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?

Re: Visio TV and Direct TV remote

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

Re: Visio TV and Direct TV remote

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

Hi, In the direct tv settings you have to set it back to the vizio, direct TV builds in this remote programming feature, of course the TV needs to be on showing the direct TV menu first,

My picture display is narrow and does not cover the screen.

Does the Genie box have screen settings in in? Sometimes hd will show in smaller screens. Makes the picture nicer. If you adjust the screen size with your remote the high definition "niceness" will not be there.

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.

I have a Visio LCD TV 2 years old not working -- i have a backlight but not screen

about a year ago our visio tv started having lines going up and down from the bottom to the top. we called direct tv and they could not find anything wrong with the cable. the problem got better and then worse. finally we called the tv repair man and he said it was the monitor and that it cost more to replace the part than it does to buy a new tv. that means after about a year that we purchased it the tv monitor was bad. now what do we do?

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.

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.
