I know there are plenty of threads on Universal Remotes. Problem is the tech changes so fast that by the time I need one the model doesn't exist any longer. Now that I really really need one because either the dogs thought they are chew toys or the recliner crunched them I'm left with no remote for the downstairs entertainment center. Using an old S2 remote for the Premiere just stinks (but I do like the softer rubber buttons on the S2). I've tried several universals but none of them could do everything. The main problem was the powering on/off the Vizo sound bar. Here is was I need to control: Tivo Premiere XL, all functions. Vizio E550VL TV all functions especially settings menu. Vizio Sound Bar on/off and volume control. Ideally the sound to the TV and sound bar could be linked. Even though the TV outputs to the Sound Bar via fiber optic I still need another remote to control its volume. The sound bar also has 3 inputs of which I use all 3 so need to be able to toggle those. Remote should be back-light/glow. Should use standard batteries (AA, AAA) although I'll consider a rechargeable it it gets really high reviews. Programming can't require the original remotes since I don't have them. For the TV I use 2 inputs mainly and would rather not have to shuffle through all 8 so some sort of easy toggle between HDMI1 (for Tivo) and AV (for Wii) would be nice. Something cool would be 2 modes by pushing 1 of 2 buttons: Mode 1 would be for Tivo with TV input set to HDMI1(Tivo), volume set at 40, Sound bar turned on, set to input 3 at %50 volume. Mode 2 would be for Nintendo Wii with TV input set to AV and volume at %10. Sound bar turned on with input 1 at %20 volume. I use input one to hook up an MP3 player or PC sound output While using the Wii. The remote should currently be on the market Nice Bonuses but not required: Control VIZIO VBR220 BLU-RAY PLAYER Turn Nintendo Wii off Replace Brighthouse STB HD Remote Control a Hunter Standup fan (on/off and speed 1,2, and 3) The remote should be sold by Amazon (have gift cards to burn) but not 3rd party Amazon vendors unless fulfilled by Amazon. Would also consider buy.com and newegg. I won't mention price but of course its a factor. I just want to see what people are using in similar setups and have proved as a success for them. Thank for any suggestions, warnings, etc!
