Get new ones i just had 2 boxes replaced 1 was sd-hbh and the other was a hi-def box both were fried cause the nit wit that set up the system didn't ground the dish and we got a lightning strike that fried them.... i would call direct tv or whoever your sat provider is because mine were replaced for free with 2 brand new boxes.... and you should check to see if your dish is grounded it will usually be grounded to a water pipe somewhere in the area of where your multi-switch is located

I think you mean Hughs when you're referring to your direct Tv remote? And you want that remote to turn on/off your Sylvania Tv, right?
I'd need to know the Hughs model number on the remote to know if it's a four or five digit code requirement. But here's a site that might help. http://www.remotecodelist.com/remotes/
Scroll down to Hughs and that link should take you to the DTV site where they have a wealth of info regarding codes. Find your model number remote control and you should have a list of possible codes to try.
If all this doesn't work let me know and I'll research sme more.
is it an old tube type tv? my step dad still has one...only reason is cause he has the sound directed into a home theatre system from the direct tv box... the volume on the tv sucked even from day one but now It doesnt work at all.. ever...
If its an old tv, it may just be dieing, if its not that old, then I dont know. sorry
Dont know what model or how old your TV is but try this, While the enter PIN code screen is displayed, press the RECALL key four times within five seconds and the PIN code will be cleared so you can enter a new PIN code but it has to be with the original remote. Worked with my old Toshiba TV about 2 years ago. If it doesnt work I only waisted about 10 secounds of your time and I'm sorry.
The only model of remote that i heard that it has pre-program Olevia code in it.. is the RC-64 or RC-64RB usually these remotes are coming with the new HD boxes..
Direct TV Remote Codes 506 or 127 Direct TV (Remote Model RC-64RB) Remote Codes 11144, 11240, 11331, or 11610
Also available is the Olevia Universal Learning Remote RC-LRN that offers component programming of most video hardware including your Cable or Satellite Receivers, VCR's, Tivo's, DVD, Blue-Ray™ or even HD- DVD players. The learning remote is available… please call at 866-965-3842
unfortunately you cannot run a ps2 or any other device through the receivers. take a look at the tv may have inputs on the front or side of tv where you can use red/white/yellow cabling OR take a look at what type of cabling your tv does support and go from there. hope this helps.

Hi, my TV is starting to develope a problem & I have traced it to the e box (mine is FTR9964). I had the screen repaired in January (would'nt start from cold) cost was £156 inc vat. Anyway this time its the ebox & since we are going digital next year I thought I would try & do away with the e box by using one of these http://www.js-technology.com/product_info.php?cPath=22&products_id=33&osCsid=c05e56ff6e909a4b42d53af48a5940ae I managed to buy one on eBay for £30, so fingers crossed it should be problem solved.
