Re: Code #'s for remote control recognition
Turn on the TV, and the Direct TV receiver, then press MENU on the remote, go to the bottom and select PARENTAL, FAVs and SET UP(press the select button in the remote), then go to SET UP and press select, then go to REMOTE, there you will see all the steps to program your Direct TV remote not only for the tv, the dvd player and the home theater as well. Also you will see ALL the codes for a lot of brands of devices including your TV brand. NOTE: don't go to option on the remote that says "RF/IR", you don't need to adjust that.

Check this, for how long the TV is on? 30 min., 45min, 1 hour? because maybe you have accidentally programmed the SLEEP control. If so, go to the set up options or menu with the remote control and check the status of the sleep power off time. Or maybe the TV has the otion to power off automaticly set the same way that is the alarm turn on.
As far as I know, no regular universal remote will work with the mintek TV/DVD's.
I have heard that the "Kameleon" remote, from radioshack works with them.
I had the same problem, so I ordered a replacement original remote from ebay for $20. It was the RC-600 for mine (DTV-265 26" LCD/DVD)
I am having a problem with my DTV-373 also. I called QVC customer service and they gave me a number to call for service. My unit is under warranty also. When you call this number one of the promts is "Press 1 if you bought your product from QVC". The person will take your name and address. They will send a repair kit to your house. When you receive the kit you call the number back and they will send a service person to your house to fix it. Mintek has gone bankrupt but this service was hired to fix problems and cover warranty. QVC has done a great job with this. I am sorry I do not have the number in front of me at the moment.
