So you lost your original remote (or it fell in the toilet)

An exact replacement remote will be easiest to use but may do significant harm to your bank account.

For example, you cannot add or remove channels from a typical Sony TV using the common universal remotes.

(From: Ed Ellers (edellers@delphi.com).)

Universal Electronics' "One For All" remote controls can reproduce these codes, and any others on any Sony TV (among others). Typically you'd press [MAGIC] and then 1-9-4 to add a channel or 1-9-0 to erase one; to start the auto program mode you'd press [MAGIC] and then 1-2-4.
