Direct TV Remote RC 64 problem

11-11-2009, 09:19 AM
I have a Sylvania, (Funai), LC195SL8A 19' HDTV, Direct TV D12-500 receiver and a Direct TV RC 64 remote. Sylvania codes do not work, Funai are the same codes. Can't program RC 64 to Sylvania TV. I have to "power up TV, and control volume with Sylvania remote and work the Direct TV with the Direct TV RC 64. Two remotes in other words. The hassle is obvious but it is also my bedroom TV and it's bad enough that when I'm in bed with her lovin' is a hard sell, but to add TWO remotes to the mix.....I'm dead in the water!! Any ideas? No help from Direct TV or Sylvania. Thanks,

Get a cheap Harmony or other universal remote. I had the same problem and got a Harmony for like $50. Worked like a charm.

Got Direct TV to send me a RC65 remote for no charge. Complained enough I guess. I then looked up all the codes for Sylvania, Funai, Magnavox, Durabrand, ILO, and TruTech. (All made by Funai). The one that worked was Emerson 11864. Hope this helps others.
