Replacement DVR doesn't respond to remote, and stuck at Language Selection screen

Replacement DVR doesn't respond to remote, and stuck at Language Selection screen

The DVR failed and was replaced by a refurbished unit of the same type. The voice activation remote worked fine with the prior DVR.  After connecting the replacement DVR, it is stuck at the Language Selection screen because it will not recognize the same remote.  What is the solution?
