Default Remote for remote controlled pot

Hi all, I'm planning on using this remote-controlled pot for my volume control:

altmustech - um-m481

I'm looking for the right Sony-compatible remote. Since the only functions I can use are +/- volume, on/off, mute, and sleep, I want to get a small, cheap, stripped-down remote that has as few extra functions as possible. I looked at this one - RM-EZ4 | Remote Control | Sony | Sony Store USA - but that doesn't seem to have a "sleep" button, and it has some extra buttons I don't need.

Any ideas? Thanks!

Hi eicos, I just received this kit and was looking for some more detailed information about it and thus I found your topic. I use my home Sony stereo system remote for it. But keep in mind that you need a remote with mute and sleep functions in order to use all functions of this volume control kit. By the way it is quite a good kit with high quality of assembling.

Hi incabin, thanks for responding! I think I don't care so much about the "sleep" function so I may well just use the above remote. It seems like you noticed the same thing I did about this device, which is that the link to the PDF datasheet is a dead end. Strange, huh? Have you figured out what sort of output it gives for the power on/off device?

What's the difference between mute and sleep?

Mute silences the audio by toggling a relay in the signal path. Sleep sets an timer, at the end of which the system automatically switches off.
