I'm drowning in remotes again....

...but to be fair, I have like 15 (unique IR code) devices in my Home Theater setup.

I used to have one remote to control them all...a URC-6131 which was hacked controlled 7 ReplayTVs, and the TV + Receiver.

I had a another URC that that I had reprogrammed to control the Momitsu V880N because it worked better than the original remote. And, even though this remote could control my Cox HD DVR, I opted to keep the Cox remote around.... I have a few other remotes stashed to control less frequently used devices or modes...like the Samsung SIR-T351/SIR-T451 remote, Samsung HLN4265W1 remote, CD changer.

But, yesterday two new remotes got added to this mix. The TiVo HD's and the Zektor HDVI5's. I could reprogram the Zektor to respond to a different remote, but I don't have extra buttons around to do that....and I need to think what would make good codes. Or find a open spot somewhere else to add it.

I briefly thought about reprogramming the second URC for the TiVo or getting another universal remote of some type...but one of the problems of universal remotes is the layout doesn't match the original or keys aren't labeled as clearly as the original, etc. And, I decided against that...at least for now.

I would like to find another URC-6131, since the buttons on that are starting to give me trouble.... Which might prompt to get JP1 software going again so I can at least clone the URC-6131 (wonder how straight forward to clone to a 6131N....of course, the layout is different so I'd have to learn another layout for something I've gotten used to).

Oh well..... :**:

Now instead of subjecting some poor random forum to a long rambling thought, I will try to consolidate those things into this blog where they can be more easily ignored profess to be collected thoughts from my mind.
