Anyone using a Dreambox remote?

Hi,

so I've searched the forums but haven't found a single mention of "dreambox". I have the DM800 controller (silver) and have no idea which TV code to use, so that the controller can transmit all of its buttons (including the MENU button). When in "dreambox" mode, I can barely map a couple of buttons before running into the "Key already mapped" issue - which I assume means this mode is not really compatible with Flirc.

Anyway, the closest I've come to a full key map was using the Samsung TV code 0586, but the MENU button would not register at all. Besides Samsing, there's just too many brands, with each having a dozen or so available TV codes so there's no way I'm going through all of them just to find the one that's fully working.

FYI here is the list of codes I'm talking about:

In case this is a wild goose chase, which other remote do you recommend I use? And if you say e.g. Logitech Harmony, doesn't that have its own IR receiver, rendering my purchase of Flirc just a waste of money?

 

Many thanks!
