I finally found one that at least worked for the main features. It is a Philips URC from Walmart SRU3004. The guy there said Philips ones run the Ilo. After returning MANY ones that didn't work, I really didn't believe him but he was right. Its not the code listed, you have to do the manual search and it is like the 300th push on the power button so don't give up too soon. The input button operates the Source and the sleep button will get you into the record settings. you have to figure it out but allows you to actually use the unit. It is worthless without a remote. This remote actually works my tv, other dvd and home surround too.

Go to walmart and get a Philips universal remote, they have the ilo code listed. I have two of them...even though the remote isn't set up like the original ilo remote, you can still record, burn, finalize, and edit. I have the dvdrhd04...which is going into the shop tomorrow to replace the dvd burner, but the hard drive still works like a charm.
Again, you'll have to play with the remote a bit....ARC gets you into the menu and (.) while playing will get you into edit mode, but into another menu when not playing a recorded item. I've used it so much now that I can barely use the original remote. ha ha. The perk is that you can set up your dvd, your tv, digital box and other things to run on one remote.
Try the philips brand from walmart SRU3004 it works most of he features. Must do manual code search and use the input button for source and the sleep button to get to the recording settings. Must use the eject button from unit itself etc. It is limited but does work for mine. Its like the 300th push to the power button in the code search so don't give up too early. I'm still trying to see if it will do more, got mine yesterday. After dozens of universal remotes I've tried, I was excited to finally find one that actually worked!!!
I have several good suggestions on how to determine what the problem is, and if it's the remote control what to do about it. First off, if you think the remote control is broken, what I'd try first is try unplugging the television and replacing the batteries in the remote with new ones. I would leave the batteries and leave the tv unplugged for atleast a few minutes. If that doesn't correct the problem. You could take your remote to the store where they are still selling your exact television. If that's not possible than maybe its time to try purchasing a new remote. I would not recommend purchasing a universal remote, and go straight to finding a replacement remote that is the exact replacement for the remote that's broken. A site that's good is http://www.remotecontrolscenter.com/ and have a section specific to ILO Remote Controls.
You have the wrong firmware,or cd is corrupted.These Liteon recorders have had some issues with the timers.The 5005xa can actually be transformed into the Ilo R04.Look on internet the Wizard has free firmware for your unit, look for iLO R04 which is almost identical to your unit.
If the remote is broke they are easy to replace ,if the recorder is a 5005xa the remote is a clone to ones used in the iLO RO4,used ones can be bought on Ebay for $10 to $20.If it is 5005XSA use the Liteon Rm 51 remote.The Gateway AR 230 recorder and some of the Akai remotes are clones to the Liteon5005XSA remotes.
I think you are out of luck, unless you can find someone else who owns one, and will let you use their controller to program a learnable remote.
I have purchased, and returned dozens of universal remotes...not one has worked.
