Report Recommended Remote in Remote Controls Posted March 8, 2014 Thanks for the response, that clears up some of the things I wasn't sure about. Do you know if (for most universal remotes) if you program TV mode to your TV, then use DVD mode for HTPC/FLIRC, if the volume buttons would still do TV volume control while in DVD mode? That copying option is interesting. I'm sure I can find some useless remote around to teach all the buttons I want to use. In the end I may go with a two-remote solution, but that could be a bit annoying if I need to pick up a different remote depending if I want to change the volume or pause a show. It also doesn't help me get the wife moved over to using HTPC. :) Or I have to get over my need for advanced XBMC controls and just live with the basics.
