Re: LG TV renote not worknf on 4 new sets
If you have a cable box (otherwise known as a set-top-box) that you have to turn on when you turn the tv on, and you use to change your cable channels, the LG remote will not control it. The LG remote is strictly for the tuner built into the television, and is not capable of controlling the cable box.
You probably see "function not available" because you are viewing the picture on an external input of the tv (component, composite, etc). Your tv cannot tune stations in when it is set to an external input that you use to watch DVD's, cable boxes, games, and other devices. The tv is telling you that you can't change channels if it is on an input.

I have a Trutech 10 inch under cabinet DVD/TV and needed the codes for the new Digital Adapter that Comcast is forcing everyone to move to. The short answer is that there isn't a single code that will work for what we all need. After much research I have an answer. It's largely unsatisfactory, but its somewhat of a work around. If you use code 10451 you can get the channel up, channel down, the number pad and the "last" button to work. To get volume functional, change the volume lock on the comcast box. To do this:
1. With the TV on, manually set the volume to a medium high setting
2. With the comcast remote, press and hold SET until the red light blinks twice.
3. Enter 9-9-3 (red light blinks twice)
4. Press and release the digit 1 (red light will blink 4 times)
Now, in addition to channel control, you have volume control. I can't do anything about the power button or other functions. However, this at least makes the remote functional.
Just bought an LG 32" HDTV and have the new Samsung STB, with a Scientific Remote; the code in the remote manual for LG says to use 1005, but after trying it and many others, I used the "Find Code" set-up (991) and (990) in the remote manual and happened upon 1004 for the LG.
While this worked, the remote is a bit awkward, as you have to enter yet another code (998) in order to control the Power for both the TV and Box with the remote; the good news is that the instructions to do this are pretty straightforward and well presented.
Now, I can turn both TV and Box on/off with power button on remote, can change channels with remote and also vary volume with remote!
I had the exact same problem on a brand new Insignia 26 " LCD with DVD. Comcast tech was able to fix it by changing the Comcast box diagnostics. Here is what he did. Using the Comcast remote with the TV on - press power, cable, menu in that order. A comcast diagnostic srceen will appear. Select Additional HDMI options, then audio options. Change the audio options to L-PCM. Press power again to exit the diagnostics. That will fix it and you get to use the HDMI cable.
I contacted Vizio the other day. They tell me that they use the same generic codes as LG. I have Suddenlink Cable, formerly Charter, so I still use the Charter remote. My remote only needed 3 digits and I have noticed that many need 4 or 5. I can tell you that the LG code worked for my tv. I can power on/off, volume, and change the channel. All other functions require the manufacture's remote. The code I used is 005. There was also 004 but that did not work on my tv. Hope this helps someone!
