A Logitech Harmony remote would be the best option, even one of the low end models like the 650. Added benefit would be also programming sound mode buttons to be available in activities, such as Watch TV.
Yeah, I really didn't want to fool with the added expense of buying another remote and all the programing. That's why I was hoping there was a way to get it working on the Comcast 3-in-1 remote.
But as of now this is what I'm using...
The Comcast 3-in-1 remote
for turning the Toshiba 32TL515U
on & off, and for controlling the Motorola DCX3200M box for changing channels, program info, DVR access, On-Demand, etc.Toshiba remote
that came with the HDTV for accessing its Net Apps, Netflix, DLNA streaming, 3D. I don't use this remote all the time, but need it for those specific features.JVC remote
for the combo DVD/VHS player (Play, pause, etc.)
And now the Yamaha remote
to turn the soundbar on/off and for volume.
So that's 4 remotes I've got on the night-stand, which takes up too much space. The Comcast 3-in-1 remote I've been able to use 80% of the time, and only had to use the Toshiba and JVC remotes when using those special features.
If I have to get a new universal remote, which do you think is the best to get to control all four devices (TV, cable box, DVD/VHS, soundbar)?
