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
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  # 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/col...r-digital-stream-converter-box-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
That helps me. My remote OK button stopped working and unable to rescan tv. I have the same model number box. I tried the website also and found out it was dead. Was going to call the 800 number to see if that works. But your post saves me the time and trouble.
