Default I hooked up my old HD-DVD player

I hooked up my old HD-DVD player but I lost the remote. What remote will work with a Toshiba HD-DVD player?

The only remote that will work for an HD-DVD Player is the original. You may be able to find a use one on ebay. Have you looked on Toshiba's website?

Logitech Harmony remotes can be programmed to work with your HD player. I have a 550, 650, and 700 and they all work with my Toshiba.

Logitech Harmony Remotes are too expensive to use for an HD-DVD Player, which you probably won't use on a regular basis like your blu-ray player. Here is a seller on ebay that's selling a used Toshiba HD-DVD remote for only $9.00, plus free shipping.

I remember back during the Blu-Ray vs HD-DVD Format War the Toshiba HD-DVD Players were considered by many to be the best at upscaling DVDs.

Does the DVD upscaling from the old Toshiba HD-DVD Players still hold up?

I have a HD-DVD Player, and the upscaling on DVDs looks very good, about the same as a blu-ray player.

I just turned my HD-A20 on the other day and discs wouldn't play. Everything I read online told me my ROM drive is shot... anyway... I've got a remote... I'm in Canada so it may cost around that $9.00 amount but you're welcome to it if you want to cover shipping. I can get a shipping quote for you if you're interested. PM me.

They're 12.50 on Amazon UK and you can certainly use them with the rest of your AV equipment.
