While searching for these, I ran into the JP1 project.  As if I have time
for more hobbies.  Anyway, I just bought two  URC-8910's.  I hope I like
them . . they were cheap enough ($40 for both).

Plus, since I'm sure I'll be messing with JP1 (
http://www.hifi-remote.com/jp1/ ), those are compatible :)

I'll keep ya posted!
