I have a bar I made for my basement that I'd like to add a small controll panel to. Ie...The Volume Control from the receiver and the Disc & Track Skip features from the DVD player. Would it be easier to canibalize a spare univeral remote? Or...If I took my remotes to an electronics guru, say, at Radio Shack, would they be able to get the I/R frequencies from those particular buttons and custom make a transmitter for me with separate buttons? I think it would be a cleaner install if I didn't have to use the canabalized remote. This isn't something I want to spend a bunch of money doing. I just thought it would be handy when we are bellied up to the bar to have those features right there instead of dragging remotes around. Any have any experience with something like this?
