    Anyone know of the code to get a DirecTivo Peanut Remote to work with a Insignia T.V.?

    I did the code search and it didn't find one, but was still hoping maybe some one would know of one anyway!!

    Worth a shot....

    A coworker got an Insignia LCD TV and had a heck of a time getting a remote to work. He ended up working with One-For-All, sending in his remote to them so they could capture the codes. So now, anyone getting an Insignia TV, should be able to get codes (or an upgrade) for the One-for-All remotes. Don't think you'll be able to get it working with the DirecTiVo remote though.

    The OfA 6131 is what we use with our two DirecTiVos.

    Do you mean "One For All" 6131?

    The neighborly thing to do would be to share the solution, so the next poor soul who encounters this and dutifully does a "search" will be helped. ;)

    No real solution yet. Just figured out that it was not "All In One" but a "One For All" 6131 remote.

    The web page doesn't yet list codes for an Insignia TV. Will just use two remotes for now, until I figure out what I want to do.

    I hate to assume, so when you say you have done the Code Search you mean the Code Search from the manual?

    If you did the Code Search and it didn't work... well that pretty runs through every code set in the remote so you are SOL.

    From the Manual:

    Performing a Code Search
    If none of the codes listed allows you to control your device, a code search may detect the
    correct code. Performing a code search can take up to 20 minutes.
    1. Prepare the remote control. Point the remote away from your recorder.
    Press and hold the TV PWR and DIRECTV buttons simultaneously for about 5 seconds (until the red light at the end of the remote lights up and stays on when you release the buttons).

    2. Enter the search code 0999.
    After you press the fourth digit of the code, the red light on the end of the remote control will flash twice, then remain on.

    3. Test the remote control. Point the remote control at the TV or A/V stereo system.
    Press CHAN UP. Did the TV or A/V stereo system turn off? If not, wait two or three seconds, then press CHAN UP again. Continue doing this until the TV or A/V stereo system responds.
    When the TV or A/V receiver does turn off, press ENTER to select the current code.
    The red light at the end of the remote control will flash three times to indicate that the remote control is properly coded to control your device.
    When the red light on the end of the remote control turns off, you have reached the end of the available codes.
    Unfortunately, due to the great variety of TVs and A/V stereo systems, some makes and models are not compatible with your recorder’s remote control. If you reach the end of the available codes without finding a code that works with your device, you will need to use your TV or A/V stereo system’s remote to turn it on and off, and control the volume.

    actually, you arent completely sol........I bought an Insignia 32 LCD TV and a DirectTivo HD reciever the other night and the 0999 code on the peanut will work the volume, mute and power on the TV at least. Im going to pick up a new Harmony this weekend and I will sure miss the old peanut.....

    OFA code 0463 is equivalent to tivo code 0091. If that code doesn't work, try codes for mitsubishi & philips.

    I never found one for my standard tube 27" Insignia. I found out that the TV is made by Sansui, for Best Buy. Since I have a learning remote, I didn't go very far with trying to get the peanut to work.
