When you’ve set up an activity for your devices you then get a more useful graphical display of control buttons on the iPhone screen, which means that you can just tap the ‘Power’ or ‘Volume’ buttons, as required. Thinkflood also told me that they’re planning to add electronic programme guides for Sky, Virgin and Freeview, which should be available in an update for the app this month.

Verdict

Once you’ve worked through the initial set-up process the RedEye Dock does work very well and will appeal to home cinema buffs who are looking for a powerful, programmable universal remote control. The £204 price tag seems a bit steep, though, especially as Thinkflood are currently advertising it for $188 in the US (about £140 inc.VAT) and you could certainly find less expensive remote controls if you don’t mind giving up the capabilities of the RedEye’s web and Wi-Fi reach. ®
