Re: Menu Button not working, can't record
There must be some keys active after you press Menu. Like you said, it must be waiting for you. After you hit Menu have you tried all the numbers and arrows?
If you can't get any of them to respond (except hitting Menu again to exit the menu) perhaps you need to try a different manufacturer code for your device. For example, if you have Brand ABC Model XYZ, perhaps the valid remote codes are 012, 013, and 014. Even if you have found that 012 works for most things but you can't record, you should try programming the remote to codes 013 and 014 and see what happens. There could be slight differences between the codes that allow most features to work, but not ALL features, just as you are experienceing. Good luck.

When the remote is able to work the television but not the receiverthere are a few things to check. It is important that the remote is in SATmode, check this by pressing the SAT button at the top of the remote, it shouldlight up. If after doing that the remote still does not work for changingchannels, you will need to address the remote to the receiver. This can be doneby pressing the 'System Info' button on the receiver (or access system infothrough main menu). Once you are on the System Info screen, press the 'SAT'button for 6 seconds and then press the 'Record' button. The remote then shouldbe working with the receiver.
Here are the codes...1447,0047,0051,0178,1347,1917,1147,1907,1922,1919,.....To program.. Turn the TV on, make sure you have fresh batteries in the remote,and installed correct, Press and hold down the P button until the LED blinks twice, enter one of the four digit codes, the LED will blink twice,it not, repeat the steps using a different code..hope this was helpful...
Whenever a remote is not working to change channels thefirst thing to check is the batteries. Even if some buttons on the remote areworking, it is possible that low batteries are the cause of not being able tochange the channel. Once the remote has fresh batteries, you'll want to makesure that the remote is in the correct mode. This can be done simply bypressing the 'SAT' button and it should light up. The next thing to do isre-address the remote to the receiver. First, press the 'system info' button onthe receiver (or access system info through the menu). Once the system infoscreen is showing on the TV press the 'SAT' button once and release then pressthe record button. The remote should then be working with the receiver.
Not a complete solution, but, around the last page (pg. 14) of your converter box manual there are codes listed for universal remotes. I happen to have a Philips remote that is listed. My code to control my dtv box is 0354. It appears that they have all codes listed for all Radioshack model universal remotes. I would suggest getting a Radioshack remote for Your "Digital Stream" (Radioshack) dtv box...
programming a device: make sure batteries are installed correctly. Turn device on(for ex., your TV). Press TV button next to Power button on your 15-2147...Press and hold the little P button until the red LED lite blinks twice...enter the first four-digit code for your device(in your case,JVC TV...first set of #s is '0463' ) note: the LED will blink once as each number is entered. If the number is correct the LED will blink 2x. Note if the LED doesn't blink twice after entering the 4 digit code, begin again with the next set of numbers. For JVC the codes are 0463 and 0053. Once your remote blinks twice after entering in your TV code, press the power button. This should turn off your TV. Just use like any other remote. Hope this helps you.
IF not then you should be able to program in
Emerson 0591, 0675 for the DVD player
Emerson 0037, 0184, 0000, 0121, 0043, 0209 for the VCR
THe problem arises however, that the vcr and the dvd function buttons are the same, so you can only program one or the other. You need A different remote. I would suggest the 15-2142 made by radioshack. It is the Family 4 in 1 remote, and it has all the functions you need. THis remote is also backlit on some buttons to make it a little easier to see in the dark.
