I'm still using the CM7000PAL PVR. I have a Bell ExpressVU remote that used to work well with it, as I couldn't get an original CM Remote replacement. Now that is sporadically failing , especially after I took it apart to clean it.
I ordered what was supposed to be a substitute on eBay but the DISH 20.1 remote doesn't work and I'm sending it back.

Any suggestions?

I would try eBay for the OEM remote. There are lots of remotes available. I see a couple of CM7000 remotes listed.

A Logitech Harmony remote should work. They have just about every device made in the past 10-20 years in their database. The Harmony 650 will replace most IR remotes and do a lot more. The Harmony Hub Companion controls IR, wifi and bluetooth devices.

I got a Dish 20.1 remote, new from China but it didn't work. I found an older, used, Dish remote on Amazon that did work. It was probably the same vintage as the CM remote, same buttons but different labels.
