Anyone know if the Tivo remote can learn more codes? (I dont have the code, I need to find one to work on a proview LCD)

I just got the Proview 32" LCD special at Costco and a new HDTivo to go with it but none of the codes or code search get the peanut to control the power or volume on the TV.

Proview tech support says, "sorry, no other remote works" D* says, "use a universal remote". Just thought I'd ask before I toss the peanut, it's so simple for the non-techies in the house since no stereo is involved in this smaller room I was hoping to not need another Harmony.
Thanks.

I'm in the same boat. Got the Proview for my birthday and tried all night trying to get the Tivo remote to work on it. After about 100 clicks on the "channel up" in the code search it worked (TV turned off) but by then my fingers were on auto pilot and promptly pushed the "channel up" once more. *Sigh*

So I figured I just have to start from scratch. But for hours it won't ever work for me again. Is there a way to have the Tivo remote code search start from the beginning? The reason I ask is it certainly doesn't seem to go thru "hundreds of codes" as the Tivo support page suggests.

Anyone out there who got the Tivo remote to work w/ their Proview LCDs? The enquiring mind would love to know! ;)

I got the Septre 30" LCD set from Costco and it apparently is not supported by TiVo (or anyone else that I can tell). If anyone has gotten the "peanut" to work with this, let us know.
thanks

In other LCD TV forums, They have found that Philips codes seem to work. On my two (26" & 30") Philips codes what is needed, I just cant remember the code I used. It's hell to get old..

The Philips, Samsung, and Sampo codes didn't work for me with the Proview LCD. I have a Humax DVD Recorder Software 5.4.2-01-2-595.

I have the same problem with my Westinghouse LCD. Their support says no other remotes work with their unit except learning remotes.......

I would be great if somebody could produce a peanut-like remote with learning features.

So does anyone find the code for Proview 32 LCD TV? What about with the code search? Press both 'tivo' and 'tv power' button at the same time and enter 0999 and use 'Cha Up' button to search for the code? I have been try to search the code for like half an hour, I can still continue, but just want to make sure others have success. Thanks.

I have the proview rx-326 and like everyone else found out the hardway that Tivo does not know about this tv.

I decided to try the tv power-tivo button 5 second method to type in 4 digit codes.

Fortunately, it didn't take long since 0001 worked for both tv power and volume up and down. Personally, that all I care about from my Tivo remote.

Hope this saves others some time

Try the 1st Sony code. It worked on my 32" Westy for power, volume and mute, not input, though.

I have the Proview RX-326 LCD (36") from Costco. Remote Code 0001 did not work for me. Neither did 0999, pressing [Channel Up] ad infinitum. Anyone else have luck with 0001, or any other code? I'm starting to believe that after months on the market, the Proview set is simply not compatible with the TiVo Peanut remote. And paying $150+ for a Harmony is just too expensive for the convenience of one remote. Otherwise, the LCD has been great.

I have the PROVIEW from Costco as well. After considerable time I have to be content with controlling the volume and the on/off switch on my tivo remote--the mute and tv input buttons don't work. I used the 0001 code (thanks) , I also started at 0999 and went channel up, the tv shut of within a minute. It gave the same results. Good luck to everyone and post if you can find something better that works.--Tony who loves Tivo in San Diego

Still no good for me. I tried the 0001, no good. On occasion I use the old Harmony 659 I have but it eats batteries so I usually just use the pro-view for power and volume then the peanut for tivo functions. It's a bedroom setup so limited use is tolerable.
I have the new Harmony 880 re-chargable with color screen for my main TV and it does everything great.

Since you resurrected a 17 month old thread, I'd say the codes haven't been discovered. I do congratulate you for doing a search to find this thread. :) I'd suggest you get a learning universal remote, like a Harmony mentioned.
