Is there any way to get a SW update for the remote? I just bought a new TV ($109 Slyvania 23" - good deal!), and the programming number is 733 (I know this because the remote on my 622 is able to turn on the set). It seems that the 508's remote only goes to 650 or so. So, I cannot use the remote to turn on and off the set, and adjust volume.

- Is there any way to update the remote?
- Can I use the second remote that came with the 622?
- I still have the remote for my 921. Can I program that remote to work with the 508?

I have tried to get the other remotes to work with the 508, but no luck. So any ideas would be appreciated!

I doubt that the remote's programming can be updated.

Have you tried entering the remote code for a different Sylvania TV? I suspect they keep the major functions (power on/off, volume, channel changing) on the same frequencies from model to model.

My 13" Sylvania code is 632. Try it.

Allie,

Yes, I tried the codes right up to the limit of the remote's capability. So, I need another solution.

Thanks for taking the time to reply!

which remote do you have? (on the back, what's the number?) if it's the original that came w/ the receiver, there may be a newer remote model offered if you set up an exchange. the newer remotes definitely have more codes. i've programmed my 6.2 remote to just about every device in my house :)
