Check to see if there is a switch somewhere on the remote that allows you to select between the TV and the DVD player. If not, it is possible that the remote or the DVD player's IR decoding is not working properly.

If you cannot resolve this, call the tech support for the TV. If the set is under warranty, it is best to persue this right away.

How to play dvd


If you are using the built-in DVD tray, press TV (in case you have a Cable Set-top box). Then press Input and navigate with the up/down keys to the line labeled DVD. Then press OK. Finally press play on the Polaroid TDA-03211C remote or on the side of the TV. The remote play button is in the center of the row below the row with skip reverse and skip forward buttons.

If you are using a different DVD player, press the input button and then the up/down arrows to get to the input for your DVD player. Then press the DVD button to control the DVD player.

If you are using a universal remote control, then you may need to program it to the TV and the DVD player separately. (Some universal remotes may only support the TV functions of this TV.) Make sure that your universal remote has an input button that works. You may need to try multiple codes for Polaroid TVs.

I hope this helps.

(note: the DVD must be correctly installed so that the printed side (label) is facing the front of the TV. If you do not get a response, try the disc in another DVD player. The DVD player laser tracking can fail without warning. If the disc plays in other units, this may be the problem.)

Make sure nothing is blocking the front of your DVD player. You need a clear line of sight between the lower right corner of the DVD player where the sensor is and your remote. If your DVD player is sitting high on a shelf or lower than you are when you are sitting in front of the TV, it may be at a bad angle to "see" the remote.

This will sound crazy, but it often works: While standing up, point your remote at the wall opposite your DVD player at about the same height, and see if it works! This is a sure sign that the angle between where you are using your remote and your DVD player needs to be adjusted.

FYI- this often works because bouncing the remote beam off of an opposite wall spreads it more than pointing toward it, and is a good way to test your remote.

Do you have an iPhone, iPad or iPod touch? If so try i-Got-Control and the IRB1 attachment. It has codes for the Star Choice built in and if you need others, you can always learn from the other remote you have. This will put all the remotes (including your TV and DVD player) into the same iPhone (or other iOS device). www.i-got-it.com

You should use the component video input (which ever the TV has), you will get better pictures than the S-video.
As far as the remote control for the DVD, keep using the one that comes with your DVD player, Comcast remote does not always work, beside you get full function using the DVD's remote, that is how I use my DVD, same for the TV, Comcast remote my not be able to send out the signals to the ATV for selecting the input sources on the TV. Comcast remote is not a full functions remote.

FIOS remote


I am a FiOs Technician from Pennsylvania.. The most common occurence of this problem I encounter is when the TV is a dual-device.. Meaning that it is a TV with a DVD player or a VCR built into it.. Whenever this occurs, I do the 922 method using either the DVD or the AUX button on the remote instead of the TV button.
By the Way, if this works you must change the volume control to the other device using the 955 code in the Motorola manual afterwards in order to control the volume

I hope this helps

LG LCD and LG DVD remote codes


If both units are LG you don't have to program anything. Below the power button are 6 buttons labeled TV, DVD, etc. As soon as you push the DVD button the remote should work it. Remember to push the TV button again to make it work the TV.

Direct TV Remote - No Codes Operate TV


I couldn't find any info on that particular model, but if it has a built in DVD or VHS player you cannot program the Direct TV Remote to it. You will have to use both remotes. The Direct TV one to change the channels and the TV remote for the TV functions.
