Hi: I need a new remote for the 2000 series Replay unit. Want the original style, not programmed RS. I suppose I can get one from Panasonic but I thought there might be some lurking about here.

Thanks

I bought mine for my show-stopper since my remote went to the same place as odd socks go. I got it from Panansonic and it was $50 :-(


Has anyone found a "universal" remote or X!0 remote that has the 'codes' built in. A learning remote will be the best solution but only if you can "BORROW" an original. I'd buy a learning remote and go to best buy or CC and use one of theirs to learn the codes ;)

Universal Electronics announced Wednesday that consumer electronics maker Sonicblue is using its remote control technology in ReplayTV 5000 digital video recorders. The DVRs will come with a remote control and embedded connectivity software allowing them to send commands to cable and satellite set-top boxes.

Cypress, Calif.-based Universal Electronics provides manufacturers with a database of infrared codes for more than 130,000 functions for devices from 1,500 consumer electronics brands.

It seems all the new (and cheap) Phillips Magnavox universal remotes have Replay codes built right in. It has all the pre-4000 codes, but doesn't have commercial advance, bypass or PVR/DVR (like anyone actually uses it). Anyhow, the cheap models run about $10 and the ones with learning run about $15+. I've seen these at CC, Walmart and Target (and I'm sure BB, but I haven't looked).

Not sure, but with their popularity I'm sure most 4K users will pay you to take them off their hands :)

I bought the "one-for-all" model #8910 from hififorless.com It was $26.99. (the exact model sells for $59.99 @ circuit city) It works great with my pv-hs2000. It learned the "quick-skip" pronto, and works better than the old original remote.

Kinda on/off topic, I have a feeling that my girlfriend is gonna get me a Home Theater Master MX500. For any of you that have it, what functions did you assign to which buttons? i.e. Did you leave as record or exit?

My wife pushed me into getting from 7 remotes down to 1. The Home Theater Master MX500 does it all and well. You'll be happy.


I programed the LCD area with quckskip, input, record, skip comerial (on/off), Replay Guide (recorded shows).

i also just got the one4all URC 8910 - because I ran out of memory on my RCA 810. Both had pre-programmed codes that work with my Replay 4504. I only had to learn a couple buttons onto them.


The 8910 is nice, cause you can move buttons that are pre-mapped to other buttons w/o having to waste learning space. Its also got 2 FF and 2 Rev (used by CD players as track advance and reuglar FF) - so I mapped those extra FF & Rev as Commercial advance & instant replay. Had to stick the replay guide button on the menu button though.
