At CEDIA 2010 held next week in Atlanta, Georgia, URC will be making it clear why they no longer want to be known as “Universal Remote Control Inc.” While URC normally has a number of nifty new things at CEDIA to show off, this year the now more generically named tri-letter company will be introducing an impressively large slate of new products, including ones that definitely don’t qualify as universal remote controls.

With Universal Remote Control Inc. now marketing themselves simply as URC
(an abbreviation that all the cool kids have already been using for years), I've decided to modify our former "Universal Remote Control Inc." forum (intended solely for the company's consumer remotes) to "URC's Consumer Remotes
Hopefully this name change also help clarify the purpose of the forum, resulting in slightly fewer folks confusing it as a general forum for "all universal remote controls".
For all of URC's professional/CI remotes, we of course continue to host the "Complete Control by URC" forum.
