That’s a bonus, the main business is home theatre and it can control all of that kit, including TV, DVD, Sat cable, freeview and amplifier. It’s also programmable, so you can use a ‘one button’ function to switch off your stereo, turn on your DVD, boost your surround sound or dim the lights when the movie starts.
