Hello,

I'm looking for a learning remote with an internal clock that can run multiple-device macros on a schedule (twice a day).

Simply, at (say) 9AM turn two devices (an AVR and a projector) on, and at 5PM turn them off. But the devices must be powered up at all time in standby mode, so simple AC switching won't do.

One more need: this must be a currently-available remote, not something I would have to find and buy used.

There used to be a few of these on the market (Sony, and the old Memorex that Radio Shack also sold, for example) but now I can't find a single one.

Wide Awake

Not sure if you can get this new or not but I used to use it for exactly the same job.
