In April of '06 I was looking for a remote that was the end-all and cheap and found out about JP1 for the first time. I was lucky and found a 15-1994 on Ebay for $26. That was the easy part. After a month or so of research and self education on the whole JP1 thing I got it configured just right. So far I'm running about 9 devices (some of the 7 function buttons control multiple devices) and have maxed out the memory (learned, moved and utilized codes). I'm very happy with this remote. The feel, backlight and layout are perfect IMO.
Robman, I do have one question for you. Where can I find a link to a pre-made 15-1994 button layout worksheet? I found one (PDF format I believe) when I first started however I can't for the life of me locate it on my HD (or on the web).
If you've seen one of these, this may jog your memory, it has a 3 remote (side by side) layout template per page with these lines above each remote graphic: NAME:_______________ (of the device) CODE:_______________ (for the device) KEY: (the 8 device keys) 1S:_________ 2S:_________ etc. etc.
If you recall seeing this or know where the link is, let me know.
