Hoopscore - basketball scorekeeper without remote!?!?

    I want to try and find this remote, but the chances are slim. This
    electronic scorekeeper is from the late 70's early 80's - in perfect
    condition, never opened - but it doesn't have the remote - I guess it
    was sold separately. Is there a way to rig another remote control,
    like to a TV to work with this? Thanks

    Maybe. Are you sure it was a wireless (infrared, ultrasonic, RF)
    remote? Lots of "remote control" devices in this period (like VCRs)
    just had a little switch box on a long cord that plugged into the main
    unit. It could be something as simple as finding a plug that fits and
    wiring a couple of switches to it.

    Also, was this a "retail" kind of device, or something that might have
    been used at high school or college basketball games? You might ask
    around at the local schools to see if they have an old one in the
    corner, or can remember how it worked.
