i still use a sony universal (vl series)learning remote on some of my systems--around $20 on ebay or wherever. they're simple, work well and have hard buttons, which i much prefer to touch screens.

Agree with Loomisjohnson about the Sony. I use a VL-700 and have a second one as a backup. It is a learning remote, controls up to five devices and the layout is simple and intuitive. Mine is at least six years old and it looks as if unless it step on it I'll never need the backup. The VL-900 is almost identical but controls more devices, I think.
