CPC sell hundreds of replacement remotes:

http://cpc.farnell.com/jsp/search2/browse.jsp?N=500009+401+411+1004058&Ns=PRICE_PLS_002_PRICE1%7c0

Most of them seem to be 7, but for some reason most of the remotes are 
not listed.  Unfortunately, CPC is one of those older British mail-order 
companies where their website is definitely a poor second-best to their 
paper catalogue (like RS, Screwfix etc. etc.) :o(

According to the paper catalogue, the "HSO133402" is suitable for Sagem 
PVRs, and so would probably be a good match for MythTV.  It costs 6.90.

Cheers,

Tim.
