Question on best remote control option


Novice Member
Newbie and and quite possibly a silly question. I have a Universal Remote model MX980 a Denon AVR-3808CI and a Sony XBR-55A8F.
I also have the remote for the receiver and the TV. Is my best option to use the MX980 for all three or can the Sony or Denon remote perform this function? The MX980 is difficult to program. I used it for years with my old TV and it was great but now with the new TV I dont know how to program it.
Is there a better universal remote out there that is EASY to set up? I also have a Sonos sound system.
