Manufacturers are coming to the rescue with new technologies that make A/V control perhaps a little less intimidating.

We've rounded up some of the latest innovations, including: Omnio's self-powering RF remote, URC's MX-5000, EZ Power's wind-up remote, the motion-sensitive Remotion, Hillcrest Labs' Loop Pointer and voice-controllable remotes.
