Review: i-Got-Control IRB1
Turn Your iPhone, iPod touch or iPad Into a Universal Learning Remote Control
Author: Jim Bask, Remote Shoppe


i-Got-Control IRB1 is an accessory that turns your iPhone, iPod touch or iPad into a universal learning remote control. i-Got-Control quickly and easily replaces the multiple remote controls that clutter your home. And, when you're on the go, i-Got-Control lets you operate A/V equipment in your hotel or conference room, as well as many other places that utilize IR equipment, in just three simple steps.

i-Got-Control IRB1 is an excellent remote control accessory for your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad and since it may be easily programmed in just three simple steps it's an excellent choice for anyone who plans on using it at home and on the road

When you connect the I Got Control IRB1 to your iPod, you are automatically prompted to install the accompanying i-Got-Control App - a free download from the Apple iTunes AppStore.

Once installed, the i-Got-Control App opens to a blank screen and prompts you to add a new device. You select your device from a list of thousands of pre-programmed devices by using a multi-step tumbler. The first simple step in programming the IRB1 is to use the first tumbler to select the type of device (Cable Box, DVD Player, TV, etc.) you would like to use.

Why would you turn an expensive device into a remote control when it still requires an adaptor just to use a PS3 despite being blue tooth enabled?

+1

I'm personally sick of all the proprietary wars with all these components which should work together, but don't. They are all guilty of it.

Example:

1. Pioneer hdmi control only works with Pioneer displays.
2. Media servers, don't even get me started.
3. HDMI handshake, so to keep a small few from recording illegally we will use a format that will keep legitimate people from using their rightfully purchased media in certain circumstances(ie. HDMI extenders).
4. Mircrosoft.......hehe we know where thats going.

Stepping down.

Yeah silly that it needs an extender for the PS3 but thats probably b/c Sony has some proprietary rights to the code or frequency etc......

This looks like it has a potential market for $70, but I saw the new low-end Harmony remote for only $40 at Target. Harmony's concept is so well refined, I would think the IRB1 would have to knock-your-socks-off to beat it.

No matter what the new low-end Harmony remote costs, it can't play music, send email or make phone calls. I think you have missed the point of what i-Got-Control does for the iOS user.
