The Harmony 650 universal remote would probably solve your problem.

The Logitech site says it's compatible, but I'm wondering if the SACD button would appear in the LCD window. SACD is such a niche format that I'm worried when they say "compatible" what they mean is that it will power up, play, skip track, etc. but won't access the SACD function. Guess the only way to find out is to buy one and return it if it doesn't work. Thanks for the tip!
I’ve had several of these players. When considering a purchase of a Sony DVP9000ES you need to use a hybrid CD. If the player doesn’t recognize the SACD layer, don’t buy it. I can’t explain the science of it but it should automatically identify that it has been fed an SACD. As this model ages, it fails to make that recognition. It will still play CDs (and very well, I think), it just won’t play SACDs.
I had a DVP9000ES for many years. My ex took it :) Anyway, if I recall, it played SACD upon inserting the disk. So I agree with tonykay that it should automatically identify that its been fed SACD media. Irrespective of the remote, the unit itself has a play button on it. What happens after you insert an SACD and press play?
