Got a Dynex flat screen TV, Best Buys brand. No remote code listed as expected but by using the remotes search for the code the remote will operate the TV. Is their any way to decipher what code it is using by counting the number of searches and the number of times you back up?
According to the following Dynex website you might try: Orion, Emerson, Memorex, Zenith, Sylvania, or Sansui brands for codes (I've also heard elsewhere to try Symphonic, Funai, and Admiral brands)
My RCA's UTV Setup Guide does list those above brands... So if you have some spare time you could experiment...
The below site does have several Dynex TV Models listed so you might be able to narrow that down a bit. They even include a phone # you can call for information... So if they might say "Your Model XYZ Serial # 123431 uses codes for a Sansui" that might narrow things down.
Figured it out. I could get the TV to work when I did the automatic search for codes. When you search for codes with the remote it starts off at 1000. Each time you push play to use the next group of codes it incriments up by 10. When the TV turns off you back up by one number each time you push reverse. I had to push play 20 times before the TV turned off which was 1200, then back up 9 times with reverse before the TV turned off. So, the code for the TV is 1191.
1191 is one of the Orion codes as lgodave said.
Glad that worked out. That might be some interesting information to include in the FAQ if it isn't already. Reverse lookup TV Codes. Considering UTV is getting almost 10 years out... this type of info. will be very helpful as newer TVs come to market.
FYI, about 4 years ago... someone here said my Westinghouse TV ran on Sony Codes. Which was nice considering I was using a Sony UTV with it (But I can setup for my RCA UTVs in the future...)
