SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — How many remotes does it take to watch television, stream Netflix or record your favorite show on DVR?

The Ray Super Remote wants to declutter your coffee table and become the central nervous system of all of your home entertainment systems.

The touch-screen device is designed to control TVs, cable boxes, DVRs, video game consoles and Internet streaming players such as Roku and Apple TV. What's more, it runs on software that learns viewers' preferences so it can list programs suited to personal interests.

The Ray remote, priced at $199, won't be released until May or June, but pre-orders are being accepted online at http://www.ray.co .
