No manual needed for setup
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 for setting up 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.
Control up to 7 devices out of a choice of 10
The 7-in-1 universal remote control allows you to programme and operate up to 7 audio/video devices from almost any brand. The remote contains the IR codes of all kinds of home entertainment devices of almost any brand. With this single remote you can replace your collection of remote controls with one single controller.
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 DVD player and start playing.
Extensive infrared code database for most devices and 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.
Navigate your music files without using your TV/monitor
On-screen media selection is the ability to view and select a list of songs, pictures and movies from your PC on the LCD screen of a remote control. The 2-way RF communication incorporated in the remote and the USB dongle provided with it ensures the content of the PC is transmitted to the remote. So, no need to turn on your TV or monitor to view the menu and select your favourite files.
Operates through walls via radio frequency-based USB adapter
A USB adapter is an adapter that can be connected to your device's USB port to enable control of that device when in a cabinet or in another room. The USB adapter and the remote have a Radio-Frequency (RF) module incorporated. Over RF, the two communicate with each other. The commands of the remote will be executed through the USB adapter and the content of the Media Centre PC will be visible on the remote's LCD screen via the USB adapter.
Compatible with Media Centre Edition, WMP10-11, iTunes 6-7
To ensure you can play your favourite files, whether it be Microsoft Media Centre Editions (XP or Vista), WMP10-11 or iTunes 6-7, all these formats are supported to be visible on the LCD screen of the remote and can be controlled by the remote.
Direct access key to control Microsoft Media Centre PC
A dedicated Microsoft Media Centre green button is included on the remote that gives access to the dedicated Microsoft Media Centre PC menu.
