VIZIO, the brand best known for their economical LCD televisions, is branching out their product lineup into various other arenas including speakers, headphones, wall mounts and even “electronic cleaning foam”. But of interest to us today is the company’s new pair of universal remote controls – and one of them is a color touchscreen.

Although details are still sketchy, we can tell you that the XTR100 sports a 3.5” LCD touchscreen display and can communicate directly with VIZIO’s special Via-enabled televisions utilizing RF-based Bluetooth (much like the PS3). It’s also compatible with regular infrared-based home theater devices, supports macros, is backlit with a motion pickup sensor, and has a rechargeable lithium ion battery and docking station. No word yet on pricing or availability.

The second – and as yet unphotographed – new remote is called the VUR9M, and would appear to be a basic hard buttoned model. It’s capable of controlling 4 devices, features a preprogrammed code library, IR code learning, plus backlit volume and number buttons. It will be available this coming March at an undisclosed price.

I wonder is the Vizio remote going to control DirecTV boxes?
Do you mean via RF? I doubt it - the RF in here is Bluetooth specific to Vizio products, which is completely different than DirecTV.
Seems like back and mute are reversed in the image. Looks really good though.
