We have children and children lose remotes. When the remote to the DVD player was misplaced, the best solution was to replace the entire fleet of remotes with one single universal remote. Keeping track of five is somehow much simpler than keeping track of one, I know this because this is what we do in our movie room. We have a super fancy remote that always goes back on the charger, and we spend zero time looking for it. It’s a super nice logitech, we didn’t necessarily want to spend another $200 and didn’t even need anything that fancy so this was a great alternative. It was actually super easy to program, just as easy as the fancy one, and it works seamlessly with all of the devices.
