    does anyone know the remote codes for TCL 43s525 TV. im using the RC65X remote and tried the code i found online but does not work and the TV brand is not listed in the settings on this DVR as too old probably. Its a HR24. Just looking to control the volume of tv with it. It already changes channels but wont do volume.

    Tried a bunch nine work. Called directv. They are sending a different remote. They think DVR maybe old as well and not compatible with it which made no sense. It’s a remote issue

    You know this for a fact? On the 'newer' TCL Roku TV like the original poster has?

    Last year I had a customer buy a bunch of those TCL Roku TVs from Best Buy. And the DirecTV remote (RC65x from the H25 receivers) would NOT control them. I did not have a RC66X remote to try.
    The customer also had an HR54 with 3 client boxes (using the RC7X remotes), those DirecTV remotes 'would' control the TCL Roku TVs.
    Going round & round with DirecTV & TCL, there was nothing that could be done. TCL said DirecTV would have to add the new Roku TV codes into the database for those remotes. And DirecTV was unlikely to do that for the old style remotes. We ended up putting the H25 boxes (with the RC65X remotes) on the older TVs.

    I know that a RCX66 is "newer" than a RC65 -- I bought a 2019 LG and had a RC65 that would not find a code -- I had a rc66X and was able to get that to work --on the first try -- suggest you try one they can be had on ebay for a song

    That code does NOT work.
    TCL Roku TVs had a software update in late 2018 that changed the remote code set. The old DirecTV remotes have not been able to work them since.

    Let us know if the new remote works. Will be interesting to see if DirecTV does indeed update the old style remote to work this.

    I just purchased a TCL Roku TV 43S425, used with a 10 year old HR-24. I don't know the DTV remote number (it's worn off the remote face) but the remote does not contain codes to control this tv, after going through the whole search effort and trying the codes listed so far in this thread. What more recent remote number(s), if any, do I need to purchase? Would prefer if possible the old white large rectangle style so my wife would not have to learn the newer peanut style.

    Try this: DIRECTV 4-Device Universal Remote Control IR and Legacy RF (RCIRRF) from Solid Signal Your old remote won't work with newer TVs and AVRs, and I'm not sure a new one will work any better but it's worth a try.

    The 66 has lots more codes than your old remote. If the model number has an "x" on the right side of it, it has 2 way communication with the 24 and that helps to program it.

    That reminds me, I have to find the code for a Sony AVR, STR DH800. That AVR has to be over ten years old and I know there was a code that worked but the new remotes I have won't take a code and they can't find a code. That's another question, how do I get one of the newer remotes to accept a code? If I can find one that works. Edmund...perhaps he's lurking?

    I'll try that, but I need to know how to input codes. The remotes I have all search for codes. I could swear there's a way to input codes on them but I can't remember how to do it.

    How did you manage to input the code on that remote?

    The remote came already to run the HR24 and that is why it changes channels and other things.
    To control the volume you must program in a TV.
    Go here : https://www.directv.com/DTVAPP/content/remote_codes2
    follow the instructions to look for a code for your TV. Type in just the brand and more codes will pop up than if you type in the model number. An older TV might use the same code as the new TV.

    Press and hold Mute and Select at the same time, then watch for the green light on the end to flash 2 times,
    enter the code and then try it.
