The Radio Shack remotes on the list haven't been made for years anyway, and most Radio Shacks are out of business, so that's probably not the best choice these days. If you just want something cheap, a Comcast remote from ebay will be the cheapest ($3). If you want something nicer, Nevo C2 from ebay ($16) is best (doesn't use 994, but you simply load a file from a computer and you're done).
Most of the models listed in my post are obsolete since that post is 5 years old. I tried to post the common models at that time. They will still work, but are going to be somewhat hard to find. The RCA is still around but overpriced most places. Use the linked list instead to find a more current model.
Post the model you're considering, and I will confirm whether it will work or not. But basically if it has any 9xx command in the manual, it will work.
If you strike out on ebay or Amazon, I have many of the remotes on the list and can hook you up with whichever one you want, preprogrammed, so you don't have to do anything. Just PM me if you're interested in going that route.
I was hoping for something very cheap, and something I could program directly into the handset itself, rather than from a computer.
My EBAY first choice, based on lowest total as shipped price, was an Optimum URC1056 @ $6 (ad title also lists 1056B03, but the title page of the user manual shown just says URC1056)
Seems to have some 99X features because it lists
- Macro Key for Instant Tune-In of Your Favourite Channels
- Colour-Coded Keys to Quickly Locate Popular Functions
- Code Searching for a Device
- Code Checking
- Volume Lock
- Reassigning Device Keys
- Programming Channel Control Lock
- Memory Retainer - No Memory Loss in Case of a Battery Failure
- Help, Guide, Menu, and Mute Buttons
- Classic Black Colour with Multi-Coloured Keys
- Designed with UEI Technologies
- Uses 2 AA Batteries which are Included
- JP1 Connector
But Not sure if this is a real match to your list really or not, since you don't show just the URC1056 only the URC1056B01 and B03. I could ask them to confirm how they know this is a B03.
My backups were a TIME WARNER ATLAS OCAP 5-Device Backlit Cable Box Remote Control 1056B01 which is definitely on your list
and a comcast remote which is marked in the ad as JP1 Though this has no specific model number listed on it.
Now that I understand where the list is, I may search again to see if another one even cheaper may be available. Your list is VERY helpful!! THANKS!!!
Question - Where did you find the EFC codes for this magnavox recorder? Now that I understand these "special" keys/functions can be manually mapped using these types of remotes, I have other devices I've bought at yard sales etc, but when I get them home I find they all had somewhat unique remote codes and weren't listed in and general universals I've come across, at least not more more then basic power/volume, but rarley can get to any special features, if the brand is even listed at all. Vintage JVC stereo equipment for example, which seems to have a lot of special features on the remotes. Also a skyworth DVD-510P Karaoke DVD player . Both of which I would love to find the EFC codes and program up one of these remotes for each. But I have lots of CD/DVDs players & stereo all of which could use a remote for.
