Time Warner Cable box (Scientific Atlanta)

So far, I've purchased two 'universal' remotes that say they are capable of controlling the reciever, but neither of them are able to. Tried all the codes in the book and looking for them on the internet but nothing works.
I've tried an RCA universal remote, and one of the "one for all" brand. The RCA one wouldn't even touch the RCA reciever
and the OFA remote would get it to switch sources but that's about it. No volume or surround adjustment controls.
So, before I had to have 4 remotes on hand to get all the functions of all these devices. Now I've spent $35 trying to consolidate them, and have 2 more.
So, anyone know of a brand or model that's going to work? Otherwise, I might have to see if I can open a trap shooting range with all these POS remotes lying around
Bummer. I guess I got lucky.
I have Dish Network, and their remote allows control of my A/V receiver, DVD player and VCR, along with the satellite receiver of course.
Mind you, it doesn't give total control of the devices; just the basic functions.
Good thing too. The wife would go completely nuts if more than one remote was needed.
