Right now 5, I put away the Prof 7301 remote this morning. Really the only time I use a remote is to turn on the Pioneer 1019 and shift inputs or when I blind scan with one of my boxes, other than that everything is controlled with my keyboard and mouse.

We have four, but my wife confuses things by thinking she can just take one downstairs and use it on the tv down there when she can't find the downstairs remote. They look identical, but they are not interchangeable. So we wind up with two rooms with neither remote working right. And lets not talk about cordless phones. I hear the phone ringing, but try to find that stash of phones piled up in some remote corner of the house under a blanket or cushions.

I have TOO MANY and I'm considering putting numbers on them so my wife knows which one to bring me, lol...
"Honey, could you bring me remote #18 please?"

She has often suggested a remote holster, if there's such a thing.

Upstairs no coffee table but a total of seven. Hitachi rear projo, Express Vu receiver, Pansat 3500, DSR905(4DTV), Uniden Supra, LG DVD player, Yamaha RX-V795 home theater receiver.
I do have a harmony remote I bought for here but with all the switching back and forth between 4DTV and C-Band to move the dish it got pretty confusing to do it on the harmony. The Yamaha remote does control basic TV on/off function and will change channels on the Express-Vu but my wife prefers the actual remote for that. So all of these are used at one time or another.

Downstairs- That's my play area, a dedicated home theater with 92" screen.........and yes, all of these remotes do get used. In fact, there is one piece of equipment that is missing it's remote. It is a JVC 32" CRT TV hiding behind the projector screen. I use it for the analog sources for better picture. There will be more remotes once I get a HD FTA receiver but for now there are nine remotes as follows:
Kenwood AV receiver
Insignia Blu Ray
Sony DVD
Sony Beta
Pioneer Laser disc
Hitachi Projector
Sharp VHS
Sony 300 disc changer
Express Vu receiver

Wow, I thought I was the only one suffering from the "Remote Blues." There are only four on the coffee table, one for the TV, one for the Blue-Ray, one for the Philips sound, and one for the CNX Duo.

In the bedroom (My main place to watch TV) there are seven, a Legacy ll for moving the C Band dish, Magnavox DVD, CNX Duo slaved to Coolsat 5000, the CS5K, a digital for Magnavox OTA Digital receiver, and two universals (not sure what THEY do any more).

One logitech harmony on our coffee table. The others stay put up behind the tv and most have no batteries. Every few months, my uncle comes down and he has dish network. He wants the old dish remote becuase he has all the buttons memorized so I have to dig it out and load it with batteries. Harmony is a life saver for me (expecially the help button that fixes almost anything).
....and before anyone asks, this is not an advertisement. These things just work.
