Hello Daniel,

looks like Philips has finally "put its finger"
on the right technology combination...
...eventhough Sony had a similar concept implemented back in 1991 but somehow it did not hit the market!

I'd like to find out (like most of us) how easy it
is to configure the layout and programming of the
LCD screen and what (software/hardware) do you need to do so?


1) Is it easy to assign a new IR code to a virtual button?
2) Can you program time-based macro events like:
- turn on the TV
- wait 1 sec
- switch to channel 4
- etc.
3) What is the range of IR frequencies that can be learned (more specifically, can it learn a B&O code?)

Thanks for your time/answer(s) + for a great & useful website!!
