How many remote controls do you have sitting on your table? If your husband is a technology lover (like most are) you have at least 2. I never knew what remote did what or how to turn on the X Box for my son, or even how to turn on the dvd player for myself…I was just confused.
When my husband looked at me with his big brown puppy dog eyes and asked if he could get a new remote to go with his new TV, I rolled my eyes and said SURE. What else could I say? When he told me about all it could do, I was a bit interested.
The Harmony One
by Logitech has been WONDERFUL!!
It was a bit pricey, but we got it on Amazon for a lot less than in stores. It has a full color touchscreen, with icons and titles to all the components you have hooked up to your TV. It is so easy and convenient to us, and you have only ONE to look for!!! For example: Watch TV, Listen to Radio, Watch DVD, Listen to cd’s, Play Wii & Play XBOX 360. This remote can take the place of up to 15 remotes (CRAZY, huh?) It is so easy the kids can use it, and I am sure the babysitter would love it!
There are other remotes like this by Logitech, I am sure you could find the right one for you.
I recommend it to anyone…the programming can be a bit tricky, but if you know how to foolow directions and a bit computer savvy, I am sure you can do it.
