    Setup Instructions
    1.Set the "Mode Switch" to TV.
    2.Press and hold the "Mute" button and the "Select" button until the visible LED blinks twice.
    3.Enter the 5 digit Code
    The following code is the most popular for your brand.
    10885 11577 10889 10890 11282 10451
    11217 10000* 10810*
    Codes listed with an asterisk (*) are possible alternate codes for your device. These alternate codes should operate the primary functions of your device in most cases (Power, Volume Up/Down, Mute).

    Never give up! Contact me first. Always available and online.

    Most codes aren't given for specific models. Here are all the codes I have for Westinghouse TVs: 10000, 11712, 10451, 10885, 10889, 10890, 11282, and 11577. If for some reason none of these work, you can check on www.directv.com/remotecodes and there maybe updated ones. Hopefully one of these does the trick. All the best!!

    How to program the white DIRECTV remote to your TV

    Look up the control codes for your DIRECTV remote control.
    Make sure your TV is turned on.
    Slide the mode switch at top of remote to "TV".
    Press and hold the MUTE button. This is located above the number 1 button.
    While still holding down MUTE, press and hold the SELECT button until the green light at the top of the remote flashes twice.
    Enter the first TV code you have. The green light on remote should flash twice.
    Aim remote at TV and press PWR button once. The TV should power off.
    Once the TV is able to power off/on and control the volume, slide the mode switch at the top of the remote back to the left (DIRECTV). Your remote is now programmed.
    If the TV does not power off, repeat steps 4, 5, 6, and 7, using the next code for your TV brand.

    If remote control fails to program using all available codes, try scanning for the code.
