Universal Remote Control

  Graham. 15:46 15 Dec 2008

I'm looking for a Remote Control to use instead of the one that came with my Humax HDR.

I've tried a Logitech Harmony One, that was OK-ish, but had a fault which meant it went back for a refund.

It need only control the TV and Humax, nice big buttons, and back-lit if possible.

Would probably need to be programmed on-line.

Something like click here, but would welcome personal recommendations.

Thanks, worth a look at £10.

We bought a Silvercrest/Welltech universal remote control from Lidl about six months ago (£5.99) after trying out several that didn't work too well.

It's proved first class for its purposes, controlling a high mounted Panasonic TV in a dialysis ward (each patient on the ward has an individual TV).

Thanks for that. I'm going to visit Lidl and Aldi tomorrow.

Would that be Netto in Penistone where the Co-Op used to be?

Glad you liked it, but from my link, I've cheched myself, you will get different videos. The one I liked was about euphenisms.

I have a Kameleon URC that also uses the same type illuminated display like the one in your link but I don't use it any more as it ate batteries like no one's business. 4 AAAs lasted less than a week.
