I would greatly appreciate any help or insight. Thanks.
Rougue, you can confirm by doing a code Blink Back per the Manual 9xx instructions at the wiki link in my signature. Assume it is one of the above, try the following codes by just tapping, not holding, the setup button followed quickly by one of the codes below. The command is sent on the last digit. You can assign the working code permanently to your input button using the Advanced Code instructions on the same page.
11758 allows me to hit volume, but it doesn't even pull up the input options like the other code (11178) does. I can toggle between the inputs, but I can't actually select another input. This is super frustrating, and I appreciate your help.
I can't tell from your description which buttons do or don't work. Statements like "It will actually pull up the input options, but it won't allow you to select a new input." aren't useful to me for two reasons: 1) I don't know what "pull up" or "select" means, and 2) or what button you pressed to get the action.
There are two courses to take here. One is to try all 256 possible EFC numbers (00000 through 00255), while watching for some reaction from the TV. This is quicker than it sounds, but for example, the OK/Select function will only be active if a menu is already displayed. So some EFCs may have to be tried twice. See post #7 for instructions on how to try EFCs. Don't forget to write down the EFC number when you get a reaction!
The other way is quicker if it works, but isn't sure to provide an answer. The possible setup codes that may already be correctly programmed to run your TV are 10030, 10178, 11178, 11240, 11265, 11331, 11758, and 11993. Don't bother with 11993, it is a duplicate of 11265, but with some additional functions for a combo TV/DVD. 10178 is a superset of 11178, so no need to try both. I believe that all of these will control Power, Volume +/-, and Channel +/-. I expect 10030 to send a different signal than all others for Mute and Input (TV/VCR). The cursor buttons are different among 10030, 10178, 11265, 11331, and 11758. OK/Select has three values (00036, 00164, and 00251); 10030, 10178, and 11240 will provide these. Try each of these setup codes, noting which ones work in a given situation, as well as the button which caused a reaction. You may need to use the OEM remote to, for example, bring up the menu to see which setup code can issue a OK/Select signal. If yo u need to use multiple setup codes to cover all the needed functions, that's OK--we can use keymoves to get one setup code to do everything.
Right now, this is the functionality I have/don't have...
Hitting the volume button works.
Hitting the power button does nothing.
When I hit the "Input" button after hitting the "TV" button at the top, my TV displays all of the possible input selections in the upper left hand corner of my screen. It shows me my three HDMI inputs that I'm using right now on this TV (in addition to the other standard inputs I don't use), and if I use the white arrow up/down buttons, I can move the "cursor" to highlight whatever input I want. The problem is that I can't ever actually select that input. When I hit the red "OK/Select" button, I get a guide-like Xfinity mini-grid that shows the channel I'm watching and the two below it. The "Enter" button on the remote also fails to register with regard to the Input Selection screen.
Please let me know if that info gives you a better idea of what to try next. Thanks again. It sounds like we at least have some solid options either way.
Next, when you press OK/Select while in TV mode, look at the LEDs. Probably the Cable LED will light instead of TV, whereas the the arrow buttons will light the TV LED. That's a feature called Channel Lock which sends Ch+/-, the digits, and OK/Select to the cable box. It is generally a desirable thing, because you probably want to actually control the cable box when entering channel numbers even if the remote is in TV mode. One way around this is to disable Channel Lock, but I expect that you want most of the feature. Most people choose to use the 994 command (single device) to assign the appropriate EFC (probably 00164 but could be 00251) to the OK/Select button in TV mode. BTW, the Enter button has no IR signal associated with it--no LEDs flash, so we don't really expect the TV to respond.
Before you assign the OK/Select EFC, I'd like you to do a 980 (not 981) reset to get rid of any EFC/macro programming that the remote may already have. I suspect that the Power button isn't working now (but it did back in post #5) because of an inadvertent assignment to the Power button. Check once the 980 reset is done to see if Power works. Be sure to see if it turns off--some TVs only turn on by pressing Vol or Ch. If it doesn't, check to see that the TV LED lights, and then use a phone or other digital camera to look at the IR output to make sure that it flashes.
That helps quite a bit. I'll assume that you're using 11178 as a setup code, but I'd like you to check by blinking back the TV setup code using the 990 command. While you're at it, also blink back the signature of the remote using the 983 command. I expect the signature will be 3039
Just wanted to note that I did this part of the equation and did come up with the 11178 and 3039 numbers.
I'll start working on the next part now.
Use the single device keymove. Does Power work after the 980 reset?
Everything works perfectly now! I did the reset and got the Power to work, then I did the single device keymove and got the OK/Select button. Now I've got total functionality and can put the TV remote back in the drawer for good.
I really appreciate the sound advice. I know this is a first world problem, but it was annoying the hell out of me. Thanks again for the help.
Let me know if you ever have a Wii U remote tutorial.
I'm experiencing the same problem, but with the CW40T8GW. I was able to get most of the keys working using the 10000 setup code and my signature code is 25562. Now, what I've noticed with my remote is that pressing the "OK/Select" key does light up the TV LED, but it does not complete the input selection. There is an labeled "HD Zoom" that has "Enter" written above it that I think might work, however, even when in TV mode, pressing it lights up the CABLE LED. I tried doing the single device keymove using the two codes you provided to re-assign the OK/Select key, but didn't have any luck. Do you have any suggestions?
