Hi. I'm Steve. I'm sorry to hear about your TV. I will try my best to give you a precise and accurate answer.

Can you tell me which DirecTV remote you have there. It should be on the front of the remote for example RC-65.

Let me know.

Customer: replied 2 years ago.

RC64

Expert:  Steve G. replied 2 years ago.

Ok, let's try 11548.

Let me know if it doesn't work and we can try another.

Thanks

Steve

Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Need to try another


 


 

Expert:  Steve G. replied 2 years ago.

Ok, try these:

20778, 20852, 21086, 21107,21165, 21177, 21351

Let me know.

Customer: replied 2 years ago.

NO !!!!

Ugh... Give up?


 

Expert:  Steve G. replied 2 years ago.

Ok, let's try a code search.

First, download and open this document and go to page 10: http://remotes.com/remotes/documents/DirecTv/RC64R.pdf

Follow thw instructions there to search for the code. If after that, the remote will still not control the TV, then there is no remote in the remote for that TV.

If that happens, let me know and I'll give you a good cheap option.

Customer: replied 2 years ago.

That is quite a process.... I will have to do it later.... can I come back here after and hour or so?

The TV does have its own remote device...

Expert:  Steve G. replied 2 years ago.

Sure, I will be here.

Steve

Customer: replied 2 years ago.

I cant get the code search to give any results...

whats the cheap fix?


 

Expert:  Steve G. replied 2 years ago.

This is a learning remote: http://www.walmart.com/ip/RCA-5-Device-Learning-Universal-Remote/14554642

It learns the codes from the existing Coby remote. It will also work the satellite box.

Then you can get away with using just one remote for the TV and sat box.

If your budget is a little more, get a Harmony 300: http://www.amazon.com/Logitech-Harmony-Remote-Control-915-000143/dp/B003IZFCFW/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1354587194&sr=8-1&keywords=harmony+remote+300

I'll be here if you need further help. Please do not hesitate to ask. I'll respond as quick as I can. I want you to be completely satisfied with my service today.

Regards
