Check out the newly updated list of OFA remotes and see if anything strikes your fancy. UEI still has some pretty good models in the lineup, especially the Xsights (12, 15 or 18 device), OARUSB04G and Inteset INT-422 (8 device with JP1 cable, 4 device otherwise).
As I'd expect we are on the same page, looking for other OFA alternatives.
I tried the OARN08G and it has too many subjective drawbacks for me; slippery surface, poor button layout, buttons 'click' when pushed.
I found the RCA RCRP05BR on sale for less than $5 and bought a few. It's now the standard remote for my AV systems, although it would be better with more devices. Maybe I should buy a few more and stockpile them.
My tin foil fixes have never lasted more than a few months. It's a losing battle.
Thanks for the info, I won't bother any further.
Did you ever try any of the epoxy paints? I tried rear window defogger repair paint once and that had a very short life before failing again.
