As we get more devices to make our lives easier, we are subjected to more and more controllers to make them work. Thankfully, we are also provided with solutions to consolidate. Flirc USB is a small USB drive that allows you combine multiple devices in a single remote.
Most people do this with the remotes that come with your cable. The box, the TV, and maybe a DVD player can all be put on one remote. Increasingly people are forgoing cable and watching shows with FireTV and the like. Flirc lets you sync your remote up to these things. Currently it works with FireTV, Xbox 360, Windows Media Center, and Kodi.
Flirc is easy to set up but you do need a USB port to connect it. Once you’ve connected it will walk you through the set up and you can get started using it right away. You can use a universal remote or even your TV remote to program Flirc. It is meant to be used with more than one device so that you can bring all of your media under one simple control. The Flirc USB is $22.95.
