After looking through all the forums and researching the products available, I believe the remote makers out there have failed in making a universal remote that will fit the following requirements:
Include a track ball, pad or gyro that would allow mouse manipulation on HTPC
Universal remote ability that would control my blu ray player, TV and avr (learning function or software to set buttons as needed)
Control components behind wall (I have a NextGen RF extender
that I can use to control AVR and BR that are located out of line of sight, just need to make sure remote takes AA or AAA batts to work with extender)
I have given up on this, but ideally the manipuation device (trackpad, trackball, etc) would also work to control the menus on my LG47LM6700
From what I have seen, I can get a MCE remote with track ability, I can obviously get a Universal AA or AAA powered remote, but I can not find the combination. I have come as close as an MCE remote that can control up to 2 IR devices that is AAA batt powered, but no trackpad or ball, and no ability to control TV. The LG47LM6700 remote is an RF remote, so possible if i were to get an RF MCE remote it could add that TV control, but still can't find anything that would give me everything. The Gyration Motion Sense remote appeared to be the ideal candidate, but it looks like they pulled it off the market, most likely because of it's delicate gyros that kept breaking from drops.
Anybody out there in a similar situation, please let me know what you are doing to control things, or if I am wrong and this perfect remote does exist, please let me konw.
