The Pioneer DVR-650H-S remote that went to the dark side
The DVR "5" series came to Canada first as the DVR-550H-k, DVR-650H-k in glossy black.
In Europe it was released as the DVR-550H-s, DVR-650H-s in paldium silver.
Where the European editions normally had something like ShowView this time the European editions received a VCRplus+ remote.
In fact the DVR-450H-s, DVR-550H-k, and DVR-650H-k came with VCRplus+ on their slim white and black remotes instead of the TVGuide support of previous releases.
So.. even though they are rare the VXX2964 is a "Perfect" replacement for the slim black as coal with tiny black buttons VXX3288 and "has" VCRPlus+ buttons.
Here is the Canadian DVR-450H-s, DVR-550H-s, and DVR-650H-s remote that never was..
which can still work with the last of the Pioneers today.
