    Hello. I own a Yamaha RX-V793 receiver and the remote, a RAV 150, recently died on me. The only websites I can find that can get one want around $150 (which is rediculous) and I have yet to find one anywhere else. I have found Rav 130s and Rav 160s on ebay, and they look identital but have a couple of added buttons. Would either of these remotes replace a Rav 150? I called Yamaha and the guy said to only use the same remote, but he wasn't very helpful. Any suggestions would be much appreciated. Thanks!

    Hi Brian,
    I know you said that the $150 was to much but you really might want to consider a the MX-500. I recently got one I must say this remote is awesome I have successfully gotten rid or a coffee table of remotes and replaced with this one. Makes the wife happier too! It can be had for ~110

    here

    Good luck Jeff
