Switching from an RC65 to RC71

We switched from an RC65 remote to an RC71 to use with our Emerson television. The code that worked with the RC65 was 10060. No matter what I do, I can't program the RC71. Should the Emerson code work for both remotes? If so, can you tell me the steps for programming the RC71? Thank you.

In many ways the RC71 is less capable than the RC65, so I'm wondering why you switched.   Programming of the RC71 depends heavily on the DVR that you have?  Do you have an HR34 or HR44 Genie DVR?

to add to litzdog comment, the RC71 does not have the same codes as the RC65 or RC66.  The RC71 has way less codes on board because as he mentioned the RC71 puts the load on the DVR itself to do the programing
