    Apologies if this should be in a different forum, but my PWD7 is the dearest part of my set up so I'll start here.

    Recently acquired PWD7, Denon 2105, Pansonic E65. Have been a regular Sky+ user for some time now. The set up is great - the only problem now is the number of :censored: remote controls I'm using to turn everything on and off!

    Is there a simple way of integrating them all or do I need to look at these all in one jobbies? If the latter, anyone got any recommendations?

    Cheers :smashin:

    There is a whole forum dedicated to remotes on AVforums.com.

    but anyway i got similar issue to you, last count i had 9 remotes in my living room.

    bought Logitec Harmony 655 universal remote.

    it got usb connection to my pc.

    just punch in model numbers of all my kit and answer a few simple questions on screen and the whole remote is programmed and ready to use.

    It has activity buttons like "watch DVD" when i press this my plasma comes on and swithes to correct input, my DVD comes on, my Amp comes on and switches to correct input. Hell i even managed to get it to dim my lights to 20% ready to watch the flick.

    it cost £100.00 or so, but i would say it is the best investment i have made in years.

    :oops: Cheers Nachos, so there is, sorry. Any Mods out there, please move this thread if appropriate.
    Wow, sounds sexy. Looks like the credit card is going to take (yet another) bashing.
