I have a sound bar hooked up to my TV via optical audio cable. I can easily set my volume to output from the soundbar, but can’t control with my TV remote. I’d like to get down to 1 remote for ease of use. I have a chromecast hooked up to this TV.
It seems that I need to find a universal remote that can have the volume “locked on another programmed device” or something similar. I don’t have any other components that I use often on this TV (DVD player), so I don’t want to spend $70 on a logitech.
The Harmony Remotes are considered the best IMO.
Check this one out. It’s no harmony, but may suit your purposes. It has some nice features for its price tag.
I understand that harmony remotes are awesome, but I only have two devices I want to control. Very simple.
@KyleR thanks for the link. I may order it.
You may want to check and see if you have any Radio Shacks by you going out of business. I picked up a Harmony 650 for 50% off. I got it for $40.00 dollars. Can’t beat that price & it has to be one of the best remotes I have ever had.
