We have a B&O stereo from the 80s in our studio with 2 remotes, an earlier version of the one posted before, and a massive desktop one. They are the most cryptic things ever, I have no idea what anything but the function and volume buttons do. And the manuals are AWFUL. But the build quality of the stick remote makes up for that almost- cast metal body, you could knock someone out with it (would work better at that actually than as a remote), I love it as an object. It works with multiple generations of their equipment which is nice given the quality of the hardware.
I have a harmony for my HT setup in my living room, but it is a let down, and after recently switching to FIOS I want to lock whoever designed their remote and DVR interface in a closet with the cast of Jersey Shore. The FIOS iphone app shows a glimmer of being awesome, in a few generations it will be a great alternative.
