With the arrival of digital TV and high-def sources bringing more products – and more remote controls – into the home, Philips is aiming to make controlling your home entertainment system simpler with its new SRU8008 universal remote.

It can control up to eight devices from a choice of 26 different categories, and covers products from most of the main consumer electronics manufacturers.

There's an advanced on-screen set-up wizard with simple instructions which remove the need to program the device with a PC.

The SRU8008 features a 1.4in, 96 x 67 resolution full-colour screen, a rotary control and white backlighting for easier navigation.

Macros can be programmed into the device to carry outt multiple commands at the press of a single button via the Activities keys.

Part of the Philips Prestigo range, the SRU8008 costs £59. And if you have more than eight devices in your system, the SRU8015 model (£99) can control up to 15 home entertainment devices, which should be more than enough for even the most hardened AV enthusiast.

Thought the idea of HDMI connectors was that they carried data as well as digital sound and vision. ie only one remote could be required.

Will we be seeing a review of this, I interested in getting universal remote but knowledge of that area is bit poor
