    Hey all!
    I need to find a learning remote that doesn't cost more then $50 that DOES NOT loose its learned codes if the batteries are removed (I won't be able to re-learn them if I loose the IR Codes). It doesn't need to learn very many buttons (less then 8). Anybody have any recommendations? Thanks to all!

    I believe the Radio Shack 15-1994 can remember codes long after the batteries are removed, but I haven't tried this myself.
    Have a look at www.remotecentral.com too, and take a look at the USER REVIEW section.

    I know the One For All Cinema 6 and 7 Learning remotes don't. I've done it. So that should mean the radio shack one won't either.
    I'd highly recommend the One For All Cinema 6 or 7 (the URC6800 and 7800, not the 6200 and 7200). They can learn approximately 28 keys and have a bunch of macro functionality as well. Using a Cinema 6 I have completely replaced all my other remotes (Sony TV, Onkyo Receiver, ExpressVu DSS, Panasonic DVD and RCA VCR).

    I'd advise a quick look at the Sony RM-VL900 on Remote Central while you're at it. You won't run out of memory.
    Look here.

    I second the VL-900. All buttons are learnable and it doesn't run out of memory. Great ergonomics. No backlighting though, only glow in the dark, kind of.

    Well, I bought a 15-1994. Works perfect. Even tested the EEPROM by removing the batteries for the day and putting them back in and testing the remote. Remembered the commands. Thanks to all!
