How would I go about making a universal IR remote for different items? Answered

Basically I have got to many remotes in my house for turning on and off different things like lights, radios, etc and I would like to have just one remote to control all of this, I looked around the website to try and find a resource that could help me create some device that I could capture IR codes with and then transmit them but had no luck and was just wondering if any of use could help me? Thanks

Trying to build your own remote may be a bit much and won't be as handy as a programmable remote. The oneforall steve linked to is great. So are these Logitech Harmony remotes. All of them are fully programmable or can learn functions using the existing remotes.

Google "Learning remote" for the DIY method, but you can buy them for a few dollars - ones like http://www.oneforall-int.com/en_UK/product/27/kameleon-8
