TL;DR - I need a cheap remote that I can manually input codes into, so that I can then teach my Harmony from it. Suggestions please?


I have a Harmony remote and I'm very pleased with it, except there is one missing function in their database for my Amplifier, and teaching it fails too.

My Amp is Cambridge Audio Azur 851A. The remote has a button to toggle the LCD brightness. See image here: [Link:]

Cambridge Audio publish the codes for the IR remote here: [Link:]

For some reason teaching this via the lear button doesn't work. Not with Harmony or other universal remotes that can learn that I've tried.

From what I gathered online, one option is to buy a remote that I can input hex codes into and then use it to teach the Harmony. Any suggestions please? I don't have a Windows computer by the way, the software of the remote if it has one needs to run on Mac or Linux.

Many thanks!
