If your LG TV came with the IR blaster cable you will need to set one of the sensors in front of the sensor on your DirecTV box. Then go to your TV setting and select Video Input and Select the Input Port that your DirecTV box is hooked to. (In my case HDMI1). Then you will select that you are trying to sync your Service Provider and it will give you a list of device manufacturers. Select DirecTV limited and it will start to give you codes to try. You test these by trying the channel button up or down. If the channel changes you have found your code and you will click on "Yes" and you are ready to control. The "Guide" button will now bring up the DirecTV Guide and you no longer need the DirecTV remote.
"This TV utilizes new remote control signal codes and may not be compatible with your existing universal remote (e.g. satellite box remotes, cable box remotes, generic universal remotes, etc.). Over time, newer universal remote controls that become available should pick up the new TV codes."
I have a ILO 27" TV Comcast had no suggestions for programming their remote. I went thru the ENTIRE code book and finally came up with one that worked: Emerson Code #0463 for my COMCAST universal remote.
I had the same problem trying to program my satellite remote to work with the ILO tv. I found that the emerson codes DO work. Yes local cable remotes will work as long as you have the code and the brand is getting more popular. The code that worked with both cable companys, Charter and DirecTv was 10171 I believe. You can find it under the Emerson codes. Hope this was helpful.
