I have direct tv and bought sony tv how do i program remote to tv
I followed the directions in the DTV manual on how to program the remote. Some of the options the manual tells me to click on are not even in the menu prompts...so I can't get it programmed. However, when I first turned the tv on, I was able to use the DTV remote to change the channels and look at the program guide, all without doing any programming. However, the DTV remote cannot control the volume or on/off without programming it. Can someone offer some suggestions? Thanks.

Hi, post the direct TV remote # and the box model # so I can lookup the info for you. you probably already know directTVs remote programming is built into the menu (codes and all).
You did not mention if the DT remote powers the TV on or off?
post more info if you still need help and I'll try
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.
Go to Best Buy and buy the DirectTV Universal Remote Control Model RC64 ($20). It will control both the Satellite Receiver and the Olevia TV (Everything on the Olevia except the A-B-C-D Guide buttons). The Remote Control User Guide lists the control codes, four for the Olevia. The codes are:
Satellite Receiver: 00392
Olevia 235-T12: 11610 (last of the four codes listed for Olevia)
