I recently got hold of some old ondigital boxes (picked up four at the boot sale) with the idea of sticking them around the house in bedrooms etc. None of them came with remotes so I had planned to use them with the front panel buttons - but the front panel buttons are unresponsive on all of them. I can power the boxes up and navigate through the menu to select a channel when I first switch on, then it's stuck on that channel until I power down and reset the box. I could believe one box might be faulty, but four behaving in the same way seems very strange?? Am I missing something obvious, or is this a 'feature' of the latest firmware on these boxes? Two are Nokias, one is a Pace and one is a Pioneer. Would investing in some remotes make the boxes usable? They only cost me £1 each so I have no problem with slinging them and I would rather do that than start investing in remotes if they aren't going to work. Also on the question of remotes, does one type of remote suit all makes as with sky digiboxes, or does each make require its own remote? Never played with ondigital boxes before so sorry if these are basic questions. Thanks for any replies.
