    What do you guys consider to be the best universal remote for under $70? I'm going shopping for one tomorrow, so I'm looking for some opinions. Thanks in advance!

    Just got a Sony RM-VL900 that works well, check www.remotecentral.com
    for a detailed 900 review.
    Found mine at Best Buy for $59.00

    For under &70, I'd second the VL-900 nomination.

    I would check out the 15-1994 Universal remote from Radio Shack. It has quite a large following on the remote central forums. I have one, and it was easy to program, and use. It replaced 8 other remotes! Here is the LINK

    The 15-1994 has been discontinued, and some people are not very happy with some of the features of its replacement (2104). If you can find one, it's still a great bargain. The Cinema 7 with learning (7800, not the 7200 which doesn't have learning capabilities) is the equivalent of the 1994. I have two and think it is excellent. It has replaced eight remotes. Although it has only 7 devices, I use the transport buttons when in the receiver mode to control my CD player. The Sony is OK, but the Cinema 7 has more buttons to learn to and gives more flexibility. Plus, if you can solder, you can connect the Cinema 7 to your computer, and do all the programming there. You can add macros almost to your heart's content and do all kinds of extras with "advanced codes" including some things that were not on the remote that came with your equipment. The info is at www.hifi-remote.com.
