Other than using a learning remote I have never found any code from any inexpensive universal remote manufacturer (RCA, GE, One-for-All, Sony, Philips, Magnavox, etc. - the most commonly available) to operate any function on the Magnavox box - even the simple on and off function.
Perhaps the new Funai converter boxes use newer control signals not activated by older remote codes used with universal remotes.
A quick look at the twelve pages of codes supplied with Philips universal remotes lists three codes (0259, 0862, 0565) for Magnavox under SAT/DTV/WebTV; whereas an older RCA universal remote lists one code (5085) for Magnavox (the same for Philips) under Satellite; and one code for Magnavox (5025) and three codes for Philips (5025, 5011, 5012) under Cable (perhaps a cable converter box).
Have you tried the search function on your universal remote?
