replacing URC R50

My R50 is starting to no longer register the play button, after 8 years of use.

According to Amazon, URC is discontinuing the R50? Thats unfortunate. The only device that is a consumer product that comes close to it in terms of number of remotes it replaces is the considerably more expensive Harmony One

Are there any other remotes that offer similar functionality at a similar price point? Is URC introducing a successor to the R50?

One other question:
The only complaint I have the with the R50, is in my new place, its a little 'weak'--meaning I have to almost get off the couch to get it to control the cable box. Suggestions? I actually just found an open box R50 for < $50, so I picked up a 'new' one... Should I have gone RF?

You could try looking for used mx-450, the RF version of the R50. The R50 was replaced by the URC-R40.
