    So now that I have my h/t setup I am in need of a remote to run everything. I currently have an Onkyo rec. RCA DVD player, JVC TV, digital cable, and a CD Player. I looked at the Logitech 880 last night at Best Buy and have been looking on the net at a few and I am wondering what you all would suggest for around $100-$150.

    If you need simplicity, go with a Harmony. My dad who has a difficult time running a computer programmed his without assistance. If you can do without the color screen and the recharging stuff, get a Harmony 659. You don't have a tremendous amount of equipment and can pick one up on line for under $100.

    If you want a fully programable/customizable LCD touchscreen remote then Pronto Neo 500s are available refurbished for around $70. You can create completely custom screens (or multiple screens) for each device including custom graphics (like TV Channel logos).
