We got a "cheapo" Curtis (not Curtis Mathes) TV for our kitchen and I can't find the remote code for the D* remote. I tried codes for some likely suspects but had no luck. Any suggestions?

Step one is to consult the operator's manual that came with the TV. Curtis International manuals appear relatively useless in this respect so that's probably a dead end.

If the manual doesn't have any advice, try the Sony remote codes. If someone is going to ape another manufacturer, it is often going to look like a Sony. Another code set that seems pretty popular is the Philips codes.

Looking more closely at the Curtis International website, I see that they also distribute RCA and Sylvania, so you might try those.

If that doesn't work, dial 1-800-968-9853 during Toronto business hours.

Thanks for the suggestion. Unfortunately, none of those codes worked. Guess I need to call.

I take it you mean your trying to program your directv remote to operate the TV, and not the tv remote to operate the satellite receiver as one of the above people have referanced you to by trying to look in the tv manual.

You can do a code search to see if it will operate a non listed tv manufacturer.

Here's how to scan for TV codes on your DIRECTV remote

1.Make sure your TV is turned on.

2.Slide the mode switch at top of remote to "TV".

3.Press and hold the MUTE button. This is located above the number 1 button.

4.While still holding down MUTE, press and hold the SELECT button until green light at the top of the remote flashes twice.

5.Then enter 991, the green light on remote should flash twice.

6.Point remote at TV and press CHANNEL UP button. Tap the CHANNEL UP button repeatedly until the TV powers off.

7.When the TV powers off, press and release the SELECT button.

*Note: If the green light flashes three times before TV responds, then all codes have been cycled through. Our remote controls are guaranteed to program to your DIRECTV receiver, however your TV may not be compatible with our remote control.

Yo Harsh....stay out the Direct TV forums. You confuse people because you have idea what you are talking about.

The OP wants to program his Direct TV report to operate his TV. Why would he look at his TV manual for a Direct TV code? LMAO

I tried the code search as suggested by Yoda. To be honest, I never made it to the end, but I was button pushing for the better part of 30 min. I'm thinking that the code might not be a "TV" code.

Which model remote do you have? The latest RC65 has a lot more codes than prior models, but I don't show one listed for Curtis. Doesn't mean there isn't one though. The model number is in the upper left of the remote. I have a feeling you may be SOL on using the D* remote to control the tv.

In addition to the two that are listed, the RC65 adds 11748 & 11749. Hard to say if either of those will control the tv or not.

Are you sure green wasn't "code" for the cheapest set she could find?

Because TV manuals often indicate the codes used on popular universal remotes.

Funny Guy.

Another thought... Is it a multi-function TV? Does it have a DVD player/VCR built into it?
Thats usually a real game changer when it comes to programming the remote.

Yes, it's an under-cabinet model with a radio (no DVD).

It might respond using 30797 in either AV1 or AV2 positions. Thats the Curtis code for audio receivers.

If it does work, you'll need to use the slider on top quite a bit. AV1/2 for power & volume (if your lucky) and of course D* position for channel changes.

Good luck.
