Your TV should be an output, only the cables are different.

Let me know the exact model of your tv, and what cable you are using to connect it, so that I can give you more information.

I am trying to program my "Direct TV" remote to my Samsung LCD TV Series 5 and can not find the 5 digit code needed to do so.


If you have a DIRECTV white remote, press "menu" then "settings," "setup," "remote", and follow the on-screen instructions.
If using a gray or black remote,
  • Make sure your TV is turned on.
  • Slide the mode switch at top of remote to "TV".
  • Press and hold the MUTE button. This is located above the number 1 button.
  • While still holding down MUTE, press and hold the SELECT button until green light at the top of the remote flashes twice.
  • Then enter 9911, the green light on remote should flash twice.
  • Point remote at TV and press CHANNEL UP button. Tap the CHANNEL UP button repeatedly until the TV powers off.
  • When the TV powers off, press and release the SELECT button.

    Can set up th remote control for this tv with the direct tv cable remote


    Here's how to scan for TV codes on your DIRECTV remote

    1.Make sure your TV is turned on.

    2.Slide the mode switch at top of remote to "TV".

    3.Press and hold the MUTE button. This is located above the number 1 button.

    4.While still holding down MUTE, press and hold the SELECT button until green light at the top of the remote flashes twice.

    5.Then enter 991, the green light on remote should flash twice.

    5b. Press 1 again (it will flash twice again), then you press the power on button at the very top right.

    6.Point remote at TV and press CHANNEL UP button. Tap the CHANNEL UP button repeatedly until the TV powers off.

    *If you hit channel up very fast, you risk going past the code. Pressing channel down will back it up. I alway hit channel up very fast till the tv turns off, then back it up slowly till it comes back on.

    7.When the TV powers off, press and release the SELECT button.

    *Note: If the green light flashes three times before TV responds, then all codes have been cycled through. Our remote controls are guaranteed to program to your DIRECTV receiver, however your TV may not be compatible with our remote control.

    20 year old Quasar colour TV (no remote)


    That is because the switches of the front panel buttons are stuck or defective.

    Try first unplugging power for ten minutes, this probably wont work.

    To fix this the TV must be taken apart from an expert, and front panel replaced.

    You can enquiry here for parts.

    What you can do at home, is getting a replacement remote and using TV with a remote, or buying a freeview box, and watching and changing channels through the box.

    You can get a replacement remote here: Replacement Remote Control orReplacement Remotes

    My suggestion, if it is supported in your area, get a set top box with 30 channels : Freeview - digital TV from Argos.

    Connect ILO DVDR05 to a digital set top box tuner


    Just run your outputs from your cable to the ILO inputs, then your ilo ouputs to the tv inputs. Use Cable remote to control channels, use ILO source button on remote to access the correct input setting on ILO. AND YES< you have to do this EVERY TIME you turn the ILO on to watch tv.. I have mine hooked up this way to record from my convertor box and My husband hates it.(when he just wants to watch tv.)

    Set top box and remote control


    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.
