Philips Announces a New Universal Remote: The Prestigo STR9320

Philips Announces a New Universal Remote: The Prestigo

As a guest of Philips at their digital media event in Portugal this week, I was fortunate to feast my eyes on so many great new products — one of which includes an impressive new universal remote control. Stay tuned for the full review when I take it for a test drive, but for now I wanted to be sure to pass along some of its awesome features. Named the Prestigo STR9320, this glossy black remote puts other all-in-one remotes to shame.

The 2.8-inch touch-sensitive color screen is impressive in and of itself, but what I was really swooning over was its ability to program 20 devices. At first I thought, yeah, like it's going to be compatible with my stereo and DVR player, but the Prestigo is compatible with over 300,000 devices (with 10,000 more available online that can be downloaded via USB). I was also told that setup is fairly simple (unlike the headache other universal remotes usually are), and you can even create a "favorite channel list" so you don't have to remember that MTV is on channel 302, or that your movie channel is 707 (that is, if you use a cable box like me that has upwards of 500 channels), and of course, that makes this feature great for kids.

And you know how you're usually fumbling for batteries when your remote dies? The SRT9320 comes with rechargeable batteries and a main charger adapter, so you can kiss your battery woes good-bye! The Prestigo will be hitting stores by the end of March.

Tempting, but I really only use two remotes at this point. One for the U-Verse box/TV and one for the DVD player.

That's a serious remote. A charger?! That's a great idea, but...

Does it support Bluetooth, to power my PS3 on/off? :)
