    Default Need a replacement remote control for converter box

    My dog destroyed my remote control for my converter box. Is there a remote that I can buy to replace the remote or do I need to purchase a brand new box? I'd prefer to replace the dog actually. LOL.

    Thanks

    Yes, destroyed it completely. He's normally a good dog, but I think he had mistaken the remote for a bone.

    Question

    does the universal remote for the converter box also have a channel scan on them?

    The universal remote should give you access to the menu, where the channel scan functionality will be found in one of the sub-menus

    Default missing remote

    I brought a converter box at the local good will but there was no controller i just goggle the converter box remote and was able to purchase one on line, I prefer to use the OEM remote in stead of the universal remote you may be able to use a universal remote if you can find the ""code"" you need

    Just do a general search for "replacement remote control". Sometimes you can find originals as well.

    I've tried 2-3 universal remotes from WalMart etc and haven't been able to get any to work. The website for the converter box I bought is "dead" [http://www.dsconverter.com/] so I finally did the old-fashioned thing and phoned the 800 [866] # on my box. THAT worked. The man told me the best way to get a guaranteed replacement for the box I got is to visit THIS website where the original remote is $14.99 which includes shipping.[ http://www.getmyelectronics.com/coll...model-dtx9950]. And for those more adept and getting universal remotes to actually function with your analog>digital converter box, the correct code for my box is "0354". That code WAS accepted by the remote but still didn't get 3 different remotes to work the converter. I didn't find this solution anywhere so hopefully my post will save many others the time/trouble. -ben in OH

    How do you program the remote?. Which button do you push(i.e. tv, cable, dvd,etc.)?
