I purchased a GE 24944 remote at Walmart for $5. It says on it that it can control most DTV's and has master volume programming, which is exactly what I need for my Magnavox DTV and Tube TV.
However when I looked at the code list, my Magnavox was not even listed. I later learned on GE website ( actually Jasco) that Version 4 remotes have the Magnavox code. When I looked at my remote, it says Version 3. So now I have to return it at Walmart and look for a Version 4 remote.
Question is, how do I know I'm getting a Version 4 remote? It says nowhere on the package. The only way for me to find out is to open up the package and look inside the battery compartment.
