gdfatha, I bought an RCA remote that has an LCD display (like a
palm pilot) with a little (pen) that controls TV, VCR, DVD, AMP, TUNER, CD, TAPE, has an auxiliry too which I programmed my dimming lights to. I don't usually buy RCA brand but I figured I'd
try their remote. Had it about 3 months and still works great. My brother in law has had his about a year and his still works fine. When the lights are off the screen glows a blue color so you can
see what you are peckin at. It cost about $100.00.
