With Respect

I am unable to set Timer Recordings or change the mode from SLP to SP on my Magnavox DVDR with the universal remote I have.

When I posted about this I got a recommendation to get a UEI made universal remote.

Has anyone actually had experience of being able to do those things on a DVDR with such a remote?

Yours Sincerely

Not all UEI made remotes are built the same what brand and model number of universal remote did you get? Modern remotes don't have codes for devices no longer made like the DVDR.

I would get a universal remote that dates back to time dvdr were popular, look on ebay for One-For-All urc-6690 hybrid remote. It has the biggest library of codes a universal ever had. This remote was released with urc-6820, 8820, and 10820. Those three have had updated versions with much small library of codes. The 6690 was never updated.
