Your TV is made by Daewoo and is distributed by Daytek. If you call the 800 number on the warranty card you will reach Daytek.
So, what you need to know is this:
#1. A lot of new products won't have a website available. That does not say anything to their quality or the company, just that you've bought a new product and you're one of the first purchasers.
#2. A lot of times if you buy a "no name" TV, you're actually getting components inside the TV that are made by brand name manufacturers. For example, "Prima" uses LG panels in some of their plasma TVs (as well as Daytek). How do I know this? Because I'm the authorized service provider for Daytek, and Prima and quite a few other "no name" TVs, and I've been working on LCD and Plasma since they came out, as well as having worked in the electronics repair industry for over 20 years. I own an Insignia 42" LCD and am quite happy with it.
#3. Most new products that have remote controls will not have codes available for them no matter what brand of universal remote you buy. You have to wait for the people who make the universal remote to have time to make a code for this new brand of TV. This can take up to a year for cable companies, and cheaper universal remotes may never get the code. Expensive universal remotes may be able to have their firmware updated through the internet, so adoption of new codes for new products may happen faster.
#4. Stores like Walmart and Costco are excellent places to buy products like this because they usually have a "no questions asked" return policy if you get the TV back to the store within the stores time limit for returns (some stores are 15 days, some are 30 days, phone the store and ask them). I had purchased a 40" Digistar LCD TV from Walmart what had a flickering problem, I took it back the next day without any problem at all. Then I bought a 42" Insignia Plasma TV from Future Shop that I wasn't happy with. I took it back 3 days later and had no problem at all. As long as you know the stores policy for returns and follow the policy, you won't have any problems either.
#5. Try to avoid buying big-ticket items from smaller stores unless you know their return policies. Some smaller stores will not accept returns on LCD monitors, TVs or plasma TVs but instead require you to handle any problems through the manufacturer.
#6. Best bet it to call Daytek and ask them if they know of any universal remotes that work on that particular model.

OK GANG: HERE GOES, I PURCHASED A RCA REMOTE (RCR312W), 3 CHOICE FUNCTION.
I HAVE 2 DIFFERENT TV'S, DAEWOO TV AND A PANASONIC TV/VCR. THE REMOTE HAS
WORKED ON BOTH SETS. I DROPPED THE REMOTE WHEN IT HIT THE FLOOR THE BACK
FLAP HOLDING THE BATTERYS KICKED OFF AND ONE BATTERY FELL OUT. I WENT NUTS
FOR 2 DAYS TRYING TO GET THE CODE FOR THE DAEWOO. TODAY 11/14/2008 A FRIEND
GAVE ME A PANASONIC TV/VCR 20". AGAIN I TRIED TO FIND THE CODE, DIDN'T WORK OUT EASILY, AGAIN DRIVING ME LOONY TUNES IF YAA KNOW WHAT I MEAN.
HERE IS THE SKINNY: SOLUTION TO YOUR PROBLEM !!!! IT DOES WORK.
1, TURN ON THE COMPONENT YOU WANT TO PROGRAM.
2, PRESS AND RELEASE THE COMPONENT BUTTON ON YOUR REMOT THAT CORRESPONDS TO THE COMPONENT YOU WANT THE REMOTE TO OPERATE.
TV, VCR, ETC... THE ILLUMINATED ON-OFF BUTTON WILL TURN ON AND STAY ON.
3, NOW PRESS BOTH BUTTONS ON-OFF AND TV, OR: ON-OFF AND CBL. WHAT EVER.
THE ON-OFF BUTTON ON TOP OF THE REMOTE WILL TURN OFF, KEEP PRESSING
AND IT WILL COME BACK ON AND STAY ON. RELEASE THE BUTTONS,BOTH.
ON-OFF WILL STAY ON NOW.
4, KEEP POINTING THE REMOTE AT THE COMPONENT, THE REMOTE AND THE TV
NEED TO TALK TO EACH OTHER,(MAKES SENSE.)
5, GO TO THE BOTTON OF THE REMOTE AND PRESS THE "PLAY" BUTTON,
RELEASE. "" KEEP PUSHING THE PLAY BUTTON EVERY 5 SECONDS,
UNTIL THE TV TURNS OFF"". OR THE VCR, OR THE CBL, WHATEVER YOU ARE
6, NOW: PRESS AND RELEASE THE "REVERSE" BUTTON, THIS IS AFTER THE TV
HAS TURNED OFF. TV SHOULD TURN BACK ON WHEN THE "REVERSE" BUTTON
7, IF THIS WORKS THE LAST STEP IS TO HIT THE "STOP" BUTTON,
THIS WILL SAVE THE SETTING. REMOTE SHOULD BE PROGRAMED AND TURN
THE TV ON AND OFF. YOU DON'T NEED THE SILLY CODE NUMBER, THE REMOTE
DOES THE ACTIVE PROGRAMMING AUTOMATIC.
HOPE THIS HELPS YAA ALL... "PEACE".........OKIE

I don't know if you guys even need this advice anymore, as it's 1-2 years late, but if your universal remote has a VCR setting, the Emerson 13" CRT TV/VCR combo I have operates under that mode.
The code I used was 002. These may also work: 278, 184, 479, 000, 121, 211, 037, 043, 061, 208
Remember, program your remote as if you were setting up a VCR (and NOT a TV). For instance, on my GE universal, I hold the "code search" button down until I get a steady light. I hit VCR, and then I entered 002. Works like a charm.
