If you have a RC7X remote, try pressing the Mute and Enter (under the number 9) at the same time and it should sync with the receiver.

 

Then go to Menu > Settings & Help > Settings > Remote Control > Program Remote and then look for the TV option to set it up to control the TV.

Thanks. It could not find my new TCL 32S237, but it did try.

@jjpcutaie, what model DVR/Receiver do you have?   With the RC6x remotes, typically you would use the DVR/Receiver's Remote Setup menu and follow the steps to find the correct code for your brand/model HDTV.
