Just bought a second-hand Samsung BD-D5100 (Model BD-D5100ZC). No remote
included. I live in Canada and am looking for something also second-hand as most of the replacements are labelled *NEW* priced around or over $20. I only payed
$10 for the player.

Comparing the amount you paid for the player with the amount you'll have to pay for the remote is not reasonable.

Are you okay with a ten dollar player with no remote, or would you rather have a $30 player with a remote? Those are your choices.

You could even look at it this way: the convenience of a remote easily makes a BD player three times more valuable than a player with no remote.
A good answer is easier with a clear question giving the make and model of everything.

You can buy a headphone jack IR blaster, then control your Bluray player with app on your phone. this solution is much cheaper than a real universal remote, but the user experience also compromized.
