    Can you borrow a working unit for 10 or 15 minutes? Some of the better “one for all” universal remotes have a “learn” function – you point the two remotes at one another and the codes are copied as you press buttons on the donor.

        Thank god. You’ve obviously invented time travel. Now i go back and stop myself breaking the remote.

    Get/beg/steal a tablet or a phone with infrared. I’ve an LG 8.3. There is a universal remote app for it that has about a billion pre-built manufacturer and model settings. That’s just LGs app as well – there are a good few third party apps purporting to do the same thing, but I haven’t tried any so at your own risk.
    I rarely use the function these days though, as I swtiched to UPC and the new UPC remote does the volume/on-off/contrast/channel switching on my own ancient, cathode-ray Toshiba just fine, so if you were thinking of switching anyway, there’s always that.
    Those are my only two suggestions though, both of which, I admit, might mean shelling out (unless someone has an older IR phone/device they are willing to give you – Palm Pilots aren’t worth anything anymore and most of them had IR)…..I don’t think you can buy a replacement anymore though….

    Thanks for the help. I know a asking for help might be weird or strange and yes iv heard of Google. The problem is that the model of HDD only seems to work with the replacement control made for it. Iv used apps and universal remotes. They DONT work.

    don’t know the model but there is a toshiba remote for Android available in the play store that may work for you.

        If your TV has a USB port and I’d assume it does, just connect the media player to it with a USB cable and you’ll be able to control it with your TV remote.
