I've been using the URC-R50 for a while now and love it. It can be had for
around $50, and has macros, learning, a mostly sensible button layout. You
can use the programmability to set up activities buttons (if your
components have discrete on/off commands) with a little work. Construction
is sturdy. Only thing that could be better is the circular silver
directional control can be a little finicky.
