You better hope so. I don't think too many devices have RF receivers for remote control... they generally all work on IR.

All of my TV/TAPE/DVD components are on a powerstrip so when they are off, they are really OFF. It's amazing how much power they use over a year for ease of pressing a remote to turn them on.

I got this remote about a month ago from Sears. I got it on sale, it was only $7 when I picked it up, but this is still a good deal.
It's not that the buttons have to be pressed very hard - there's a red LED at the top that lights up when any button is pressed. The LED will light up, but nothing will happen. Especially the OK button. It'll take 4-5 presses before it registers frequently when in the DVD menu.
Other than that, I've been very happy with it. Of course, it replaces the remote of my TV (whose own remote's power button stopped working, and the power button on the TV itself fell off from overuse as a result). I still had the TV remote, so I was able to use the Learn function to teach this remote everything I cared about as far as my TV goes.
It also does an adequate job of replacing the remote to my 15 year old Phillips DVD/Audio center device, the remote to which was lost 2 moves ago. Because I didn't have the remote to this to teach the new remote, I have to jump through hoops to turn the device on remotely, but the other basic functions to navigate work. It won't do advanced things like switch between surround sound and stereo without being programmed, but that's to be expected.
Life is like a box of chocolates, the good stuff's all gone, the rest will go eventually.
