    My daughter just bought a Proscan tv for her room that has a client in it. I could not find the model # in the directv system so tried to program it without the model # and could not do it. I hav my other 2 tv's programmed (phillips, samsung) what up? Some trick I'm missing?

    It's possible the directv remote doesn't have a code for it. In the distant past Proscan used to share codes with RCA.... you may try those.

    Is the remote a model number with an "X" after the numbers ?
    If it is an RC65X or RC65RX it will have the newest codes. It is also possible for the receiver to have a newer code and put it in those remotes. None of the older remotes are capable of that action.

    When testing codes, don't use the TV ON & OFF keys to determine if the code works or not, test ALL keys. Many top brands and models of tv don't have working commands on these two keys.

    You could do a codesearch by volume, with tv on, volume up but muted:

    1. tv
    2. press and hold MUTE & SELECT for two blinks
    3. enter 9 9 1, wait two blinks
    4. enter 1
    5. press and release VOL UP
    6. point the remote at the tv and keep pressing and releasing the CH UP key, if and when the volume changes
    7. press select to lock in code

    Remember there are over 300 brands of tv, many having more then one code, so give it time.
