Directv HR71H
TV Technician: Steve G., Technician replied 1 year ago

Are you sure it is "HR71H" I am not familiar with that model.

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Sorry. RC71H
TV Technician: Steve G., Technician replied 1 year ago

Ok. Give me a few minutes to look at this for you. I'll be back.

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Ok.
TV Technician: Steve G., Technician replied 1 year ago

Ok, you said that you had tried codes. Did you have any success at all? You stated that you specifically were trying to change Sources. Does that mean that the codes worked EXCEPT for changing the source?

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
The codes we found work volume but do not turn the tv on or off. The source needs to be changed in the deep menu (permanently), not with the remote.
TV Technician: Steve G., Technician replied 1 year ago

Ok, so you simply need the source changed once and then it will stay like that permanently?

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
on the source. We still need code for remote to turn tv on and off also.
TV Technician: Steve G., Technician replied 1 year ago

Ok, since I don't know which codes you have tried, can you let me know if you have tried any of these?

11291 11480 10250 10178 10156

Also, can't you just change the source from the buttons on the TV - especially if you only need to do it once.

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
When we change on side of tv, every time the tv is turned off, it reverts to tv channels. It does not go to where it was last set. We'll try those codes now.
TV Technician: Steve G., Technician replied 1 year ago

Ok. Let me know.

Here are the programming instructions:

Turn on the TV manually or using the original TV remote.

Press and hold the "Mute" button and the "Select" button at the same time until the green light on the top of the remote blinks twice.

Using the number key, enter the first digit of the code above. Wait for the green light on top of the remote to flash twice

Enter the remaining 4 digits of the code above.

Aim the remote at your TV and press the "OFF" key once. Your TV should turn off. If it does not turn off, repeat the steps above, trying each code until you find the correct code.

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
We have the correct procedure. Trying your codes now.
TV Technician: Steve G., Technician replied 1 year ago

Ok. Any luck?

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Unfortunately, no.
TV Technician: Steve G., Technician replied 1 year ago

Ok. which code works best, ***** ***** all?

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
They all worked for volume only.
TV Technician: Steve G., Technician replied 1 year ago

This TV appears to be a hotel-type TV. Is that correct?

Ask Your Own TV Question
TV Technician: Steve G., Technician replied 1 year ago

Ok, that may have something to do with it. Hotels wouldn't want the occupant changing the source which would then probably generate a call to the front desk because now the occupant can't find regular channels.

Are you actually a hotel or so you just happen to have a few TVs in your home that you bought from a hotel?

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
This is for the remaining 16 tv's in a hotel.
TV Technician: Steve G., Technician replied 1 year ago

Ok. There is a Hotel Mode setup so you can set the initial source input. Would that help? Then it sounds like we just need to turn the TV on and off?

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Do you directions for getting to source input?
TV Technician: Steve G., Technician replied 1 year ago

Sure. It is shown here-----> https://www.manualslib.com/manual/118426/Panasonic-Th-32lrt12u.html?page=26#manual

I assume that you have one of the original remotes?

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
We have all original and a master.
TV Technician: Steve G., Technician replied 1 year ago

Ok, so that will set the source. Then we are just looking for something that will do power on/off and volume??

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
please
TV Technician: Steve G., Technician replied 1 year ago

So ALL of those codes only do Volume? None turn the TV on or off?

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
That is correct.
TV Technician: Steve G., Technician replied 1 year ago

I don't see how to step through the codes like you can with most other remotes. Do all 16 TVs have this same RC71 remote?

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
It is the one with the new Directv Residential Experience for Hotels (DRE).
TV Technician: Steve G., Technician replied 1 year ago

Ok. I do not have an answer for you unfortunately.

I am going to opt out of this question which will allow other Panasonic TV experts to chime in.

I'm sorry.

Hold on please.
