Did you check the refridgerator?

Don't worry as soon as you order the replacement it'll pop up somewhere.

I always seem to misplace my remote. I'll spend about 30 minutes tearing the place apart and then give up. Just about the time I turn my attention to something else I find it. I need to put the dang thing on a retractable leash. hehe

Pretty much any universal remote, from the cheapest to most expensive will work. How many features you continue to have access to is another issue.
