Keyspan ships color LCD remote for iTunes

updated 09:10 am EDT, Tue July 24, 2007

Keyspan TuneView iTunes

Keyspan has begun shipping a new version of the TuneView remote control. Rather than operate with iPods, as with the earlier model, the new one is designed to control the Mac and PC versions of iTunes from up to 150 feet away, via an included USB-to-RF transceiver. The highlight of both remotes is the color LCD screen, which lets users browse audio and video without having to play through each track. The interface further mimics the behavior of the iPod, for familiarity's sake. iTunes 7.1.1 or later is required, as is Mac OS X 10.3.9 or Windows XP/Vista. The iTunes TuneView costs $149.

    license the scrollwheel?

    The screen is nice, but the controls are pretty hinky. Licensing the scrollwheel would have been more l33t.

    TuneView Remote's Design

    Hi otiswild,

    Thanks for the comments.

    The scroll wheel is one idea but I think our button design is better suited for a remote control. Granted, if we were making an iPod or MP3 player, a scroll wheel makes sense.

    The TuneView remote gives you access to all of the features of scroll wheel with better selection precision in menus. Because it is button based, you actually 'feel' what what you are doing.

    In all of our demos, people come up and instantly start using the remote without any explanation of how to use it.

    Try the remote, I think you'll like it!
