Maybe it was pie in the sky, but I was dreaming of a $10 remote that would control everything like the packaging says.
I'm in the same boat.
I switched from DirecTV to cable a while back and the Motorola remote that came with the cable box controls everything just fine, except my Sony receiver.
The remote will change channels, volume, and even inputs on the TV. But it won't change input/output on the receiver.
