(I've created a thread for this because it's better to let everyone have the opportunity to input, and share the benefit of anything we discover.)

From a Personal Message:
Hello Jim

I am the guy from Greece that you helped me a lot with the Pirelli STB and the samsung DVD.
I bought recently the Nortek Media Player HDBOX R1 HDMI/Lan TV Record - Set Multimedia (hdbox-r1) and unfortunatelly i am again unlucky finding a slingbox remote file.
I kindly ask you if you can find smthng in he Harmony database you have..

Waiting your answer...
Thanks in advance

Ok, first of all - Harmony does not have the Nortek Media Player HDBOX R1 HDMI (in fact it doesn't have anything for manufacturer Nortek) Crying or Very sad

However, this post elsewhere:
http://emtec.mhdworld.com/modules/newbb/viewtopic.php?topic_id=2669
indicates that the unit might be a "clone" of an Emtec MovieCube R700.

That unit is available from Harmony, and I'll download that, and post a file you can try in a couple of hours...

There is absolutely no guarantee this will work, even if the units are clones, manufacturers often use different remote control codes in firmware for different versions of this type of media player - that's been my experience with similar clones using the (related) Realtek 1073 chipsets anyway. This Emtec one is Realtek RTD1261 or RTD1262.

But it will, at least, be something to try, and you could get "lucky"...

I put a file for the Emtec MovieCube R700 here, give it a try:
http://www.hifi-remote.com/forums/dload.php?action=file&file_id=9542

There are 50 functions in the rmdu file, so I assigned what I thought was a reasonable selection to the available buttons.
You might want to alter the button layout, if the file works for your device. Instructions to do that, and generate new BIN files are here:
Wiki:Creating your own Binary files using RemoteMaster

Don't forget to let us know how you get on.
