Where can i find a remote, or is there a compatible universal remote?

You don't say what is the make and model, but there are many remotes for sale on eBay, where I have bought 2 replacements. Also the Logitech Harmony series of universal remotes should be suitable. I have one and it works quite well. There are other brands also.

Will the codes for the remote from the system's manual work for any other remote?

The picture suggests you may be trying to use an RCA universal remote to control your receiver. If this is correct, you can use the code search feature to find a suitable code. If you search through all codes stored in the remote without success, you may have to try another universal remote. All universal remotes do not store all possible codes.

Remote control code for Logic 3 Tx101 soundstage 5.1

Your Yamaha soundbar may work only with its own remote. Otherwise, the soundbar signals could interfere with the TV remote signals. You can try searching with your universal remote to find a code that will work.

Hi, I have a Yamaha rx-v450 amp that won't change sound modes (stereo, hall, jazz, rock etc) from the remote control but it works from the buttons on the unit. I've checked my remote by pointing it...

Hi! Transmitting doesn't mean it's working, What you should do to test it is use a good quality universal remote such as a Logitech Harmony and first program the preset code for your receiver into the Universal Remote. If that works, you know your OEM remote has gone bad, at least for those buttons. If it doesn't then you you should attempt to have your Universal Remote "learn" the IR signals from your receiver's remote If the controls still don't work, there is a problem with either your IR receiver on your receiver or the the circuitry that proceesses the signals into commands. Good Luck!

Pioneer receiver sx-315

With persistence, I was able to program the Universal Remote Control provided with the cable box to control my new used Pioneer SX-315 receiver. I now can control the tv volume, cable box, auxiliary stereo receiver with speaker system with one remote. Thank goodness I did not have to resort to buying a Pioneer remote control.

I was able to program another previously unused universal remote which I purchased several years ago. However, since the other remote control did not list the Vizio TV. That brand is too new for the remote.

I would like to know the code for my dvd player remote so i can my amp remote

Codes are made up by the universal remote control manufacturers.

DVD player/TV manufacturers do not make codes for their products.

You will have to look in the instructions for your remote control to find a code. If you cannot find one, you will have to try the listed codes one at a time to see if any work. If that also fails, you will have to contact the manufacturer of the universal remote. Try going to their website. E-mail them if you have to.

Not all universal remotes will work with all devices. This is why universal remotes are not really universal.
