    We just purchased a new LG 79UB9800 and are having trouble finding a remote code for use with our HR44-500. We use the rc64 remote. Has anyone found a useable code for this TV? Thanks for any help!

    You may need to update your remote (i.e. RC66) if the old LG codes don't accomplish what you need done.

    It may be necessary to go with the RC72 (or some subsquent model) if the TV becomes RVU 4K Ready at some point.

    Thanks, but I couldn't get 11423 to work either. I misstated my remote model. It is RC65RBX. I thought it was the latest model. I do have a RC71 but don't like it. I'll see if it will work.

    The RC66, the latest old-school remote, has different code numbers entirely for LG.

    Have you been here and checked out all the codes for the different remotes ?
    Choose the Remote model number, then type in the brand, click on search, then write that code down, then click on Find more codes.

    Thanks for all the info. Especially that link for Directv remotes. Also I ordered an RC66 from Amazon to try.

    Got it working, after a fashion. It turns out the LG codes are working but only for POWER. Of course I was using VOLUME to test the codes. That is ok though. I installed my sound bar and the the RC65 controls that just fine. I appreciate all of the help!

    A lot of the time you can find codes that work for one but not the other. Some codes will work for power but not volume, some for volume but not power, etc. There is usually one code that will work for both though.

    That said I still don't understand why people keep using the DirecTV remotes. Pick up a Harmony 650 or similar and save yourself a lot of headaches. Since I got my first Harmony 880 years ago I have fallen in love with them and use them in every room in my house. I have also switched most of my parents and siblings rooms over to them as well. You can get the 650 on sale for around $50 if you watch for it, and it is worth every penny.

    Beerstalker, I understand. Years ago I paid big $$$ for a Pronto TSU 9600 only to have support for it discontinued. Once properly programmed they are wonderful. But newer OS's do not support the editor. I guess I will have to take another look at the Harmony remotes.
