RC73 Programming Coby television

Hi,

I'm using my rc73 from my Genie with IR and I want to program my Coby 40 inch tv (not sure model number).  I've used 12315, 12314, 11531 and 11738 and I can't get it to work.  On a related note, I can't get my old RC64R remote (also on IR) to control the tv.  Are there other codes to try or what else might I be doing incorrectly?

Thanks!

The satellite receiver is an HR24-100, I'm not sure what the tv model is.

The HR24 is not a Genie

Re: RC73 Programming Coby television

Yes, the remote is a RC73 remote, which I'm using in IR mode, on a HR24.  It works as a directv remote, I want to program the remote so that it will also control my television.  The installer told me that the RC73 remote will work with any previous model of dvr in IR mode, but I can't get it to program my Coby.

Re: RC73 Programming Coby television

Thanks, what's interesting, or telling as the case may be, is that when I click on the RC73 remote, the box that comes up has a place for TV and satellite, does that mean you can't run the sound through a receiver since it's not an option to program?

Re: RC73 Programming Coby television

The RC7X remotes are made to be programed in RF from an HR44 Genie or C41/51 mini and are intended to be used with them

The following code is the most popular for your brand.

13478  

Setup Instructions
  1. Turn on the TV manually or using the original TV remote.
  2. Press and hold the "Mute" button and the "Select" button at the same time until the green light on the top of the remote blinks twice.
  3. Using the number key, enter the first digit of the code above. Wait for the green light on top of the remote to flash twice
  4. Enter the remaining 4 digits of the code above.
  5. Aim the remote at your TV and press the "OFF" key once. Your TV should turn off. If it does not turn off, repeat the steps above, trying each code until you find the correct code.
  6. Tell us if it worked!

Re: RC73 Programming Coby television

The RC7x remotes really aren't designed to work with the HR2x HD DVRs.

Re: RC73 Programming Coby television

You can run sound through an AVR, you just wont be able to program the RC73 manually tho to an AVR, you need a compatible receiver.  You are better of using an RC6x series remote.

Re: RC73 Programming Coby television

That seems to be true.  However, I should have opened another thread.  While I can't get the RC73 to code to my Coby on the HR24.  Another RC73 also won't code to my Yamaha RX-V667 receiver on the HR44 (brand new Genie installed today).  I can get along with my RC64R, but I would like my RC73 to work on the Genie it's designed for.

Re: RC73 Programming Coby television

Thanks, so even with an RC73 AND a Genie, I can't get the RC73 to control the volume on the AVR?  I'm new, it seems I can't hit correct on this, sorry about that.

Re: RC73 Programming Coby television

I realize this is basically a second problem, sorry about that.

Re: RC73 Programming Coby television

You can use the HR44 to code for the Colby TV, there are more codes on board the software that there are manually.  Try to code the RC73 for the colby then after that you can tackle the AVR on the HR44.
