The other catch is that a lot of the newer remotes
(like the URC-10820 I have my eye on) aren't JP1
remotes, but JP1.1 or JP1.2 remotes. The JP1.2
remotes have the same connector (a 3x2), but the
internals are totally different.
If the remote is a JP1.2, then forget about being able
to use the JP1 tools (different CPU, different means
of communication that hasn't been reverse engineered
yet, and the progress is slow). Also, some of the
newer Radio Shack remotes might not support EFCs,
which allow you to program codes to buttons that don't
normally send them (which JP1 could fix).
If anybody has figured out EFCs on the Radio Shack
15-2146 remote (the one with the voice prompts), I'd
love to know how they did it - it looks good for a PVR
