Keyspan Ships TuneView Remote for iTunes
Tuesday, July 24, 2007
Posted by: Brian

Keyspan today announced TuneView, a wireless remote control that manages iTunes on a PC or Mac. It features a color LCD screen and familiar iPod-like menus that help users easily browse and control iTunes music, videos, radio and podcasts from up to 150 feet away. TuneView also works with Apple's AirPort Express, Xitel's Hi-Fi Link and other products that connect audio output from a PC-based music server to the audio inputs on an AV receiver or multi-room audio system. TuneView features include:

- Color LCD screen and 10-button keypad
- TuneView USB transceiver plugs into USB port on a PC or Mac
- 2.4 Ghz RF connectivity between remote and transceiver
- RF signal works through walls and furniture up to 150 ft range
- iTunes content presented on the remote in familiar iPod-like menu style
- Controls iTunes music, videos, radio and podcasts
- Supports English, French, German and Spanish

TuneView is shipping now with a suggested retail price of $149.

That's very nice, It would be great for a headless Mac Mini thats being used as a CD player. Shame about the price though.

I wouldn't mind having one, but I agree with JamesE on the pricing. It's too expensive. I would also like to see some Apple TV compatibility, even though it's probably not possible. I'm sort of growing tired of the Apple remote.

Buy a remote to control ONLY iTunes or buy a 19" widescreen display for around $150?

Hmm, I tend to agree. If it were programmable maybe so that it could control the rest of your equipment with IR or such. But I like the idea of sending back iTunes info to the remote.

My Mini media center is in our living room which is attached to the kitchen. Many times, my wife and I will be working in the kitchen and listening to iTunes with an internet radio station playing. A song will come on but we'll have to go to the living room to see what's playing. This remote could solve that.
