Remote to control xbox and ps3

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Is there a universal remote that can control a xbox and ps3? instead of using the controller or a ps3 or xbox DVD remote. My ultimate goal is to have my tv, uverse box, xbox, and ps3 to be controlled by one remote while laying in bed.

Depends on how much you want to spend
I used the Harmony ONE remote but you'll need a bluetooth adapter for the PS3

Do you like the harmony one? I was looking at that or a 1000, or 1100 on eBay.

You could also consider the older models, slightly cheaper, and work very well.

My buddy actually has both the Harmony ONE and the Harmony 1100. Personally I like the 1100 better, but they both essentially have the same functionality, the ONE is just still in the typical remote shape.

His 1100 controls everything in his theater room (projector, receiver, blu-ray player, xbox 360) and everything in his bedroom (tv, cable box, 360.) He alsso has it setup for the living room stuff, (tv, reciever, tivo, blu-ray player). His dad uses the Harmony ONE to control (tv, cablebox/dvr, roku player, blu-ray player).

You can also set up the 1100 to control any object that uses an IR/RF signal I think, or maybe it's just one of those, so it can control tons of stuff.

Either way, for the PS3 it still requires a bluetooth dongle (yay sony! lol).

Nice thing is, the OSD on the 110 for the xbox actually shows the four face buttons like you see them on the controller, kinda cool tbh.
