Our take on the Sony RM-X170

Need a replacement remote for your Sony DVD receiver? The RM-X170 is just the ticket. It's a direct replacement for what came in the box with select Sony DVD and navigation receivers, so you'll have fingertip control over your entertainment. It currently works with the XAV-60, XAV-62BT, XAV-70BT, XAV-72BT, XNV-660BT, and XNV-770BT receivers.
