Well, after trying a million multi remotes, the only one which works with all my home theatre stuff is the Sony Clie. And it's macros are brilliant - easily programmable. My favourite is the alarm clock function - turn on amp, wait for warm up, turn on speakers, turn on tv, change to kerrang channel and ramp up the volume.
Bliss.....wakes us, and the kids, up a treat
