Directv Tivo recorder no remote programming code for Visio 37''
I have a RCA Directv DVR R10 with a Tivo2 universal remote. When I go to the TV manufacturer listings, they don't have remote programming codes for a Visio TV. How can I program this remote to control my Visio 37" tv functions? Thanks

You can buy a used DirecTV with Tivo. You probably had a Hughes SD-DVR40 or SD-DVR80 before. The used model needs to be transferable to your account (which means it can't be leased, it has to have no outstanding charges on the previous account, etc). And you have to buy a new DirecTV card.
If you are in the San Francisco Bay Area or in San Jose, write to [email protected] and they should be able to help you out.
Press and hold the MUTE and SELECT keys until the green light under the DIRECTV position flashes twice, then release both keys.
Using the number keys, enter the 5-digit code. If performed correctly, the green light under the DIRECTV position flashes twice.
Aim the remote at your DIRECTV Receiver and press the PWR key once. The DIRECTV Receiver should turn off; if it does not, repeat steps 3 and 4, trying each code for your brand until you find the correct code.
Your TIVO DirectTV RC65 remote control is now setup to control your DVR. A digital copy of your remote's owners manual is available here. Instructions for the RC65 Code Search function to find compatible remote codes are here.
The problem is the DVR is only programmed using a set amount of codes. They don't update them. If your DVR is a few years older than your TV set, you're out of luck. .
You could contact DirectTV customer service and see if they have a solution in technical support for that tv. It's possible another set of manufacture codes will work with it and tech support has it noted.
No, unfortunately there is not. That tivo only has 1 tuner, so you can only record or watch 1 live program. You can however watch a pre-recorded program while recording a live program. If you have directv, you can step up and get their hr20 dvr. It's not a tivo by any means, but it has 2 tuners so you can record 2 things at once and watch a pre-recorded show. It takes a little while to get used to the interface, but once you get the hang of it, it's pretty straightforward.
You can also get an older DVR w/ tivo (hr10) however, it will not get ANY of the new MPEG4 High Def channels that are out there.
If you have an hdtv, then you really should grab an hr20, give directv customer retention a call and ask what they can do for you. You'll need a new slimline dish and they'll come out install it and everything you need for watching off the new satellites and enjoying the new mpeg4 hd channels (the old hd channels are in mpeg2).
Try this: On the Tivo remote press and hold the TV Power button and the Directv/TIVO button at the same time. Hold both buttons down for about 4 seconds or until remote light stays red. Then press the channel up button until the tv turns off. You may press the button over 100 times. You need to go slow. When the TV turns off press the enter button (or select button).
