Nothing's more annoying than losing the remote control between the couch cushions. Universal Electronics' new 8-in-1 Kameleon remote features a remote finder, which helps you locate a misplaced remote control. The device can control up to eight electronic devices and will illuminate the buttons necessary for operating a specific component. DVR lovers will enjoy the commercial-skip button, which lets you fast-forward through commercials. Commercial mute allows you to maintain a desired volume level between commercials and shows. The 8-in-1 Kameleon is available now at RadioShack for $80.

DVD: Field of Dreams Two-Disc Anniversary Edition—Universal
Video: 4
Audio: 4
Extras: 4
In one of those creative masterstrokes that elude most of us, the resurrection of Shoeless Joe Jackson is used as a foil to re-examine the American experience of the 20th century, first in the book and later in the movie Field of Dreams, wherein ex-hippie/farmer Ray Kinsella (Kevin Costner) risks everything by plowing under his crop to give Jackson and others a place to play.

Remember that commercial when plasma TVs first came out, with that couple randomly placing their new plasma set on different walls around their apartment until they finally settled on a ceiling mount? That ad always bugged me because they made it look so easy to just decide where you wanted your TV to go and then put it there. What about the power? What about the cable hookup?

Turning DVDs with Pioneer's DVR-810H is so simple my dog could do it (true, he is a German shepherd). That's because the deck is also a TiVo hard-disk recorder, and it restricts any DVD burning to dubbing what's already on the hard drive. In other words, it doesn't give you the flexibility of a standalone DVD recorder, but it's ridiculously easy to use.

Thomas J. Norton reviews the <A HREF="/speakersystems/504atlantic">Atlantic Technology System 6200 surround speaker system </A> noting, "Along with the more expensive System 8200, the System 6200 is a significant departure for Atlantic. Not only are both systems more expensive than their previous flagship, the System 450, they're far larger and more complex."
