Need Philco STB code for Philips universal remote

I need philco STB codes for philips universal remote. And which mode button to program them in? Direct TV remote. Found this on Internet:
Unable to Find Correct Code
If you were unable to find the code for your brand of TV or component, you can try a code search. This process may take up to 30 minutes.
1. Turn on the TV or component. Insert a tape or disk if applicable.
2. Slide the MODE switch to the TV, AV1 or AV2 position, as desired.
3. Press and hold the MUTE and SELECT keys at the same time until the green light under the selected switch position flashes twice, then release both keys.
4. Enter 9-9-1 followed by one of the following four digits:
Satellite  - 0
TV - 1
Stereo Receiver/Stereo Amplifier - 3
5. Press PWR, or other functions (e.g. PLAY for VCR) you want to use.
6. Point the remote at the TV or component and press CHAN+. Repeatedly press CHAN+ until the TV or component turns off.
NOTE: Every time CHAN+ is pressed the remote advances to the next code and power is transmitted to the component.
7. Use the CHAN- key to step back a code.
8. When the TV or component turns off, stop pressing the CHAN+ key. Then, press and release the SELECT key.
NOTE: If the light flashes 3 times before the TV or component responds, you've cycled through all codes and the code you need is not available. You must use the remote that came with your TV or component.

Sounds like a pain in the a**

    The previous post by audacious should read, "Philco STB code for a Direct TV universal remote". The possible fix I quoted  comes from Direct TV site and apparently is just a way to cycle through every known code available. Obviously this is why it takes so long. Trouble is, Direct TV Satellite sets may not have the Philco code yet.

SOURCE: No video on tv monitor

To permanently fix the problem you have to send the unit to a programmer. A quick fix would be is to physically do it in your TV. While your Direct TV satellite receiver is ON, press the "TV/Video" or "Source" or "Input" button in your TV until the video will appear in the TV screen. All the TV has either one of this button.

    I used the 0171 code for my sylvania TV model 6419ta and it still didn't work

    With Philips which is Sylvania, Philco, Magnavox and Philips there are so many different codes in use a Universal or programable remote is usually useless.

    If you have the original and it does not work--see about getting it fixed (usually under 10 dollars) and if not look for the original one new.

    I have a philips universal remote control and I need the code for a philco tv. Joe

    Which of the many Philips universal remotes do you have? lists them all. Then use the remote code finder to look up Philco. For example, the code 2192 is the Philco code for the SRP 4004.

    However, the codes built into the remote may not work if the remote is older than the TV (or was programmed within 6 months of the TV's release). There is a time lag for codes going from the manufacturer to the universal remote makers.

    I hope this helps.

    Trying to program Philco URC-2070 remote control

    I determined that the Philco Remote Control that I wanted to program for use on a Magnavox tv was too old (20+ Years) and dead. It also did not have the features of a new Universal Remote. So, I tosed the Philco remote and purchased a new Universal Remote Control.
