Looking for a new remote to control 5 devices. I was leaning towards the Harmony 700, but it appears that it's missing a few buttons used for a Dish Network STB. Like Watch Live TV, DVR, and Search. Are there any other remotes that work well with the Dish?

That harmony has 4 "soft" buttons on the first page that you can put any function you want on. That's where I put all those functions when I had a harmony and Dish.

For just 5 devices, the $8 RCA RCRP05BR has even more buttons that you can assign any functions to as well, and it works fine with Dish and those other devices you listed, except I'm not 100% certain about the Klipsch. Worst case you can just learn that one if necessary.

The RCA is nice, but I definitely want back lighting. I think the 700 might work, looks like it has six extra buttons.

Only 4 per screen. The other 2 are for changing screens.
