HD100 Remote not working correctly - power supply replaced


I believe my remote has stopped working properly with my HD100. I have a 'remote extender' that responds with a light when it receives an IR signal. Some buttons are working while others are not. Is there a simple replacement remote option? I guess I would need a working remote to program a non-sage replacement. Does anyone have any suggestions?

BTW, I only just now figured out that the remote isn't working right, see below for the rather long road I took to figure it out:

Quite a while back I did the three cap replacement process and all has been fine until recently. The last few months the remote started not responding well - well to be more specific, some buttons worked fine while others did not work at all. For example, the 'cursor up' button works fine while the 'down' button doesn't respond. After reading the thread it sounded like a power supply issue (though I was skeptical after already replacing the caps). I decided to simply replace the entire power supply. I bought this one for $10 (shipped) and although cheap, does the job (it even fits inside the unit so I just took the old one out, snipped the connectors and put this one in line so the switch still works):

The HD100 powers up just fine and all seems good but it behaves exactly the same as it did before, which makes sense now that I believe I have determined that the remote is not functioning correctly. Sigh. I have no idea how to get the remote issue resolved however...

Oh jeez , earlier I quickly browsed the 'all products' section, but I didn't see the remote for sale until I just now looked under the 'hardware' section of the store.

Thanks for pointing this out for me, as that should solve my problem!

Well, at least I'll be able to test drive that $10 replacement power supply in case any one else decides to go that route (and it was fast shipping too!).
