I simply need a universal remote that's well built; doesn't look or feel tacky; doesn't require an engineering PhD to set up and operate; and isn't prohibitively expensive. (Ideally no more than £50.)
The obvious contenders have channel number buttons at the very bottom of the control. Since these are the buttons I'd use most, they're rather inconveniently located. This seems true of all Logitech and One for All remotes. I'm really not sure what else is out there.
As per my kit list, the remote will only need to control a Panasonic VT65; a Cambridge Audio 651BD; a Yamaha RX-A810; and a Teac PD-H600. I have a PS3, too, but since this is near obsolete, and I only use it very occasionally for gaming, PS3 controllers are good enough.
I'm looking to compile a shortlist. All suggestions are welcome.
