Philips RC9800i Touchscreen Remote Control Review
In this day and age, a $5 remote just doesn't cut it anymore. Heck, it probably won't be too long till the remote can watch the TV for us. Until then, if you want one heck of a remote, you'll want to check out the Philips RC9800i Touchscreen Remote. Robert over at HomeTheater.About.com has a nice review that states:
The Philips RC9800i is an infrared wireless remote controller that is 5-inches wide, 4-inches high, with a 3.5-inch color LCD touch screen and a series control buttons.
The RC9800i features 32MB of internal memory and an internal database with remote control codes for over 1,100 brands of audio and video components. The database can be expanded through software upgrades via the RC9800i's USB interface, in conjunction with a PC.
In addition to its larage database capacity, the RC9800i can also learn remote control commands by interfacing with original remote controls.
The RC9800 is also compatible with audio/video home networking control functions via Wi-Fi connectivity.
The RC9800i can control components individually or by group activity.
The RC9800i also offers Electronic Program Guide (EPG) interface capability.
This is a pretty sweet remote, just ignore the fact that it costs as much a 77 Chevy Nova with a serious oil leak.
