    BTW, in case anyone is interested, the Magnavox I bought ended up having excellent PQ when I used component cables with my Humax DRT-800.

    My Poloroid is still going strong after about 6 months. Still no luck with the remote codes though. I'll give the Mitsubishi ones a shot, although I think I already tried them.

    Just came across this thread. If you're still tuning, dylan, which magnaox did you buy? We have the same Humax and are in the market for 20" bedroom TV, so your model would be of interest.

    And does the TiVo remote handle the Magnavox?

    We got the 27MS3404 according to the back of my TV, which is the 27" model. I have no real complaints. PQ is good with the component cables, and the TiVo remote handles most TV functions fine. The one exception is the input button on the TiVo remote doesn't work, because the Magnavox doesn't have a dedicated input button and instead uses the channel button.

    As to the Magnavox... does it come back on in the TiVo mode? Or do you have to rummage through the channel list to get to the Video/TiVo input? If so, then that's a deal breaker for us!

    Saw the Memorex in our Sunday flyer... but check out some of the reviews on it! Buzzing sound, slow channel switching, etc.

    I guess it's true that you get what you pay for! But I am amazed that 20" TVs are now going for $100-150.

    I have the 27" version of the Magnavox. I have multiple components hooked up to the various inputs. Changing inputs is done by pressing the Select button on the remote and then selecting the input you want from a list. You don't need to 'channel up/down' thru them all.

    Also, it does stay on whatever input you were last watching after you turn it on.

    Mine has no hum/buzzing. My channel changing is sort of slow but I only use it for AV inputs and HD channels (via OTA) so when I change channels it's tuning in HD channels.

    I can confirm it sometimes does take up to 10 seconds to turn off but the screen goes dark immediately, it's only the green power light that takes long to shut off. It does not take 10 seconds to turn on.


    However, mine is the $699 27" model so YMMV.

    Go to Target and get HD Magnavox NOW!! You TiVo/DVD will work just fine. The picture quality will blow your socks off even if it not HD and you will be able to view OTA HD. Once you see "LOST" in HD your hook. :)

    Yeah, but without HD it won't look so hot, right?!

    I bought the Polaroid FLM-2011 and can not find a workable remote code for it. It's scheduled for a return trip to WalMart in a couple more weeks if I can't get the issue resolved. PLEASE... if you know the code for this booger, please post it or email me at imported2ok (at) yahoo

    THANKS!!

    Awesome work, folks ... the 0011 code also works for the 15" model FLM-1514... BUT it only controls volume and power, not input source (argh... so close).

    Ok, I spoke too fast ... the 0011 code controls volume and power normally ... and the MUTE button on the remote controls input source ... I can live with that!

    So then how would you mute? I guess by lowering volume, lower, lower, lower, zero.

    The newest UEI made remote for Directv, RC64, now lists 14 codes for polaroid tv's. If the mitsubishi tv codes in the peanut tivo remote doesn't work, you know why.

    Actually not. The original Polaroid went completely under. They completely lost their focus and were never able to innovate anything beyond the original Land camera idea. It went bankrupt and the name was sold only. It is now only that - a name that is for sale to anyone who thinks it will give them immediate consumer recognition for cheap Chinese garbage. It's attached to really crappy digital PS cameras, vcrs, tvs, dvd players, fans, flashlights, batteries and the list goes on.
    I would be HIGHLY suspicious of anything with the Polaroid name on it - as it has NOTHING to do with a company invested in making superior products.

    I discovered that my Polaroid TV uses the SHARP tv code to program my TIVO remote. I was able to use 0011 under Sharp and it works for the power, volume, channels, and mute buttons.
    Someone reccommended Mitsubishi but it wouldn't make the mute work. So if you have that same problem try a sharp code. Hope this helps you. If anyone can help with getting the input button to work I'd love to hear suggestions. My input button brings it up on the screen but I'm not able to use my arrow buttons or select buttons to change the inputs. Luckily I don't change inputs all that often.
