i have a yamaha htr 5440 and a pioneer vsx 498

the original remotes are long gone.  I have a cheap universal remote that is ok but it can't access certain sub menus such as LFE out and setting speaker size SML or center sm M l or none  etc etc. 

Does anyone know of a remote that can access every function of these amps?   I don't mind spending the money but i want to know ahead of time that it will work.


I found a website that sells old remotes but i'd rather not spend the money on something old that i know won't last very long

Rich.  You may have to get an old remote and learn the codes into a new universal remote.  You can also try looking for your model numbers at www.remotecentral.com  Someone may have already posted the codes you need.

Thanks for the reply.  Tried the direct tv remote on a whim and bingo!  I can now accesss those functions on the yamaha amp.  I'll try the pioneer later.
