I just got one of the Creative DVD remotes and I found that the reciever will read signals from my Apex stand-alone DVD controller. However, I tried all of my other controllers (old RCA VCD contoller, Sony receiver controller, Pioneer DVD controller, Zenith Univ. controller) and none of them registered according to Girder. It that because the IR receiver is only reads signals in a specific range? Or maybe the other controllers don't send the same type of signal? Just curious. The button arrangement isn't the best on my Apex controller and I was hoping to snag a remote off eBay to use with the IR reciever I have. Thanks!
