I used to be able to "round up" for All-for-one remotes for my needs for about $7 in small quantities. Those are gone.

Does anyone know a source for some inexpensive JP1 remotes? I need new remotes, ready to program, and I just need to program 4 buttons so I need (want) cheap remotes.

I use these in lieu of manufacturing my own remote. I have a low volume product I need a remote for, it costs me about $25/remote to have them made in 200's. I'd rather be buying remotes in 10's and 20's.

Thanks,
Scott

There are many small lots of comcast JP1 remotes on ebay all the time for as little as $4 each. If you could contact the suppliers of the cable companies, you may even be able to get a better deal. Perhaps contact UEI directly.

I should have said, I need a remote with no branding (e.g. "Comcast"). Generic branding OK (e.g. OneForAll).

I really need a more reliable source that eBay. I tried the UEI route before, unless you are buying 5,000 they aren't interested in helping. I can make 5000 myself, the point of going JP1 is to keep cost down with lower volume purchases. But I need to have a consistent unit, so eBay ins' ta good path unless there's a popular unit that "fits" that's regularly available.

Well, those are the cheapest I've seen. What about rubbing out the brand with nail polish remover, or better yet, covering it with a sticker of your own brand?

I understand the need for consistency, but models go out of production every few years. So consistency is going to be difficult.

Another person I spoke with recently, also using remotes with his product, ended up using simple, cheap, learning remotes like this in lieu of JP1:

Yes, one like that might work.

Yes. Depends on model and price.
