I have an Oppo 103, a Sony HW 55ES, Direct TV, and a Rotel RSP 1066. I'd like to have one remote to control the basic functions of all four. Inexpensive and simple is good.

If they are out in the open get the 650 (usually about $49.99) on sale. If in a cupboard the best bet is the Smart Contro (I prefer 900 bit its discontinued). Personally, I don't like a Wifi remote like the Ultimate and Smart. If you have a "flaky" connection with the router, you have problems. My 650 and 900 don't depend on Wifi connections. Just my opinion.

Any of these will work.. I prefer the 900 which is discontinued but you may be able to find one on eBay or Amazon

Any cheap learning remote like the RCA RCRP05BR ($8) will also work, if you still have your Rotel remote to learn from (or get a JP1 cable). Very few cheap remotes still have those old Rotel codes built in. Harmony does have Rotel codes of course, probably URC too, but they can get expensive.
