Many sources for codes - hifi-remote.com, GlobalCache, Harmony, RemoteCentral, manufacturer technical documents, trail and error (there are typically only 256 possible commands for most devices due to the data structure - 1 byte).
That $15 JP1 remote you are using ... is it an Inteset? Or is the brand actually JP1, and where did you (where do I) get it? Thanks!
Xsight, Nevo and OARUSB04G, each $15 on ebay when I got them. Xsight/Nevo prices have gone up in the past few years, closer to $30 now.
BTW, I do have a Roku TV, 3 of them, actually (TCL 43" 4K). I'd like to have direct access to a variety of streaming channels other than the 4 on the remote (Hulu, Sling, Netflix, Now).
We have a full codeset for that TV (http://www.hifi-remote.com/forums/dl...&file_id=14764

Edit: Does the Inteset 4-in-1 come with a JP1 cable?
No, but some do, like the Xsight / Nevo on ebay and SimpleSet models like the OARUSB04G. JP1 cable typically runs around $8 on ebay. We'll need to advise you on exactly what to buy. Searching for "JP1" on ebay won't yield any results.
Full JP1 remote list with interface types below. A little outdated but close.
In terms of ergonomics and functionality, even at $25, the Inteset is still my favorite simple JP1 remote. You can probably add all the discretes you want without using a JP1 cable at all. You'd just enter the codes we tell you to enter for each command. Just let us know the make/model of each device and the desired commands.
Even if you end up liking the Philips better, you could at least use the JP1 remote for teaching all the discretes, probably not needing a JP1 cable at all. For that matter, a cheap Harmony like the 650 could serve the same purpose and would be simpler to figure out and includes an interface cable.
