Hi all.

I just picked up a Westinghouse lcd tv and realized that my DirectTivo remote does not have Westinghouse listed in the programming codes.

Is anyone familiar with this brand of tv? Perhaps Westinghouse is using codes from another tv brand?

I look forward to any help.

TIA.

There are two white-westinghouse tv codes in the one-for-all 6131. And they match codes 0091 & 0111 in the tivo remote, so give them a try.

I tried for a while and got bored. I'll post if I have any success. My Time Warner remote can't control my TV either, so I think it might be a lost cause. :mad:

This is from the blog....I had trouble finding a code listed for my TV, a Westinghouse LCD, so I just started at 0000 and stopped at 0067

You guys don't have to manually enter codes. The search function Edmund refers to is much simpler. TiVo's online support article gives the instructions.

http://customersupport.tivo.com/knowbase/root/public/tv1035.htm?

You just type in "0999" and press Channel Up until the TV goes off or the red light goes out. Just make sure to wait the two seconds before pressing UP again so you don't skip any codes.

The newest UEI universal remotes, the urc-8820/10820, have over 211 brands of Tv's, including westinghouse. The bad news is no other brand listed uses the same code as the Westinghouse. When using the code search, you're hoping to find another brand that might use the same codeset, but isn't reported yet. I think its hopeless. Get the urc-8820.:)

I can confirm that 0067 works. It took a few tries, but eventually works for power, volume, and mute control. It seems like pointing the RC at the TiVo and TV helps when entering the code, and you may have to make sure that each button push is registering (the red light flashes). When using the RC for TV control, I seem to have to hold the buttons slightly longer than I did with my previous TV.

Also, It "sort of" works for the TV input control. It opens the interface, but doesn't want to control the menu. Bummer, but I still need the Westinghouse RC on hand for screensize control, so I'm just happy to have the TiVo RC for TV volume control.

I too picked up the Westinghouse LTV-32w1 LCD TV to be used with my Philips DSR6000 DirecTivo.

I can't get a proper code to control the PWR/VOL setting on the peanut remote. A search of forums seem to indicate success using SONY codes, particularly "0238". But what is odd is that neither of my two units even accept that code! In other words, I hold down the pwr/tivo button on remote (covering the IR) and enter that # but it never gets "accepted" by blinking. I do the exact same thing for other codes and it gets "accepted", but of course they don't work for this TV. With my prior Toshiba TV this wasn't a problem. Any ideas why the remote wont accept a specific code, even though it is listed as one to try- albeit for a different manufactured?

Thanks,
GLenn

Ok, so your remote doesn't accept code 0238, does it accept code 0067 or 0136? Because they're the same as code 0238. If your remote accepts the other codes, but doesn't control your Tv, then that just proves you model doesn't work with Sony tv code where other models do.

I have two of the newest universal remotes on the market,the URC R5 and OFA urc-10820, each has two codes listed for westinghouse Tv's, not talking about white westinghouse, the 4 codes do not match each other, and they don't control a sony tv. That tells me that there are many manufacturers suppling tv's under the Westinghouse brand.

Hi,

DIRECTV DVR TIVO REMOTE CODE IS 0067 ON WESTINGHOUSE LCD TV. see below

I also, just purchased the Westinghouse 27 LCD TV and did not find the TV brand on my TIVO list, so like many of you, I started to look on the web, and found that many like me, have the same problem. I tried several codes, from the ones listed on this site, to other sites, to even use other brand suggested. but one that worked is 0067. at first it did not work, so i tried another one, and so on. But, on this site was a person that said that code worked for him, so I tried it, and it did not work. so I gave up and left it in that code 0067. minutes later, I had forgotten about it, and wanted to lower the volume on my new LCD TV and unconciously press the lower volume button and it WORKED I don't know if the code had to rest for a while of what.
best of luck... and very happy with my Westinghouse/tivo combination.

It will only do. the following functions... OFF / VOLUME / MUTE... will not turn it on.

I've tried the suggested sony codes for power on and off (especially 0067) but with no luck. Does anyone else have this same model TV and a functioning tivo remote code?

TIVO: Tivo manufactured series2 DVR
TV: Westinghouse 27'' LCD Model W32701

I have a model Westinghouse 26" LCD tv and Volume, on/off, channels, mute, etc. works with my old style TIVO peanut remote but very poorly. But power works about 1 in 10 pushes and volume about 1 in 5. It acts like dead/dying batteries and it's very aggravating. These functions work fine with the TV's factory remote.

As for the code, I searched for a very long time so I do not know which one was it. 0067 sounds reasonable based on how long I searched. When I try to get the remote to dump the code, it just says 0000 unless I'm reading it badly.

Final thoughts: It sucks, so don't get real excited about making it work. I came here instead of tossing the peanut through the LCD. I am using two remotes now.

FWIW, I just switched from the "old " peanut (smaller, glossy, less buttons) to the new peanut, and all works well now. I still prefer the older, smaller peanut, but at least I have volume control.

I am using control code 0067 for a model Westinghouse 26" LCD TV.
