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.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
the service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of (from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones).
click here to download the app (for users in the US for now) and get all the help you need.

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.

To program your universal remote to control your components
using the Direct Code Entry Method, follow the steps below.
1. Manually turn on the component
you want the remote to control.
2. Locate the enclosed Code Lists.
Find the list for the component you
wish to program. Find your
component's brand. You will see a
listing of four-digit codes for each
brand. If your brand isn't listed, use
one of the Code Search methods to
program the remote control. (Refer
to pages 7 and 9 for Manual and
Auto Code Search methods.)
3. Press and hold the component key
(TV, VCR•DVD, SAT•CBL) you
wishto program. The illuminated
ON•OFF key turns on and
remains on. If you release the
component key at any time
during the Direct Code Entry
procedure, the illuminated
ON•OFF key blinks four times,
and the process is exited.
4. While holding down the
component key, consult the Code
Lists for the four-digit code that
corresponds to your component's
brand and use the number keys
(0-9) on the keypad to enter it.
While you are pressing the
numbers, the illuminated
ON•OFF key turns off.
5. After the fourth number is
entered, the illuminated ON•OFF
key turns on. At this time, release
the component key. If the
illuminated ON•OFF key turns
off, you have entered a valid code
and have followed the correct
procedure for Direct Code Entry.
If you enter a code number that is not
in the Code Lists or you do not follow
all of the steps for Direct Code Entry,
the illuminated ON•OFF key blinks
four times when the component key
is released. This is an indication that
a programming error has occurred.
In that case, repeat the Direct Code
Entry process from step 3.
Throughout the programming
of each key, be sure to keep the remote
pointed at the IR sensor of the
component you are currently
programming the remote to control.
6. To confirm that the component key
is programmed with the correct
code for maximum functionality,
test the component. Attempt to
control a variety of the
component's functions with the
remote. If some of the features of
your components do not work, try
programming the remote with a
different code in the list until you
find the code that allows the
remote to control the majority of
your component's functions.
Different codes can provide
different levels of functionality
