I've found that to be the case with my Pronto remotes that I use with my x050 series Yamaha AVRs and my CX-A5100. At least all of the major ones work. The 5100 has some features (extra DSP settings...

My Philips player did have a firmware download when first installed, nothing since then though (I think it went from 1.01 to 1.04 if my memory serves me).
