We love gear at the HT Guys and when a new remote comes out we have to take a look. Recently Logitech released the Harmony Touch - a remote that combines a touch screen with physical buttons. We’re not big fans of a totally touch screen remote so we were pretty excited to take a look at one that combines the best of both worlds.

There are many times when we ask our listeners for their opinions on topics we discus on the show. On last week’s show we asked you what you thoughts were on two subjects, How you would improve the Harmony Remote and would you pay $25 for day and date VOD titles. Since we received so many responses we thought we’d take a bit more time to share and discuss your emails as our main feature for today’s show.
We'll admit it, there are other companies that make remote controls. We decided to try one this week. The Prestigo 8008 is a cool remote with a color screen, but how does it stack up to the entry level Harmony 510? Excellent question.
And we had a chance this week to take a look at the CinemaTube from brite-View. It's a network media player that supports full 1080p/60 video and Dolby Digital and DTS audio, so it's right up our alley. After all, who wants to stream video if you can't get it in high def?
Not content with what the HT Guys have declared the best universal remote on the market, Logitech continues to put out new Harmony Universal Remotes. Of the two most recent models on the market, the Harmony 700 and the Harmony 900, we've had a chance to look at the 700. It is the less expensive of the two, and can be found in retail stores and online for an MSRP of $150 US (Buy Now).
