I have an 1824, which is similar to the 1724.  When my UHF remote got flakey and couldn't be cleaned anymore, I programmed a JP1 programmable IR remote with the codes for the 1824.  The only problems  are remembering what key on the Drake remote correspond to what keys on the programmable remote and also the difficulty of finding a JP1 remote these days.  I think I programmed it onto old RS 15-2116 and 15-1995 remotes, but I think I could also put it on an RCA  RCRP05BR, which was also sold by RS at one time.  But all three of these are hard to find these days.  It really could be put on any JP1 remote, but I'm only familiar with those 3.  The file I have is for the two RS remotes, which are the old version of JP1. The RCA remote uses a newer version of JP1, but the file can be converted. I've seen the RCA remote on EBAY within the last couple years.
   Anyway, if you can't find a real Drake remote, I still have an old RS remote which has the 1824 codes on it, although that remote is probably very flakey, with some keys that don't work all the time, however it would at least let you test to see if the 1824 codes work on the 1724.  If you're interested, I could try to copy that code over to one of my newer remotes in case I need to use the Drake again, and if I get that to work, I could send you the old RS remote.
   Or if you or someone you know can program JP1 remotes, I could send the text file with the data.  It's a NEC1,134,107 protocol, but the text file defines the data for the keys.  
    Or you might find some off the shelf multi-purpose remote that already has the Drake codes in it's memory.  I know my wife used to have a fancy remote that had all sorts of codes in it.

Fellow Members, your posts are welcome here! Do not worry about posting everything perfect. Different receivers and LNB's will give you different Frequencies and Symbol Rates. Some set top boxes, PCI cards and USB receivers, Do Not Require all of the same information that others may need. It is not Required to post everything that others may need to tune in a feed. It is just most important to share the find. We can always adjust the Frequency and Symbol Rates and try the various Modulations and FEC's on our own receivers until we get a lock and then give a polite reply with what works for your receiver, as that information might help others as well. We all appreciate the efforts and energy of the Posters!
