The convenience remote controls offer soon dissolves into chaos as their number increases. A universal remote control removes all the extras, offering control from a single device.
While "multibrand" models allow for basic controls, learning remotes are more versatile. Programmable, they can work with virtually any brand of equipment. Those with flash memory remember programmes even when batteries die. Finally, models with screens provide additional information and control. A universal remote control simplifies using many multimedia devices.
