Remote control for digital converter box

My RCA remote that came with our DT A800B Digital Converter box quit working....can I get a 'universal remote' off a store shelf that will work with the converter box?

    It is the RCA box that WalMart offered to go with the Govt. coupon program.

    I did not know if I would have to go directly to RCA and hope to get another...or if a universal will work. I will check out Radioshack and see what the deal is.

    Thanks for your assistance!

    My RCA DTV converter remote quit working as well. The LED on the top stays lit at all times. I called RCA and they told me to go through a sequence of removeing batteries, holding the #1 button for so many seconds and thinking happy positive thoughts... None of that worked and they knew it would not. It was a ploy hoping that I would not bother to call back. RCA said that they may have me send it in for repair which is laughable. I am calling back to demand a replacement.

What brand is your digital converter box? Samsung

It does appear that universal remotes made before these boxes existed accept pre-existing codes.

Here is the Radioshack FAQ for Digital TV converters that they sell:

I have a sunkey digital converter box no remote can i use my rca universal on this box


You can try. Use code search on your RCA remote to find something that handles some or all functions. If a search through all codes stored in the remote fails, you may have to try a different universal remote. All universal remotes do not contain all possible codes.
