If you are interested in turning your iPhone into an IR device, New Potato Tech sells a $79.99 device that pops onto the top of the iPhone / iPod Touch and turns it into a universal remote.  With the application, you can add devices by brand and control your home theater components with a couple simple taps on the iPhone.  Link  (Free)

 

 

 

 

 

imastercontrol

 

iMastercontrol Pro

This application is not targeted at the typical home theater consumer, but rather it’s designed for home theater gurus that use either a Crestron or AMX system to control their home theater and/or lighting.  It’s ideal for installers setting up these new systems in homes or for the savvy consumer that wants to try their hand at programming the system themselves.  Link ($149.99)
