Onkyo hrt550 remote replacement


Novice Member
Just bought this system used, asked ahead before pickup if it had remote, was told it did, and when I show up he says sorry no remote. I've found a few aftermarket remotes that claim they work, but for example one says wont switch between a and b speakers. I'm unfamiliar with 7.1 systems, I'm assuming this means you can't switch between the 2 sets of rear/side speakers when in 5.1 mode? Doesn't sound like the end of the world.

I'm worried if I go universal that I'll be missing a ton of functionality, unless someone knows of a good remote that I could try? And if I do end up missing functionality, anyone familiar with this system (Onkyo HT-R550) or similar models, know if I would be able to control everything from the buttons on the receiver?

I've got to purchase a setup microphone as well, plenty of cheap ones on amazon, anyone have experience with those?
