I moved a Phillips DirecTv DVR to the bedroom that has a Magnavox TV. I have tried all the codes for the peanut remote to operate the TV and none works.

Anyone have any suggestions?

Not meaning to hijack this thread but I have a smiliar problem. Does anyone own a Zenith receiver and try to access it on the peanut remote? The list on TiVo does not include Zenith under A/V components, just TV's. I tried those codes to no avail.

Any suggestions?

Thanks,

Marc

I used the code search function of the DTV remote for 2 off-brand TVs and it found the correct code and now I can operate both of those TVs with the DirecTV remote.

CHeck the manual and it'll tell you how. I think it varies from unit to unit.

I've tried the Phillips brand codes and they didn't work either.

How does the search function work, I can't figure that one out.

Thanks

To search:

1. press and hold DTV/Tivo & TV POWER until the light remains on
2. enter 0-9-9-9
3. keep pressing and releasing the CH UP key, each time a different TV power command is sent, when and if your TV goes off
4. press ENTER to lock code in

Dang it, those suggestions didn't work either.

I've had a dozen TV's over the years and have never had this problem.

I tried the auto-search, but after 10 minutes of pushing the channel up/down button, I gave up. Did i give up too early or what?

This is extremely frustrating to say the least.

Help please!

Did you try calling Magnavox?

I too have a Magnavox (LCD HD) and tried calling. Their response "we do not manufacture the remote -- so we can not provide the code. Have you tried searching on the internet?"

I talked to them and got the same response.

They could care less, so I am boxing up their TV and taking it back.

Magnavox can kiss my @ss. I will NEVER buy another product from them or their suppliers.

Screw 'em.
