That's what I've done - 16 possible key presses (ID1-8, both have ON
OFF), with just 6 relays
That would also work for a battery powered remote control but you have to
careful on powered equipment as it doesn't provide isolation.
You can actually get clever and use a crosspoint matrix chip as well
all remote controls usually have their keys wired into a matrix. That way
you can press any button with a minimum of logic lines
16 key 4x4 matrix = 4 lines + enable
32 key 4x8 matrix = 5 lines + enable
64 key 8x8 matrix = 8 lines + enable

I've done this using both the CD4016BC and CD4066BC quad bilateral
switches. Both supplied as standard 14-pin DIP with 4 switches per
package. Both run from 5 volt power and are switched by standard
5-volt logic signals.

it and bring out the button contacts to then link to a number of relays.

pretty noisy, especially if the remote needs a key sequence.

anyone can recommend?
