Pioneer AVR remote question

Do Pioneer receivers all use the same remote protocol, going back years for example?

I recently purchased a used one off eBay and it's not coming with a remote. The factory remote for the model is quite simplistic, and clones are available for cheap. However I'm wondering can I use a previous model's remote which is more robust--hopefully netting some more remote commands/features at the same time?

Will pretty much any Pio AVR remote work, or did they change the IR protocol/commands for different years/models?

I know IP/app remote control will work but would like to have an actual physical remote anyway.

Thanks but that's really not going to help me. All manufacturer is going to say is "this is the remote for the receiver model you have, buy that one."

I just want to know if all/nearly all Pio receiver remotes work with all Pio receivers. For example you can take a Sony AVR remote from 1992 and use it on a Sony receiver model today, and it will work (granted there's something called the Command Mode which I won't get into but it will work). Same with their TVs.

Is the same true for Pioneer? That's what I'm asking.

Pretty sure it should be. Most companies have a few common IR patterns. That is how I think those universal remotes work

When I used to sell Pioneer many many moons ago the remote codes stayed the same for years... the same as you mentioned for Sony. As long as it's not a different technology you should be fine.
