Universal remote codes for Philco digital to analog converter box
I have a Philco DTV digital to analog converter box and recently broke the remote. Soooo, I thought that a universal remote might be the answer. I need to program the code onto my philips universal consolidator but can't find the code. Can anyone help me?

U need to contact the manufacturer of your universal remote for the code if they have one. May be academic since most universal remotes only have the most basic of functions to control and the special keys that your converter box have might not be there.
Check out ebay for a good , used, cheap remote for the Magnavox.
RCA's site list codes
25 and 006 for Magnavox cable boxes. Maybe one of these will work for the converter. The RCA site has a link so you can look up codes. Click on "find your remote control codes here" and pick your model number, then the type of device you want to control. If the codes I gave don't work, maybe try some of the other brands of cable box codes. You might find one that will work.
Not a complete solution, but, around the last page (pg. 14) of your converter box manual there are codes listed for universal remotes. I happen to have a Philips remote that is listed. My code to control my dtv box is 0354. It appears that they have all codes listed for all Radioshack model universal remotes. I would suggest getting a Radioshack remote for Your "Digital Stream" (Radioshack) dtv box...
Can I use my Universal Remote Control to operate the converter box? Yes, follow the guidelines below for the different Universal Remotes and Converter Boxes sold at RadioShack. Digital Stream Digital to Analog Converter Box (Model DTX9900, SKU 15-149)
