    It's a line of very fancy remotes made by Logitech:

    http://www.logitech.com/index.cfm/products/productlistharmony/US/EN,CRID=2080

    They have lots of presets to make it easier to control your whole setup; TV, cable/satellite, receiver, DVD, etc. It also has a USB port so you can download presets for your devices.

    They make a special remote for the XBox360, but I don't think there is a Wii one (at least not that I've seen.)

    The Harmony Remotes alow you to set it up via your PC or Mac to control you Home Theater with the Press of a button! If you want to watch a DVD you touch the tough screen area that says watch dvd and it turns on you dvd player, reciver, tv, vcr, ect, and puts them all to the right stttings!

    i would say no because the wii isn't a dvd player or a tv set or a stereo equitment setup so i would say no

    Well they already have the wii-mote is a bluetooth remote,n ps3 has a bluetooth remote but I dont think wii should need one since its primary controler is practically a remote that can do everything.

    I have a harmony and it won't work with the Wii. Works with everything else though. It doesn't really matter though since the wii remote can turn the system on anyways

    No, the Harmoney remote wont work with any Blutooth device! The new sony TVs are going to be Blutooth so that will suck, they better fix it! I am just wondering if they will come out with one for the Wii like they di the 360!

    I would expect the harmony series to have a bluetooth remote by the end of this year, as was stated, new Tv's are coming out with bluetooth remotes, so just to keep sales going logitech has to have one developed very soon or loose market presence.

    Damnit... I have 3 harmony remotes alredy and I don't want to have to buy new ones! Oh well... I guess I will only need to buy one new one cause my PS3 and wii will be in the same room and I don't plan on buying a new Tv for either of the outer 2 rooms...

    Get a Universal remote for everything else and use the wii-mote for the Wii its simple you see even if you could turn it on youd still have to swap ccontrolers to actually use the system fully.
