If your looking for a universal remote that is easy to setup, and that you don't need to be a rocket scientist to use, look no further. The Logitech Harmony 659 Advanced Universal remote can do it all.
Unlike universal remotes of the past that take hours to set up and program the Harmony 659 connects to your Tablet PC (or any other computer) with an included USB cable and is set up over the internet.
I started with a list of the make and model numbers of the devices I wanted to control with the Logitech Harmony 659 Universal remote and It took less than 30 minutes from the time I connected the remote to the computer to enter the information for my devices and set up the activities associated with them.
When I began set up I was prepared from not being able to control some of my older Carver tube equipment but much to my surprise every piece of equipment i entered was found and set up with out a problem.
Another nice feature of the Logitech Harmony remotes is that one you have one configured, if you decide to upgrade to another Logitech remote the online configuration setting are saved so you don't have to enter everything from scratch.
