Are there any programmable remotes with large screen that basically duplicates the look/.button...

Ie, something that pretty much puts a picture of the remote you want to use and it's buttons and layout so it looks like you're using the original remote?

Thanks (links please)

There are, but you'll have to create the screens yourself. iRule and similar programs have this capability. Personally, I find an exact copy unnecessary, counter productive, and a lot of effort to program. Also, simply copying the original remote takes away the ability to mix functions from different remotes, which is a great feature to have in a universal. Most people would want to mix the transport buttons from their disc player with the volume buttons of their receiver with the input buttons of their tv for example. Copies of the original remotes really does nothing to simplify operation of one's home theater besides eliminating the need to juggle remotes. You should really rethink this approach.

THanks, I was more curious than anything. Still haven't found anything I like and will stick with and I still have too many remotes frown.gif
