Our tv won't turn off or on with the remote anymore. It is the remote that came with the direct tv. The remote works with the direct tv box if we go through the dvd player. Also we got another tv and the remote doesn't work either. You can turn both tv's on manually and everything if fine. We replaced the batteries on the remotes. Is there a fuse or something on the t.v that controls the remote?

Re: remote won't turn on tv
No, there is no fuse on the television that control the remote, there is a component that they call IF means infrared.its a circuit that recieved the signal from the remote,amplify them and convert them to signals then decoded by the system control.if the remote is not working with the two tv then the IF circuit needs to be repaired.since you say that the remote works with the direct tv box.then i could assume that the remote is working.it could also be that the remote is not compatible with the tvs.try getting the the right remotes for the tv and see what happens.if it does not turn the tv on then we safely say it is the IF circuit.then you will have to take your set to a repair tech for repairs.good luck.

I understand the problem you have is the remote not controlling the TV?
If so, set the remote to TV and hit a button. it should ask you Manufacture and give a list of codes. If this does not work, go to Directv.com and look up how ton program remote. Directions should be there. Or just google the question.
I don't have DTV anymore, so I don't remember the exact code I used for my SK-32H240S, However, I do remember that I found one that worked at this site. Scroll down to locate your remote series # - it most likely will be printed on the upper left corner of the front of the remote - as an example, mine says RC64. Click on the corresponding listing, then follow the directions on the site. I tried only a few codes before finding one that worked correctly. Good luck.
