    Star Trek TOS Phaser Remote

    Brad here. As a bit of a "Trekkie", I find this quite interesting. Now I don't know if it will interact with my AVR or Blu-ray player but it looks like fun. (Though at $150+, I'd probably put that $$ toward a Harmony Elite).

    Control 4 remote systems, anyone have one?

    I'm expecting that whatever HT installer I go with, they're going to try to sell me on a Control 4 remote system. The little I've seen of Control 4, at stores, online, and at neighbors, it seems like overkill. And for double the price it looks less well designed than the Logitech Harmony Elite...
