    I just got a Gioteck BD-01 media remote for PS3 from Play. It sends all the menu navigation and Bluray/DVD playback controls via IR to a receiver (which also doubles as a remote base charger) connected to the PS3 by USB. Works quite well but has one glaring feature left out. It doesn't allow you to power up/down the PS3! Consequently I cannot assimilate the PS3 fully into my Universal Learning Remote and operate the console soley from that. I still have to have the game controller on hand for that one button!

    Ideally I want one that sends the equivalent of the PS button on the regular controller by IR to the receiver which then sends the bluetooth PS button signal. Anyone know of such a beast?

    Just found out that the PS3 wakes up when you put a disc in the slot. Doh! So the power up/down issue is no longer a problem. :)
