I am trying to find out if anyone can help me out with trying to program my dish dvr remote (#2) to my durabrand tv, it is a product of Walmart, and I have found out that Funai is the one now making them. But nobody can help me to find the code to program the remote to it. I thank you for your time. :confused:

Have you tried the code scan?

Walmart is known to get the manufacturer to change to more "popular" codes. The last Walmart TV I had to deal with actually had been revised to use Sony codes.

Found on a wiki
"Durabrand is a chain of different manufacturers. Durabrand is chained with Lenoxx Sound, Alco, Funai (which would also include Emerson, Sylvania, and Symphonic), Orion, Maxell, Resonance, Initial Technology, and many other different companies"

You can rule out Lennox http://lenoxx.com/DU...abrand_page.htm

and I found this in another forum "I am not sure who makes it but I do have a phone # that you can call and TRY to get help but good luck in that. All I got was alot of nothing.
1-800-252-6123 That is the # for customer service, make sure that you have the s/n # and the model # or you wont get anywhere."

don't know if that number is still good

But I saved the best for last, according to wiki "Televisions were sourced from Orion, now currently sourced from Funai Electric." Orion made the emerson brand too, so try those codes. Good luck

Then I thought, wouldn't it be much worse if life were fair, and all the terrible things that happen to us come because we actually deserve them? So, now I take great comfort in the general hostility and unfairness of the universe." ~ Marcus Cole

Hold your TV button down at the top of the remote until all four buttons across the top illuminate. Press the orange power button near the top of the remote. If you have a newer remote with two orange buttons, press the one without the TV letters. Press the 'channel up' button slowly until the TV turns off. Then press the pound key to set that code in the remote. You may have to search through a hundred or so codes until you find the right on. Its common for the codes in the manual to not work for a certain brand, but later find a code that works by doing the code search. :icon_cool
