OK, in my call to Olive, I asked about using Universal remotes. The fellow said that they use RC-5 (the Phillips standard) for remotes. This is the same standard my Classe pre-amp uses -- which may be a bad thing, because I also read somewhere about a Krell user that complained that using the Olive remote messed with his integrated amp.
I read somewhere about someone having a problem using universal remotes and the Olive devices. The fellow I spoke with said that they currently don't support the use of any third-party remotes, but expect to add that support later in the year.
I have a JP1 remote (the ones you program via a special homebrew cable), and am pretty confident that I can program it to work correctly. The RC5 power-on sequence is tricky, but I got it to work for my Classe (with tech help from the remote manufacturer). The only question would be -- can I control one without controlling both?
Well, hopefully someone else wanted to know that!
