    If you thought about buying an NFL remote, they are now at a reduced price of $21.95 with free shipping. It might be because they are replacing them with the newer RC65 remotes later this year. If this one has the codes you need, its a great deal, since they are back-lit and RF capable. Mine is on the way!

    What will the differences be between the RC64 & the RC65?

    I read in another thread that it will have more setup codes. Did a quick search and you can read about it in this link: RC65 It looks the same as the RC64.

    Thanks - I've been waiting for the price to drop to get me a Lions remote (ok - I thought they might pay me to take it off their hands). My wife got a Broncos one last year so it is my turn this year.

    Kinda OT, but any word if the RC65 will have codes for BluRay players? I didn't see anything listed in that pdf linked by RACJ2 (thanks for that, by the way!).

    Also OT, but why would anyone buy a sub-standard remote, that comes with $15 of NFL license fees built into the price?

    The build quality of these is excellent....and mine has worked like a charm for a year now...especially during the NFL season. :D

    The price is not that much different than the regular remotes....apparently not a big deal as the first batch sold out in weeks last year for many teams.

    It looks like it has the Steelers black and gold colors with a Packers emblem. Is it just the colors are off in the picture?

    The colors are indeed a bit off, as it is a dark green and gold - Packer colors....the lighting plays tricks on these sometimes...

    Tempting, but, unfortunately, we don't yet have a professional football team in Houston (well, except when the Cowboys are in town).

    The NFL remote cost the same as the standard RC64BF remote with RF antenna ($30) that DirecTV sells. Considering you got the exact same thing, but with the logo of your NFL team, I don't see that as a bad deal.

    Considering that you now get the same remote for about 2/3 of the cost is an even better deal.

    I've been enjoying my Packer remote for a year now.

    I will be enjoying it even more when I can {down arrow} and switch buffers!!

    Sorry, but even when Cowboys are there, you still don't have a professional football in town. :)
