"Discrete codes" ... so that's the terminology I need to search for. Thanks! Googling brought up some hits for other Samsung DLP models ... I'll probably find some for my own if I search a little more.
However, since researching other remotes I'm getting the One For All 9910 remote instead. 7/8 as capable* as the 880 at 1/8 the cost. I also have a tiled floor, which makes it more important to get a remote that is cheap to replace if it's dropped and broken. The 880's color LCD screen is really cool though, it's almost worth buying just to see the "wow" expression
on my friends' faces.
