I have an RCA Sat receiver (5451) that uses the RF remote (AC3). I need a universal remote that will control it as well as the following:
JVC 884V Receiver
Panasonic DVD Player Model A320
Zenith Television Model 32A30Z
Sony 5 Disc CD Changer

My major concern is that none of my supposed “Univeral” or “All-in-one” remotes will work to control the RCA satellite receiver. Maybe it doesn’t have an IR port on it, so I need one that does radio?? I don’t know, but I do know that my wife is going to kill me!! I have “5 million remotes!” Macros would be great because I could do it all with one button. (or my wife could) HELP HELP HELP

Please help with the unit that can help me along with pricing and where to buy it!!

The 5451 does have an IR interface as well as the RF. Also note that when learning from the original remote with the Pronto, I had to separate the two remotes further apart to get clean IR learns. Good luck.

The problem that I have been having is that other universal remotes won't work to turn the power on the 5451. I noticed the other day that instead of pressing the DBS button and then the power button to turn it on, all I did was press the DBS button (of course this causes all kind of problems when trying to program another remote.

Any help would be appreciate !!!
