Happen to have one of this Universal Remote bought from Gaint few months back at about $15 or so to replace my TV/DVD/VCR remotes all at the same time.
Learnt from the web that the infra-code of the D50 remote is similar to Sony and JVC devices.
Confirm & chopped. Now I have a TV/DVD/VCR/D50 remote that could fire my D50 across the room
Here are the Details:
Brand/Model: PowerPac RM-1001 Universal Remote
Code to program: 298 or Sony VCR
Activation Button: Play
I am happy now, I got another use for my remote.
Just to share.
