Are there any new codes for an Advent TV?
For Advent, try 0761 or 0784
Thanks, but no dice. Is Advent similar to anything else (another manfg.)?
Not that I know of. The codes come from the manual. Are you sure you are programming it correctly? Press TV power and Tivo buttons down at the same time for over 5 seconds and then enter the code.
Yup. Code scan isn't getting me very far either, although, I have only given it a 10 minute try.
Try the philips tv codes for Advent, but be forewarned, non-Advent remotes have been known to fry the eeprome of the tv making them useless.
Scary, but the Phillips ones didn't work either. We moved the SD-H400 from an old Toshiba where the remote worked to the Advent, so I know the remote programming worked at one point. Guess I might have to spend a lot more time with the code search or live with two remotes.
Try code 0150, others have posted that toshiba tivo and advent tv's had IR conflicts:
bump so I can find this thread when I get home tonight
The manual says to press the TV power button and the "TiVo buttons". Its actually the main Tivo Button.
Any Codes For A Vizio Tv? And Plz Explain Programming Procedure Or Manual Programming For Me. Thks
For vizio try code 0178
Anyone know of a cheap universal remote that will access all functions of the SD-h400?
My original remote doesn't work anymore.
One For All 8820. What keys it does not have can be programmed with key moves.
Thanks, I will look for one.
The 6131 is very similar to the 8820, but it is specifically for Tivo and has some specific buttons for that purpose.
a PVR button, Red and Green checkmarked buttons (for Thumbs Up and Down) one for a 6 second rewind, and one for a 30 second skip forward.
But the SD-H400 does not support the latter feature. So I programed it to go to direct directly to Live TV. As it comes it you program it for the for a DVD player and then you can add the functions for a number of function.
A search of the forum gives all of the specific codes for the different features that you then assign to different keys.
I wore out my 6131 out and bought a new one. It is suppose to be extendible so I called and they did have codes for my DTV converter box so I send it in to get the codes added.
But for some reason they said that they can't add then and sent me the 8820 with the converter codes added.
Just got it so I have not set it up yet. But I am going to miss the special keys. Part of that I can "fix" with a Sharpie. And since I only have Tivo basic I don't use the thumbs up and down. They are also zoom when viewing DVDs, but I really don't need that.
But the 6 second rewind and Live TV are going to hard to replace. Those positions are now additional device selections. I don't think that they can be reprogramed, but I am going to try.
The 8820 has some nice features. It will learn from other remotes. And it has positions for 2 micros.
Those might be handy if I don't end up needed them for function keys.
Almost any key on the 8820 can hold a macro, including the device keys. Those become push & hold macros.
Likely because they are discontinued and the hadn't any around.
A little known secret with the 6131 and a few of its brothers, that while it was designed to be extendible, the ones manufactured for retail were manufactured without the components needed (eeprom/jumper/header).
One For all had some set aside with those components installed for requests to have codes added.
The JP1 modding community adds them.
I don't like the position of the arrow pad on the TiVo remote, so I've been using an 8820 with my TX20 from the start.
Perhaps because I don't use the DVD player, or every key on the original remote, but I don't feel the 8820 is lacking in any way; it can accommodate every function on the original remote, even if the labels don't match up exactly. I considered the 6131n at the time, but I wanted a better-rounded remote that would work with other components in my system.
Among others, I have the replay and 30 sec skip programmed to the Replay and Advance buttons. CC/Shows jumps directly to the NP list, and Format/Live for Live TV.
What really surprises me about the 8820 is how well it has held up. I've had fancy factory remotes with button label screenings that have rubbed off in less time, but my OFA is perfect. The original batteries were replaced for the first time this year after being in use for 3+ years. Not too shabby for the six bucks I spent on it on ebay. Maybe I should procure a backup before they discontinue it.
I will help you after I return home.
