I'm getting no output to the tv and I did triple check the connections. I'm using basic RCA cables.


I had the same problem myself. To fix it,I went into the menu for my Television set and changed the setting to VCR/DVD ... then I used the remote for the LG combo and changed that setting to AVI 1 using the 'input' button under the #9. It would not show on the front of my LG combo but did show on the TV screen. The problem is that your combo and television are not communicating with one another,like speaking 2 different languages.

Need codes for Go.Video remote control


Go video remote for dvd/vcr recorder combo; you program TV by 2 digit codes. press TV power down when TV is powered on; and input 11 for JVC TV, or 03 for GE TV. You can experiment any two digit codes until TV shut down, then you have just finished programing n150b remote. This also work for all LG dvd/vcr combo recorder remote such as 6711RN203A..

Need code for Viore TV to program LG RC897T DVD/VHS Recorder


I believe Viore is the same as Samsung. I only noticed this by accident as I bought a Viore TV and my friend bought a Samsung and I noticed both remotes were identical. I tried the Samsung codes and the remote worked. Good luck! Kevin
