Question Re: Using an iPod as a remote control!

You could control that receiver through any suitable browser connected to the same network. There are several other DLNA-compliant devices on the market (check out for a list of tested devices), but, for some unknown reason, this compliance isn't touted in their marketing. You should be able to control any compliant device in your home through your iPod Touch or any other suitable browser.
I checked out that web site & it showed the Sony playstation 3 as one of the DLNA devices, but when I use the PS3 url it does not open up a web controller, it doesn't open up any page at all just a problem loading page screen.
Should I be able to control my PS3 the same way I do my Denon since it's listed?
