Got my Refurb PVR-9200T. Nice bit of kit. Except it doesn't come with a remote!!!!!. So I have a "Total Control" Universal remote which i hope will work, but i don't have the manuel for that, and i don't have the code for the humax, so i can't do anything until then :(. If I were to get a remote for it, do you recommend anything cheap and working well with it Any help would be brilliant.

My remote looks like this... argos.co.uk/sta…htm?_$ja=tsid:11527|cc:|prd:5341513|cat:home+entertainment+%3E+television+and+audio+accessories+%3E+television+and+audio+remote+controls

although after reading it, i don't think it will do a freeview box

I don't think you can tune your Humax in to the right local signal without it..........at least I couldn't figure out a way.

If you bought it from Humax refurbs then ask for the remote, they should have sent one with it. If you bought it elsewhere or was told there was no remote, you can buy the remotes from Humax or look on google shopping.

The Humax remote has some additional buttons (eg one which lists all items recorded) under a slide on the remote. Its the easiest way to display your list of recorded items and I use this button all the time.

I would buy a harmony, bit pricey but very good

Well if I email them it could take them ages to send it to me. Well its a refurb, if it doesn't work, then it is cheaper within 7 days than if I wait. Harmony, i would want the 525 which is expensive everywhere. Could just buy the humax one. But the harmony is so nice. To be fair on the website (humaxdirect) it doesn't say it comes with a remote. just thought it was self explanatory :).

Why don't you do the obvious and phone them. I'm sure they'll get you one posted out next day.

Just contact Humax, of course it should have a remote control with it.

Are you sure it isn't tucked away somewhere within the packaging?

Humax have excellent customer care.

totally agree - should defo come with a remote. Pretty useless without one!

I've emailed them. And yes, checked all over. Hasn't come with a disc either!!

It is infuriating, because if i choose to return it, then I have 7 days.

Why don't you just phone them and get one posted out for the morning. What do you mean no disc?.

I'm starting to think the thread is a wind up.

Emailed them before. They got back to me within 24 hours. I promise you, it isn't a wind up. Just don't feel the need to telephone unless it is an emergency.

I rung up in the end. Remote and User Manuel. Coming tomorrow. Cheers.

Only thing to watch out for is that sometimes the unit can be a bit unresponsive to remote commands eg you press the play button etc and nothing happens for 5 seconds other times its instant. Don't worry if your unit does this its pretty normal.
