I use to have a Philips W/S TV and I now have a Loewe Acconda. I have been loaned an old Philips VCR whilst my Panasonic is in for repair. I still had the remote for the old TV and I though I would use it for the VCR as it will control a number of Philips equipment. Anyway by accident I found that whilst in TV mode it will control the Loewe as well. So Loewe owners dont throw that old remote out it just may come in useful.
