I read the reply below to someone with a similar issue, I would rather program the ATT uverse remote (S10-S3?) for use with my Onkyo HTS5200 receiver, but if I have to buy a new remote control, the Logitech harmony 200 only controls 3 devices; with a receiver, I need 4 devices minimum.
The Logitech harmony 300 is $86; very expensive. Where may I buy a remote for $30 that works?
Can you recommend a remote that works with uverse and has codes for common consumer devices that is less expensive or an update regarding how I can program my uverse remote to work with my receiver?
The code I'm using turns the receive on and controls the volume but won't turn off the receiver.

calibiz - Your timing is terrible. The model 300 just went way up in price. But, I see there are still some on e-bay for 30-40. The 300 kind of was the remote of choice for low cost ones, so I do not know of others. You do have to be very careful though, most of the inexpensive ones do not support U-verse.
You say you want at least four devices. You need to consider the more expensive Harmony models - think $100. Check out the website & watch for deals. Previously Costco and BJs had deals. Logitech and newegg.com may have deals on refurbs.
Here is a deal at newegg.com - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16880111037
Radio Shack lists it for $10 more.

Try the RCA RCRP05BR 5 Device Cable Replacement Universal Remote. It's a JP1 learning remote and already knows the U-verse codes. If necessary you can teach it codes from other remotes, and it can even be reprogrammed with the proper hardware/software. It's available from amazon for under $15.
