I am trying to set up my remote control to use with my set top box and tv.

Technician's Assistant: What's the brand and model number of your TV? How old is it?

LG model# *****

Technician's Assistant: Does the TV menu work? Do you have the same problem on all sources/inputs?

The tv remote works with the tv, but the set top remote won't work for the tv or the box via the remote, however, I am getting my digital signal through the box to my tv and I can control the channels through the box as well using the up and down arrows

Hello and sorry to hear you're having trouble, and my apologies for any delay in getting you an answer.

Do you still need help with this?

If so, can you tell me what remote you are trying to use here? The LG tv remote? Or the cable remote?

Customer reply replied 5 months ago
I am using the digital set top box remote control. I took a picture of the remote and sent it in an above post. The set top box brand is a topfield.

Okay and the issue is only needing to program it to operate the tv?
Or is it not working to control the box (channels) either?

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
I can only turn on the tv and change the input using the remote for the set top box . I cannot change any channels on the box or the tv. I can only change the channels using the up and down arrows on the set top box work.

Thank you for the information,

this actually would indicate a defective remote.

Please unplug power to the box for at least 5 minutes

replug, wait 5 more, then test again.

If no change, then the cable co will need to provide you with a new remote, which should come preprogrammed for your box and not need any special programming at all.
