I use my Tivo remotes (from 2 old directv tivos) with my Streamzap 
receiver. Works great, except most of the writing on the buttons has 
worn off over the years...

I really love being able to program the volume for my old Kenwood 
receiver into the Tivo remote, seems to be missing on a lot of other 
universal remotes.
