Can someone tell me if the remote control from MDR533H/F7 work on the older 2160? My remote control fast reverse button stop working but I found a remote control for the MDR533H/F7 on eBay and is wondering if it will work for my older2160A model?

If not, can someone tell me where to purchase a replacement cheap? Thanks

It will work.

 

Here's some info on a Philips SRP-Series Universal Remote that works nicely with Phil.Mag HDD recorders, and it controls TV volume as well.

So the MDR533H/F7 work on the older 2160A recorder? I rather stay with Magnavox if I can but it is nice to know that there is a cheap option.

Thanks for the reply, you are always the first person to answer my question when I run into trouble and I really appreciate. Thanks again.

All Mag HDD DVDR remotes work on any of the 6 generations, but not on the 2 Philips predecessors (357x) models.

 

IMO only, the 513 remote is not as good as the 515/53x remote which is still available... it's still got some things that could be better, but then...

 

See Section 11 on 1st page of Sticky thread for info on sellers and price.

All the Magnavox HDD/DVD remotes are compatible between the various models.

One of my 2160 remotes has the same problem with the fast reverse function.

I opened that remote and cleaned the pcb and the button membrane (as I've read that usually corrects the problems) but that function still doesn't work. With a Sharpie pen I marked the fast rewind button with a slash so I'll know which of the remotes has the problem.

Might the fast reverse function be a common glitch with the 2160 remote?
