Can I buy a 'regular' Philips plastic remote control for 46PFL9705H/12?
Is it possible to buy a regular Philips plastic remote control for 46PFL9705H/12 TV? While the metal one looks very cool, I really don't like using it. It makes navigating around the menus very cumbersome.
Its also cold to hold and very slippy. I am constantly picking it up off the floor after it slips off my lap.
I have a Philips Blu-Ray and it's remote is along the lines of what I'd like:

Hi mike tv,
please get in Contact with: MF Services: (00353) 214 348 98.
But i have to say that I can make any promises to you that they will have it on Stock.
You can also use the Remote f.e. from the 32PFL5604
But please be aware that with other remotes not all features will work and buttons might not open the function you'd expect.
Excellent. Thanks Thomas.
Thanks for that link. Despite my worse-than-basic German I did managed to get the article number for that remote that Thomas recommended. Thanks.

The problem with it's design is by removing buttons and making a 'clean, simple, minimalistic' looking remote control the user is forced to trudge through layers of on-screen menus to access functions that would have been available via one button on a more traditionally designed remote control.
I only noticed that it could be 'fixed' when I programmed my satellite receiver remote to match the TV. Then I could call up the teletext, for example, with a one-button press instead of having to navigate through a menu system.
I don't like using it at all. I must look up that SRU 5150 you mentioned. Thanks.
I finally got around to buying a replacement remote. I just wanted to round this off by confirming that the model Thomas recommended for my TV does work.
There were a couple of model numbers for the remote.
It is known as RCPF02E09B (in the PDF catalog for the 32PFL5604)
but in my research I found it also listed as 242254902314. That second number seemed more useful when searching for a supplier.
Any way, all functions on the remote work with the TV [apart from the Record button, but that's cause the TV doesn't have a record feature.]
The remote is a vast improvement on the original metal one. Far more user-friendly and comfortable to use.
Thanks to Thomas and every one for their help.
