A universal remote should work with it just fine, it's the reason they are Universal ;). Provided the old remote was an IR one then any IR universal eg logitech harmony etc will work. How good the universal remote is at mapping the old buttons in the right place is another question entirely.

If you can put up with it for a time to await a decent deal on a Harmony then you should be well impressed with one if you have a lot of devices. Deals on the Harmony remotes seem to pop up quite regularly over the holiday period for some reason.

Open up your freesat remote, might just be a bit of carp in there?
Go on amazon and search humax foxsat remote. they do them for about £10. or £15 for original
