Universal Remote Control (yes that is both the name of the company and their product), released the FX1 today at CES. The FX1 controls up to five audio/video components, including TVs, DVD players, VCRs, satellite receivers, music servers and cable set-top boxes as well as lighting controls and more. It comes with a database of thousands of pre-programmed codes, so you don’t need to go back to school and get a programming degree. It also includes two new functions — MacroPower and SimpleSound. MacroPower lets you turn several A/V components on or off at the same time. SimpleSound provides you with ‘one-touch’ control over the volume functions on all their components, including on devices such as TiVo, DVD players and VCRs that do not have built-in volume controls.
There are 44 soft-touch buttons that light up for viewing in dark environments, and an ergonomic design. The FX1 is available now for $19.95.
