I cannot program my COBY TV to the DIRECT TV remote...

I have tried the following Direct TV Code: 12315. 12314, 11531 and 11738.

Any suggestions?

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.

Ok, let's try 11548.

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

Need to try another



Ok, try these:

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

Let me know.


Customer: replied 4 years ago.

NO !!!!

Ugh... Give up?


Ok, let's try a code search.

First, download and open this document and go to page 10:

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 4 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...

Sure, I will be here.


Customer: replied 4 years ago.

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

whats the cheap fix?


This is a learning remote:

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:
