I have a Sanyo HDTV LCD 31 Inch DVD Combo.  Model dp26671.   Remote is broken.  Want to get a universal remote that works with this.  Looked online and many people say that universal remotes are notorious for not working with TV/DVD combo units.  Anybody know of a universal remote that would work?

I have had problems with remotes for combination devices, and have gotten things to mostly work by finding different settings for two different settings on a universal remote.  (I.e. programming the TV setting on the remote for a similar TV by the same manufacturer, and the DVD setting on the remote for a compatible DVD drive.)
I think if you wanted to be certain of having the best compatibility, you might want to get a replacement remote for this particular device.

I would just use a learning remote. I like Logitech's Smart Remote, though there are multiple options out there.

How does a learning remote work?  What is the average cost?

here's an example and explanation: http://www.universalremote.com/product_details.php?id=2&s=residential&c=user_interfaces&p=MX-350

it basically receives and learns signals from other remotes, plus it does the usual programming via codes. This model, as in many others, also does discovery mode, where it cycles through all possible options until it finds yours.

Since universals can present issues at times why not pay $19.95 and free shipping for one that matches your TV?

This replacement remote works with the Sanyo DP26671 and will replace your lost remote or provide you with an extra remote. The Sanyo DP26671 remote comes with a 30 day money back guarantee and a 1 year free replacement warranty. The Sanyo DP26671 remote includes Free Shipping via USPS First Class Mail.
