remote needed

Hi all, new to the forums but really enjoying reading them.  my  problam  is i have a Sony str db840 receiver but have lost the remote, i fear it fell off the arm of the sofa to the bin which i then transfered to the bin outside, doh, does anybody know were i might pick a replacement up from, second hand would be fine, would also be prepared to buy a non working amp just to get the remote.

Cheers

Re: remote needed

I suppose that you have a few other choices. Get a compatible universal remote or phone Sony's spares supplier and order a genuine replacement. I bought a demo Sony TV a few years ago which had surround speakers but no cabling. Bought the cables over the phone from the spares people. Wasn't cheap, mind.

Re: remote needed

Thanks for the reply voodoo, had thought about genuine replacement but as a last resort though as i will probably cost a bomb, hoping i might get a second hand one somewhere where the amps failed, doesn't really matter if it's not an excact match as all i want to do is alter the volume (down when wife walks in moaning about noise) then up again, do u know of any universals that will work sony amps

Re: remote needed

I should think all of them do. Could try emailing the manufacturer of the one that you think that you might buy to ensure it works first though.

Re: remote needed

You could try a second hand Phillips Pronto from eBay and the codes from remote central, have you any other Sony components as I believe that most of them are interoperable, my friends DVD remote also operates his TV and VCR.
