    "Won't go missing" - a very naiive way of thinking!

    Re: Projector Remote Replacement

    How about one of these?

    It is a lockable steel box which you mount to the wall and place the remote control in. It has a mirror on top to deflect the signal and the front has holes in so you can press the buttons on the remote.

    Could be useful?

    Re: Projector Remote Replacement

    what you could get is a pixie controller. it would need to be fitted in by an AV installer and you will need one of the sanyo pro x projector remotes but they fix on the wall so they dont go walkies. very robust but cost £130. can be reprogrammed at a later date if you change projector as well. so not a complete waste of money. you will need a pro x remote though because you need one to programe the pixie unit.

    We bought a huge programmable one off eBay. It's the size of a brick It also has LCD screen and stylus.

    I trained it with the single remaining remote, and it works like a dream, has all the functions of the original.

    Hi Guys,

    4 years have passed since this thread was started, just wondering if anywon has actually found a company who make a universal projector remote - that isn't the logitech harmony?

    We've found Insight UK (Deals at Insight UK) to be good for good value on replacement originals

    I have used one of these and it works, also believe they will let you return it if it doesn't work.

    I use KPMS and they are pretty good. They usually answer the phone straight away and are prompt with emails. They often have the price for most products off hand, so no need to wait ages for a quote as I have had to with other companies such as Roche etc.....



    They can get supply pretty much any replacement remote at a pretty good price. They can even get bespoke remotes for specific projectors with specific buttons with specific functions....

    They even do a remote recoiler and coiled remote cables so you can secure your remotes to the wall/desk etc.

    BenQ remotes are like gold dust. PB2250 remotes (at reasonable prices) are near impossible to find. If anyone knows of a good "universal" remote that will work then i'd be grateful.

    I like the remote recoiler above - I'm tempted to put promethean pens on one (dont get me started on the nibs going missing. Epoxy is your friend)
