    I am having a problem programming my rc71 remote to control my Olevia model 232 flat screen. I have tried several codes, but they only allow me to control the tv volume, but will not turn the tv on or off. I have discussed this problem with Direct Customer Service but they but they were unable to find a code that would work. My old rc64 remote works just fine. Any one else able to solve this problem?

    There are quite a few issues that I've found with the RC71 controlling TV's. In my case, it won't work very well with my Samsung HCM5525W. In my case, I can't find a code that will work at all with it. I am using my RC65RB remote instead.

    BTW, welcome to DBSTalk!

    I set mine (Sammy plasma) up without codes. Er, IIRC!
