I an unsed remote (actually 2) for my PVR-250 and 350 (the silver/gray one) which I
don't use because I prefer another remote (My Tivo Remote). I'd be willing to sell mine
for $15 + shipping if you want. I'm sure others have these remotes gathering dust as
well so you might be able to get a better deal. Not really looking to get rid of
mine...moreso looking to help out.
