    Question about generic mce remote

    I'm looking at ebay for an mce remote and receiver. I've noticed a ton of generic looking remotes made by HooToo. I've tried searching to see if anyone posted any experience with them, but I haven't found anything.

    Has anyone used them? Do they work?

    Here is a link to a sample.

    For under $15 shipped just order it. I'm betting it will register as a standard MCE remote
    Last night I lay in bed looking up at the stars in the sky and I thought to myself, where the heck is the ceiling.

    I thought about it, for the price, so what if it didn't work. I'm just tired of trying to get my hauppauge remotes working so I wanted something I knew would work. I saw in some other posts where they are using the AVS Gear remotes so I ordered one of them from newegg.

    But I might buy one of the hootoo remotes anyway. I will still need another for my bedroom myth box.

    I believe it is this type of remote:

    Thanks for that. For the price I will order one and see what happens. For now my AVS remote will be arriving today. So I will try it out either tonight or over the weekend. Hopefully it will solve my duplicate button press issue with the hauppauge grey remote.
