I have just bought a Philips universal remote control to replace our TV remote which is on the blink. Unfortunately I don't see any buttons to access Teletext and the "CC Subtitle" button doesn't bring up any captions. :confused:

Anyone know if it is supposed to do these things or am I plain out of luck?

Is it programmable? If not you may be out of luck, as many universal remotes don't do teletext.

No, I don't think so.

Bugger. Pity I didn't know that before I bought it. :(

It says that if some buttons don't work to try another code so I have another 25 or so to program in to see if I can get the captions up.

I bought a cheap universal remote last year that claimed it had teletext but I couldn't find it anywhere.

Turns out the fast forward / backwards buttons are it:p

Try it out

What kind of a person needs a remote?
The day I get too lazy to tell the Dragon to get up and switch channels is the day I give up TV.

Oh, I already have.
