    I have a C31 connect to a Sansui SDTV, I want to use a RC 71 remote, but went through all the codes and it did
    not program to the TV, is there a way to scan for a code like on other remotes?

    only code "built in" is 10171. for other codes you need a capable receiver to transfer codes to the remote, such as the HR44 and C41

    If you have an hr44 or c41 in another room then you'll be able to program the remote from the other room for a sansui tv. Just remember to set it back to IR afterwards.

    I programed my LG tv without hr 44 since I dont have one. All I did was mute select and entered code I got from my receiver.
