If your TV has a Menu button on its front panel, enter its Menu widow, surf through, come to wards picture control window, and make PIP function OFF. If it has no such button, you must have its remote control to turn it OFF.
I used 0178 to program my universal remote. You can also try 10056, 10178,10864,10885,11756,10056,11758, and 11499. Then you can try by dropping the "1" from the front of these codes.
Most good remotes have a programming function if this does not work, where the remote will "learn" the proper code. The actual button remote codes are as follows: 0 00117 1 00121 2 00119 3 00123 4 00116 5 00120 6 00118 7 00122 8 00245 9 00249 Vol + 00183 Vol - 00187 Mute 00057 Channel + 00181 Channel - 00185 Power 00053 Enter 00164 Last 00247 Menu 00171 Guide 00244 Up 00168 Down 00166 Left 00170 Right 00037 OK 00164 Sleep 00054 PIP 00197 Info 00251 PIP Swap 00198 PIP Mode 00199 Exit 00216 Audio 00059 Input 00090 Wide 00138 TV 00110 AV 00105 Component 00231 HDMI 00174 MTS 00055 CC 00025 Zoom + 00165 Zoom - 00169 Freeze 00200 RGB 00253 PIP Ch + 00196 PIP Ch - 00203 PIP Input 00199 PIP Size 00201
The remotes for the TV and Direct TV box are universal remotes that can operate very basic functions for whatever else they are programmed to control. If you can program the TVs remote to operate the Direct TV box it will basically only control power and channel. Maybe something else, but not much. The same goes for the Direct TV remote. It will control basic functions on the TV; power, channel & volume. Best bet would be to purchase a universal remote that can learn functions from the original or just keep both remotes available by the TV.
PIP (Picture In Picture) - Your television should have the capability because it has two built in tuners. It can show two channels at the same time or show one channel and one video source (whatever is connected to the audio/video inputs). However, because you are using DTV (Direct TV) you are very limited because you are not using the built in tuners on your television. You should be able to see one picture from the DTV channel and one from lets say your DVD player. If your DTV box has two tuners built in then you should have the PIP capabilities from your DTV and not your television. I'm guessing your DTV is a single tuner (one satellite cable to your box). If you want to watch two different channels you'll need to either upgrade your box or attach another box to your television.
Option: you could also connect an antenna to your television this way you can use the PIP function. Obviously you'll only be able to view whatever local stations you can get with the antenna. Depending on where you live you might or might not have a lot of channels to choose from.
It sounds as if you have inadvertently selected the 'Aux' function. Pressing the 'TV' button (should be close to the Aux and others) should restore full control.
Since the volume generally means 'TV Volume,' this function often stays effective but the other controls will not respond, including 'Power.'
This happens to us all the time with our Dish remote which also has 4 basic functions.
If your remote transmitter is multifunction, such sa TV; DVD; and VCR operative; You may be in the wrong mode. Press the TV function first and then try to change the volume. If you still have problems, the remote may be defective.
