    I am considering a Universal remote of some sorts and there are loads on eBay, but I need something that will work with Sky too... do any of them??? If so, which is the best... nothing costing Megabucks though please!

    Also ideally need it to control:

    Naim Nait 3R
    Yamaha DSP-E800
    JVC 17" LCD TV
    Toshiba SD520E DVD

    Any of those likely to cause problems??

    Cheers in advance folks!

    Scott

    Go for a Philips Pronto RU890 *WITH* a docking station (if you can). Although this is the first generation UK pronto and black & white, it's still very capable and configurable and can be got for a very good price on eBay.

    I assume as you recommended it can handle Sky then??

    Also found a Marantz 5200, i assume very similar.. if a little better looking!

    Yes, the Pronto (and its Marantz derivatives) can handle Sky happily. You can learn the codes yourself or download an existing CCF that someone else has done from Remote Central.
