Use the menu on the receiver to get to tv remote programming. Go to codes for a GOLDSTAR tv. The first codes will give you basic functions. As for using the proper Vizio codes, I don't know. I can't get my RC64r to work with the vizio codes....

If you wish to get more details; check the sites linked here. It has set-up code list & set-up procedure to many popular brand remote controls. Common codes to check devices with different brand TVs are given, in the order of the device's brand name list in alphabetical order. Pull up older posts. Surf the site with patience. http://remotesearch.blogspot.com/ http://electrohelponline.blogspot.com/
Direct TV remote control code list is given.
Try these instructions and see if they work for your genie remote.
First, have your Genie Mini receiver connected and powered on. Next, grab your RC71 remote and simultaneously hold the "MUTE" + "ENTER" buttons until you see a box appear on your TV screen that says "Applying IR/RF Setup. Please Wait" (this appears after about 5 seconds of holding those buttons). Once complete another dialog box will appear and read, "Your remote is now setup for RF." Click "SELECT" to exit that screen. Next, click the "MENU" button, scroll down to "Settings & Help", then click on "Settings", scroll down to and click on "Remote Control", then click "Program Remote". Next you will have two options, either "Program TV" or "Program Audio Device". Click "Program TV", this takes you to a screen where you need to select what BRAND your TV is. After you have selected your TV brand you will have to select the TV Model ( I recommend looking at the sticker on the back of your TV for the accurate Model number or using your current TV remote to find the model number from the menu screen on your TV for fastest and best results). Once the correct model number is selected, AIM your RC71 remote at the TV and it will AUTOMATICALLY program!
The Direct TV remote control I'm currently using is a RC64RB I guess the RB stands for radio broadcast? I learned from researching on the internet that the Direct TV DVR receiver has a different setting for each type of remote. The "RB" remote (the one I'm currently using) has an FCC sticker on the back. Direct TV sent me the wrong type of remote control. AND they have wasted hours of my time. The DT technician that I sought answers from is an idiot!!
Dish remotes generally will not program to combo units. There are a few exceptions but if you have already performed a power scan and have not had sucess you have one of the units that will not work. Dish is introducing a new receiver called a 222k which has a learning remote to prevent these types of issues. The 222k is a HD dussl tuner NON dvr receiver.It also has an expansion port that will allow a external hard drive to be connected to it which will allow the receiver to behave as a DVR unit but with added benefits an internal DVR model lacks.
Hope this answered your question and thanks for using FIx Ya. Let me know if I can be of further assistance.
