Do you ever get a feeling you have too many remote controls in your living room? I got that today while stabbing my find at one of the remotes, only to find out what I was using the wrong one and I was really changing channel on the DVD recorder, while expecting the TV to be changing. It didn’t help that I was showing someone else how to use the remote! Well, the truth is that I only have 4 remotes in our living room:
There’s one for the TV, one for Sky, one for the PVR/DVD recorder and one for for the surround sound. Well, it would be more convenient if I had a single one that I could use for all my devices, something like the Yamaha neoHD. The great thing about this is that instead of having one remote with a million buttons, you have a simple remote with an on-screen selector that overlays on top of the channel you’re viewing, giving you full control of all your other devices.
You can find more information on their website (follow the link above) or look them up on Facebook. It’s not a cheap device, but if you really want one, you can also take part in the Yamaha neoHD Sweepstakes for your chance to win one of these devices and get yourself out of remote control hell. I’m certainly going to try and go for it.
What about you? Do you ever have to suffer through Remote Hell?
