Hi there,

I can recommend the Logitech Harmony series of universal remotes. The Logitech Harmony while being rather pricey is very good in that it has a 'database' of products that can be updated over the internet, meaning that in comparison with many other remotes it has a far larger number of product codes. I have checked, and these remotes do have the code to control your HCT. If you are wanting to control any other devices, such as DTV, DVD etc, there is a very good chance that this remote will control them.

Hope this helps,

Emily

Could you tell me which model and also possibly cheapest one will work for my model tv?
Make: HCT
Model: HLD-420HCB
Expert:  Emily Jayne replied 4 years ago.
I havn't been able to find other universal remotes that have the code listed. If you do not want to go with the Logitech option, you will need to try a remote that can 'learn' codes. These remotes are not particularly cheap either.

I can recommend the Sony RM-VL600. It is a good remote that can learn codes, and this retails at around $30.

If you do wish to go with a Logitech remote, I would go with the Harmony 300 ($49). This will only control up to 4 devices at any one time, but if that is all you need there is no point in going for a more expensive model.

Hope this helps,

Emily
