You can get one direct from Turbosat.
How about getting a universal remote you can get them cheaper than the toppy remote. Will also control other A/V gear aswell.

If you enjoy tinkering with your toppy and don't have sausage fingers then the Logitech Harmony555 is very difficult to better. Around 50 from pixmania and once you've set it up your family will love you.

I was looking at the Harmony range but after reading people on here saying that they find them slow to control the Toppy I've been a bit put off the idea. I'm now looking at the JP1 remotes but that seems far more mucking around than I could be bothered with. How good are the Harmony remotes really? I did read that people found Logitech changed the system at one point that removed some of the more useful features they have and that the web configuration system is clunky. I really want something that will "just work" to control my tv+toppy+xbox running xbmc+yamaha av amp. Also, what is the battery life like on the 555?

I found they take a while to get set up perfectly but when they are they're an absolute gem. I always found that using a universal remote just added 'yet another' remote to the collection but I've had the Logitech Harmony 885 for about a year or two and it's the 'only' remote I need - it's nearly perfect!

Another alternative is the One For All URC 7555.

They are about 20.

I'm quite happy with it, somewhat cheaper than the Harmony, but essentially no frills.

Is this a JP1 remote? If so I think that's next on my purchase list.

Just had a look at mine, and it has a 6-pin connector in the battery compartment, so I guess so.

I'd never heard of JP1 before... looks interesting! Much easier than programming it manually.

It's by no means easy when you get down to it! But yes, it offers a lot more options when you're learning a lot of codes etc.

My last question is how do you map Archive/list/exit onto the 7555?

I'm fairly certain that the URC7555 is a JP 1.2 remote, which means it isn't quite as simple as the JP1 but pretty much all the same principles apply. I took the plunge and ordered a URC7555 if it doesn't do what I want out the box I'll look at fiddling with it.

I have Archive on bottom left (PPV) and Exit on Back. You should take a look here for a list of codes.

The URC 7555 is a JP1.2 remote so can't be programmed by JP1 tools BUT

1] JP1.2 tools are now available (see http://www.hifi-remote.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=413 for cables and remotes; read the JP1 forum FAQs for software downloads and advice).
2] It's got lots of learning memory so you could use it without programming via your PC - it's just fun and more flexible to be able to program it that way.
