Just at the OFA site...
The picture and description of the 8810 and 8811 are identical, what is the difference between the two?

Also, which retailer carries these models?

The URC-8811 and URC-8810w ARE identical. The URC-8810w is a special model number given to the units sold at Walmart, everybody else gets the URC-8811.

I suspect the reason for the two model numbers is because Walmart sells their stuff so cheap, and Circuit City, which in one of OFAs main accounts, has a price match policy. So, if you buy a URC-8811 for $30 at Circuit City and then discover the URC-8810w for only $20at Walmart, you can't get a refund because "technically" they are different remotes.

It's the same story for the URC-6011 and URC-6012w.

We also see different model numbers used for Canada. For example, the URC-8011 sells there as the URC-8017, and the URC-9960 (Kameleon) sells there as the URC-9962

I think that the difference is that the 8810 has green backlighting and the 8811 has red backlighting. I just bought an 8811.

Nope, that's not it. The older versions of all these remotes had green backlighting and the newer versions all have red backlighting.

There is no difference between 8810s and 8811s of the same age.
