Unversal Marmitek Digital TV

Marmitek's Digital TV pairs up a transmitter and a receiver that connects to a set top box and a TV. Video, audio and IR commands are sent wirelessly from your remote. With the £149 (~$232.00) system you can reroute to a second TV anywhere in your home singals sent from decoder. And of course your DVR and any VOD channels are still accessible.

Freakin' Friday! SmartControl Remote


In what we like to call the Rocky Horror Remote, the company One For All has found a way to skip through the commercials with a flick to the right or head to a combination of left and back for channel selection or rewind. Up and down will get you play and the opposite results in pause. A double tap gives you mute. The SmartControl Motion remote works with Freeview+ or Sky+ and can handle up to six different devices such as HDTVs, iPod docks, theater systems or game consoles. There are white backlit keys including some that are dedicated and a handy turn-off by holding the power button down a few seconds or turning the remote over. Pre-order for a Nov. 7 release.

Let's do the Time Warp again...

Freakin' Friday! My Favorite Remote


URC has released a new and improved inexpensive remote for those who tire of using/losing multiple controls. My Favorite Remote has a bright display, has easy setup (no PC) and can learn from other remotes. Choose up to 18 components with single button macros and 48 preset channels. The R40 remote comes with four AA batteries with a life of 18 hours and warns you if power is low and, should you accidentally have it on too long, has Sofa Mode to shut it down. The only thing missing here seems to be a lost "clap-on" alert.

Netflix to Offer Dedicated Remote Button


Netflix is going one step further to make it easier for everyone to come on board. Companies such as Panasonic, Samsung, Sony and Toshiba will be adding a dedicated button on their remotes. This feature will be included on many Internet connected TV and Blu-ray disc player remotes, with about 250 of them already Netflix ready. While this idea is fine its implication it also seems that the company may eventually become an international player, don't you think?
