That touch screen is nice; I like lots of aspects... including the apparent responsiveness and the nicely illuminated controls. Looks high-tech.

Thanks again for sharing.

Interesting; so it's possible to control the Zi8 with a remote control for a Vizio TV.

I'll have to try my several remote controls and see what else might be possible.

Thanks for sharing that.
