    PS3 and Universal remote

    Mrs and I finally decided to get a Bluray player so I broke down today and bought a PS3. Very nice...however.

    I've got a Harmony 659 universal remote and apparently the PS3 won't take IR commands? WTF??? Could certainly get the blutooth remote and be just fine but what can I do to make the PS3 work with my universal IR remote?

    Help?

    Make sure to tell 4vr4cy how great it is and how we need to have a PS3... I mean a Blu-Ray DVD player.

    Jeez, now another toy I do not have that everyone is talking about. I am not keeping up with the Jonses very well.

    You sir have set an unattainable snow pants bar that we can't ever hope to achieve. We are trying to make up for clear snow pants deficiencies (sp?).

    I've had the 659 for about 3 years. Great remote. I just run my PS3 with the bluetooth wireless controller.

    That's probably where I'm headed as well.
