Monster MCC AVL300-S Home Theater and Lighting Controller with Omnilink
This remote can be programmed for literally anything. It sends out both RF and IR signals, so it will work with any audio visual component that you have, whatever the make, model or product it controls. Most universal remotes cannot control absolutely anything, but this one can due to the clever technology that it uses. As well as controlling your audio visual equipment, this remote can control your lighting.
It takes a while to get your head around and setting it up is confusing, BUT when you do have it set up then it is a piece of cake to operate and incredibly clever. Rather than simply being a universal remote it is a command network. You may have a remote control upstairs in your bedroom that is linked to the device downstairs, you might have another family member who was downstairs watching the telly and they forgot to turn it off – well your remote control upstairs knows that the downstairs TV is still on and you can hit ‘system off’ and turn the TV off without going downstairs. The remote works through walls, cabinets, floors and ceilings. You don’t have to aim the remote control to operate it and the operating range is up to 130 feet.
The remote takes a lithium-ion battery, which can be charged on the table top charging station and you can still use it whilst it’s being charged, so you’ll never be without the remote or hunting for new batteries, when the power drains.
The layout of the buttons on this remote control are intuitive, the buttons are easy to read and feel firm to press. The remote has an ergonomic design and because of its illuminated backlit buttons it is easy to use in the dark.

Here is what current buyers think of the Monster MCC AVL300-S Home Theater and Lighting Controller with Omnilink:
This is the best remote that I have ever owned. I have tried many universal remotes/learning remotes, and this one blows them all away. It truly can perform any function the original remote can, plus it allows me to hide my components cause it goes through walls. It simplifies complicated functions. With the press of a single button it turns on DVD player, turns TV to right output, and turns AV Receiver to right output. Shipped on time and in great shape. I would buy from here again.

The AVL300-S is a great remote. Was very easy to program my old remotes to the 300-S.
Replaced five remotes with plenty of storage for more.Would recomend highly. Read Original Review
