The capabilities of receiver remotes can vary a lot from brand to brand, and even from model to model: Audio/video remotes can operate several audio/video components from the same manufacturer. Multibrand remotes (also called "universal" remotes) have pre-programmed codes for popular brands of gear. Learning remotes (also called "programmable" remotes) can be programmed to carry out specific commands from your other remotes. Some remotes have RF capability that lets you control your receiver from other rooms in your house — these are especially useful for use with dual-room/dual-source receivers. Another useful feature of some remotes is an LCD screen that aids in the navigation of system controls. A few of the most sophisticated remotes incorporate an LCD touchscreen that puts even greater system control at your fingertips via customizable control screens.
