    My Philips DTR500 set top box has stopped responding to the remote control, I was trying to get it to work with the satelite channel changer on my Toshiba HD/DVD Recorder and so switched it from the default 39 setting to 38 and now, its not responding at all to my remote, even though I have followed the manual instructions to the letter to get them to talk again.

    Now in a previous post on this site it was mentioned that there is a mistake in the manual and a posting to this forum, revealed a fix, however I can't find this thread at all.

    Hopefully someone out there can help me reset my remote or desktop box ?

    Thanks, John

    It seems there is a mistake in the manual to reset the remote back to the default channel (39) its 1+3 simultaneously and then 1 not 3 as in the manual and its actually 5 to set it to 38 instead of 4 in the manual. So its now working now.

    cheers, john
