    same issue...no way to open the remote to take a look inside, either.

    I have a similar problem, same make & model.

    I think a time delay from pressing a control button on the remote to the actual command being carried out is part of the problem. One tends to to think that they didn't press the button correctly and so press the button again, the unit then seems to freeze up.



    Other buttons seem to freeze the unit with one push, in my case the volume cotrol, the mute button and any of the numbered buttons.

    Remote control for our teac set top box HDB842 has frozen also. Our set up is only 3 months old. Replaced batteries, turned on and off but still not responding. Any ideas please.

I had the same problem and tried new batteries with no success until I had a close look at the terminals. One of the +ve terminals was rusted (Ithink a drink spill, hastilly wiped off). After restoring this terminal everything is now OK. Hope this helps.

Try looking at the infra red LED of the remote with a digital camera (eg. camera phone) while pressing a button. If the remote is working you will see it flash

I took my set top box back to the retailer and received a full refund. Had only had it for 3 months.

MTV MSTB767 instructions, user guide. manual. Set top Box


NOT a solution but some comments if anyone is searching

They are sold by Coles $29-49 depending on specials, mtv is nickelodeon/viacom generic product sourced wherever with little support. A decent cheap stb but thats it, you find them thrown out minus remote.

The remote is fragile, and costs nearly as much as the whole stb to replace. 1300366155 is support $20 for remote I think they said.
If you get one wrap it in rubber :-)

Another product sold next to them is:
The Coles MTV universal remote does not have a code for the STB so if you optimistically buy one at coles ,next to the MTV stb stack thinking it should work with the MTV stb, no luck silly fool.
The universal remote website doesn't respond, help line is disconnected.
The MTV stb helpline has nothing to do with the MTV universal remote product.
The MTV STB is decent, the MTV universal remote is robbery.

Just installed new tvonics250 freeview + box


Hi,

I have one of these boxes and one of the things which has caught me out a couple of times is that the remote can control three devices. To turn the Z250 on and off you may need to press the DTR button at the top of the remote first. When you press the on/off button on the remote the DTR button should light up red to let you know the signal is being sent to the Z250.

You are probably aware of this but just in case you weren't

Code for wharfedale dv823b


The codes come from your all-in-one remote control manufacturer. Check the manual or download a code from your remote manufacturer's site.

There may not be a code. Some remotes have a "guess" mode where you simply press "code", point the remote at the device, then scroll up or down using the "channel" button until the unit powers on or off. The remote will memorize the code after you select which device on the remote itself you wish to marry that code to.

Teac hdb820


I just did a factory reset this morning and I had the same problem until I realised that you have to use the "Output" button to get the Video Outputs to DVI Digital (see page 17 of the manual), if that's what your connection is, then I could select "menu" and do a channel search. Hope this helps.

LG LST-5100P set top box. Several times a day have


cap-grant, my friend has the same problem with set top box. When I phone maker I was told it is due to poor and weak signal. You must have 80% signal strength to maintain good picture. When signal strength dropped picture would freeze and had to be turned off at the power point to restart as nothing would work. So I guess what my experience says is you may need better aerial to boost signal and prevent dropout Leonard210
