Question about Sony Televison & Video

1 Answer

I recently changed my tv service provider from Comcast to DirectTV. I cannot program my directtv remote to change the volume. The receiver is a Sony, model number STR DE 598. The tv is a Mitsubishi (A)52" 720P DCR HDMI LCD PJ. The codes that Directtv technical support have had me to try and program their remote does not work. I need the code to program the remote (Directtv) to the receiver to change the volume.

    I still need a code that will work. I don't accept that there is not a code that will program the remote to the receiver. The remote does everything else on the Mit. tv except change the volume on the Sony receiver. I can except that the remote is not compatible with the receiver but I can't except that it's not compatible with the tv.

Sorry, your tv isn't officially supported by that remote. Your only option is to perform a code scan, maybe one from another tv will match yours.

    No remote has ever had all the codes for all the tv's - the memory of their chip is usually very limited - it never stores more than 300 full codes. Your remote has just a partially compatible set of commands. If you are not satisfied with it then your only option is to do a code scan as i said. If this also fails then you will not be able to use that remote with that tv - it's as simple as that.

The volume on my Direct TV remote isn't working for a brand new Sanyo TV. Don't I need a code to use, so it's volume will work, as well?

Hello, Terry -

You should have received a set of instructions with your Direct TV remote control with information on how to sync it with your Sanyo TV.

Did you check the DirectTV web site regarding information regarding the remote control? If not, look here:

As you scroll down that page you will see links to information regarding remote controls. Go through the information provided.

If the steps provided in the information links on the Support page do not correct your remote control problem, then, I recommend you call Direct TV Customer Service to be connected with a Technical Service Representative who can walk you through syncing the remote control with your TV and also have a set of iprinted nstructions sent to you via traditional mail or as an attachment to an email sent to you.

This is the telephone number to call:
You may need to provide your DirectTV account number and some other identifying information.

Best wishes.

My Comcast remote will control my LG LHB535 receiver/blue-ray player in all respects but the volume. I used code 20591.

You need to change the volume lock for the remote to go to your AV receiver, not the TV. By default all Volume control will go to the TV, but you can change volume lock to go to AV receiver instead. I switched to DirectTv and had to do the same thing, so I may not have the right term used on comcast, but essentially the same thing.

Cannot program remote control to receiver

You should have direct tv replace both units for you, They are providing the service and it is their responsibility to keep their customer up and working. A battery change should not affect the use of the product. There must be something wrong with the receiver if it cannot operate correctly after such a normal use from the user as a battery change. I hope this helps you with your problem.

Remote to my tivo won't work my on/off and volume on Akai TV

I recently bought a used LCT2060 that had no remote. I figured my comcast cable remote would work without a problem but it didn't. So 3 universal remotes later I found my solution...a radio shack2_bing.gif universal gamer remote. It controls up to 5 components plus your xbox360, playstation and pc. The price on sale was a mere 12.97, not bad if you ask me. Hope this helped. The code that worked for the Akai2_bing.gif was 11676. Take care...
