if It is similar to most RCA universal remotes, to get the code follow these steps(Manual code search MAy take awhile):
1:Manualy turn on the component that u want to control
2: press and hold the component key (ie SAT while holding SAT press ON-OFF key(button) for three seconds until all of the components light up and release the keys(button).
3: keep pressing ON-OFF key until your component turns off.(Note may take awhile)
4: one the correct code is found hit the STOP key and it will save your component IF YOU DO NOT HIT THE STOP KEY THE CORRECT CODE WILL NOT BE STORED.
Hope this works

RCA's site list codes 25 and 006 for Magnavox cable boxes. Maybe one of these will work for the converter. The RCA site has a link so you can look up codes. Click on "find your remote control codes here" and pick your model number, then the type of device you want to control. If the codes I gave don't work, maybe try some of the other brands of cable box codes. You might find one that will work.

You should have the instruction guide. If not look below. It's there but look closely for the guide itself and how to increase it's size to readable.
Check on the back of the TV to see if there is a 3 and 4 setting, If so, set to 3.
With nothing connected to the tv, and using the tv's remote, scan for channels. It should come up with only channel 3.
Then using the remote with advanced options, set the the input to either antenna or auto.
Connect the antenna cable to input on the converter box. Using the supplied cable connect the output from the converter box to
the TV. Turn the TV on first, followed by the converter box.
Then follow the instructions.
Not really easy so you'll have to fight your way thru it.
Finding the right setting for the antenna will probably take the most time, requiring a station scan after each adjustment.

might be able to use the cable co remote and autosearch thru the codes, but its too hard to explain, the cable tech should have ran that procedure. unfortunately, rca has 50 million models. it is common to have a tv and yes rca for sure, to not take the codes. sometimes the tv is too new for the cable company remotes to work. i am leaning toward the tv too new theory. give it six months and i bet there will be a new remote version.
