To get this kind of form factor in the past, you’d need to shell out mega bucks for a Crestron or PHAST controller/automation system. Universal Remote’s MX-3000 has taken that popular form factor and turned it into an IR/RF remote. This is like the MX-600 but has a 3.8″ color LCD screen and is loaded with features like a sound recorder, so you can add talking help buttons for the less techy family members. They really thought this remote thru, a common problem with LCD remotes is the lack of hard buttons, they have a bunch of them on the MX-3000, these can be programmed for common tasks and accessed with a quick button press. Customization can made with their free editor software, making each task as intuitive as you’d like. The Home Theater Master® MX-3000 retails for $999.95.
