New Product: URC Medius TX-1000 Universal Remote Control
PACK LEADER Up to 40 components will pledge themselves to Universal Remote Control's Medius TX-1000, probably out of respect for the capable touchscreen controller. Once it's configured (a custom installer is recommended), the LCD will display only the keys you need for specific activities: press "Watch TV," and you won't be bothered with stuff like "Next Chapter."
A HAPPY MEDIUS Some stingy power-management tech ensures the Medius goes easy on its batteries. And since there's no charger, the remote stays on the coffee table (or wherever you plan on misplacing it). $499 universalremote.com 914-835-4484
