    I just got a Tivo HD and found my self revisiting this issue so I thought I'd update this thread. I'm now using code 0238 to control power/volume, but input has never worked properly.

    With the S2 remote (non-gloss, extra buttons) it brought up the menu for input selection but that's where it ended. None of the arrows or select buttons functioned, so you were stuck on the menu but unable to change inputs. Power often required 2-3 presses (tivo flashed to indicate it saw the IT command) to turn the TV on/off

    With the premium "glo" remote using code 0238 pressing "input" it changes the TV to the tuner form wherever you are. Pressing it additional times does nothing. At first glance, Power still requires 2-3 presses to turn the TV on/off .

    To sum it all up, after 2 years the Westinghouse Digital W2602 BK still requires 2 remotes...

    The GLO remote is learning remote, teach the proper commands off of the westinghouse remote to the GLO remote. Or try other Sony tv codes in the menu.

    That's great info! I'll definitely try it tonight, although thinking about it now I may have uncovered part of the problem. The WD remote doesn't have an input select button. It has a separate button for each input. Hence, there may not be a "next" function to be learned.

    I just purchased a 40" Westinghouse from Target on Black Friday. As mentioned, none of the Westinghouse or Sony codes worked with the tivo remote. However, I was able to train my Glo remote using the remote that came with the tv, took about 5 minutes, and now everything works great.

    Hello all. Hopefully this will help others...

    I have a Toshiba RS-TX60 Tivo and I just bought a Westinghouse VR-2218 22" TV. I couldn't find a code that would allow me to control my new TV with the Tivo remote.

    Knowing that just because the outside of the TV says Westinghouse doesn't mean that the inside components are Westinghouse, so I called them to see who else could have made the TV. They told me to try the Sony or Samsung codes. None of the Sony codes worked for me, but...

    I used 0305, which is one of the Samsung codes and it WORKED!!!

    "0305 Works!"

    But since it's a Westinghouse, it soon won't when the power supply fails, so go ahead and see if http://lcdalternatives.com/ has a capacitor kit already made up for that model number.

    I have yet to get my 40" Westinghouse TV to work fully with my TiVo remote (the new one with the knurled grip). However: 0238, which is the only code listed for Westinghouse Digital, works-- partially.

    I was going a little mad (well, a little madder) trying different codes and not getting the TV POWER button to work. So I started trying the VOL buttons. Whaddayknow, 0238 worked for them!

    The VOL, MUTE, and INPUT buttons all do something useful. So I either leave my TV on all the time, or I keep the manufacturer's remote for that one button. Or, as others have mentioned, I get a Glo remote and teach it the code. Seems a little overkill though.

    I suggest resetting the tivo remote:

    1. press and hold Tivo & TV POWER, until light remains on
    2. press Thumbs Down 3 times
    3. press ENTER, on the bottom row of the remote

    Now retry code 0238

    I've read through and tried all suggestions.

    Many of these codes partially work. The Power, Mute, and Volume work on many.

    However, hitting the "2" key on the number pad to enter a channel into the TV always puts the TV back into setup mode.

    It is ridiculously inconvenient.

    The tv is a Westinghouse with the model number CW40T6DW.

    Only a directv/tivo remotes had ten key pad to control a tv channels, all other tivo remotes only had power, volume, and mute of the tv. What tivo remote do you have?

    I'm sorry. I was unclear. The 10 digit pad is intended to control the tivo channel. The clear and enter buttons at the bottom left and right are also intended for use with the tivo.

    The problem is, if I'm hitting 121 to tune the tivo to channel 121, hitting the 2 (aside from entering "2" into the tivo, also causes the TV to go into setup mode.

    Since my initial post I have also discovered that hitting the ">>" button (intended to fast forward what's playing on the tivo) simultaneously switches the TV to Component input.

    Hopefully, if I've properly clarified, you can see why these would be fairly notable hassles.

    Is this a zenith tv? If not what brand of tv is it?

    And yes try the other nine addresses.

    I've read through [this thread] and tried all suggestions.

    Now seeing that other thread about the remote address, I've moved it to "7" and the problem has resolved. :)

    Thank you.

    For those with Westinghouse remote code issues you may want to check out [URL="http://westinghousedigital.com/support/remote-codes". As you can see there, the codes vary by model and remote. Unfortunately, the TiVo remote isn't addressed.
    I found that 0001 works on my 26inch for all functions except turning the set on.

    I used code 0011 for my 37" Westinghouse. The only thing that doesn't work is the input button doesn't allow selection of a new input since it also requires the four arrow buttons.
