My "universal" remote talks to the "smart hub" that talks to the actual devices. There is an app that can talk to the "smart hub" if you can't find the remote (or just prefer the app)


can it page the remote? *raises eyebrow* - one of the reasons I've never bought into these things is so many lack a page feature. You'd think for what you'd spend they'd put some thought into that. That's also one of the reasons i like a phone. It makes noise. It can bark or whistle at you.

True but some of my AV devices are over 10 years old...


That's a side rant of mine. DLNA was released in the 1990s.

Devices are just now supporting it over the past decade. 15-20 years is just too long of a turnaround time for tech. Meh.
When I was growin' up, I was the smartest kid I knew. Maybe that was just because I didn't know that many kids. All I know is now I feel the opposite.
