I am using a Yamaha RX-V2400 receiver with a Logitech media player to play music in my living room.
The Yamaha remote is complete overkill. The only functions I need are power, volume, mute.

I couldn't find any simple remote that still "looks quality".

Are there any out there?

The Acoustic Research ARi3G has been a solid remote for me. It has all the buttons you need, and is fairly comfortable. It even has a learning function.

BTW. came across some smaller Yamaha remotes; i.e. RAV25, RAV27, RAV31. Will those remote work with a 2400?

Regarding the ARi3G: I has only one power button. Will this work with the Yamaha? Seems like there are two buttons for power on/off on the Yamaha.

How about this?

URC MX-200 (also known as the sidekick)


It originally sold with the MX-700 from URC. You can get the software here (See Download editor software at the bottom of the page):

NX-RM820

You won't be able to learn commands without a MX-700, mx-800 or mx-850 but the Yamaha codes should be in the database in the software. While the yamaha may not be listed as the 2400 model, it seems yamaha uses the same codes for various models. You can download the software and see if the 2400 is there. You can also import hex codes for discretes into the software. You can also put a macro on any button (except the light) on this remote. A simple click will perform a single action while a press and hold will activate the macro.
