If you’re like me, you use your Xbox 360 to watch Netflix and other movies. It’s relatively painless, but the controller doesn’t exactly make the best remote for watching tv. Enter the X-Link, a universal remote control designed to work with the Xbox 360, as well as hundreds of other devices (since it is a universal remote control after all).
The X-Link uses your typical IR style control, for both the Xbox and any other device you happen to program into it. X-Link is designed as a learning remote, with dedicated buttons for Y, X, A, B, as well as Start, Back, and and other controls for the DVD and other features. The X-Link supports over 400 brands of televisions, 200 Satellite receivers, 100 cable receivers, 50 DVR’s, and 200 home theater surround sound systems.
The X-Link is available now from most retail outlets, for an MSRP of $29.95.
