    I tried all of these codes and none worked. Neither did the brand codes. The remote that came with the unit works fine and the other codes that I programmed into the remote have worked OK.

    It was a thoughtful comment and offered a couple of ideas to try. Though I don't yet have a solution to the problem, it has been helpful.

There is no code search feature in this remote so your only option is to try the codes for standard and HD Toshiba DVD players. I've listed the codes in order of most likely to work:

20503 21769 21154 21515 21503 21510 21854 20695 21045 21588

There are also 2 Toshiba brand codes which may control the basic functions:

21945 21256
I've included a couple of codes for Toshiba which are not listed in the manual. Please try all of the above codes then let me know if you need further assistance, by clicking on "Add a Comment" below your question. Not all universal remotes will work with all devices, but as it's a major brand player, one of the codes above may work or control some of the functions. Hope this helps. Regards, BElectric

    Thanks for getting back to me. The reality is the Bose remote probably isn't going to work with your Blu-ray player. If none of the Toshiba codes work, the only other option is to try the codes for the other brands of Blu-ray. It's possible the hardware in your player was made by one of the other manufacturers in the Blu-ray code list and the code for one of those will work with your player. It's highly unlikely though.

    There is an unrealistic expectation that every universal remote will work with every device and that each device has a code for every remote. This isn't how it works. Universal remotes are pre-programmed with codes that relate to a set of infra-red (IR) flash patterns. If the remote was programmed with a code that relates to the IR flash patterns for your Blu-ray player, it will work. If it wasn't programmed for those flash patterns, it wont work. It really is that simple.

    There are far too many devices for any universal remote to have codes for every single one. If the remote is older than the Blu-ray player, it's less likely to work. The likelihood of it working diminishes as the age gap between the remote and the device increases.

    I suggest trying the codes for the other brands of Blu-ray players. If they don't work, this remote isn't going to work with your player. The only options are to use the remote supplied with the Blu-ray player (is that really so bad?) or buy a new universal remote. However, you could buy a brand-new universal remote and still find that it doesn't have codes for all of your devices. The only way to guarantee a universal remote will work with all devices is to buy a "learning" remote. These still have codes for many devices but if they don't, they can be programmed from the original remote.

    There isn't much else I can tell you. Unfortunately, simply wanting it to work isn't going to make it work ;)

    If I can be of further assistance, please let me know.

You can use the code search feature of your GE universal remote to find something that can manage some or all functions of your Toshiba Blu-ray player. If a search through all codes stored in the remote fails, you may have to try a different universal remote. All universal remotes do not store all possible codes.

Bose cinemate remote turns dvd on and off but can't navigate menu

Some remotes will simply not operate some functions, even with the correct codes. You could search for other codes elsewhere, but the chances are that even if you get some of them working, something will still not work. Some universal remotes are better than others. But you might have to pay a lot for one. If you can find the original remote second-hand then I would get it.

Bose cine mate speakers

No it won't be like surround sound, but you'll have the next best thing: a nice, powerful, natural Hi-Fi sound. I have a 46 inch 1080p Sony connected to a Sony Blu-Ray and Bose Cinemate Speakers. No complicated rear speakers wiring, no awkward center speaker to hide. The only drawback is that Bose doesn't have (yet) a code to operate the Blu-ray player with the Cinemate remote control.

Hope this helps to make your decision.
