    Anthony discussed his universal remote. Opie talked about his universal desk top. How many remotes do you have?

    I have 7: Cable, TV, DVD, VCR, Stereo, XM, Air Conditioner

    Here's my question. Do the new universal remotes actually access the menu functions the other remotes did? The old universal remotes for some reason never accessed some sort of menu or timer function which made them useless.

    My father has the very same remote Danny bought Ant and it really does fucking rule. He only has it for one room so I haven't seen its full capacity.

    Logitech Harmony Remote for Xbox 360. I bought it on Ebay for $70. It works my XM unit, LCD tv, Xbox, Denon Receiver, and cd changer. It is awesome and I can update the settings via USB cable. Great toy.

    Ha Ha, you suck at math! Or remembering!

    I'm definitely over 10, but I've had the Sony RM-AV2100/2000 for almost ten years now and love it.

    Sure it's big and bulky, but I never lose it. It controls just about everything in my house including X10 modules for lights, dimmers, or whatever. It cost about $200 originally, but it's been worth every penny.

    The original took so much abuse, I couldn't believe it. Once I tried to throw it on the couch and missed and cracked the LCD screen but it still worked. Last year, I came across one on Ebay for $30 so I bought it, lined the two of them up, and all settings were transferred to the new one. Pretty nifty technology for 1998.

    I counted at least 8.

    Could be a few more than that, Jim.

    Yes. This one does anyway. You can program it any way you'd like. Every single button on the remote is fully programmable. All the remote fuctions are downloaded to the remote via logitechs Harmony website. In the event that there's a fucntion that's NOT on the database, you can "teach" the remote how to perform said function via IR.

    I think Amazon has a pretty good deal on Harmony 880's right now.

    Just one...

    http://www.remotecentral.com/ureview/41-23.htm

    It will control absolutely _everything_ and it is 100% configurable (from menu names to automated multiple-button scripting...).

    And mine controls 12 separate things in our "home theater" room (TV, two DirecTiVo's, Receiver, XM, DVD, VCR, CD, thermostat, fireplace, ceiling fan, and the blinds). I can't call it a true home theater room b/c it also serves as the kids playroom as well....

    I remember these things. They worked great for the time.. bit of a pain to program I think (compared to the logitech now) but still awesome.

    Edit: I need to change that to 9:

    3: TV
    1: VCR
    1: DVD
    1: Cable box
    2: stero
    1: ceiling fan
