My problem (with the Sony Playstation bluetooth remote) is that you can change things accidentally by sitting on it. Line of sight has it's advantages :-)

I agree with Phluph. I remember using an RF remote control for our TV back in the 70's, so the pendulum has once again gone back to RF being the leading candidate for remote controls.

Everything old is new again... I've enjoyed RF remotes ever since my first RCA DirecTV receiver I got in 1994. DTV still offers them and they're my 1st choice. Can't beat'em but yes bi-directional would be great. The new standard should go a long way it finally bring RF remotes back into the spotlight. Now if only CFL manufacturers would do more to stop EMI from them... Many put out so much EMI they jam many current RF remotes.
