I understand. It just so happens that many dongles come with remotes whether you use them or not and are about the same price as a dongle alone, so I don't see the harm in it. The remote just goes straight into a drawer and is never touched again.
You'll just have to do some searches at remotecentral.com or rely on the kindness of strangers. I don't have an HP dongle, so I can't test one nor do I know the codes. I do know the codes for some of the other models I posted.
Trying to get this to work with your current remote is going to require more research on your part. I'm willing to help, but you'll have to do the research. So again, identify a dongle you're willing to buy, and either find a compatible setup code or find compatible pronto hex. Posting the hex will enable me to determine the setup code, if you can't find it elsewhere. I've posted my best guesses if you want to take a chance and buy the HP dongle and try it. But I can't guarantee it will work. I've posted ones you'll want to avoid, so that narrows it down a bit.

True, that verifies something is being transmitted. But you'd need super human powers to decode the signal by looking at it. I use the IR Widget and IR Scope to capture and analyze IR signals. It works beautifully. If anyone has a harmony and a widget or a URC remote, we could solve the OP's problem immediately.
