotes
March 2nd, 2011, 09:38 AM #1
Ok looking for some advice and perhaps some first hand reviews.
I just finished (well nearly finished) remodeling my basement. There is a 7 seat movie theater, bar and an extra room (kids toy room for now). I am looking to get a remote that could control all these areas. Here is the hardware set up:
- Projector (Mitsubishi 6800)
- Onkyo Three zone 7.2 / 5.1 / 2
- Sony Blueray
- Techniques CD changer
- Comcast cable
- 42 inch LG screen
- sound from Onkyo system
- Comcast cable (this may not be an independent signal)
- Will have some sort of TV and a DVD player.
- Techniques 5.1 surround system.
- potentially comcast cable.
I have been looking and my question falls to Radio vs. IR? not sure Radio would work or worth it. Would be nice to not have to point the remote into each component and room. also I hope to set up an outside speakers supported by the Onkyo system. Would this be possible or even fesible?
The Logitech harmony 1100 looks nice but pricey and would still need to buy the radio to IR converter. Might need more than one of the converters? the Logitech
The logitech harmony one also looks good.
Any other brands These i found off of Best Buy or thoughts?
ThanksYou know dog spelled backwards is god.....
coincidence ..... i think not.

The Logitech Harmony remotes are hands down the best out there, you're just going to have to be willing to drop down for them as they're all quite pricey.Cute

There are two kinds of universal remotes, the ones that don't work and the ones that are too expensive.
