I am looking for a code list like what you get w/ cheaper remotes
I am looking for a code list like what you get with a cheap remote. When it up dates via web not all the functions on the device work poperly. I would expect a much more refined database for this expensive a remote. I do realize this remote is older model, but top of line when purchased. I moved right after purchase and it went to storage and I just now found it and would like to be able to use it without alot of hassle. thanks in advance. drjohn

The web-based configuration is the only way to configure Harmony remotes. If you have older equipment, the commands may not be complete. But if you have the original remote, you can fairly easy teach the Harmony the missing functions. These functions can afterwards be used from the little window.
Code lists for Harmony does not exist.

Look inside the battery compartment and check the label. There may be a version code listed on that label. The GE remotes were manufactured by Jasco and the code lists are here: http://jascoproducts.com/support/ge-universal-remote-codes . Use the correct code list for the version for your remote. Note: these codes work for remotes sold in 2006 and later. For older GE remotes that use a 3-digit code, try this site: http://www.eliztech.com/remotes/ge-new-3digit-tv-codes.php .
I hope this helps.
(the remote control codes will often be limited to TVs that were sold at least 6 months before the remote was programmed. If your TV is newer than the remote, you may need to update your universal remote.)
look around on the web. their is a few sites that have codes for most brands of remotes/tvs.
but before you buy a new remote, research to see if remote will work with your device.
sometime it only works with limited features, sometimes you wont find your deivce on the list, in that case you will have to do a code search.
always do research on any device you buy.
cheaper is not always better.
If it's not in the list of TVs and codes that came with the remote (or should have) it means the set is too old to have been included although it shouldn't apply to DVD combos yet. Universals are very cheap, however, they sell in £1 or 99p stores here (I'm assuming you're in the USA?) so try another brand and see if your TV is listed. If possible, ask to look at the list before buying. Look online for lists of what remote covers which TVs. There may be partial success whereby some Sylvanian codes operate the TV section but not the player - or vice versa.
Finding a remote that is exactly like the old one can be difficult and sometimes expensive. However finding a very good replacement universal remote is sometimes cheaper and easier. I usually go to bhphotovideo.com and do a search for a cheap universal remote that has all the buttons you desire. Setting the code on the new remote, or any universal remote, is provided in the documentation as codes vary from remote to remote.
You can find a replacement remote typically for 10 dollars that will do everything that the old remote did. Also you can find one that looks better too.
Look it up in the owners manual. If you have a generic remote and lost the code listing most can be obtained online by going to the manufacturers website. It's also possible that if the remote is not working it is bad and needs replaced. As cheap as they are now that would be the easiest solution. Let me know how you make out.
It isn't very expensive, and can be found at many Target stores. You can even check its availability in your local Target on their website. I haven't deciphered the date code on the packages, but look for ones with an 8 or at least a 7 in the 4 digit code on the back.
One of the AKAI codes in the TV section of the code list works fine with this model TV. I forget which code it is at the moment or I'd list it here.
