As Emily Lettilla would say, never mind. I missed seeing the "universal remote" part.
However, if you'll post the brand and model of the remote I might be able to give you some buttons to try.
What is the model number of that Series 2?
It should be on the sticker on the back and start with TCD.
Or you could go to tivopedia.com and picture match
If it didn't have lifetime service already, that would cost you an extra $400, even though it's only standard definition and doesn't do Over The Air digital channels or digital cable channels, so don't dump it in the landfill just yet.
End second EDIT
Each time you hit the Thumbs Down button a Thumbs Down icon should appear on the screen until there are three of them.
Then you press the Enter key.
Enter is not the button, near the arrow buttons, that says "Select".
Enter is the teeny little button in the bottom right corner of the remote (to the right of the Zero on the number keys and underneath the 9) that says "Enter" in little-bitty letters.
Or it might say Enter/Last.
(the way I learned this was not the easy way or by being really smart)
