I want to get a universal remote to handle primarily the SB3, but also 2 DVD players, home theatre amp etc.. Preferably it should have RF capability too.

Does anyone have any ideas, and also does anyone know if Logitech are going to make a universal remote that also handles the SB3?

The Logitech Harmony Universal remote series works perfectly with the SB3.

I know at least the Harmony 890 has some kind of RF, but I'm not sure if it only works with the bundled RF receiver or also with other RF based devices.

I personally have a Harmony 688 and recently also a Harmony 785 and I can recommend both.

The Pronto 940 (I got one off Ebay) can learn the SB3 commands fine.

The harmony 890 is probably perfect but looks very old fashioned ... wonder if they are coming out with a new one soon?

The trouble with the pronto is surely with a touch screen interface it is next to impossible to operate in the dark by touch alone?

I have a Universal MX700 and their online software has the codes to download.
