Olevia remote control codes

Can't find remote control code for Olevia TV to use with universal remote

I've had an Olevia 542 B11 TV since 12/06. We were informed that since it is a new company, not every product they have has been assigned a code for programing to a universal remote. That was 11 months ago and I still haven't been able to find a code on, or off, Olevia's site.

We have cable and the remote is a UR5U-MDVR that uses a 3 digit code. Have tried the '506' and '127' that were suggested for other units but, no success.

Should I resolve myself to using multiple remotes?

    Premtech - Thanks for the assist. I did try it for about 15 minutes, but I'm not sure if I gave it enough time. The instructions tell you to repeat the cycle of 'Power' and 'Channel' buttons, but they don't tell you how long to continue before your moving over the same territory again.

    I'm not sure if I only covered 1/4 of the options or if I've hit the same areas four times!

NO codes work for the Olevia Syntax models, and NO they did not update anything to down load like they promised.NONE- Period. Do not waste your time. I wasted 8 months. You may either get used to a few remotes, or you can go to a website (x10 products) and pick up their learning remote. I paid 50.00. Line up the old and new, and the x10 product will learn to operate your cable box, TV, DVR, DVD and everything else. ( Took about 30 minutes plus my teenager) Now I have one remote control for everything, plus it looks great with the digital screen and channel icons, as well as readable buttons so you do not have to be a teenager or put on your glasses to operate it.

Have you tried the code searching feature on the remote? I'll look through some service manuals I have, paper versions, for Olevia codes but it may take me a week or more.. Until then try the remote control search feature in the instruction panel that came with your remote and let me know..

    There are some 900 code combinations and the best way to find whether or not you've covered them is to try and keep some count - even if not accurate... I've done that in a few cases where it's taken 20 minutes before something worked.

    Good Luck!

    I'll still try and check for the manual..

    Meanwhile try this site, it might help.

How do you program a olevia 542-b11 with the tv buttons ,I do not have a remote.

Without a remote control, you can't. To select a proper universal remote control, you should know about the number of digits to its set-up codes. There are 3 digit, 4 digit, 5 digit, 2 digit and even single digit codes, to some brand devices. After confirming this, check the sites linked here. Both the sites have set-up code list and set-up procedure to many popular brand remote controls. Check which brand remote control has set-up code/s to your device brand, and buy that one according to availability. Brand name of the remote control isn't a matter, but it should have set-up codes in its code list, to the device brand you have.
Please note: Every new universal remote control will have set-up code list, and set-up procedure along with its pack. Never accept a remote control, that hasn't both of this. For more details about the set-up codes, visit the sites Check this site too.
Universal remote controls are available at most of the electronic spare part selling shops. Visit some online sites too, which deals with electronic spare parts.

I need a remote code for a rca remote for the olevia remote control can you help

Unfortunately Olevia is one of those t.v. brands that is not compatible with many universal remote controls. They make a Universal Learning Remote specifically available from Olevia on their web site that may solve your problem if your universal remote control turns out not to be compatible with your Olevia television.

As for what codes you can try, there are many, and the codes depend on your universal remote control brand. Many times, an RCA code will work for Olevia televisions, so you should try the RCA codes that come with your universal remote first, before trying any of these other codes.

If you have a Dish Network Universal Remote you can use code 506 or 127.

Direct TV remote codes vary by model number on the remote control, but the following codes work with most Direct TV remotes: 506, 127, 11144, 11240, 11331, 11610

Cable Vision use code 506

Charter and Movie Box remotes you can use 1144 or 1178

Comcast codes are 11144, 11240, 11331, 21075, 10159, 10154, and 10088

Cox code is 1610

Brighthouse remote codes are 1610, 1144, 1240, and 1331

Time Warner remote codes are 1610, 1144, 1240, 1331, 432, and 1610

If none of these brands are what you are looking for as far as your Universal Remote Control is concerned, many universal remote controls will work with Olevia televisions if you use the codes found under the RCA, LG, Phillips, and Yamaha in the code listing included with your remote control.
