Remote codes-Best Buy Insignia NS-SB212 Soundbar (Panasonic Veira)

I have a problem finding a good remote code to program a new NS-SB212 Insignia Soundbar.  I have tried the 5-6 codes listed in the setup and now the 12049 code suggested  in another post.  My remote is a RC-1984.... about 1 year old.  I have also tried both audio 1 and audio 2...   Any ideas?

Remote 1 :    RC1984741-02B

The soundbar has its own IR remote, so there must be a code????

If your remote is a Directv model, look on the front face, upper left corner and post back the model number.  It will be something like RC65.

I also have tried every code you can find for this same sounbar and none of them work for RC65 remote.  I will be following this thread.  Hopefully someone can figure it out.  I tried the manual method for as long as I could stand it.  I think that is a joke.  Just how many combinations can there be?

you need an RC65X or RC66X and a compatible receiver in order to load the codes from the receiver as the remotes do not have any sound bar codes "on board"

I just don't understand why Best Buy and DirecTV can't compare notes and share their codes...  This is not national security.  I am going to be very cautious about buying any additional Insignia branded electronics.  I have not had these issues with the other major electronic brands.

Prior to the introduction of the remotes that Peds mentions, codes had to be built in to remotes at time of manufacture.  If one of your devices were made after the remote, there is no way for the remote to control your device.  The new system allows a software update to the receiver to contain remote code updates which then can be loaded on the remote.

can you explain what you mean "The new system allows a software...".   What "new system" are you referring to?

Also are you saying if I got a newly manufactured RC65 remote it would have the remote codes in it for this soundbar?  Kind of sounds like a crap shoot.  How would you know that the remote was programmed with the new remote codes in it?

"the new system" is an HR24, H25 or HR34 paired with an RC65X or RC66X remotes.  these remotes gets the codes from the receiver instead of the codes being "hard coded" into the remotes. DirecTV can add more at any time via software updates to the receivers

A further explanation.  The new remotes are capable of adding to their remote code data if connected to one of the newer HD receivers or HD DVRs.  Regular software updates to the receivers and DVR's also update the remote code data base, thus that system is better able to keep up with codes on recently released TV's and sound systems.  When you activate a device in one of the new remotes, the necessary code (if available) can be downloaded from the receiver/DVR to the remote.

so I'm planning on replacing this standard def receiver with a HD Receiver, looks like a H25 model.  So I guess that will fix the problem.  I hope.  Thanks everyone.

maybe.  is not guarantee that you will get an H25 and is also not guaranteed that if you do, it will have the code.  but you any (only) chance to get a code,  is to get the "new system"

Edit Add:  I corrected the erroneous info in the prior post.

As a test I connected the Insignia soundbar to my other Directv receiver (model HR24) that has remote # RC65RX and it works.  I can control the soundbar with my Directv remote.  I don't know if I can assume I would get the same results with a H25 box or its equivalent.  I would hope so.

I used a Directv remote but it is a RC65RX remote not the RC 65 for the stand def box.  don't know the diff.

I did everything from a pick list.  no actual codes are input. Selected Insignia from the list.  This model # wasn't in the list of models to pick from but I chose the option of not in the list.  It automatically searched for a code to work.  Took about 3 times of hitting next code and then it worked.  I wish I knew what code it selected although not sure that would work on a D12 box and a RC65 remote.  The HR24 box works differently than the standard def box model D12.  from the discussion above I don't know if the secret to this working is in the different remote or the different box or both.

I am very confused...  DirecTV installed a new box about 10 months ago.  They said the H25-100 box was HD and at that time included a RC65 remote, they left the old RC32 remote behind.  DirecTV now wants $15 plus shipping for the RC65RX, but can't guarantee it will work with the Insignia NS-SB212 sound bar....   It might just be easier to go buy a Harmony 650 Universal remote and be done.  Thanks for your help.

I just did another test.

I used my HR24 box to program my RC65RX remote to control the Insignia soundbar and then moved the soundbar back to my standard def box and it works.  So that is encouraging.  I think in my case if I get another RC65RX remote then I should be good to go.  I tried using my RC65 remote on my HR24 box and you can't program the soundbar.  So that to me says its the "remote" that is the problem.

Correct, as I mentioned earlier.  the code is provided from the box to the remote.  you need both to get the code, a compatible receiver such as the HR24, H25 or HR34 and and a compatible remote such as the RC65X or RC66X.  The "X" in the remote model number mens that is a two way remote, like a "learning remote, for lack of a better word.   but it only "learns" from the DirecTV compatible HD receiver or HDDVR

Thanks everyone.....  I lost patience and moved on.  I was not able to get the existing remotes to work and it was easier to go the Best Buy and purchase a Logitech/Harmony 650 remote...  It works fine.
