Question about Televison & Video
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. The site has set-up code list & set-up procedure to many popular brand remote controls. The site has general set-up codes to check with TVs and other devices are given, in the order of the 'device's brand name list' in alphabetical order. Set-up code list to many brand remote controls also is given. Pull up older posts. Search the sites by type in the brand name to your device in its search box at the top right part of the display window. It will help you to find the document easily.
• If your device does not respond to the remote after trying all codes listed or your brand is not listed in the code list, use the Auto Code Search method to program your remote.
• Sometimes the first code that "works" with your device may operate only a few functions of your device. There may be another code in the code list that performs more functions. Try other codes from the code list for more functionality.
This is a trial and error procedure; and quiet time consuming. You might have to check different codes said for your device.
Search the site by type in the "brand name" to your device; to which you want set-up codes; in the "Search box at the top right of the display window" to get gathered related posts.

SOURCE: Remote control programming codes
i have a GE t.v. and just bought the RCA DTA800 converter box. none of the codes that were in the manual worked for my t.v. can anyone help?

Try the RCA codes listed in the code book that came with your Dish remote. You will want to use the "AUX" button at the top of the dish remote. You will likely NOT get full functionality if it works at all, however, there is a chance you'll be able to change the channels and power the converter box on and off.
If the codes you have are segregated into categories of different devices, i.e. TVs, DVD players, etc. You probably will not be successful.
Also, there should be instructions in the remote manual that will tell you how to search all codes that are stored in the Dish remote.
While this may not solve your problem, I hope I've given you helpful information that will allow you to make an informed decision as to where to go from here.
Let me know if I can be of further assistance.

Yes, you can I just did it. I was reading everyone logs this weekeng and off to walmart i WENT. Got a 5 dollar remote. rca model rcr312w.
Contacted rca and it was simple as pointing at the dtv , holding down that button and entering in the code for Magnavox and It was on from there. We are happy with RCA.

You should have the instruction guide. If not look below. It's there but look closely for the guide itself and how to increase it's size to readable.
Check on the back of the TV to see if there is a 3 and 4 setting, If so, set to 3.
With nothing connected to the tv, and using the tv's remote, scan for channels. It should come up with only channel 3.
Then using the remote with advanced options, set the the input to either antenna or auto.
Connect the antenna cable to input on the converter box. Using the supplied cable connect the output from the converter box to
the TV. Turn the TV on first, followed by the converter box.
Then follow the instructions.
Not really easy so you'll have to fight your way thru it.
Finding the right setting for the antenna will probably take the most time, requiring a station scan after each adjustment.
