Lost 3d Blu Ray Remote...seeking audio / player solutions

Hi all,

I recently acquired a 3d Blu Ray player / Home theater combo from a friend but he had lost the remote. I picked up a Philips SRP3014 Universal remote but codes seem to only get the volume button to work.

The player plays discs and the speakers sound awesome. I just can't select anything.

Are there other options here perhaps in connecting my other blu ray player to just get the surround which is mainly what I care about.

The player is the lg-bh7420p

Thanks in advance

Maybe get a cheap replacement remote off eBay for the one from the friend?

I've seen some from China that seem cheap but wonder if they are legit. The ones from the U.S. or Canada are pretty pricey.

I've bought a no-name replacement remote for a LG TV, and it worked fine. I think I got it through Amazon, and just picked the highest-rated seller.

Found this one at Amazon but I've never heard of TeKswamp and it has no reviews:

Edit: My searches seem to turn up alot of UK sources. The pic I found of an actual remote looks elaborate:

The good news...seems the code needed for this remote was NOT for the Blu-ray but needed imputing as the HTIB.

The not so good...remote doesn't seem to allow me to scan Blus...only skip ahead to next chapter.

Well, at least the sound is amazing!

Logitech Harmony remotes work with a wide range of devices, and have model-specific remote arrangements.

You can search for your specific model HTIB here:

They're a bit pricier than other "universal remotes", but you can find some relatively affordable options, like this refurbished one for $40 at Best Buy:
