Shield RF upgrade to different remote due to volume control sensitivity.
 
I have been using the Shield 2017 for about a year now as a SageTV client. The volume control function is the most annoying thing ever made! The volume changes at the slightest touch of the remote, almost seems like the air movement when your hand is near it changes the volume. I want to flush it down the toilet!!

I have been trying to find a "simple" replacement to use as a TV Remote, not an air mouse etc. I tried the harmony remotes and they were at best, not ready for primetime. The most amazing feature of those was the newest programming software being from a decade ago.

As that newer shield is RF only, has anyone found a tv remote that can control it? I have ordered a few from Amazon and none worked as a remote at all. They all had air mouse in their description. All said they would control a shield, but they appear to mean the older IR version only.

Thanks, Bill

I also did not enjoy (hated is a better description) the Shield's remote. So, based on feedback from others using the Shield as a miniclient, I got the Harmony hub with remote at $62 on Amazon. (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1)
It uses Bluetooth to connect with Shield. I can't recall exactly how to get it all setup (assigning buttons); but it's not that difficult and searching this forum would help with that.

I also bought one of these. I liked it so much I bought two more for two other rooms. I love the simplicity of the remote.
