    Hi Chaps,

    I need a remote. I have an all-pioneer system - 504 screen, 868 player, D814 amp, a pioneer DVD recorder and a pioneer freeview box (I forget the model numbers for the last two).

    So at the moment, I am juggling 3 to 5 remotes every time I want to do anything :suicide:

    As the system is all-pioneer, there is some cross-compatibility with the remotes but it seems to be extremely limited.

    Can someone recommend me a suitable universal remote with minimum functionality as follows:

    * Switch on/off from standby the freeview box, amp and screen simultaneously, with a slight delay between switching on screen and switching on freeview.
    * Synchronise screen inputs with audio inputs (eg. at the moment when I switch the screen to DVD, I have to also switch the amp to DVD audio with a separate remote.
    * volume control and usual stuff.

    I am not keen on pronto-type remotes as they are far too expensive. Is there something that can do this kind of thing for around £100 or less? I am not fussed about touch screens either - I would prefer buttons.

    Thanks in advance,

    Mat
