Proscan was one of the brands listed on the RCA Canada web site under the contact link. Others were Sylvania, Igloo and Curtis.

See Dr. Dave's statement above and you will probably find it eventually.

If you are like me (quantity instead of quality), with 7 TV's, basically one in every room, you are bound to own one of these. ha ha

So much easier with a universal learning, cheap remote from Harmony. No code needed, as it scans in the "beam" from the Shaw remote.

I've noted that the UHF feature on the newer (black) remotes doesn't seem to be working as well as compared to the older (silver) remotes. I have a 630 connected to three TVs via an HDMI splitter, and the TV furthest from the receiver where I use the older remote is way more responsive. I changed the batteries in the other remotes without any success. Anyone else experience this as well?

I agree the newer, black remotes aren’t nearly as responsive with regards to UHF manipulation. Slow, wrong button presses (all the time) and delayed command entries.
