Have you tried (what seems to be) the official Panasonic parts store, panasonic.encompass.com? It's not cheap, but odds are pretty good they may be able to get you one sooner or later. I just...

Well tried those couple things and no ultimate success. Seems I'm stuck around 40 favorites, maybe 41, before the favorites icons start turning into numbers; 42 is too many. Had 50 going fine at...

Thanks I will try these things out. (I think I might have tried something like the SLV-N750 at one point, but not sure I was doing things right at the time.) Just sent them an email.

Turns out the 5805ci came with a different remote, the RC-1036.

Any idea whether this would work fine with the 5805mk2?
