Remote for Marantz AV8003?

I have an AV8003 I picked up for $175 used with no remote. I could probably grab a generic universal for power and volume control, but I'd really like something that would let me use all of the tone/audio mode/direct functions on the receiver, and to control the power/input/picture mode on my Vizio M series TV too.


I was looking at the Logitech Harmony 665 remote, but idk how it will handle the secondary functions on the receiver. Anyone have any information on this or recommendations for other universals for my use case?


Thanks in advance!

Purchase the OEM remote --> https://www.ebay.com/i/171884465636?...iABEgIcifD_BwE
That is an owners manual.

@phillyd32 ...JD doesn't miss one like that very often If you don't end up with the original remote, I think the 665/650 are the best out there. 665 is black, 650 silver, same remote. They will do what ever you need. I use a 665 in my main room with a Denon X4400H and 6 other devices. Works great. If you have never used the My Harmony software, it takes a little learning but is worth it. When I added my Denon it had TOO MANY options loaded for just the remote. You can add, delete and rearrange them as you see fit. You are only limited really by your imagination as in what you want everything to do. Check ebay for used/refurb it you want to save a few. Or new at Amazon.

Lol and thank you for the information. All of the options being available for receivers is the confirmation I needed to grab the Harmony 665, I'll be grabbing one today!

Each zone is considered a separate device on Harmony. Use the term "zone 2", etc. when adding them. Also skip the confirm IR step when setting up since you don't have the original remote. Lastly, if you're missing any functions, you can email Logitech the pronto hex at [email protected] and they will add the codes to your account. If you can't find the pronto hex from a google search, I can post it.
