Advertisements I love my Tivo remote. It's built like a tank, the buttons never wear out, and it's been used thousands of times. Since there is probably no way that it can be used to control a pc, are there any good remotes that can be used for a pc? I have tried the smart phone apps, and I don't like them. There must be a pc remote that is as good as the Tivo. I would like create a Tivo-like experience with a flat screen and a pc.
