Sync the Remote to Cable Box?

I synced the remote with the TV just fine but can't get cable. I can't find my cable provider in the list so I can not sync it to the remote. . Should I be looking for the manufacturer of the box or the cable company that programs it?

I'm having the same problem but I do know that you need to sync the remote w/the cable box. My cable box is Dolby, which is where my problem comes in. I can't find a code anywhere to sync the/any remote w/a Dolby cable box.

Why does my Samsung not turn off my cable box?


It sounds like the box and TV are out of sync. If the DVR is shut off, turn off the TV manually (NOT with the remote.) The next time you hit the power on the remote, both units should power up together. Make sure the remote is pointed at both device at the same time and slowly sweep the remote to hit both of them while holding the power button. I have always used the cable/DVR remote to control my devices and left the TV remote in a basket for setup stuff only on the TV.

Why does it turn on, then off?


"HDMI-CEC", short for HDMI Consumer Electronics Control, is an HDMI feature many TVs and peripherals have.

If the TV is connected to an HDMI or a programmed remote is being used on the cable box the TV may be getting a second command via the HDMI cable.(CEC) Suggest disconnecting the HDMI cable and manually turning on the TV and see if it will remain on with just a blue screen, Try changing the input to antenna-DVD etc and see if the TV remains on.

You may need to check the settings in the cable box or DVD to change the auto control(CEC) feature. Or if you prefer controlling the TV via the cable box remote then you would not use the TV remote for turning on and off.

This can get very confusing because the TV and the DVD or the TV and the cable box will interact between each other. The problem can be more confusing if the components are not exactly compatible with the CEC. Also many remotes have the additional feature of controlling other components in your AV setup. Many times the operation is alternate action. So each cycle of the remote the TV changes state from on to off. If the two components are out of sync than one is on and the other is off. In that case not using the master on off of the remote but using the individual component setting allows for the two to be sync again. (both off or both on)

Program tv to cable remote


The dish remote should have come with a list of program codes to program your remote. The list is by brand of tv and it gives you codes and instructions on how to sync the tv and remote. If you can't find the paper work I suggest trying to google it or calling Dish for help. Best of luck girl! :-)

Lip sync


Vizio HDTV- Lips out of sync

Anyone with a new Vizio E601i-A3 60" or 70" HDTV that is having audio "Lips out of sync problems" with a cable or satellite box.

On Comcast cable boxes (or others), here's what you need to do: FIND MENU for AUDIO or HDMI setup on CABLE BOX or Satellite Box.

FOR COMCAST

1. Turn on TV and have Cable box Turned OFF.

2. Press MENU on COMCAST REMOTE.

3. Go to AUDIO Setting OR HDMI Setting. (On cable or Sat. BOX)

4. Change setting from Auto to L-PCM. (Turn off cable box to exit)

This should resolve any "out of sync" lips to picture after commercials on HD channels.

*This is a handshaking issue from the cable box to the Vizio E601i-A3

I need to know how to program my logitech harmony 520 remote with my samsung tv i dont have the box or info it came with


If you have the USB cable that came with your remote, connect your remote to your computer using the cable.
Go to www.logitech.com/myharmony and identify your particular remote (i.e. Harmony 520).
The site will download setup software into your remote and then ask you to set up your account.
Beyond that point, the site will provide you with a clear, step-by-step process which will ask you to identify the activities you'd like to set up (watching tv, a movie, etc.). Be sure you have the brand names and model numbers of the devices you'd like to link to your remote.
Programming is done automatically without your having to look up codes, etc.
When everything is done, click the "sync" button or whatever command button completes the programming for the Harmony 520 (I say "sync" because that's the closing command for the Harmony 600, which is the one I have. I would think the closing command is the same or similar for the 520).
After that, you're good to go.

Happy viewing.

Need codes to sink cable remote to rca flat screen


In order to use (Sync) a remote with a TV, the REMOTE needs to contain the codes for the TV. Us the remote's code list and try each code for that manufacturer. If none work, you need a newer REMOTE.
