Ray Remote

IMO - a universal remote has buttons so you can use them by feel.

I never look at the remote when I use it, I know where the buttons are.

I think the best remote is going to be a hybrid. One with a touchscreen and hard buttons as well.

The other aspect I have not liked about universal remotes is that you ned to change modes when using different devices. press TV to turn it into the TV remote, DVD for the DVD remtoe etc. Granted, I have extremely limited experience with them as I have never found one I like so I gave up.

The one remote I did like was my old Yamaha learning remote. You put the switch in to user mode, it retained all the Yahama codes for all the buttons but you could learn a new code to replace it. So I had volume up and down for the amp, input for the TV, transport for the Laserdisc player all on one remote without needing to switch between modes.

That remote is still used today on my bedside table to control my lights.
