    We just got an LG 37LC7D HD TV and there are no LG codes listed in the Dish Network Manual for my 622 receiver. I have searched these forums and also did a Google Search to no avail.

    Anyone found one that works?

    Thanks in advance!

    Use Zenith. It's the same thing.

    Panasonic may work as well.

    Mary:

    How much did you pay for your TV? That's the size I need because I have a small house. I'm figuring I'll buy one in December-Feb. Since I'm disabled and on Social Security I'm saving my pennies. It might have to wait until next year if anything in the house breaks down.

    Paul,
    It's pretty much $1399 everywhere right now. I got mine at Sears though because they have 18 month no interest financing right now. I have never had an LG and am amazed at the PQ. It looks just as good as our Samsung, truly.

    Sears is where I first got my Dish equipment from in 1999. I meant to get Directv, but I wasn't paying attention and ended up with Charlie and CO. Glad I did.

    Say I'm looking a thin flat remote that lights up and won't flip around on a music stand. Radio Shack has them. I have problems with the Dish remote flipping over. As you can see I type with a stick on my head. Would those work with Dish? My attendant's brother in law would have to program it.

    I wrote to Dish about this and they said only Dish remotes will only work with their receivers. Is this true?

    I just bought an LG tv 1080p 42" lcd,with 3 hdmi inputs and a pc input. I had a choice between toshiba with similar features and an LG, and after having had two toshiba PCS with class action suits against them and myriad problems on the last laptop and seeing all the positive reviews for the LG tv, decided on the LG. I hope I don't regret it, but I remember I purchased something "goldstar" before though I can't remember what, and it was trouble free. And the picture on the LG is pretty impressive. Sound is not bad either, better than my existing home theater system. OTOH, i did get a five year warranty. :)

    Paul,

    Circuit City has it on for $140 less right now. On Sunday I took my receipt to Sears and they credited me that plus 10% since they have guaranteed price match for 30 days. My final price is now $1245.99 plus tax.

    dish will only guarantee their remotes, most universals have at least some compatibilty but usually not full functionality... which certainly can cause problems down the line. You're safe with most learning remotes
