First off, thanks for the replies. Any advice is appreciated.
I've tried the code TV/11758, but that just seems to be another code that doesn't work. Imputing that code, which the remote appears to except by "blinking twice," only yields me a dead remote, or, at least, one that isn't acknowledged by my VIZIO. I also tried code TV/0178, but that isn't read at all by the remote (No "blinking" happens to show acceptance.) I then input in the the original code back in, TV/11756, and was given back the limited functionality that I mentioned above. Again, this is the COMCAST remote that I'm using ( http://www.therazor.org/images/comcast_remote.jpg
), if that helps.
Just to be redundant, I then did as Kupakai suggested in post #49... starting with code TV/11758, followed by steps 1 - 6 with code 994, etc. All of this seems to be accepted by the COMCAST remote, but isn't acknowledged by my VIZIO. Then I put back in the original code TV/11756 that I had used, followed by inputing Kupakai's info for steps 1 - 6 and code 994 and applying it to UP ARROW KEY, which make the remote "Blink twice," but appears to make that particular key useless. Weird.
Again, with code TV/11756, I can access the menu and toggle through the menu options, but I am unable to press "OK" and access their individual functionality.
I've gone back and have tried a variety of codes provide in post #22, along with my original code TV/11756, and again all seem to be accepted by the COMCAST REMOTE, but the VIZIO doesn't read any of them.
As to the info that PETE W gave in post #48, I've already downloaded the manuel for the VIZIO P42 - SP42a, but the only codes that they provide are for, surprise... the VIZIO REMOTE.
What to do now? Should I just give in an buy the VIZIO UNIVERSAL REMOTE.
Thanks again guys!
