If you are looking a way to take charge of all your home theater components, check out the new Harmony Touch from Logitech. Taking a cue from iOS and Android phones and tablets, the Harmony touch replaces most of the buttons provided on typical universal remote controls, with a 2.4-inch color swipe-and-touch screen that serves as an interface for activity-based control functions, room for up 50 customizable channel icons, and a direct number access keypad.

In addition to the swipe-and-touch screen, the Harmony Touch incorporates a sleek ergonomic design, backlighting for the buttons that are included, rechargeable battery with charging station, easy online setup (USB cable provided for connection to PC) and remote code updating (database access for up to 225,000 devices from 5,000 brands), and simultaneous control for up to 15 devices.

Also, if you have a Logitech TV Cam HD, you can use the Harmony Touch to control its Skype access and control functions.

The Harmony Touch carries a suggested price of $249.99.

Logitech has a long, established reputation for making remotes that are hard to program, hard to use in low light and poor support as well
as being grossly overpriced. i have one and its been one big
pain.

I’ve programmed a hundred Logitech Harmony remotes for customers, and they are, hands down, the best, most user friendly remote ever if you know what you’re doing when you program them. I genuinely hope someone buys the rights and keeps them on the same track. Only thing I agree with the other poster on, is they are a bit on the expensive side.
