Default Emerson Hd Tv = Direct Tv Remote???

The wife and I bought an Emerson 32" HD TV.
We upgraded to Direct TV DVR.
After 2 hours of "Manually" inputting codes into our Direct TV Remote, we STILL have to use the Emerson Remote to Turn On/Off the TV.
I want to streamline my Coffee Table and don't want 2 remotes (if I don't have to).
I called Emerson and they gave me 4 "other" brands that "may" work (hence the 2 hour job of programming).
I've e-mailed Emerson looking for the 5 Digit Code and no reply after 10 days.
My son suggested a Universal Remote that would "read" the infra Red signal from the old remote, to the new one.
Putting the old one in back of the new Universal Remote and it reads the signal.
Does that sound feasible?
He suggested the "Harmony 500" Model Remote.
Anyone else have any experience with this situation, or where I could find the 5 Digit Code to program into the Direct TV remote?

Go get the Female Voice Prompted remote from Radio Shack 15-2146 which is $14.95. Page 38 has a lot of codes for DirectTV and the Emerson 32 and 37 are the same codes since the remotes are the same. The codes for the Emerson are on page 39 code 0463 I think that's it? You'll know when the TV is turned off by the remote.

I have the Emerson 37" and had a hard time finding something that would work with it but the 6-in-1 does. There is also the 8-in-1 it doesn't talk and it has LCD screen instead of the female voice. I like the female voice model remote better and it's cost 1/2 the price.

Go to RadioShack buy the remote and try it for yourself it's very easy to setup your DTV and Emerson.
