A Universal Remote Control is a special remote control that is able to control all of the devices within your entertainment system. Therefore, rather than having a separate remote control for you VCR, DVD player, television, receiver and converter box, you can use just one remote control to control all of the devices. Even if you have the bare basics and will have only a television and a converter box in your system, purchasing a converter box with a Universal Remote Control will make it possible for you to have just one remote rather than two. Not only will this save you from having to search for all of your remotes when it comes time to watch television, it will also help you keep the room less cluttered because you will only need to keep one remote handy rather than multiple remotes.

It is not necessary to get a converter box that comes with a Universal Remote Control. At the same time, having a Universal Remote Control does make watching television more convenient. Therefore, if you are considering purchasing a converter box that does not come with a Universal Remote Control, you might want to consider purchasing one separately.
When purchasing a Universal Remote Control separately, keep in mind that you will have to program the remote to work with your television and your converter box. If you purchase one with the converter box, on the other hand, it will already be programmed to work with the converter. In addition, purchasing Universal Remote Controls can be expensive, so you may actually save money by purchasing one with the converter box rather than purchasing it separately.
