I'd stay clear of the JVC's.
As would I, and the Konkas and other such house brands. Veon would be the only house brand I'd consider, but then again only if they provided some damn discrete IR input codes!
Yup the JVC 1 year warranty is rubbish. Veons at least have some recourse over 3 years without the retailer pushing back.
Not sure about discrete IR, I've had trouble learning off the included remote for our 19 inch Veon. Haven't tried with the 32s.
