Universal remote?

Mon Feb 26, 2007 9:07 am

I'd like to switch to a universal remote. Anyone using a universal with the Roku? I'm aware of the $700 one that Roku provides a file for, but I'm looking for something a little more reasonable. Like less than the cost of the SoundBridge itself. Say under $100.

Try the Harmony 520 at Walmart for ~$90 ... id=4302606

I have the 880 and 659 and love them both!
You like the one button activity use!

Yeah, it works great with my Harmony 880. I have even set direct access to presets using the soft buttons. All functions of the original and more are available to the Harmony.

Any learning remote will work, take about 2 minutes to program with the existing remote. If you want to hack a little pick up a remote that supports JP1 and customize away.
