    I have a Panasonic PV-7670 and, honest to God, the dog ate the remote!!!! So..I have tried replacements but none have all the functions, notably to bring up the on screen menu!

    I read something about hidden toggle codes or something like that...and am lost. Any ideas??

    Thanks in advance

    I have found the One For All Cinema 7+ to be a very good remote. I get all the functions I need for my receiver, DVD player, VCR, cable box, and TV. This remote also comes with 4 learning buttons per device. At $25 it is a great deal.

    Get a cinema 7 and go to www.starbase314.com or e-mail One-for-all and they will send you all of the 'advanced' codes for your requested devvice..

    I would recommend the Sony VL900. It can learn to any button, so you don't even have to use the codes if you don't want to - just teach any button from your old remote to any button on the vl900. It can control 8 devices, and it has 11 macro buttons that you can program a series of up to 16 commands. It sells for $59 at Best Buy but you can find it for $40 online.

    I have had no trouble teaching every button from 4 different remotes into the VL900. And my wife loves the macros. Press one button to turn everything on and configure audio and video to play a DVD. Press that button again and everything turns off. Press another button to turn on and configure everything for TV, etc, etc.

    My vl900 is currently controlling:

    Denon 1802 receiver

    Sony ns500v DVD/SACD player

    Phillips TiVo

    Sony WEGA TV

    Mark,

    Scooter's problem is that he doesn't have the old remote to teach the new remote. The dog ate it. That's why he needs the codes so HE can teach it.

    teach...learn...dog...old tricks...hmmmm

    I'm surprised that the OFA remotes don't have all the necessary codes. Check this site and look for the advanced codes for the Panasonic VCRs.
    Of course you could always get a Pronto [​IMG]
