    The maker's name on the remote is AerialBox T2100. I hope that's a help.

    No, hadn't seen that one.
    It's the default one that comes with Sony Xperia Z1 tablet.
    I can control the Panasonic TV ok but not the decoder.

    There might be a label of supplier/manufacture, but possibly inside the unit. I think like some mobiles. You could also check for a pdf of suppliers/vendors online from the seller. The Warehouse has vendors/suppliers document, which has global shipping offices, but not suppliers list online (like Apple) notably from China.. NZ import agent/staff should know.

    That Freeveiw/AerialBox might not be supported in the control app anyway. Especially if they dont regularly update it to support new devices
    Its the same with some cheaper universal remotes, only support some Very popular brands and models and not updated after release .
