I just picked up an open-box RCA Scenium DRS7000N, but it is missing the remote. I know I can order one from Thompson, but I was wondering if anyone knows if any of the other RCA universal remotes will work with this thing out of the box (i.e. without teaching it the specialized PVR functions.

If Necessity is the mother of invention, then Laziness is surely the father.

I got it from a Circuit City that was not far from my home (but not the closest one...I checked there first!). Anyway, it was on clearance for $230. I asked if they had any left, and they said no. So I asked if they would take $180 for the floor model (it WAS missing the remote) and they said sure. This was Saturday, 12/27.

My advice is check Circuit Cities in your area if you are looking to pick one up. To my knowledge, these units have not been offered at Best Buy.

My Remote from my RCA 38" TV works with it when I hit DVD, I have not checked all of the buttons, but the main ones work. So buy an RCA universal remote and take it back if it does not work.

Call 1-800-338-0376 and order Remote Control RCR160DALM1 part number 257873.

The manual states that PVR functions will only work with the source remote, and that DVD functions will work with Universals.

Hope this helps :)
