I'm one of the few buyers who hated the Harmony 880 and promptly returned it (chronically buggy customization software and the fact you could not customize it from your home theater space unless you also had an internet connected PC right beside you).
Here are tons of remote control reviews: http://www.remotecentral.com/
I went with the Universal Remote URC200
. It's fairly cheap, yet loaded with features. It offers plenty of flexibility and control over its customization. On the downside, I can't promise it will have a profile for your player, so you'll probably need to borrow an HD-A20 remote from someone and use the "learn" feature to teach it. (As I did. Works great.)
Remote controls are priced all over the map, and the designs are so varied that, truly, one person's delight will be the next person's poison. So decide on the features you want, do a little reading, and make a selection. You could probably pick up a $15 remote at your local electronics store and get by, but if you want something with a little more flexibility that can also consolidate several of the remotes on your coffee table into one device, be prepared to spend a little more $, time and energy.
