What the hey? I got a new Sony XBR 4 and the remote will not work with a Sony PS3. This is strange as the XBR 4 remote has the PS3 style controls.

Is it a bluetooth remote? I'm surprised more manufacturers aren't doing this.

Thats because it's a IR remote and not BT. I doubt you see BT in home A/V equipment anytime soon. It's slow going even with regular RF, nevermind BT with it's Pairing.

Having the same style on screen interface doesn't mean they use the same technology in their remote controls.

The PS3 does not have any sort of IR receiver built in, so it's not going to work with any IR remote. If you want IR control of the PS3, check this thread. The PS3IRX1 USB dongle works with Sony PS2 and DVD player IR codes, so it will probably work pretty well with the XBR4 remote.

Yeah, my Harmony Remote controls the PS3 via the USB dongle.
