Update: Direct TV is gone, Netflix streaming and DVD by mail is in. We get a lot better choice of movies.
I have a $16 programmable remote that controls a TV, an HTPC (Music, Recorded TV, DVDs, Hulu, Media Monkey etc), A DIRECTV DVR with an Onkyo Home theater receiver and a 5.1 speaker system. I really want to do a voice recognition remote, but that’s another story.
I would buy a fancier remote, but, for me, they really don’t help much
