    Just got my Denon 1804 reciever the other day and it's great. I'm fairly pleased with the remote it came with, but unforntunately it has no enter button when in TV mode which makes channel changing a real pain in the ass. I really can't rationalize spending anymore than $75 at the most and it's really important that I can set it up so no matter what mode I'm in the volume controls will always send a signal to the reciever.

    It's a bit over your $75 limit and it may be overkill if you're only going to control two components, but it really is a great device with room to grow. They also have a cheaper model that doesn't control as many components that works pretty well too.

    MX-500 is nice, but I think it's gonna end up being closer to the $100 range: http://www.buy.com/retail/product.asp?sku=90127891&loc=111&sp=1

    Check out: http://www.onecall.com/PID_22372.htm for the $100 pirce range too.

    Sony RMVL1000 can be had for a little under $75: http://ww1.onecall.com/PID_15007.htm

    How about a Radioshack one for all plus JP1 cable?
    This RF remote with LCD: http://www.remotecentral.com/ureview/80.htm for $30 plus the JP1 cable for $15 may be all you need...if it does all you want, then no need in spending alot :)
