We have followed the directions numerous times to program the remote and cannot get it to work? We just bought a 37" TV today and have a home theater system that we want to program into the remote to run both TV and sound system?

Re: Can't program the remote.
Hello, follow this link to download the manual and the codes for your remotes:
just right click and save as on the download links.
if this does not work you can try the search method,
this by either holding down the device button eg: TV or if you have one
the "magic" button for three seconds, a light should then flash twice
to say you have done this correctly.
then press the keys 991 then the power button.
you must now press the channel up key (ch+) possibly upto 150 times while the remote cycles through every code.
Once your tv or device switches off stop pressing the ch+ key and press the power button to make sure it switches back on,
(if you press ch+ too many times you can go back by pressing ch-)
When complete press the magic or device key again to save the settings (light should flash twice to confirm)
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

i got the same model tv, and had the same problem..call direct tv and tell them you just got the new polaroid tv...i take it you got it at wallmart......anyway,call them up and tell them you want them to send you a updated remote...since the tv is so new,(came out in october of 08)...your older remote doesnt have the new code for it.
go and buy another remote as this is the most useless waste of time when you keep getting the run around and no answers.what does it take to post a page with all the remote numbers on it they all come with the same page.
Most 'universal' remotes really aren't all that 'universal.'
We have two sets at home for which no one seems to have codes and one of them won't even program a 'learning remote' which is what you might need.
Trying to program a universal remote can sometimes be a frustrating process. Successful programming of a universal remote depends on whether the universal remote manufacturer included our company’s information in the remote when it was assembled. Then a cable company (ie., Comcast) or satellite provider (ie., Dish Network) orders their decoder box and universal remote control from a manufacturer (ie., Scientific Atlanta, Motorola, etc.), the decoder box manufacturer provides a list of all the possible remote controls this universal can duplicate. From that list the cable company or satellite selects which manufacture’s products to include on their new universal remote. Once those manufacturers names have been decided, they are placed on the universal remote and a numeric code is assigned. If they choose not to include our company on the universal remote, the universal remote may not access the Maxent screen. If you cannot locate Maxent on the list provided to you by the universal remote provider, please try the following: Through contact with various cable and satellite content providers we have developed a list of the most common numeric codes that are used with universal remotes. Content Provider/Most commonly used code Comcast: 1755 Comcast (ML-3251HLT Model): 0054 Insight: 1755 Direct TV: 11755 Dish Network: 742 Cable Vision: 165 Adelphia: 0156, 1755 Universal: 0762 One4All: 0036 Time Warner: 0230
We have identified other manufacturers of display products that have similar remote control information to ours. Depending on the universal remote you are using these manufacturers may work. Please use the documentation that accompanied your universal remote, and look up the following companies. Input the numeric code associate with that company. Gateway Sampo Viewsonic Magnavox Phillips Marantz Pilot If the universal remote you are trying to program contains a Code Search (the remote will scan through all the codes contained within the universal remote) function, we recommend that you try that procedure. It is possible that there may be another manufacturer code that may work with our monitor. You may also want to try a Learning Remote from another manufacturer. This type of remote control can absorb or record the information coming directly out of the Maxent remote control. The learning remote then duplicates that information and acts like the Maxent Remote control. This type of remote can also record the signal coming from your other universal remotes in the same manner. In which case you can use this learning remote for your entire audio video system
