I am interested in the URC 6420 or something similar.

These are, apparently, the models available in the US. Search on model number for where to buy.

It looks like the OARN05G is the only one that is a learning remote. Would you know if this is correct? Also, how would the OARN05G compare to the Chunghop SRM-403E?

Thank you in advance for any help,
yeto

It would appear the the OARN05G is indeed the only learning model.

With learning, with up to 50 available commands per device, code selection, macros and supporting 5 devices rather than 4, I would consider the OARN05G to be better than the 4 in 1, 32 button, learning only Chunghop SRM-403E.

N.B. The UK (my area) has a far wider selection of One for All models.

The URC-6420 is one of their SimpleSet remotes and can control 2 devices.  The 6430 and 6440 are 3 and 4 device remotes.  In the US, the sister remote to the 6440 is called the OARUSB04G, and it is available in lots of places.  The OARUSB03G is a 3 device remote, also available, but in fewer stores.  I don't think a 2 device version is available in the US.

To expand on what 3FG said, the OARUSB04G is by far the best option in the US. It's under $20 at Amazon and Wal-mart and can be expanded to 12 devices and programmed from a PC using Remote Master. Don't waste your time looking for the 2 and 3 device models.

The OARN05G is a terrible remote compared to the OARUSB04G. The Chunghop is worse still, with no built in codes or macro capability. The OARN05G has no backlighting and no JP1 capability. If you must have a $10 remote, look at the RCA RCRP05B instead. It's far more programmable and is available in many stores, as is the OARUSB04G. It's made by UEI, parent of the One-For-All brand, so works like other OFAs. The best IR OFA still available is the Nevo C2 ($16 on ebay at the moment). It's functionally and aesthetically equivalent to a $150 Harmony. It's twin is the Xsight Color which is reviewed in depth on this site, still on the front page in fact.

Most are learning, despite the lack of info on the web site. The beauty of OFA is they can be programmed without learning.

In any case, here are some more OFA models, if you're interested.

And here is a list of most programmable UEI (many are OFA brand) remotes made in the past several years.

Head over to hifi-remote.com/forums for much more info. That's where all the OFA experts hang out.

Wow, thank you for taking time to reply with all the helpful information. I will take your advice and explore all the options.
