It would be easy task - get learning remote with JP-1 connector and PC ...
Get a Harmony One and program what you want to turn off and on.
Waaayyyy back in the day I used to repair electronic calculators and I don't think keyboards (or remote controls) have changed much since then.
There was a circuit board with tracks over each "button" which was a rubber piece that pressed on the circuit board to complete the connection. Rarely did the conductive surface on the rubber wear off but it DID often get "insulated" by dust or other contaminants in the air.
The fix was to rub the circuit board and the conductive rubber pad with denatured alcohol using a clean lint-free cloth (like the kind sold to clean eyeglasses).
Heck, any programmable remote will do that. It doesn't have to be a Harmony. It's a nice remote but not the only game in town.
