If I can get a compatible and cheap remote control, will try to look for one in JB and bring back the next time my wife goes home. Thanks.
I think most electrical appliances shop have it ... or the one that sell astro unit
... err u can buy it in JB n use courier services to Sandakan ...

U must buy a same model/make with the broken one ... several model/make available e.g Nokia etc .
Different model/make have different shape of RC ... tips : just find one with the same shape !

AAAA RC brand ? :lol: it can be anything or nothing ! ... n do test it 1st b4 pay ...

From Astro facebook

The Astro B.yond HD media launch just ended! The High Defininition service will launch on 18 December with:

Astro SuperSport HD
National Geographic Channel HD

while ESPN HD will be on air January 2010.

We'll also be the only one to broadcast all World Cup 2010 matches next year!

Also,
we'll give you a new HD capable dish, decoder, and smartcard called B.yond in exchange for your old box for an additional RM 20 HD service fee per month. On other words, we'll change your entire setup for you

That's additional RM20 PER MONTH, for the rest of our lives! And who knows how much more when they add other channels?
