My main reason to buy the remote is the built-in timer functions. You can program the remote on a specific time to perform up to 10 keystrokes, like turning on the Amplifier, turn on the tuner, turn on the MD, start recording on MD. Up to 8 timers is available. You will need 2 timers settings if you also want the unit(s) to stop/turned off. Making it possible to have 4 timer settings active. The timers can be set to once, daily or on a weekly basis. Thus making recording of you favourite program very easy. You just have to insert a disk with sufficient space and the remote most point at the unit(s). The remote is the only one I have seen with timer functions programmable direct on the remote - (some other remotes have a timer function, but can only be programmed on a PC and that makes things complicated and time consuming).
I bought the remote at one of Germany's biggest stores, Brinckmann - click on TV,HiFi,Video, - Zubehör - Fernbedinungen or click here. But I am sure you can find it in other stores.
Feel free to ask me questions about the remote.
