    Generic Projector Remotes?

    I know there are some available but has anyone used one and do they work? We now need about 4 remote's and blimey they're a rip off! So was hoping to pick up generic ones cheaper.

    Cheers for any info!

    We use Wallis-Universal for spare/replacement remotes.. contact there is John Evans. Wallis UK - Specialist distributor of Remote Controls, Replacements and LCD/Plasma TV supports.

    Good service, cheaper than original remotes, but I guess it depends on how cheap you are looking for.. a remote for a Sanyo CXVM is £30 for example.

    Cheers, I've been in contact with them before and their prices seemed reasonable.

    We get them cheap from the Audio Visual company we buy our projectors off, they are usually second ofcourse from projectors that they have scrapped but thats fine for me.

    We have programmed these:

    Car Universal Steering Wheel Remote Control Learning | eBay

    Program up using the remotes that still exist and then cable tie the cradle to the back of the monitor. don't give the teachers lots of buttons to mess up the configuration of the projectors
