Philips 6-Device Universal Remote for iPod

product website

this is pretty tempting.

Wow never knew someone would even think about inventing this… awesome concept though!!

Does it work with the iPhone?

How easy is navigation from song to song, or switching to another playlist?

It will, but it gives you the airplane mode dialog box on the iPhone. I’ve had no problems with mine, though. YMMV.

What does this mean?

Is this the same box that you can just press “Close” so that airplane mode will not be on?

Also, which iPhone do you have?

I bought one of these simply for the fact that it has an RF remote. It does not have to be line-of-sight like IR remotes do. This way I can connect my ipod to my whole house audio system and control it from anywhere in the house

It does it charge the iPod/iPhone when on the dock right?

*Philips SJM3151 is compatible with the following iPod models:

■iPod Touch 8GB 16GB
■iPod Nano 3rd generation(video)4GB 8GB
■iPod Classic 80GB 160GB
■iPod Nano 2nd generation (aluminum) 2GB 4GB 8GB
■iPod 5th generation (video) 60GB 80GB
iPod Nano 5th generation (video)60GB 80GB*


The 5th gen Nano is 8GB or 16GB…

Will the remote control all my other IR devices by re-transmitting the radio signal via IR, or do I have to be line-of-sight for everything other than the iPod?

Does anyone know if this can be programmed into a Harmony Remote?

will this work for my Zune?

In for 1!

No, the RF is just between the iPod dock and the remote.

so, does this play audio through a tv? I don’t have external speakers right now, and i notice it includes a video cable, but will audio come out of the tv as well?


If you hook it up to the audio input on your tv you should be able to play it through your tv. The 3.5mm to RCA Audio/Video Cable it comes with is really all you need to do that.
