Dreambox 500s IR Problem - 21-April-2009, 14:44

Hi, I have a dreambox 500 and the remote control stopped working with the box. The remote control itself works as it has been tested with an identical DM 500, and using a camera phone can see the IR LED pulse when a button is pressed, so this ruled out the remote being faulty.

The next thing we tried was to take the frontpanel off, and replace it with a spare one which we knew worked, this worked great, so now we've issolated the problem down to the frontpanel. We then took the working IR sensor and soldered it onto the broken IR board, and this worked great.

So the problem now is, we've a faulty dreambox with a broken IR sensor, I've scoured the internet trying to find a replacement for this but have come up empty handed.

There's a code on the IR Sensor and it is v34138.

Are there any recommended working alternatives for replacing this IR sensor, or any links to sites selling complete front panels. It'd be a shame to have to replace an entire dreambox due to the IR sensor being faulty. The box is no longer under warrenty and is a legitimate box.

Thanks for any help you can give.
