Has anyone else tried this thing yet??

http://www.amazon.com/Blu-Wave-Remote-for-PS3/dp/B000R5H7KE/

I’m going to order this thing and give it a try. It looks to be a more attractive IR solution than the PS2 work around. I hope my MX 850 can learn its codes. About the only thing I don't like about the PS3 for Blue Ray is the dam remote.

Mike, that looks very promising, I'll be very interested to see if it works, I would order one myself now if we weren't leaving for vacation in a couple days.

We're coming your way Sunday, a 7 day AK cruise on the NCS Pearl, then 5 days in Seattle with friends before flying home. I've been doing the weather watch in Alaska for the last couple weeks, looks like we'll get some rain over there next week. We are really looking forward to the trip.
Napa in October should be a great trip, if you have the time I would highly recommend the wine train, a great way to sample many of the vinyards. We are looking to head back over there again either during Thanksgiving or for Christmas.

We'll call him VacationDad from now on .

But seriously, HomeDad is one of my top ten role models. HomeDad, you should write a book. Or even better have your own TV show.

Happy Birthday, aging vacationdad….

I’ll look into the wine train. I’m going with friends that hit Napa every year and mentioned it to them. They just rolled their eyes and called me a tourist. I’ll still go though….

I ordered the remote gadget yesterday. I won’t get it for a couple weeks though.

Lol, Napa itself is probably one of the premier tourist attractions in the world for wine lovers. One of my favorite things about the place is drinking and chatting with folks from all over the globe.

Just saw that today on engadget. Thanks for the Amazon rec, good price. I think I'll give it a try since it's cheap. Then I can program my Harmony and finally be able to use that $800 doorstop for something useful...
