Question about RCA Remote Controls
I have a remote to a RCA digital converter box. The signal indicator light stays on and it doesn't control the box. I don't know what to do to the remote. The batteries are good. I don't have to code numbers. Can you help me?
What is the model of the remote?

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:

Try the RCA codes listed in the code book that came with your Dish remote. You will want to use the "AUX" button at the top of the dish remote. You will likely NOT get full functionality if it works at all, however, there is a chance you'll be able to change the channels and power the converter box on and off.
If the codes you have are segregated into categories of different devices, i.e. TVs, DVD players, etc. You probably will not be successful.
Also, there should be instructions in the remote manual that will tell you how to search all codes that are stored in the Dish remote.
While this may not solve your problem, I hope I've given you helpful information that will allow you to make an informed decision as to where to go from here.
Let me know if I can be of further assistance.
