​My name is ***** ***** I will help with your question. Did you purchase a genuine replacement remote control or have you purchased a compatible remote control?

If you are able to send me any model number that are on the remote control you purchased that would be a great help.

Hi Carl, the situation changed slightly since yesterday. I was able to connect the newly acquired remote (RRS41) to the TV (Pioneer PDP-435PE) via the Media Receiver (PDP-RO5XE).
But I have difficulties linking up any modern equipment (Amazon Fire stick, Virgin HDMI TV cable, etc...) without HDMI input in the Media Receiver (or the TV). I guess I will need converters/adaptors?
Expert:  carlday1 replied 4 months ago.

Does the tv or media receiver not have any HDMI inputs? Could you let me know what inputs it does have?

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
No, it's too old. The TV just has The White and Black cable inputs. The Media Receiver also has Scart inputs, but no HDMI.
Expert:  carlday1 replied 4 months ago.

Y​ou can get adapters that convert HDMI to scart.

​You can also get adapters that convert HDMI into an analogue RF signal but these are more expensive.

Ok, I have ordered the adaptor. Will let you know tomorrow if it works. Many thanks
