    Hello -

    I'm looking recommendations for a universal remote control for all of my AV components. I've seen a couple that connect to a PC and was wondering if there was one out there that would connect to my imac.

    Any advice is appreciated.

    I have a logitech harmony and it works great but takes a while to set up. you can even program it to access front row with no problems.

    Second the Harmony. I've had an 880 for years, and it's the remote that finally stopped me searching for a better remote. It configures fine from a Mac, and you can control darn near anything from it.

    Another vote for the Harmony. Even controls my Apple TV. The Mac software is actually faster than the Windows Version. Works Great!

    The harmony's are the best remotes out there. I have the xbox 360 one and I can't imagine doing anything A/V without it.
