Does it count if I'm in the garage every day, and my 1050 is in service out there?

I'm in a bit of a pickle at the moment though.. I lost the remote, and since the volume knob only works in the *increase* direction, I'm scared to touch it! (Sucks that a cheap universal remote can't be made to run the 1050 if I'm reading correctly)

You can use a universal remote; for example, the Model 1050 is in Logitech Harmony's database. If you feel mechanically inclined, I've also included our link for removing the oxidation that can build up on the volume control.

Semi thread necro... I still have my trusty 1050 to this day and it's still going strong. The only thing not working is the infamous front panel volume knob...

I have it hooked up exactly as I did when I first set everything up... except now the primary input is my HTPC via optical TOSLink rather than the parade of previous input iterations of VCR, Blu-Ray, ReplayTV, WD Live, Rio Receiver, SqueezeBox, Boxee, etc. over the years.

The only thing that is really starting to cramp my style is the fact I have no HDMI switching, which is what may finally cause me to make the investment into a 975 and 7140 to join the 21st century. I have to admit, I think I got my money's worth out of the 1050 since my paltry $499 investment back in November 2002!

HDMI was the main push for me to upgrade to the 975 from my 1050, too. I need to find a decent pair of speakers and set the 1050 up in the computer room for music. I've been meaning to do so for a couple of years now but just never seem to get around to finding them. I suppose I'm waiting to stumble upon a bargain. smile

Well, I found some good speakers but instead of setting it up in the computer room, I replaced our front L/R in the home theater. The small ones we'd been using have now moved to the bedroom TV and the 1050 has come out of retirement! It's now doing easy time providing much improved sound over the built in speakers in the ol' Sony LCD. We are now daily users of the 1050 again!
