The power of a $200 remote for $20
This review is from: RCA RCRP05B Universal Infrared 5 Device Cable Replacement Remote
Pros: The RCRP05B features the JP1 (technically the JP1.3) interface - with a JP1-to-USB cable and a few hours of learning, you can program this remote to control just about anything with an IR sensor. You can actually control up to eight devices with it - not just the five that it appears to control. Additionally, you can custom program your own macros to do just about anything - for example, turn all the components on to do a certain function, such as watch a DVD. Even without a JP1 cable, you can still manually program it to run many more devices besides those for which codes are already included.
Cons: The JP1 interface software does have a bit of a learning curve to it - make sure to read up on it before diving in. Additionally, you'll make some mistakes before learning how to do everything - you just need a little patience.
Other Thoughts: Controls everything in my living room except my three-year-old!
