Question about Panasonic PVQ-M2508 25 in. Combo
I have owned the Panasonic PVQ-M2508 25 in. Combo now for almost 11 years. It has worked well until recently when the VHS player reached the end of its life and stopped working. Being that I previously owned 2 Panasonic VHS players that averaged 10 years of use each, I ordered a refurbished Panasonic VHS player. The problem I'm having now is that both the TV remote and the new VHS remote activate both the TV and the VHS player at virtually the same time and are interchangable. I press ON and both the TV and the VHS player come on. I press ACTION and it goes through the TV actions and then the VHS player actions screen comes up and I am caught in a loop. The only way to get out of it is to manually turn off either the TV or the VHS player. The same is true when trying to adjust color, tint, etc. Is there any way to solve this problem, short of buying another non-Panasonic TV? The old TV itself still works well and is probably worth no more than $25 at this point. Thanks to anyone who is familiar with this problem and has a workaround.

SOURCE: DTV remote code
Don't know if this will help but I have Comcast as my cable TV provider and am using a Motorola DCT-6200 STB and the remote Comcast provides with the STB. To get my Panasonic TV/VCR combo (PVQ-2510A) to work with the Comcast remote I had to do the following:
1) Do the remote code search in AUX mode (or VCR or DVD mode if your remote has that button instead) using the instructions for searching ing remote codes. I had to toggle back and forth between AUX and POWER on the remote until the TV turned off. I saved that code on the remote, but it only controlled the power on the TV, not the volume control.
2) Next I did the remote code search using the TV button on the remote and toggled between the TV button and the volume control until the volume +/- bar appeared on the screen. I saved that code too.
I use the AUX button to turn the TV on and off. Once the TV is on the volume control on the remote operates the TV volume normally. I still need to toggle between CABLE and AUX depending on which device I'm controlling, the cable Set Top Box (STB) or the TV. You may have to experiment some to get it to work correctly.
Here's a link to the remotes Comcast is providing in my area.

Set-up (Programming) procedure is too much to type in here, and is not practical and it will differ brand-to-brand remote controls. If you wish to get more; check the sites linked here.
