Not sure if this is the right place to post this, if not, mods please move it.

I picked up a coolsat 8000 yesterday, the guy was moving,(lucky Me) but He has no idea where the remote is.
I tried google and our sponsors at the top of the forum , no luck
I want to try the dvbs2 channels

I found one $81.95 shipped from 1800-remotes
cheaper than the old drake 1224 remote I ordered years ago $120.00

It controls two of my FTA boxes, LCD TV, DVD players, HTPC and AV receiver and OTA antenna rotor flawlessly now. I can't imagine watching my complicated TV system without it.

I checked it and both HD8000 and CS8000 are in their database, although it does not guarantee every button is in. If you are willing to spend $50 - $100 for a remote, Harmony is the way to go. In the future you have another FTA box without remote, you probably don't need to worry about it.
