Question about Televison & Video
RCA remote doesn't work. It worked until I tried programming with a Direct TV remote. I couldn't get the Direct TV remote to work (none of the codes worked) and then the RCA remote quit working also. The remote flashes (it has new batteries) but the TV doesn't respond for anything including the power button.

I have the same setup like you. Direct TV and Emerson LCD TV. The Direct TV remote stores a limited amount of codes and none worked on my TV. Sadly it's not something you can update. They seem to only stick with the popular codes. Welcome to the "head of the curve" like me. lol

The remote is only programmed with only so many codes. Sadly, It doesn't hold all code for every TV made.
But you can try making the remote search every code stored inside to see if one of them will work.
Here are the instructions form the DIRECTV web site:
You may still find a setup code that works for your device by stepping through the library codes in your remote. The following instructions will help you do this.

Try a code search, the method should be in the manual. If you can't get that to work then it's not possible to use the DirecTV remote.
If that's the case then get a learning remote.
