I thought the Shield remote was the worst remote until I got the AtV 4k. The ATV remote is the worst remote I have ever used.
Fortunately I use Harmony remotes with them, so I rarely touch the stock remotes.
I have been using this Wechip remote
with the Shield (note that there are a number of other Chinese clones sold under various brand names, all or most for under $20). I have found the keyboard feature on the reverse especially handy.
Like you, I never use any stock remotes, preferring a universal remote. Unfortunately, my Sony RMVLZ620 does not work with the Shield, which is why I purchased the Wechip.
