need help with remotes

by JFriedrich / January 17, 2006 2:09 PM PST

I currently have to use 5 different remotes just to turn on my 32" LCD flatscreen, and run it through the cable box, 2 vcr's and a dvd player. I have heard about a universal remote that can be programed in by using your computer, but don't want to pay hundred's of dollars. It's very frustrating for family members or babysitters who are at our house, as they can never figure out how to turn anything on, plus the aggreviation of trying to keep track of all of them. Anyone have any suggestions out there, that could simplify our remote problem without breaking our pocketbook? Thanks
