Bought a JP1-compatible remote
to control my TV, receiver, and HTPC with one control. Also picked up a USB FLIRC receiver dongle because I wasn't happy with my old one (came free with some other shitty remote).
This thing is awesome. Great simple remote. I have a much more expensive logitech Harmony that I hate--they try to be too user-friendly, and it backfires when the devices get out of sync.
This one is programmable using "JP1" (the same system your generic Comcast Cable or whatever remote is based on). The software is a little janky compared to the Harmony stuff, but I think I actually could have done all of the programming I needed with just the remote buttons.
Now I've got it mostly set up (might swap a couple of buttons that I never use for other features), and it is great. Nice feeling buttons, a backlight that automatically turns on when I pick up the remote, and it only cost $17.Edited by otc - 5/12/16 at 1:15pm
