The TV does not react to neither the TV remote control or the cable box remote control. I replaced the batteries to both controllers with no avail. The cable company gave me another control and it did not work. The shop replaced a digital board inside of the TV, and the TV responded for about a week. Now, in order for me to lower the volume or to turn off the TV, I have to do it manually. Please help.

I had this happen on mine after about 3 years. Luckily it was on extended warranty. At first the techs re-soldered the connections to the board for the IR sensor but the problem was still intermittent. The next time they replaced the mainboard and all is well - just like new.

1) This unit requires a converter. It only has an NTSC tuner not ATSC.
2) The remote will not control the converter as the coverter is too new.
Your best bet for having a songle control for all devices is to purchase a universal remote that will control the converter. I am not aware of one, but must admit that I have not really looked much. To control the number of devices you would like, the control will likely cost in the $10-$15 range.
I happen to be a Jumbo Universal remote Expert here at Fixya, so I hope I can help. It is possible that this remote just won't run your Motorola cable box, but I wouldn't give up until I had tried the codes from the list in the manual, as well as run through the auto-setup feature of the remote for CBL and for SAT, where it just tries all the cable box codes one at a time.
I was able to find a working motorola codes for an Innovage Jumbo Remote, a three digit code remote you might as well try: 051.
You have probably tried the codes for Motorola (031) and GI (000, 032) from the manual using these steps:
1. Turn on the device with which you want to use the remote control. 2. Locate a 3-digit code for your device. (000, 031 & 032 for example) 3. Press and hold the corresponding button on the remote control (CBL) for approximately three seconds. The POWER INDICATOR illuminates. 4. Enter the 3-digit code for your device within 30 seconds. The POWER INDICATOR shuts off. 5. Press the ON /OFF button to verify correct code entry. If the device shuts off, the code was entered correctly. If the device does not shut off, repeat steps 3-4, using a different code located on the Code List.
If those are still a bust, try the GI SAT codes 018 & 019.
Have you tried the following steps with both CBL and then SAT to search it's database?
1. Turn on the device with which you want to use the remote control. 2. Press and hold the corresponding button on the remote control (SAT or CBL) until the POWER INDICATOR on the remote control illuminates. The remote control is in programming mode. 3. Press and release ON /OFF. The POWER INDICATOR on the remote control flashes once and stays on indicating the unit is in Power Scan mode. 4. Press CHANNEL UP or CHANNEL DOWN repeatedly until the device turns off. 5. When the device turns off, press any key to store the code. 6. Press any other button. If the device responds, the remote control has been programmed. If the device does not respond, repeat steps 2-5.
Is your remote one of the "universal" ones that allows you control multiple boxes?
If so, be sure you are selecting the correct input (TV, DVD, AUX, SAT...etc).
It's also possible that you will have to reprogram your TV to accept the remote's input. This can happen even if the TV and the Remote were sold together. Check your TV/remote manual for the syncing instructions and associated codes.
The set may have defaulted to a front panel lockout. To defeat that on the front of the set hold down the MENU button for 15 seconds and see if it will then power up. I know that doesn't solve the problem with the remote but one step atta time. These sets are prone to leaky switches on the control panel and when that happens the micro cannot accept two different commands at the same time. That could be why the remote is not working.
Before trying anything more intrusive, replace the batteries in the remote.
If that doesn't work, check whether your remote is designed to be able to control multiple devices (DVD player and Sat Receiver as well as TV for instance). It's not unknown for little fingers to switch the remote over to trying to control something else. If there's a button on the remote marked "TV", press that and see if normal serviceis resumed as a result.
I have the same problem. When I move the 8300HDC away from the TV, or power off the TV, the remote responds. There seems to be some kind of RF interference, which makes no sense since the TV shouldn't emit RF, and the the box should be using IR only for remote input. My TV is a 46" LCD Samsung. Try turning off the TV and see if the 8300HDC responds to powering on and off with the remote.
