Today I got a Toshiba HD-DVD A-3 for $69.00 I couldn't pass this up, however it was missing the Remote control and the plug. I sucessfully got the plug, however i could not get a code to work on the 8-1 remote fom radio shack to work. It says I can input any code I want so my question is-does anyone know the code for the remote? Thanks in advance....
I dont know whats in there but its weird and pissed off!

How old is whatever model of Radio Shack remote you're using? Remember, HD-DVDs are new devices and won't be in older code databases.

Well I just talked to Toshiba on the phone. Apearently since i just bought this player even as is, its still under warrenty. They are sending me a brand new one for free. I did email them and this is the response.....

Dear John,



Thanks for writing!



Regrettably, we do not have any information about what code number or even whether or not a universal remote will work one of our products. That is, we do not know if the frequency on which our products operate will "translate" into a code number in another brand's remote or an after-market universal remote. Our remotes are pre-programmed at the factory to work our products automatically, so there is no "code number" by which they operate or need to be set up.



Other remotes will have codes for different brands of products. In the remote's instructions, if "Toshiba" is listed under the product that you're trying to control, then the codes given for Toshiba would each need to be checked in order to see which, if any, are the frequency to which your particular product will respond. If there is no response, then I recommend you contact the manufacturer of the remote to see if they have another code that will work or a search method to find a working code.



If you want to replace the original remote please visit the link below. This will allow you to locate a distributor nearest you.

Amazing. There's not apparently anything wrong with the unit and they're replacing it. I hope they send you one with a remote!
Regrettably, blablabla...Our remotes are pre-programmed at the
factory to work our products automatically, so there is
no "code number" by which they operate or need to be set
up.

In other words, they have no part in whether a Radio Shack remote will work. You should have called the Shacklets because it's their remote that needs the code.
Other remotes will have codes for different brands of
products. In the remote's instructions, if "Toshiba"
is listed under the product that you're trying to control,
then the codes given for Toshiba would each need to be
checked in order to see which, if any, are the frequency
to which your particular product will respond. If there
is no response, then I recommend you contact the manufacturer
of the remote to see if they have another code that will
work or a search method to find a working code.

By the way, they're not using the word "frequency" correctly. Yes, the frequency of the code matters, but they use the word as if the frequency is the only issue. That's like saying you can read any book on the planet if the ink is black. Well, no. All the other details of the code have to be correct, too.
A good answer is easier with a clear question giving the make and model of everything.
