Remote won't program TV

Have a Direct TV remote, Toshiba TV and Direct TV box.  The remote works with the box, but I can't program the TV.  I select the TV mode, switch the mode to TV (green light flashes)  and hit mute & Select buttons.  It then tells me those buttons aren't programmed.  Of course not - that's what I trying and failing to do!

turn off the receiver, or go into another room, so you won't listen to messages at the bottom of the screen, and just keep programming the remote like so:

1. tv

2. press and hold MUTE & SELECT, wait for two blinks, release

3. enter 1 2 0 0 6 or 1 0 7 6 5

Mine did this and I went into Program Remote. Where I was to put in model of TV (mine is Sanyo 50842) I selected Sanyo and instead of inputting my model number I scrolled all the way to the end of the 650 or so models and selected "model not listed" even though it was. That did the trick! Good luck.
