I’ve got a couple of weird off-brand components, and about 8 remote controls. I’d love to get a single universal remote, but I’ve yet to find one that has codes for all my components.
I’ve gotten one with a “search” feature which lets me page through the 800 or so codes built in hopes of hitting the one that work (none of 'em did, in any case.)
I’m sure I read somewhere that there are universal remotes that have a reciever built into them so that you can “teach” the universal remote by pointing the component’s remote at the universal remote and the universal remote “learns” the signals the component’s remote is sending.
A) Does such a thing exist?
B) Can I get one for less than, say…$75.00?
C) (we’re edging away from GQ and into IMHO territory here, sorry) Can anyone recommend one with this feature (brand name, model number) that they’ve had success with and liked?
