Question Do DVD 'player' universal remote codes work for DVD recorders?

I'm interested in buying a DVD recorder / hi-fi VCR combo locally for cheap.

It's a Pioneer without a remote but my Harman Kardon AVR154 universal remote has codes for Pioneer DVD players, but doesn't specify recorders. Will it work? Never owned a recorder before.

Thanks.

I've had good luck buying used replacement remotes for 3 different DVD recorders (2 Panasonics and a Toshiba), via Ebay and one of the remote resellers on the web. They were each around 20 bucks and all work perfectly.

I've also programmed a new universal remote to work with my Sharp recorder, and it's OK for the basic functions. The problem arises when I want to set it up for timed recording. The buttons I need for some functions just aren't there on a universal.

A $3 cable TV remote will also perform every possible function for any recorder, including Sharp. Post the models and I can post a recommendation and all codes.
