Cool, I think Logitech makes some pretty good stuff like keyboards and mice and other things like that remote too. I've seen that and that $400 one at BestBuy before, it looked pretty cool/useful if you have enough stuff to justify spending that much for a remote. What kind of stuff you controling with that remote?

"When I was your age, we didn't have remotes. We had to turn the channel ourselves, by walking to the tv, up hill both directions, through 3 feet of snow!" So, I had kids so they could change it for me!

I see Walmart has a $100 version (520). I'll be stopping by there and picking one of those up tomorrow.
