Question about Vizio VO370M LCD TV

Vizio Universal Remotes

The original remote quit working for some reason, and the Direct TV remote will only work the tv for short periods before it stops working at all...when I can even get it to work the tv. I am wondering if there is a universal remote out there that will function with this tv. I have tried several that I had for other tvs, and none of them will program to the Vizio. The original remote new is more than I really care to spend on a remote.

One thing I learned about universal remotes . They do not support all models. Vizio was a walmart brand (correct me if I am wrong) that was just a tv made by sony under a diffrent name. try the sony codes.



I had a weird tv plasma the name escapes me but it was clearly not a common name and no remote would work with it even in the search mode. one day we where playing with a viewsat (one of thous free to air remotes) and we where able to successfully scan and make work the tv with it. we tried all types of remotes!



in fact at one point we bought a logitech (expensive ) you literly are controled by that company you have to have a account and a internet connection and they want all this personal info just so you can program Your (although would argue like micro$oft that you just had a licence to use meaning you didn\'t own) just to use the tv it was junk $170 back then.



So think Viewsat , or some sort of free2air box remote. for Legal satellite viewing (yes you can actually get 100 of free channels legally with a bigger dish like history, and more free) the remotes have extra features like universal remote and since some of these companies have a tarnished reputation for being dirty they seem to have more support then a average universal remote.

Newer brands of tvs are using new codes that old remotes don't have. Only older learing remotes from original remotes or USB upgradable or newer one that were made after the tv was made will work.

Vizio remote


The remotes for the TV and Direct TV box are universal remotes that can operate very basic functions for whatever else they are programmed to control. If you can program the TVs remote to operate the Direct TV box it will basically only control power and channel. Maybe something else, but not much. The same goes for the Direct TV remote. It will control basic functions on the TV; power, channel & volume. Best bet would be to purchase a universal remote that can learn functions from the original or just keep both remotes available by the TV.

PIP (Picture In Picture) - Your television should have the capability because it has two built in tuners. It can show two channels at the same time or show one channel and one video source (whatever is connected to the audio/video inputs). However, because you are using DTV (Direct TV) you are very limited because you are not using the built in tuners on your television. You should be able to see one picture from the DTV channel and one from lets say your DVD player. If your DTV box has two tuners built in then you should have the PIP capabilities from your DTV and not your television. I'm guessing your DTV is a single tuner (one satellite cable to your box). If you want to watch two different channels you'll need to either upgrade your box or attach another box to your television.

Option: you could also connect an antenna to your television this way you can use the PIP function. Obviously you'll only be able to view whatever local stations you can get with the antenna. Depending on where you live you might or might not have a lot of channels to choose from.

It looks like your remote takes a 4 digit code. Try the following codes:

Can't find codes for universal remote -- purchased for Vizio TV


Unfortunately, there does not seem to be any truly 'universal' remotes and we have two that won't 'learn' from the originals either. They should be called 'multibrand' remotes.
Use your Vizio model number of your set and try here:
Remotes 
This seems to be the best site but they are also not infallible.
