Bought one of these POS remotes at BED BATH and BEYOND. It will channel down but not up. It won't do half of the functions, and was a pain to program. I am taking it back for refund. Don't buy this ****. . . .

No,universal remote only work for the basic like power tv on/off,numbers on the keypad,channel up/down and volume up/down only.Beyond that like inter functions of the tv will not work with the universal tv remote.Only the original remote can do that.Try website like Remotes.com to buy an original remote.
I have a Mintek DTV265 And I haven't had much luck with universals on it. I did have one of those jumbo remotes I got at a yard sale. I tried it just out of curiosity and it worked. I don't remember if it had all the functions I know it had power on/off, Channels up/down, and volume up/down. The jumbo remotes aren't expensive.I hope I helped out. Please give me a vote.
You'll have to try a few: 004, 005, 029, 030, 072, 073, 078, 080, 087, 118, 153. Or use "automatic coding": turn off appliance, hold down function key on remote (ex., TV) until red light comes on, press & release OFF/ON, press Channel + continually and slowly until appliance turns on, press OK to lock in this setting. Repeat if this doesn't work.
The instructions that came with my remote were COMPLETELY incorrect. I made note in pen in my jumbo remote manual. After hours of searching the web and piecing together various blogs, I wrote these easy-to-use instructions:
Place the jumbo remote and your old remote on a flat surface, head to head, with a 1" to 2" space in between (the remotes should be aiming at eachother).
Press and HOLD the device button on the jumbo remote (eg. TV) until the jumbo remote's small indicator light turns solid red.
Press the LEARN button once on the jumbo remote. The light will blink rapidly.
On the jumbo remote, press the button that you want to perform the learned action (eg. If you want the jumbo remote to turn your TV on and off, press the POWER button on the jumbo remote).
Press the same button on your old remote (eg. POWER button on my old tv remote control). When the jumbo remote's light changes from rapid flashing to slower flashing, press ENTER on the jumbo remote.
You're done! Try the jumbo remote out (eg. Aim the jumbo remote at your TV, press the jumbo remote's TV button, then press the jumbo remote's POWER button). Your television should turn on or off with your jumbo remote.
You can program any jumbo remote button this way (eg. MENU, EXIT, MUTE). Just make sure you press the same button on each remote in steps 4 and 5 (eg. MENU on jumbo remote, MENU or LIST on old remote).
If you don't have the code do this! I worked for me.... Hold code search until light stays on... then select item to program <tv, vcr, dvd,exct..>... then press power button once... It will blink every couple of seconds and run thru the codes it self..... wait for the item choosen to turn off.... Then quickly press enter... TADA PROGRAMED!!!!! continue for each item to be programed. Be patient there are up to 500 codes! Can take Up to 10 min, But better than wasting $10.00$ good luck
