    Hi

    Our old silver 'peanut' remote recently packed up. I whipped out a black peanut remote I bought ages ago as a spare.. to find I cannot make it control the Philips TV volume. I've tried every Philips code, 3 times.. no joy.

    The original silver peanut controlled that TV perfectly.

    Is there a reason why a black remote control wont control a UK TV volume like this?

    Any other help or pointers (or even a code, it could always be user stupidity ! :) ) anyone could please offer, would be gratefully received. Maybe I had to use a different code before but it was so long ago I've forgotten.. help ! :)


    ta, iain

    PS it's a Philips 32pf9641

    The black remotes are from the US and are subtly different from the silver UK peanut - IIRC they're missing a couple of buttons and obviously the codeset is different.
    I vaguely recall Philips products used to be sold under "RCA" brand in the US so you could see if that's listed?
    Failing that there is a way to cycle all known codes - page 101 of this PDF
