I have a visually  impaired mother who uses a large remote.  He cable company recently went all digital so we dropped her plan and I bought her an RCA DTA800B1 Digital converter box to get her signal directly off the airwaves.  The small remote that comes with the box is not usable for her so she needs to continue using her old remote.  I can't seem to find the correct code to make her remote work with the RCA converter box.  Does anyone know what code(s) work with this particular box?

Codes are dependent on remotes, not the stuff they work on. You'll need the remote's code info assuming it is even modern enough to have control capability of a converter box. You could also try the remote's code search function although this can be time consuming and tedious. If it doesn't have a converter box mode button I'd try cable then satellite modes.

I can control the RCA converter box with my old Panasonic TV remote with satellite code 106.  Code 808 may work with a Sony remote.
