Visio TV and Direct TV remote

We have a Visio flat screen TV and recently added Direct TV. The Direct TV came with a remote that has to be set up according to the TV brand but Visio is not listed. What TV would be comparable to the Visio?

    We have to use the Visio remote to turn the TV on and off and to adjust the sound. However, our problem is that the picture is too large for the screen. It cuts the tope and bottom off. Any ideas on how to adjust the picture size?

I bought a 42" Visio LCD from Costco and used code 10030 and it worked. It is the code for Goldstar TV.

The picture sizing issues may be due to the way you have your input signal setup... Cable tv, directv, dish network??? you need to tell the STB to output 16:9, and NOT set to "stretch" format

How do I get my Sony universal remote to work with my Visio tv!

On your Visio TV remote control there will be a Source button or Input button. Press it & on your TV screen select HDMI 1 or HDMI 2. See the TV to see how the HDMI cable is connected from TV to Set Top Box. Now take the other remote control i.e. Sony Universal remote in your hand. Press mute & Select simultaneously. A blue light will blink twice, Immediately release the buttons & enter the code. You have to be extremely fast in doing this.
Following are few codes which you can try:
002, 000, 011, 080, 111, 006, 071, 128, 1904, 925, 0000, 0834, 0810, 1685, 1786, 1032, 1972.
Check the Visio TV manual for the make of your TV & model no & if code is printed. Then contact Visio TV manufacturer or retailer for the Visio TV code to enter & synchronize with the Sony Remote Control.

Visio 1080p screen went light

Our Visio 42" flat screen TV did the same thing. It didn't happen that often but sometimes it would go darker or the sound would go off until I changed the channel or turned TV Off then back On. I contacted Visio through my warranty and they sent me a flash drive to install info on my TV. Did not fix the problems. A year later before warranty ended I contacted Visio again. They sent a huge box for me to pack my TV in to send to the warehouse where they fix everything. It took about 2 wks. to get it back. Worked fine for about 4 months and the problems continued. I will not buy another Visio TV. I found out that they had many problems with several models.

We recently purchased a Visio lcdhd tv and the manual that came with our Jumbo uiversal remote doesn't show the code setting for the Visio. Is there a code you can give us.

We can't give you the code without specific model numbers for both the TV and remote control. Try the codes for the Visio models that are listed in the manual. There is a good chance that Visio used the same coding system for more than one model. If that doesn't work, check the Internet support page for your remote control. It may have additional models listed, and one may apply if Visio used one of the other remote control systems on the market at the time your remote control was manufactured.

Have direct tv service, bought a new 37 inch visio flat screen hd tv, need the code number to program my direct remote

could not find your brand at but this may work: " You may still find a setup code that works for your device by stepping through the library codes in your remote. The following instructions will help you do this.
Set the "Mode Switch" to the desired mode such as TV for a Television.
Press and hold the "Mute" button and the "Select" button until the visible LED blinks twice.
Enter the code "991" followed by the "device number"
for Televisions
for "AUX 1" devices - VCRs or DVDs
for "AUX 2" devices - Audio
You can step through the setup codes for this mode by pressing the "Channel Up" key to go forward through the codes or pressing the "Channel Down" key to go back to the previous codes.
You can try out each code by pressing one or more function keys such as power, volume or digit keys.
When you've found the setup code that works for your device, press the "Select" key. "

Yesterday we bought a Visio VF550M from Costco. We want to use the remote that came with it instead of Direct Dish Satellite Remote. The Visio is easier and simpler to use. How can we do this?? At this...

Direct Dish.... :p only outputs to your TV on channel 3 or 4. This leads to only using Direct's remote. I would suggest to try going over to DISH Network as their remote is much better and will work the TV......

Use Visio just for dvds?


I will post this answer just in case anyone else out there has this problem.

Press the button on the remote that says AV. The blue screen saying "no signal" disappears and you can watch videos without a server or antenna connection.

Direct tv remote code

Here is a copy of the manual if you don't have one

Remote control programming starts on pg 76-78

If the tv isn't listed on the on screen controls, you might want to check with Direct TV on getting hold of another remote that can be programmed. Sometimes software update are done to the tuners as well but usually there never done for adding new models to TVs.

One thing I never liked about Direc TV was I always had to update the TV tuners every two years because of new features.
