I cannot get the universal remote from our Directv to work with our Sylvania 6727FDE. I have tried the codes it suggests and the ones for Funai, since that is the manufacturer, but to no avail. I tried their search, and that produced no results after about 35 minutes of channeling up. Any more ideas?
Ok i have a sylvania tv/vcr combo, similar problem, here's how i got the directv remote (RC23 & RC32) to operate basic t.v. functions:
-First i found the code that worked for the vcr (20000 in my case). -i programmed "AV1" to 20000, this allowed me to power the tv on/off, change the channels but not operate the volume, so... -after plugging in the 20000 code (with the slelector switch on AV1 still):
1. Press and hold the MUTE and SELECT keys until the green light under the TV position flashes twice, then release both keys. 2. Using the number keys, enter 9-9-3. (The green light will flash twice after the 3.) 3. Press select
that allowed me to operate the t.v. volume from the remote w/ the selector switch in any position, the only thing is i have to switch to AV1 in order to power off the T.v.
hope this helps in your case

Can't find a code to program your universal remote to control your Polaroid HDTV / DVD combo? Can't find a listing for Polaroid DVD in your remote control code list?
Many manufacturers recycle remote control codes, so often the best solution is to use the code search function of your universal remote.
Here are some remote control codes that have worked to control Polaroid HDTVs:
My 19" w/DVD uses the following Mitsubishi code: 10178
Dish Network remotes: 627, 659, or 688
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.
Use the mitsubshi tv codes they worked for me.
Try Element codes if they are listed in your remote code list.
I installed systems for Directv, and whenever i went into a home that had a combo tv / vcr, i could never get a set to program properly. At the most on some sets the remote would turn the tv set on and off, but others functions were non responsive.
slide the mode switch to tv, hold down mute and select until the light blinks enter "9-9-1-------1" when the lights finish blinking start pushing push the channel up button. this is a code search. It will transmit every code it knows one at a time. when the tv turns off you've found a code that works. turn it back on, try the volume and see if it works correctly. when finished press select.
most tv/dvd and/or vcr combos won't work with tv codes.
Directv has posted many new codes on their website for combo tv's Go to [ www.directv.com/remote ]to look up the latest codes
read the programming section for the remote as there are many customizable features on the remote that most people aren't aware of.
What you can try:
- Check the DirecTV code set for the following brands:
Funai, Symphonic, Sylvania, Aventura, Durabrand,
ESA, Magnavox, INSIGNIA, and Misakai
Your set and the above-named are all built by Funai.
Even if you find one that works, it probably will not give you full functionality as would the original TV remote, which you can probably find at http:\\www.remotes.com
Before you buy any 'universal' remote, please don't expect it to absolutely work with your set; there is no such thing as a 'universal' remote. If you find one that interests you, take the time to look up the mfr.'s website and check the code lists for your set.
I am a installer for Directv and tv's that incorporate a dvd and/or vcr usually do not respond to the directv remote. Trust me I tried all the codes. I did find programming the av1 on the dtv remote for the dvd player would control the volume and on/off for the tv. Try the dvd codes rather than the tv codes. If no luck I recommend a Harmony remote which works well with combo tvs. Although expensive they are you must consider the convenience factor they provide.
I had the same problem programming my directv remote to recognize the ssc719c. What finally worked was programming AV1 (not 'TV') with the sylvania DVD code 20821. This allowed me to turn the tv on and off and change tv channels, but wouldn't allow me to mute or change the volume. To fix this, (at least in my case) you have to program your remote to recognize the volume and mute buttons in the AV1 slide setting. I assume other (non directv) remotes similarly disable the volume and mute buttons when the remote is not in satellite or tv mode. Anyway, here are the instructions that activated the volume & mute buttons on my remote: "Depending on how you set up your remote, the VOL and MUTE may control the volume only on your TV, regardless of the position of the MODE switch. This remote can be set up so that the VOL and MUTE keys work only with the component selected by the MODE switch. To enable this feature, perform the following steps: 1. Press and hold the MUTE and SELECT keys until the green light under the DIRECTV position flashes twice, then release both keys. 2. Using the number keys, enter 9-9-3. (The green light will flash twice after the 3.) 3. Press and release the VOL+ key. (The green light flashes 4 times.) Now the VOL and MUTE keys will work only for the component selected by the MODE switch position."
To sum up: if you find a code for your remote that will turn your tv on and off, but doesn't seem to do much of anything else, it's probably the right code; your remote is probably set up not to recognize volume or mute inputs in AV1 or AV2. You change that using a remote-specific code that's probably found somewhere on the remote maker's website.
We have a Sylvania 6313CB TV/VCR combo. I bought a universal remote and the code would not work when I tried to program it to the "TV" button using all those possible codes listed in the books. So, on the universal remote, there was a button named "VCR" and when I programmed in the code "0000" all worked. This was a $6.00 universal remote named "One For All" we bought at the Big Lots store.
Specifically, here is what I did:
Turned TV on
Pushed the "VCR" button and light blinked once
Pushed and held the "set" button until it blinked twice
Released the "set" button and entered the numbers "0000"
Pushed the on/off button and it worked including volume, channel up/down and channel change by entering the channel number.
Hope this works for you too.
