Motorola DCT6412, remotes anyone?

I have the Comcast Motorola DCT6412 Dual tuner DVR. Now, I lost the comcast remote, which is ok because I hate the remote anyway. Anyhow, whilst looking for a new remote to  control the box, I' noticed that many remote control companies have codes for other DVRS- such as Tivo, yet I cannot seem to find a remote that would work with my dvr. Has anyone found a good remote (or one that works) for the comcast DVR?

Re: Motorola DCT6412, remotes anyone?

A number of us have Harmony remotes from Logitech, which operate all sorts of devices from Stereo Receivers to Air Conditioners to every model of DVR.  I would highly recommend it to anyone interested in having one remote control to operate every imaginable device they own.

www.harmonyremote.com  (You can find them a lot cheaper at other retail sites, but the main site is the best to compare features and styles)

In general your Radio Shack and the like (with the transport controls) will work.  If not, Comcast remotes can be had cheaply on ebay.

Some remotes may not list Motorola, but should get basic operation using General Instrument (GI), and similar. You can look at the Remotes section of the Wikibook:

You may also want to check out OneForAll remotes. Some have a connector that lets you program it with your computer. It's not official support, but there is user-created software to program features and add devices:

I have misplaced one of mine as well.  Anyone know what Comcast charges for their remotes when one is lost?

Just go to a local office, or even find a tech nearby. They'll just give you one. At worst, you may just have to prove you are a subscriber with a cable box.
