Directv tech support told me to turn off the V-chip on my Sony Bravia TV to program the tv to my Directv remote. How?

    Reading the answers from Silverdragon and 1 Alexh was like reading factory manuals. Thanks! Despite Directv's V-chip instructions (and Silverdragon's suggestions on how to do it) the V-chip being turned off didn't help to program the remote. I talked with the local Radio Shack manager and he told me that Directv and Dish remotes won't work with the newer flat screen TV's. He said he has to use 2 remotes with his flat screen. Is he right??

    Thanks,

While he did specify DirectTV, Silverdragon just gave a most impressive write-up on this process. The fact is, there should be no difference between doing this with Cable or DirectTV.

The process should be exactly the same.

Follow the above from Silverdragon on disabling the V-Chip temporarily, doing what needs to be done with the settings, then re-enabling the V-Chip.

Perhaps the only thing that may be missing is that you should use the remote control for the Sony Bravia TV to do this process, rather than any other remote control. That way, you are working directly with the TV itself, and have complete control.

Otherwise, you will be working through an "emulator" or a remote that translates from the universal control to the TV control.

When doing something of this detail, use the specific TV control to get it done.

Excellent work, Silverdragon!

Molysyd, you are in great hands!

SETTING V-CHIP
This TV is fitted with a V-CHIP controller which provides you with channel viewing access controls
and restrictions. This function is to prevent your children from watching violence or sexual scenes
that you may choose to exclude.
Press the MENU button and press the SET + or – button to select the V-CHIP SET option,
then press the ENTER button.
Enter your password (4 digits) using the Direct channel selection buttons (0-9).
In the event of entering incorrect password press the RESET button. Then press the
ENTER button.
Enter the same password for confirmation, then press the ENTER button.
Press the SET + or – button to select the V-CHIP option.
Press the ENTER button to select the ON.
Press the SET + or – button to select the TV RATING or MOVIE RATING option. Press
the ENTER button.
Press the SET + or – button to select the desired rating for the applicable video or TV
channel. Press the ENTER button.

And to change or put in a new password:
NOTES:
• If you want to change password, follow steps 1 and 2 and select "CHANGE PASSWORD"
option then enter your new password.
• The V-Chip function is activated only on programs and tapes that have the rating signal.
• Once you block a program using the V-Chip function, the blocked program cannot be watched
based on the content of the show. When the program starts, the "INPUT PASSWORD" will
appear on the screen. When you want to release the V-Chip temporarily, enter the password.
If you change the channel or turn off the TV while the V-Chip function was temporarily released,
the original setting will be resumed. If you return to the channel you were watching you must
re-enter your password to temporarily release your V-Chip function again.
• When you watch the TV from the cable box or the VCR with the RF Modulator, then you release
the V-Chip temporarily, the V-Chip setting will not be resumed until you turn off the TV. The
TV channel is not used in this case.
• When changing the channel with the cable box or the VCR, approximately 10 seconds will
pass until the program appears.

Problems programming DVR remote to TV


If your DirecTV remote is in SAT mode and the power button isn't turning the receiver on and off, you will likely need a new remote. There isn't suppose to be any trick to getting the power button on a remote to work. However, only DirecTV tech support can confirm this. I would give them a call right away.
