Anybody have one of these, or the RC 884, they want to part with?
I agree with going with a Harmony or something else. A repalcement remote for that (just guessing) would be in the $80-$100 ballpark.You could contact Denon tech support as well as I am sure they would be willing to sell you a replacement. Though I would spend that money on a harmony or entry level URC product and make control of the entire system easier.
They can very greatly from AVR to AVR i know a replacement for my 3808 is like $80 and for the Marantz my brother has is like $100. Price will very greatly depending upon the make and model.:TActually from past experience I would say 40-60 but still more than I would spend.
I'm not sure that is true, i can access my OSD from my cable TV box remote but there is a learning curve to know what buttons do what. Also i find it easier just to pick up the AVR's remote when i have to dig around in the menu.My prolem with the Harmony is that I dont think it will access the setup menu.
