    Or you could order a SA tivo remote direct from Tivo for $35. I have a SA tivo and a R10 and the SA remote works on both. The only different is the TV pwr button is on top instead on lower left of remote.

    Uniden SQ530 +10ft dish

    Owner manul was printed in 1994. Think that's about when I bought it. It one where the VCll plugs in the back. On side the serial is ********** and it said the date of MFG is (0llD) what ever that means. I am sure the battery in the VCll has ran down by now.
