The three URC8910s I've been using for years are getting tired and falling apart. New 8910s are impossible to find. What, if any, are the currently produced and available JP1 remotes that would offer similar functionality? Ideally, reworking my RMDU and IR files should be a relatively painless process.

Thanks

Steve

I used to use the 8810 and 8910's. I've moved on to the atlas 1056 OCAP's. backlit, learners. On ebay they can be had for about $12. the extender works well for them.
Best,
jeff

Keep in mind that the Atlases are JP1.3 remotes so you'll need a way to talk to them.

There is also the RCA RCRP05B, which can be found at Best Buy and elsewhere for roughly $20, and less on-line. It's also JP1.3 and needs a serial or USB-based JP1 cable. The main drawback is that it only has 5 device keys, and 8 internal devices. The extender syntax is virtually the same as the 8910's, making it easy to duplicate.

Looking at a 1056, it seems to have many of the same keys as the RCA, just laid out differently.
