    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.
