The official marketing text of Tripp Lite ER-RF1 Remote for Front Row remote control Wired as supplied by the manufacturer

The RF Remote for Front Row is a sleek and powerful RF remote control designed specifically for use with Apple's Front Row multimedia software. It provides more range, convenience and flexibility than infrared remotes.


- The RF Remote for Front Row provides a range of 60 feet or more (about twice the distance of infrared remotes).
- Unlike an infrared remote, this RF remote does not require line of sight to the receiver. This allows you to manage Front Row from more areas within the room or even from other areas of your house.
- Since the RF signal works through walls and furniture, you have more flexibility in locating the Macintosh that will be used to run Front Row. For example, you can place a Mac mini inside an entertainment center cabinet or within an AV closet and still easily control Front Row with the remote.

If you are lucky enough to have a Front Row-enabled Mac, you’ll already have a remote control for it. So it is a little puzzling to see that Keyspan has released a third-party remote for Front Row. Keyspan’s remote control does have some advan...
Good Direct line of sight not necessary; extra functions.
Bad USB Dongle required; more expensive than the Apple remote.
Bottom line The Keyspan Front Row Control isn’t going to be for everybody. However for some it will breathe new life into pre-Front Row Macs, or add the ability to hide a Mac mini. But if you only want a couple of extra buttons on your remote, £30 is likely to...

You cant criticise Keyspan for failing to give its products explanatory names. Theres little room for doubt about the purpose of this white credit card-sized device.

If the Apple Remote frustrates you, try Keyspans RF Remote. The Apple Remote is truly a simple, elegant device, but its use of infrared can be frustrating, since infrared requires a line of sight between the remote and the receiver. The RF Remote f...
Good Wider range than Apple Remote. Line of sight not necessary.
Bad Slightly bigger than the Apple Remote.
Bottom line Apple plans to release Front Row with Mac OS 10.5, so if you have a Mac that doesnt have infrared for an Apple Remote, the RF Remote is an excellent choice. The RF Remote also a great replacement for the Apple Remote, given that devices infrared lim...
