I purchased the DVD Video recorder as a display model. They were unable to find the original box and or the remote to go with the machine. We have a universal remote but I can not get all of the features to work that are needed to run the divice properly. So I am looking for a place to purchase the original remote for this unit if it is possible to do so.

You haven't told us what is the model of the remote you are now using it so we can't know what are its stored set of controls and if the one for the new box are between them.
But there is another possibility: a so called learning remote - a remote that can learn the commands from an original remote. So if your present remote is a learning one - almost surely is, since there are no universal remotes designed with codes for door opening or thermostat changing - then all the persons helping you will have to do is to program the new remote's commands in it the way they programmed the other unusual commands, so no need for a preprogrammed set and its 3-digit entry code.
Thanks for posting to Fixya and it is my pleasure to guide you.

VCR/DVD Recorder; I have connected the TV to my VCR or DVD Recorder via SCART but it is not recording. In addition to connecting via SCART, you should connect the aerial cable from the wall socket to your VCR/DVD Recorder and another aerial cable from the VCR/DVD Recorder to the TV." Also; "Check the DVD is a region 2 disc - to change the region of the DVD player, refer to section 'Changing Regions'.

You can not record to a DVD, according to their manual. That is why you get the no disc error. It does not have the play sector at the beginning of the DVD. You can record to USB Flash Drive however.
USB RECORD - DIGITAL/FREEVIEW MODE Built into this television is a USB record facility. This function is available in Digital/Freeview mode when used in conjunction with a compatible USB memory stick or USB Hard drive. The benefi ts of this are as follows: • Pause live TV/Radio and then playback, fast forward and rewind (up to live TV) • One button record, if you decide you want to record the current programme • Easy programmable recording from the 7 day TV Guide • Record TV/Radio and watch/listen back on your computer/laptop Due to the nature of the product, it is necessary to use a high speed USB memory stick (as the TV reads from and writes to the memory stick at the same time, some memory sticks may not be suitable). You can purchase high speed memory sticks from some computer stores, alternatively, we have a selection of tested and compatible memory sticks available to purchase directly from the helpline/web site. These are available in 4GB, 8GB and 16GB. (Please check the web site/helpline for latest specifications and prices). End Quote

If you are unable to access the TV menu using the buttons on the TV itself it is possible you can with the TV2 remote if it still controls the volume etc. for this TV. If it doe not you will need to find a code for your set in the manual for the receiver or you can go to the following link to find that info as well.http://tech.dishnetwork.com/departmental_content/TechPortal/content/tech/receiver/625.shtml Assuming you have control of the volume still press the small TV button on the top left of the remote. Now press the menu button and you may be able to access the TV's menu. If so you need to run a channel scan/auto program the TV. You may need to use the buttons on the TV still to maneuver through the menu. If you are still unable to access the menu you may need to purchase a universal to access the menu.
there are some tv (sony) that you can get video and audio out from the tv and then is simple task to record what is in the tv. But maybe you don't have that option.
the second idea is this:
Think in the signal that comes from the box as a river and you need to divide this river (signal) before gets to the tv, so feeding the signal to the tv and the set you use to record then you have the option to record and watch the tv as regular; only task to do now is to monitor the recording in the input where you assigned for the dvd recorder. i hope is clear the idea to you!
Right then, on the back of the virgin box there are 2 scart outlets, connect one scart from the TV scart port to the scart in on the DVD recorder, then connect one scart lead from the scart out on the DVD recorder to the TV. Find the DVD recorder source channel on the TV and then use the DVD remote control to find the digital input on the DVD recorder, this is usually AUX channel. Post back if you need any more help
