Universal Remote Control Introduces Total Control Remote for Five -Component Entertainment Systems

Quick, Easy, Affordable FX1 Handheld Adds Convenient New Option to Broad Line-up of Multi-Product Remotes

CES '07, LAS VEGAS, Jan. 8, 2007 - Universal Remote Control, Inc., the leader in remote control design and manufacturing for home and professional entertainment systems, introduces the Total Control FX1 remote control at the 2007 International Consumer Electronics Show, beginning here today.


The FX1 includes all the essentials needed to easily operate a home entertainment system. It controls up to five audio/video components, including TVs, DVD players, VCRs, satellite receivers, music servers and cable set -top boxes as well as lighting controls and more. It's quick and easy to set up, and even easier to operate. It comes packed with a database of thousands of pre -programmed codes that guarantees the FX1 will control hundreds of components.

It also includes two new Universal Remote Control functions - MacroPower™ and SimpleSound™. MacroPower lets users turn several A/V components on or off at the same time, and uses special command, or macro, keys to switch sources and inputs with the press of a single button. SimpleSound provides users with total and convenient 'one -touch' control over the volume functions on all their components, including devices - such as TiVo, DVD players and VCRs - that do not have built -in volume controls.

Additional features include 44 strategically located soft -touch control buttons, device buttons that light up for easy viewing in dark environments, and an ergonomic design shaped and balanced for comfort and easy one -hand operation.

The FX1 is available now from authorized URC dealers at a suggested price of $19.95. It can be seen with URC's other outstanding products in Booth 21244, South Hall 1, Las Vegas Convention Center, during the show.
