Best Universal Remote for DSR-410 that doesn't "Break the bank?"
Hadn't seen this addressed yet.
I've been using a Philips SRU4208WM/17 (Long name for a simple remote, best to google it) but...the buttons wear out, (have had two of 'em)....and want to find a universal that will for sure learn the functions of an original GI/Motorola remote, plus handle Vizio TV, Toshiba DVD-R, and maybe a couple other things. But, the major thing is, it must learn the DSR-410.
I tend to doubt that any of the "download via USB" fancy ones even know about hte existence of many of the things we satellite experimenters have in our equipment roster...so "learning" is a must. (If you've owned original birdview, you know that's true.)
What are the assembled here using for control, and what are the pluses and shortcomings found relative to the DSR and modern TV functions?
Can't use a 920 or 922 remote....'m still running that receiver as a positioner for FTA in the same room, and (luckily before) the end of our datastream on 4D, the factory reset of my new 410 also reset my 922. Luckily it is NOT a brick.
Hope this is interesting for all!
