This contest is CLOSED! The winner will be announced shortly. Make sure to check our homepage for the latest contest!

Welcome to the MissingRemote.com Re-Launch Giveaway Contest! As you might have noticed by now, we have done a complete makeover to the website and forum community. As you may imagine, we are still making tweaks, changes and fixes to this new layout, but if you see any issues big or small, please make sure to let us know in our Site Issues post.

A bit of history…MissingRemote.com has been around since 2006 providing you the latest news, reviews and forum discussions on the topics of Home Theaters and HTPCs, etc since then, and we feel this new design should make everyone’s time here more enjoyable.

As a thank you to everyone for their continued loyalty and support, we’ve got some awesome reviews and articles lined up. But you all want some free stuff for your home theater, right?

Well, to help kick things off, we have received amazing support from our product sponsors and have some awesome prizes to giveaway….and will be doing so OFTEN!!! We will be giving away a PRIZE almost every 48 hours, literally until we run out of prizes! We have 17 companies that have helped chip in, and with almost
$5,000 worth of prizes
, there’s plenty of chance for everyone to win!!

First we wanted to give a special thank you to all our sponsors who have donated prizes: Arcsoft, AMD, Amulet Devices, Blue Monkey Communications, BigScreenGlobal, Ceton Corp, GlideTV, HDPlex, HDStor Inc, Intel, Microsoft, Nvidia, Microsoft, Patriot Memory, Phantom Entertainment, QNAP, SageTV & Vidabox!

To get things started we have some wonderful prizes from Arcsoft, and are giving away ONE copy of their awesome Blu-ray playback software for Windows, Total Media Theater 3 Platinum!

This fantastic Blu-ray playback software allows you to play high definition movies from Blu-ray disc and even stored on your hard drive.
