Re: vizio and the directv dvr

Vizio recommends using code 11758 or 10178 for Cable/Satellite universal remotes that use five digits such as DirecTV. For four digit Cable/Satellite universal remotes , use 1758 or 0178. For three digit Cable/Satellite universal remotes, such as Dish or Echostar, use 627. These codes typically make the Power, Volume and Mute functions work.

I have purchased a new vizio Tv and have loaded all the commands from Vizio on to my DirectTV remote but the volume and on and off commands will not work on my directtv remote but everything else work

You need to enter the device codes for your TV into the remote. Sometimes there are multiple codes for a given brand so you may have to try more than one to get all functions working.

Polaroid HDTV Remote Codes


Here are some remote control codes that have worked to control Polaroid HDTVs:

  1. My 19" w/DVD uses the following Mitsubishi code: 10178
  2. Dish Network remotes: 627, 659, or 688
  3. DirecTV RC64 remote control revealed a code of 10835. This means that 10835, 0835, 835 or some variant many work with many programmable remote controls. On my DirecTV DVR system, this was indicated as a Moxell and/or Motorola TV code.
  4. Use the mitsubshi tv codes they worked for me.
  5. Try Element codes if they are listed in your remote code list.

I hope that helps.

Why can't i see 1080p programs on my directv hd dvr? The test on the hdr says my receiver doesn't receive 1080p. My tv is a Sharp LC-62C42U which is suppose to receive 1080p!

Your DVR can't detect whether your TV can do HD or not. If the message is stating that your receiver (which is your DVR) can't receive 1080P, then you'll need to contact DirecTV for assistance. You may need to replace your DVR.

Intermittently my Vizio model e370va volume will rise on its own and get distorted then turn off and in a few seconds, turn on the TV. Visio tried replacing the power board. Same problem. Replaced the TV...

I was having the same issue. I found this on Fixya and it seems to have worked.

Okay I just called and found this out. I have the 32 inch vizio hd flat screen. My problem with weak and fluctuating volume, was that I have a cable box. Go into menu, then audio and under the advanced audio section you will see srs trusurround HD and srs trusurround. Basically this function automatically adjusts volume levels for satelites and whatnot. But because cable boxes automatically have this feature you could just turn off the srs trusurround. Hopefully that should help you.

Programming with DirecTV remote

Since the flood of new models is great, your remote will never have the capability to control all brands and models. Vizio (like many others) is a very new name in the marketplace so if they did not choose to mimic the IR system of another, more wide-spread brand, you may never have a code set in proprietary remote such as yours (and mine from Dish Network). Even the 'learning' remote I bought will not accept the control signals from the lousy Ilo we own either. Your provider, DirecTV may have some newly developed partially effective code sets so check the support section of their website.

Directv Tivo recorder no remote programming code for Visio 37''

If it were a Tivo series 3 you might have better luck with it.

I've had my series 2 Tivo for about 2 1/2 years and never found the correct codes for it. I think it works off of a list of TVs manufactures about 3 years ago.

Verizon remote won't work

I am a Verizon tech and the remotes we use work for Vizio sets just fine. If for some reason the remote wont work and he tried 3 different ones then it has to be your set. I set FIOS up all day and have no trouble with those TVs

Vizio codes for cable remote control

I don't have any trouble getting my directv remote to run my Vizio. I can't get my Vizio remote to run my directv hd dvr receiver. The Vizio remote is way cooler. I would rather use that one. Can anyone help?
