harmon/kardon wants you to Take Control of your home theater setup with their programmable "activity-based" remote. With one press of a button your remote changes to the optimal configuration you've set up for a particular activity. An activity can be something like "Watch TV", "Listen to a CD", or "Watch a movie". This remote features a 2.5" 128x160 color LCD screen, a charging cradle, and USB connectivity so that you can customize your TC 30 to your exact needs. This is an IR (infra-red) remote with a range of up to 10m (32'), claims to have a 220 min. battery life, and has a learning feature to "steal" your functions of all your (now obsolete) remotes.
