    Check out their website. You want the support section and the FAQ on Remotes. This should give you everything you need to handle the Vizio TV.

    I believe the OP is looking for a way to use the DTV remote to operate the Vizio power and volume functions.
    DTV requires a brand name to program this function but does not list Vizio
    The FAQ on their site (vinc.com) only deals w/ codes to get their remote to operate DTV functions
    I have the same problem :(

    DTV does NOT require a brand name. :eek:

    Have you tried the manual programming method? See the section titled Performing a Code Search (Chapter 7, page 112 in the HR10-250 manual).

    RTFM.

    All owners of vizio tv's in this thread should get together and invest in a OFA urc-8820 universal remote, do a code search on that remote, blink back the code, write down all brands that use that code in the OFA manual. Collect the codes for those in the tivo remote, Come up with a definitive code.:)

    Uhh?????

    Why???

    Just invest in a Harmony remote and let it do all the work for you!!

    With respect, Ed, most people just want a remote to work without messing around with it. A Harmony does this for EVERY TV and anything else you want to control - no programming skills needed.

    (I have no connection to Logitech or Harmony and I recommend the product as a user and for no financial gain).

    If you knew the code in the tivo remote, you might be able to program the INPUT key. And wouldn't have to go through a codeset search each time you lose a battery.

    Anyways the OFA remote is going for under $10 on ebay.

    Sorry, didn't mean to! ;)

    I do have a question though. I've seen those Vizio TVs advertised at Sam's and I was wondering how good they are? I need to buy a new TV for the bedroom and was thinking of getting one as they are at least $300 cheaper than anything else out there of that size.

    I have the 42" Vizio plasma. I did a code search and the closet I could find was a code that would allow me to use the onscreen menu of the tv! no on/off or input control!
