Happy Black Friday, everyone! So far I'm not seeing a huge number of remote control deals online... however, here's a few to consider:
Amazon.com has a Lightning Deal on the URC R6 remote control coming up at 5:29 AM PST - that's 8:29 AM EST. Currently it's $13.84, and on the deal it will be... less. You can find the countdown link on this page. If you want something with a little more kick that's not a Harmony, try the latest URC R40 for $113.18.
Amazon also has the Logitech Harmony One for $131.50 (better than last year's sale), and the latest Harmony Touch model for under $225. You can also find the new TouchSquid 7" universal remote tablet for $239.99, which is a fair bit better than the normal price of $299.99.
At RadioShack.com: the Logitech Harmony 600 for $29.99.
At BestBuy.com: the Logitech Harmony 650 for $39.99. Read more...

Happy Friday, everyone!
Today I’m looking to buy a Memorex CP8 Turbo universal remote control, which came out in the early 1990s. There are a few specific requirements, but there’s also a worthwhile cash reward!
If you have one of these and are willing to sell it, please contact me for further details. Read more...

Okay, so we first heard about the Total Control TKP-7000 In-Wall Touchscreen
a year ago at CEDIA 2011
... but that doesn’t make it any less impressive now! With a 7” 1024x600 high-resolution screen, the TKP-7000 looks stunning no matter what wall it’s on. And with a wired Ethernet connection supporting PoE, it’s easy to install, too!

handheld remote controls feature sleek, ergonomic designs, and mesh with the MRX-20
Advanced Network System Controller – offering a point-and-click-style motion-based control over a snazzy graphical on-screen interface that URC have dubbed “uMotion”.
